Speaking on his own podcast over Youtube, Sean O’malley has addressed the argument of best boxer in MMA.
“Now, Petr (Yan) is probably up there for sure. Max (Holloway) is up there, Petr doesn’t get hit as much. If you’re saying like, ‘What’s the best boxer?’ I’d say Floyd Mayweather; he hits and doesn’t get hit. So, I think that’s part of his (Yan’s); hit and not getting hit. As far as just throwing hands and combos and cardio, yeah, Max is up there.”Sean O’Malley via youtube
