    Agreed it's a short climb in the Boxing HW division, Hell if he can go 8-0 he would probably get a shot. Hell maybe even 4-0 if he beats "top contenders". The HW division in boxing is sorely lacking and the K brothers are getting bored.

    Well, he is calling out the top HW in the world, so if JDS indeed possessed the ability to KO Klitschko, he would get that kind of money. Even if he had to climb the ranks, if JDS is as good as he thinks he is, he would get a shot sooner than later if he kept winning.

    I don't think boxing will ever be resurrected, not with MMA in the picture. The top boxers are still currently making ridiculous paydays, but I think those days are numbered. MMA is on the rise, and boxing is on the decline. Once/if MMA surpasses boxing in popularity, we should see the big paydays shift from boxing to MMA.

    This really is people making mountains out of molehills... Whatever happened to that warrior mentality bullshit that people love to bring up? That whole, not afraid to fight anybody anywhere anytime approach that is supposed to be the "true spirit of a warrior."

    JDS should take notes from Jones poor media transgressions.

    According to Vitali JDS jabs like Wlad.

There are also a lot of fighters who weren't very technical but could brawl that have made good careers in boxing. Not to mention MMA fighters have a higher capacity for fight knowledge, as they have to incorporate all aspects of stand up and ground fighting. To think that the MMA elite wouldn't be able to develop great boxing technique seems odd. But I think we'll never know cause we haven't yet seen a great MMA fighter transition over.
    The timing, stance, defense, footwork, and even the gloves a are all completely different.

    What I find more odd is that you would discount a lifetime of training and crafting of skills catered specifically to that sport.

    And the kimbo comment is fucking stupid. Let him fight even a mid tier boxer and see what happens.

    Athleticism will carry you a long way but it is silly to think a guy could walk into the ring with a world champ and likely all time great and not only have success but finish him by ko.

    Nothing to get over, I don't really like dos santos anyway... But how hard is it to just answer with "well, it's a different sport... I don't care to speculate."

    No biggy, just think its pointless and can cause drama were there need not be any. I don't think he meant anything by it personally... But you could take it to mean he's less humble yada yada yada.
