And no Boxing is not better than MMA on any day, Boxing has 100 million weight classes and promotions and Boxing doesn't give people the fights they wanna see either. The UFC has gave or atleast tried to give us GSP/Diaz, Lesnar/Overeem, JDS/Overeem, Silva/Sonnen 2, and Jones/Evans just to name a few, the one fight everyone in Boxing wants to see hasn't happened and it should have happened 2 years ago.
Boxing is a fun sport but the politics involved in it have absolutely destroyed it.
If you're going to base the boxing part on one fight, then I think the fairest comparison to MMA is Silva/GSP. That is the one fight everyone in MMA wants to see and it's not likely to ever happen.
