There is a rift between boxing and MMA, and it's kind of silly if you ask me.  They are two very different sports and both are great.  Guys like Bob Arum constantly try to diminish MMA, but it's usually sour grapes.  In the case of the boxers themselves, however, it's a different story.  Many great boxers are fans of MMA, including Mike Tyson, Roy Jones Jr., Oscar De La Hoya and the list goes on and on.  Added to that list now is Wladimir Klitschko.  In this video, Klitschko gives props to MMA fighters and admits that MMA involves too many different skills for him to even contemplate fighting in a cage.  It's nice to the boxing's HW champ showing respect to the sport of mixed martial arts.  Here's the video.
