footwork will not stop any decent wrestler from taking you down. and i meant them dealing with getting kicked. boxing has only the hands and occasional head to worry about as a threat. throw them in mma and theres 8 for striking and plus the takedowns. they wouldnt do too great if they committed themselves to boxing
