Hmmm, it all depends who is on the fight card that day... however, I prefer a good MMA competition than a good boxing competition.

I love boxing but I think that MMA is so diverse and offers more variety. With 2 great fighters however both sports can be an adrenalin rush like nothing else.
Love all mma, and big UFC fan but I do miss Pride.
Big Supporter or British MMA so a shout out to Micheal Bisbing, Paul Taylor and Dan Hardy who are representing well and makeing their mark in the UFC!!!

I respect that some like boxing and I used to enjoy it, but now it is a bit like watching the lawn grow! I much prefer the pace and sudden KO's that happen in MMA. You dont get that as much in Boxing.

You don't get the sudden KO like you do in MMA in boxing thats for sure. I do however find it FAR from boring especially when you have 2 guys who are pure technichians and are masters of trade going at it 100 MPH.
Thats what I think we will get when Hatton Fights Pacman and then we have boxing at its VERY BEST!

Yeah I agree qwerty some great fights there..
I being a welshman and a fan of joe Calzaghe would also say his fights against Kessler, Lacy and Jones Jnr were epic.
I have to say however that Hattons fights against Kostya Tszyu, Jose Luis Castillo and Carlos Maussa were pure class and may not be best fights ever but were the most enjoyable fights I personally have seen.

Yes, I like Kostya Tszyu too - he is a scrapper and I like his entertaining style... I also enjoyed Joe Calzaghe's domination of Jeff Lacy which is actually the first time I saw Calzaghe fight.

Believe it or not, i've been an MMA fan longer than a boxing fan.
