Boxing has only hand to hand while MMA has to fight hands, legs, wrestling. But why is Boxing harder to play than MMA?
In MMA, it is clear that the martial artist needs to know as many martial arts as possible and to maximize his potential and limit his opponent’s abilities in order to achieve the ultimate victory.
A MMA fighter must face many attacks from objects, fastening, punching, kicking, and knees. Obviously, MMA must pay attention to different aspects than MMA, but for that reason , MMA climax is not “hard” as Boxing peak. Because the rules were so wide, MMA had a time when it was misunderstood as a rule of life and death without rules
The code is strictly limited
Boxing is the most challenging stage in the martial arts. You must not use your feet, not use attorneys, not hugging, not turning, not running. However, you still have to ensure victory.
If in MMA, you cannot punch, you can kick, if you cannot kick, you can find a way to bring the game to the floor. Even non-professionals who watch MMA can speak up tactics. basically like that. However, in Boxing, if you cannot punch, what else will you do?
Constraint is the premise for creativity
Because only two fists are used to attack, Boxing fighters have only one concern is the opponent’s hands. All the focus was on each other’s fists, making the blow more visible and predictable than ever. Without being able to be clever or creative, Boxing-fighters would not be able to strike effectively.
To hit an opponent, you must be tricky.
In front of the big competitors, you must also be a big old fox to confront them. Gradually, the old tricks need to be replaced by the more advanced “tricks”. The beat, the psychology of hitting, the power begin to play so the trick becomes even more sophisticated and unpredictable.
