In a recent YouTube video, Demetroius Johnson explained why he feels boxing is more exciting than MMA.

“Right now I feel like boxing is more exciting than mixed martial arts, right?” Johnson said, as quoted by “I mean, there are points of time where mixed martial arts is having its peaks, but right now you just have Ryan Garcia vs.

Devin Haney. Ryan Garcia just popped. Then you had Francis Ngannou, who got knocked out by Anthony Joshua. Then you just had the beautiful Tyson Fury and (Oleksandr) Usyk, just beat him, became the heavyweight champion. That fight was absolutely amazing.

From Round 1 to Round 12, I was at the edge of my seat”.
