Skilled boxer competes in MMA – ends quickly and BRUTALLY
In this video from Russian amateur MMA league Arrows Street Fight, we see what happens when a talented young boxer fights an MMA fighter and don’t blink because this one doesn’t last very long.
While boxing can definitely be an effective form of self-defense, pure boxers tend to not do so well in MMA it seems, for the most part. This is most likely because boxing is only one limited aspect of fighting and a well-rounded MMA fighter simply has way more tools and way more ways to win using grappling, low kicks, clinching, etc.
However, choosing to stand and trade in boxing range with a boxer, particularly a high-level boxer, is a terrible mistake to make that the young MMA fighter in this video, unfortunately, makes himself.
As you can see in the video, the boxer absolutely smokes the MMA guy in about 3 seconds with a brutal barrage of very heavy, hooking punches. They almost look similar to the Russian ‘casting’ type corkscrew punches that Eastern block fighters like Igor Vovchanchyn and Fedor Emelianenko used to use back in the day to brutalize their opponents.
It just goes to show you that in the sport of MMA, you are always just one mistake away from losing. Check out this video to see the fatal mistake the MMA fighter makes in choosing to stand and trade with a boxer.
