Wow, impartial and fair boxing opinions. That’s refreshing

Probably the most reasonable mayweather out of the lot of them. But dos santos vs klitschko would be awesome to watch!

Dos Santos would have no chance against either Klitchko.

sadly, although I love JDS and know he could obviously beat the Klitschkos in an MMA or even a K1 fight, in a boxing match, both Klitschkos would win (especially Wlad). Too big, defence too solid, jab too powerful.

Uncle Mayweather makes the valid point that the Klitschkos do boxing full time. JDS has to work all facets of fighting.

Everything Jeff Mayweather says in this video I agree with. He also seems to be a casual fan of MMA which is refreshing from a boxing trainer.

He is right about Pacquiao as well (and I love Pacquiao).

I’d be curious to hear what he thinks about the Diaz brothers’ boxing skills.

You assume it’s a boxing match.

In a boxing match with boxing rules Dos Santos would get killed by Klitschko… But in an MMA match Junior would F*** those guys up, even if they stayed on the feet. Totally different sport than boxing, different footwork etc.

Dos Santos is a very good MMA fighter.But if he thinks he can beat any top 10 boxers , he must smoke weed.
MMA fighters and boxers must realise that each discipline is very different and neither can adapt to the other
If Dos santos fights Klitscko or any top 10 boxer, he will be ko’d very quickly and badly

in boxing klitcho would win, in mma jds would win. simply by adding kicks to the fight most boxers cannot cope.

In boxing JDS would get killed but:

JDS can(T)KO Vitali and Vladimir, in MMA.

Hey if he can take Carwin down….how are the Klitchko bros going to stop him from taking them down and GNP’ing the s*** out of them (thus taking home the TKO victory).

Or he could just GNP them to the point that they are wobbly….let them stand back up, and then go for the finish.

Ha, Not been funny Dos Santos would take their heads home

greengiant Says, in 12-18-2012 at 04:03:09 from    

@NoelG but dos santos would easily win in a real fight.Its much easier to train for one discipline.MMA fighters are just that,fighters not just boxers.

ToOcH911 Says, in 12-18-2012 at 04:53:33 from    

jds can win if they fight with mma gloves because one shot could end it but with boxing gloves he would just get jabbed to death for the entire fight

ElSocratico Says, in 12-18-2012 at 05:22:04 from    

Wow. I agreed w/ every single point of his. This guy is very articulate and level-headed.

luvfloyd Says, in 12-18-2012 at 05:30:15 from    

wonder how much Roy Nelson and others pay to have this guy as a boxing coach?

PitfighterZ Says, in 12-18-2012 at 12:15:58 from    

Good points, but Klitschko can’t sub Dos Santos either…
Dos Santos made a self-promoting remark when he said that, but I don’t think he would jump in and take Klitschko right away if he moved to boxing. Brazilians don’t really have a good track-record in Boxing and, Dos Santos could probably be a match for the current Brazilian champion, George Arias, but not against Klitschko or any top 10 in the world.

Can’t believe he can speak…very impressed.

Whoa whoa whoa guys… Says, in 12-18-2012 at 15:05:09 from    

Vitali Klitschko aka Dr. Ironfist:
Along with a huge height and reach advantage on Dos Santos he has a Phd in Sports Science. He was World Kickboxing champion 6 times over with a 34-1 record until he turned to Boxing where he is now World Champion with 45-2 record with 41 KO’s under his belt(80 amateur KO’s, and his 2 losses are from a hurt shoulder and cut, he has never actually lost a pro fight). That is the best knockout to fight ratio in heavyweight boxing history next to Rocky Marciano, who is only better by .5%. He even went to Japan and fought in Pancrase and won. He is an elected congressman in the Ukrainian parliament and a delegate of the Congress of the Council of Europe as well as a city councilman in Kiev after losing the Mayoral election. Oh and he grew up taking Sambo due to his father being a Soviet Air Force Major General. Avid chess player and huge charity donator and organizer for schools and children. Happily married with 3 children.

The guy is a f^cking stud. His life alone would KO Dos Santos. I won’t even get started with his bigger younger stronger also current Heavyweight champion of the world Wladimir. Together they own all the belts in the world, and would easily take JDS’s. But MMA still >Boxing.

Jeff Mayweather deserves a shot at commentating and announcing fights . Jeff speaks very well for all martial arts and boxing.

Sammy Says, in 12-18-2012 at 18:00:09 from    

vitali used to do kickboxing too. JDS would get knocked out standing up with Vitali, boxing or kickboxing

TheGMan Says, in 12-19-2012 at 14:27:39 from    

Clearly the least retarded Mayweather. I actually like this Mayweather.

Rugburn Says, in 12-19-2012 at 23:00:04 from    

@stu11-Thanks for the history lesson!!
But do you see the reason why K is so talented, he learned how to improve his boxing by learning many styles. The same is true of JDS and thats why he would do great in boxing.
Its harder to throw any combination in MMA and alot easier in Boxing. The reason why is you have more counters to worry about in an MMA fight. So if JDS enters boxing he will be able to get his combos off easier due to the fact that he already knows how to get them off in harder(MMA)situations.

paddedummy Says, in 12-20-2012 at 03:04:22 from    

A boxing trainer who actually specializes in defense!? That’s a refreshing change, every time I see a boxing trainer working with guys he’s got them hitting focus pads, I never see the trainer poking at the boxers with a pair of reach sticks. The closest thing I’ve seen was when Nazim Richardson would swing a towel at Shane Mosley
