    Is there any active MMA fighter that could win rounds vs an active top 10 professional boxer at the same weight in a boxing match?
    If the answer is yes, what`s the most rounds they could win v a top boxer of the judges scorecard?

    The answer to that question is no. When forced to stand up and fight like men, instead of rolling around on the ground like animals, these clowns will loose all day, every day.

    The Sweet Science is just superior to this boring pseudo sport in every way.

    They're a few who I think could maybe win a couple of rounds. Styles make fights and theirs a few top 10 boxers especially in the bottom rung that would need some time to download info on some of the better MMA strikers before they begin picking em apart. I mean we sorta got this question answered when Connor won 3-4 rounds against Floyd it was Floyd out of his prime and coming out of retirement but I think that version of Floyd probably would have been in the lower rung of the welterweight top 10 if he was actually competing and not coming back for a one-off money fight.
    Of the MMA strikers who I think are capable of doing winning some rounds against a top world-class boxer today id say
    Petyr Yan, Max Holloway, Dustin Poirier, Connor McGregor, Jorge Masvidal, Nate Diaz, and Israel Adesanya come to mind. Maybe Ngannou just because of his freakish size power chin and speed. Winning rounds is doable but actually winning the bout is another story I could definitely see them beating some lower-level pros who are at the national and maybe continental level but winning against world-tier fighters is unlikely. Connors sparring partner Dylan Moran is a national-level Irish fighter and apparently, they were having very even back and forth sparring recently.

    If Ngannou is serious about trying out boxing. Lucas Browne is actually a really good entry-level opponent for him

    In every way? I`d say an MMA fighter kicks better than a boxer.
