Super Scientifical Powers -
Being crowned the best boxer in MMA is like winning the special olympics.
At the elite level, in divisions like batamweight, featherweight and lightweight, things have gotten much better but its still not great. And most of what you see outside of those divisions is fucking laughable. Footwork is bad, defense is bad, shot selection is bad, technique is bad, feinting and creating openings is bad, rhythm manipulation and varying power, countering... its all poor. Even McGregor, who not long ago people were calliing the best boxer in MMA, cant throw his left straight without throwing himself off balance, hes constantly over reaching, the guy got by on timing and shitty opponents not closing distance responsibly.
"But Conor reaches with his lefts, and is off balance." That's such amature hour troll garbage. When ever anyone says that, that's when you know that person doesn't know shit about boxing, or fighting, and is just repeating what ever he's read over the internet. I bet you don't even know what it means to be in position. I bet you don't know anything about transferring weight.
When Pacquiao knocked down Thurman, while Thurman was backpeddaling, you could've taken a screen cap of Pacquiao's feet, and claimed he was "off balance and reaching."
But the important thing is, he kept himself in position with his weight to capitalise, while his opponent did not have his stance or weight with him while trying to evade. You have to look at sequences in full (as they flow). You can't recognize that when Conor is fighting because you don't actually know boxing. Conor was landing his left leads on Floyd in a boxing ring
So by your "logic" (or more like, lack of) then what does that say about the level of boxing in boxing?
"Omg Floyd reaching with his right lead, and off balance"
Conor was having a field day slipping Floyd's right leads and countering with uppercuts.
Newbs here are so blinded by their hatred of Conor, they will even deny the wins he has, which is as factual as you can get, so of course they are going to deny the obvious that Conor is far and away the best boxer MMA history has ever seen at a championship level. Who ever you "think" is a better boxer, i can break down all their flaws for you. They have probably already been out struck on the feet or knocked out. And at the end of the day, ask yourself truly, "would my pick have been able to compete with Floyd in a boxing ring?" Everyone deep down inside knows the correct answer to that. The answer is, Conor is far and away the best boxer in MMA history at a championship level. It's that simple. His performance against Floyd cements that, and is as concrete as it gets.
