There is not much debate as to who the best boxers are in MMA, but it can be hard to distinguish who would do well if they were to just go from one sport to the other and be successful.

Some of the fighters on this list are so well rounded that they are just able to relax and outbox their opponents, without much concern for what may happen if their opponent decides to try something other than boxing.

That is what makes them good boxers and, more importantly, good boxers fighting in MMA.

Before you start reading this list, be aware that I left out boxers James Toney and Ray Mercer. Although they are the two best boxers to have a professional MMA fight, nobody really knows if they will compete again.

This is a list of the 15 best boxers actively fighting in MMA.
