Well we all know boxers are not used to kicks, and have no ground game, but assuming they just brush up on that a little bit I think they can (but not necessarily will) beat Chuck or Sylvia. The thing with boxers is if they get inside and start swinging, try and get too close for the kicks, they can kick some ass. The hand speed, power, and combinations from a top notch boxer can end a fight real quick. With Chucks wide style, I think if he gets caught, the boxer will be able to capitalize and fallow it up with a combination. If a good boxer can go on the offensive with guys like Chuck or Tim, I think they have a pretty good chance of winning.

If Chuck fights his usual fight and just trades hands he would lose. But he does have wrestling skills. There not often seen but there there. He took Overeem down. If your a wrestler its not very hard to take down someone who doesnt wrestle. He could also win if he used kicks but I think the boxer would still have a chance he'd just have to stay close to him.

I know what u mean tho azmaniac I thought the exact same thing myself. But I still think guys like Chuck could use things in there arsenal that are mediocre and dont really work against other mma guys but would work against someone who doesnt know how to defend it.

I think Chuck would definatley win in a kickboxing match, he has GREAT leg kicks but he doesn't use um much any more. Definatley MMA for striking or ground game. He would kick and knee and elbow and shoot and the boxer would be like "Wait, hey, he's doing something besides punching. SHIT!" Chuck also has great hands and great power, I don't even think he would neccesarily loose to a boxer in boxing! Definatley to a champion level boxer but it really depends on the fighter. It is hard to say unless a specific boxer is named, and even then it's only speculation. The best way would be to have um fight. MMA guys like Chris Little have done fine in boxing, and he can't strike nearly as well as Chuck. Just cause Chuck is wild doesn't mean he'd loose, that wild attitude has worked against great MMA strikers too. HAVE SOME FAITH IN THE SPORT GUYS!
