    Floyd landed far more than Wlad did v Fury and got hit far les than Lewis did v Vitali.

    Ngannou would destroy Whyte with powerful leg kicks, a boxer can`t take leg kicks and can`t defend against them at all.

    Reach matters.

    Sugar ''Money'' Mac would break Floyd in two early doors even if they just allowed him to use kicks

    I think your reading of that fight is wrong.

    When you spar someone who is essentially new to boxing and you don't want to put it on them, you fight exactly as Floyd fought. Gloves up, within their range and walk forward. Basically just letting the other guy play. The corner footage between rounds shows you how seriously Floyd was taking that fight.

    As for Wlad-Fury, the range did matter but not as much as Fury's manipulation of it. His style that night was just all wrong for someone like Wlad

    I like that idea, but leg kicks are excruciating if you've never absorbed one before.

    Well Whyte used to be a kickboxer so I'm assuming he would have some idea of how to avoid them.

    Mma fighters chins are awful so pretty much anything dillian lands above the nipples will end in a brutal ko

    It'd be interesting

    I would give Whyte a far greater chance inside the cage with Ngannou, than I would any other boxer. Whyte is a former kickboxer and Ngannou is mostly relying on striking.

    Im not saying it happens all the time but it is possible for a boxer to defeat someone trained in kicks take Frans Botha for example far past his prime he defeated 2 Kickboxing legends in Kickboxing

    And this Amatuer Boxer defeating an Amateur Kickboxer though under dubious circumstances the people filming this seem to be on the side of the boxer and when the boxer is almost KOd they give the boxer time to recover

    Non of these fighters were even near the level of an elite MMA fighter, their skills are insane, Ngannou`s strength is insane.

    Ngannou`s kicks are far more powerful than Dillian`s and his trainers are elite.

    Dillian would handle Ngannou. Ngannou's striking is elementary at best his only tactic is to overwhelm fighters. He obviously carries power but nothing Dill hasn't seen before. Early KO for Dillian under boxing or kickboxing rules and Ngannou is not great on the ground either. Even his kicks are nothing like Derrick Lewis's for example. Take the fight, although as Ngannou has not spoken about this it's pretty obvious he's not interested, he is on the verge of a UFC title shot anyway.

    How strong is Whyte in the clinches? A kickboxing bout would be a happy mediumish
