Boxing or Mixed Martial Arts — What fighting sport do you like more?
Since Pacquiao has been unable to meet pre-fight demands with Floyd Mayweather Jr. (who most consider the other best pound-for-pound boxer in the world), his match tonight with Mosley is considered to be one of the biggest boxing events since Pacquiao’s match with Oscar de la Hoya in 2008.
In the past several decades, boxing has made names like Muhammad Ali, Sugar Ray Robinson, George Foreman, Joe Louis and Jake LaMotta legends, yet taken a backseat in the past several years to Mixed Martial Arts fighting.
Question is…What fighting sport do you prefer — Boxing or Mixed Martial Arts? Looking forward to the boxing match tonight?

as i fight in mma and i used to do boxing i can say mma is a far better far tougher sport than boxing. boxing you only have to worry about hands mma on the other hand you have boxing muay thai judo sambo karate the ground game with the elbows wrestling jiu-jitsu. boxing is very easy compared to mma because in mma you have to be great at all aspects of the game to be successful. so sorry lewis boxing can not even compete with mma when it comes to talent or the excitement.

boxing’s a much better sport, MMA in divisions such as the UFC is too brutal for a sport in my opinion, but it’s better in a self defense situation
