I would say boxing is more dangerous since the main target is your opponent's head.

I also believe kickboxing, mma, boxing, etc should do away with allowing weight cutting.

One of the issues is that boxing gloves allow you to put more power (strength in motion) into your punches than a MMA style glove. Combine that with the fact you do not need to guard the legs and it also means you can more dependably put your hips and legs into the punch while shifting your upper body weight into the punch. Taken together you are simply allowing the human body to put more energy into destructive head strikes than a MMA would deliver.

As someone who has done boxing, PKA kick boxing (yeah I am an old timer) and some MMA, the punches in MMA are simply different than those in boxing. Kick boxing punches were almost identical to standard boxing only backfist and spinning back fist was allowed. The glove in PKA were different also, but because you did not have to defend against take downs you could use the same body mechanics as standard boxers. As I said that is not true in MMA.

Exactly, also in most MMA fights ive seen, it's a wrap after a couple of rounds usually. In boxing you used to get fifteen rounds of chin music, no less than 10 or 12 rounds if theres no knock out, thus creating longer instances of punishment.
