What do you think is better a two channel overdrive? where usually the second channel is a boost?
or a decent overdrive which i like and separately a boost (like xotic juicer, beano boost, etc.)

Usually you choose an overdrive for its sound. There are only few of them that have also a variation with boost. And usually this is a specific boost that matches the overdrive.
However a booster is a relatively simple pedal

So basically go for the OD sound you love and match it with a booster

I agree with headache.
The boost included in an OD unit is a marketing gadget.

Bur on the other hand, there are some OD which have 2 real channels, and permit you to find your sound for every configuration.
(Visual sound Dr Jekyll, Seymour Duncan Twin Tube, Blackstar HT-Dual, etc...)
But here we are not talking about boost anymore!

headache is right. The sound of the main overdrive is what matters. The boost is usually a high freq boost to help the tubes push the signal better

2 real channels is great. Check out analogman's king-of-tone for example
