In a strictly boxing match, of course.
But in an MMA match, a boxer would get destroyed just like any one dimensional fighter would get destroyed in MMA. Unless a boxer was also a former solid collegiate wrestler or had some worthwhile ground experience, it's unlikely they'd have the necessary sprawl to keep the fight on the feet. And when the fight hits the ground, it's over since a boxer would be out of his realm and completely helpless.
If a Sherk vs. Mayweather MMA match would ever happen, that fight would be on the ground in less than 15 seconds, because I'm pretty certain Mayweather wouldn't have the type of sprawl necessary to stuff a Sherk takedown. Once on the ground, that fight would probably be over within another 90 seconds either from ground'n pound or an easy submission. Mayweather wouldn't have any idea what in the world to do with a guy like Sherk on top of him on the ground.
Does anybody really
think Pretty Boy could stop this?
That's in slow motion, and take a look at the clock. That's less than two seconds from shoot to full out slam. Mayweather wouldn't have a prayer of preventing that from happening to him.
