clearly James Toney has the best boxing technique

I picked Diaz bros as they have picked apart some great strikers in their divisions. JDS really only faced one great striker, and Cro Cop was a shell of his PRIDE/K1 days.

I wish we got to see how JDS would fare vs Overeem. That could sway my pov

I was going to try and take the easy way out and say it depends on the stylistic match they faced in a boxing match but then I saw you're just talking boxing in MMA. But I guess I'm still taking an easy way out. Diaz offensively, JDS defensively. I love the body shots the Diaz brothers and JDS throw. My favorite two boxers ever were Roy Jones Jr. and Prince Nasim Hamed which if you watched boxing in the 90's, you can probably tell from that that I'm not a fan of fighters who use technique that boxing purists would label technically sound. I like fighters that have enough confidence in their skills to put their chin out, hands by their knees, and then knock you out. I don't care much for shell fighters who have the best technique but fight to win scorecards.

I don't see much great technique in the Diaz brothers striking, I mean it's good... But Condit proved that Nate has nothing when his opponent isn't backed to the cage covering up.

ask most pro boxers and they will say JDS.

he has the best techinque i have seen of any MMA fighter, BJ was the 2nd best. The Diaz brothers i think do a better job of implementing there boxing very well and very effectivily but they dont have the best boxing, the way they stand and throw punches isnt the best techincally speaking.

JDS' boxing skill is untouchable at HW. While I think Nate might have the best boxing at 155, GSP would outsrike Nick six ways to Sunday at 170.

It's tough cause they're such different styles. I love how Nate and Nick whip punches in ridiculous volume, but Dos Santos so so accurate and powerful and I think he has the better overall technique
