Having a reasonable idea of Boxing and Wing Chun Merging them together confidently is not difficult.

First understanding that both disciplines were developed independently of each other world's apart.

Using and developed from body mechanics that suited the culture they were developed in.

Eventually boxing and Wing chun exchanged punches with one another and learned that even though both use fists they are both very different from each other.

There was a time when the element of surprise against each other existed but today there are hardly no more secrets to be found.

There are similarities in both boxing and in Wing chun but primarily they are both fundamentally very different.

So different in fact that they compliment each other if merging them is successful.

Boxing has been successfully merged with predominantly kicking styles/systems creating kick boxing.

Merging boxing and Wing chun for street applications fills a gaps that each respectively put a blind spot towards.

As for boxing in a clinch range, is where boxing usually gets broken up and restarted, appropriately this is where in Wing Chun is the place to be, up close in a confined space.

However Wing chun against an experienced boxer is at a great disadvantage, due the boxer being able to strike with combinations quickly from many angles and distances which is something which Wing chun is not trained to defend against.

Point being, it is essential for Wing chun to spar against boxers to develop the necessary qualities and skills that are truly important factors.

One point is to get hit and hit back with resistance from someone with real boxing experience and secondly to prioritise more on physical athleticism and body conditioning.

This athleticism was needed for kickboxing to take place in physically demanding bouts.

As all boxers knowing that NOT being in shape is a surefire thing towards becoming ineffective, where appropriately dedication towards fitness is a part of becoming proficient at fighting.

Of course there is the standpoint that both boxing and Wing chun both lack ground fighting skills where fights mostly end up on the ground, but not forgetting most fights start off standing.

Where merging boxing and Wing chun can help win towards the stand up game of winning while standing.

Where than looking at which is better boxing or Wing chun, it would be more advantageous to adopt from both, where both sides can help a fighter become more effective in the stand up game.

As if things do go to the ground, there are still striking potential alternatives for use.

Merging boxing and Wing chun, do you see any potential?

Well, in Bruce's movies, you see him utilize both. In a lot of his photos and personal videos, you see him utilize both. Bruce was probably the most eclectic MA of his day, and when he spoke about using style as no style, yeah, I see the potential.
