Boxing & MMA

What is Boxing?

Now I'm sure most of us are aware that Boxing is the combat sport of two people throwing punches at each other. However, we need to be more precise in identifying what our collection covers.

Thus, Boxing is the sport where two combatants fight using fists while wearing Boxing MMA gear such as protective gloves, hand wraps, and mouth guards for a predetermined amount of time following the Queensberry Rules. All this takes place in a Boxing ring in front of judges in a boxing ring. With famous Boxers including Muhammad Ali, Floyd Mayweather, Tyson Fury, and more.

What is MMA Fighting?

When the term MMA Fighting comes up, the image that comes to mind is of two lads or lasses decked out in what we think of as Boxing MMA gear beating each other up in the UFC's Octagon, or perhaps it's a person that comes to mind, maybe Conner McGregor or Ronda Rousey. However, it is rare to find people that understand what MMA entails.

MMA Fighting is a full-contact combat sport based on striking, grappling, and ground fighting, which mixes techniques from various combat sports and martial arts from all over the global world to knock out or submit one's opponents in compliance with the sports regulations. The disciplines are usually some combination of Catch-as-catch-can Wrestling, Karate, BJJ (Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu), Maui Thai, Judo, Kung Fu, Taekwondo, Capoeira, and more.

What do Boxing & MMA have in common?

They are both Combat sports, and Boxing is one of the sports MMA borrows from, along with those previously mentioned. The sport is one of the primary striking bases for many fighters, with Boxing punches accounting for the vast majority of strikes, knockdowns, and KOs in MMA matches.

Other aspects of Boxing also prove valuable in the cage. Its footwork, combinations, and defensive techniques like slips, head movement, and stance helping practitioners get an edge on their opponents. Additionally, they use similar training equipment and gear with the phrase "Boxing MMA gear" covering every essential - there are, however, some stylistic differences for maximum effectiveness. For example, MMA fighting gloves have their fingers exposed for better movement, whereas Boxing gloves are fully covered and difficult to manoeuvre.
