Probably JDS.

Anderson may be better, but he kicks too much to be able to truly guage his pure boxing ability.

Silva and it has been stated by Freddie Roach who says Silva understands the distance and timing better than anyone else in the UFC. He used to say BJ then he met Anderson.

JStrongMMA -  I think people on this thread are confusing striking and boxing. Silva is a phenomenal striker...but the best boxer? I don't think so. Phone Post


Defense also figures into this (boxing) so yea AS is the answer. Jack Slack supports this answer too BTW.

Jens Pulver would have to be my choice. He could have been a solid pro if he chose to stick with that. Phone Post

myjawhurts - Technically it's James Toney.
He was crap at mma but a world champ in boxing(and talking).
If Tyson fury has signed, then a 20-0 pro boxer is obviously the best boxer.
Marcus Davis, Chris Lytle all boxed pro so they deserve an honourable mention. Phone Post 3.0

It's Anderson Silva, followed by Juanito trained Rampage, for me. He was a brilliant counter puncher, who actually kept his hands up and, ya know, defended himself, not playing the barroom brawler game.

There isn't a single MMA fighter with pro boxing experience (even my homie Sakara) that was any good at boxing. If they were, they wouldn't be fighting MMA. At best, some MMA guys beat some lesser ham and eggers in boxing matches.

There are MMA guys with nice offensive boxing (Diaz, Sakara, Pearson, Pickett, Corberry, Noons, Pulver, Penn, Daley, Gomi, Edgar, Nogs, JDS, etc.) but they get hit too much, way too much

PermitMeFisticuffsBrother - Maldonado
Maldonado's boxing is horrible. His hands are down chin's up and eats punches from bell to bell. Check who he fought on boxrec. I think one has an even record all the rest are heavy losing records. Phone Post 3.0

How the fuck did BJ get so many votes? If he's the best, what does that make Diaz, GSP, Frankie? Who all boxed him up? Oh but his technique.. gimme a break

McGregor is a solid boxer based on what I have seen. I know he was an amateur national champion in Ireland as well so I'm looking forward to seeing him again. Phone Post
He's a good solid boxer who will be a future champ Phone Post
