In a bare knuckle fight if you land a neat fisted punch first you can win against anyone because of the pain, I know this because a Somalian broke my jaw and there`s no reason why he couldn`t break an MMA fighter`s jaw either.
Who was it ??? I bet he was tanked up to the point he could hardly stand. That said, a fat angry bird chinned me once, blind sided me and sent me tottering on my heels lol..If bouncers hadn't of seen it and kicked her out I would've probably levelled her. I was drunk and came with in a fraction of going down, drink and being blind sided, even by a fat woman can be a problem..
Disagree, chins are different
I am 23 years old, from Denmark. I started watching boxing because of Mikkel Kessler, when i was about 10 years old. The first boxing match i remember were Kessler vs Calzaghe in Cardiff in 2007. I have followed the sport since and for the last 5-6 years, i've sat up all night till 6-7 in the morning to watch the late main-events from the US every 2nd or 3rd weekend.
I've only followed MMA, mostly UFC, in like 5 years, since Jones vs Gustafsson. In the last 3 years, i've only missed a few events - and most of them also requires me being up till 5-6-7 in the morning.
The biggest difference for me is the cards. In boxing the up- and coming talents are matched with opponents they beat 10 times out of 10. It's often just a wait for the main-event. In UFC every fight has the potential of being competitive, because there is so many factors. So even though i have followed boxing twice as long, i much rather watch a UFC card than a boxing card - based on competitiveness and excitement.
I have no intention to bash either boxing or MMA, but for me, MMA/UFC got the edge. It isn't a 5-6 hour long wait for the main-event.
A good chin won`t be unbreakable though.
I posted a link to the article above as a reply to Birmingham, I`ve never heard of the boxer and after he took the woman to court she sent him a letter saying good luck in your next fight, cringe!
That was clearly an exhibition fight,Floyd carried the fight.
