Noons wants Pacquiao, in cage and ring

by Percy Crawford | source:

Having already compiled an impressive mixed martial arts record of 10-2, Noons may be the only fighter who also sports a similar professional boxing record (11-2, 5 KOs).

"I would love to welcome Pacquiao into MMA," said Noons. "It would be an ideal situation for him because I don't take guys down to the ground, and after that's all said and done in the cage, I would be willing to step inside of the ring with him too, something we all knew Randy Couture wouldn't do with James Toney."

Noons also said he'd welcome a boxing match with Pacquiao's nemesis, Floyd Mayweather. "I know Floyd isn't looking to do MMA, but I would still be willing to fight Mayweather and Pacquiao in a boxing match and both camps h ave been reached, so we will see what happens ... Both camps have been reached and both camps were very interested."

Only time will tell if any of these bouts ever come to fruition, but you have to applaud Noons for his guts and willingness to fight anyone, both inside the cage and the squared circle. While some fighters, like Jeremy Williams, Francois Botha, Ray Mercer, and more recently James Toney, have actually done it, other fighters, like Anderson Silva, Nick Diaz, King Mo Lawal, and now Vitor Belfort, are eager to give it a try. It makes you wonder if it's time for fans to realize that these two sports will co-exist.

 people can't be this stupid?? "Floyd does not have KO power above 140.   Period.  20 lbs above that is KJ Noons who will be substantially bigger.  Floyd has no chance in hell knocking him out. Don't cite the Krazy Horse KO either.  KH has more natural KO power and is naturally bigger.  Fight happened with smaller gloves as well.  Mayweather will wear his custom pillows to protect his hands. This fight will be great for MMA.  Floyd takes Noons to a decision in boxing. Once again proving the superiority of MMA fighters.  Because we all know Floyd would get grounded and choked in the first round of an MMA fight. "

Boxers are good punchers. Nothing more; nothing less. When did people start believing they are superior athletes in every other way?
