And I know them when I see them too. I am more like you guys.

although, there are some good boxers in mma, see:

Junior Dos Santos
Anderson Silva
George St Pierre has a great jab and good punching technique
Jose Aldo

Those are just to name a few. I'm not sure how they would do in the boxing world though but I cant imagine anyone embarressing Junior Dos Santos.
Cruz can totally be made fun of in boxing. He would be humiliated immediately.

These guys you mentioned are good boxers, are not good boxers. They are good strikers in MMA but not good boxers. If you want to see good boxers, watch some of the fights folks here are recommending. This is not a diss to you either. This is like me saying there are good wrestlers in boxing: Berto, Hatton, Ward. Nonsense. They would get embarrased in wrestling.

Pick some fighters to follow with styles you like and follow them till the end.
