That's actually a pretty hard choice. Both are equally awesome. Look at Rourke in Iron Man 2 and Stallone in The Expendables, and it's pretty much a crap shoot IMO.

How about Let's Not, since this is a thread about boxing, not Random Celebrity Fights.

Here, have a video of Pacman making the most of the Sweet Science... on Margarito's face.

A Fine Example of Boxing.

Ooh. Good question for once, Roy. Nice match-up.

Let's see... Tyson's a compact puncher, and requires getting in close to do the usual Tyson damage. Foreman's got height and reach, plus the formidable Foreman Fists... well, it depends on which one is hungrier for the win, really.

If it's both in their prime, we get quite a match. I see Tyson getting the win through pure bullheaded bluster if he can hit Foreman hard enough to put him down in the early rounds, but if Foreman lasts longer than Round 4 and 5, Tyson's gonna be super winded and screwed.

But Post-Ali Grill Man Foreman would wipe the floor with Tyson, prime or not. Seems unlikely, yes, but Post-Ali Foreman had some serious focus, serious drive, and he was super hungry for his wins, even though he was old and making a comeback. He also fought smart at that time, taking his time in the fight, wearing the other guy down with jabs and body blows before going for the upper hooks and straights, as opposed to starting out swinging like his younger years.

You don't seem to understand there's something called a weight-class. Holyfield's lowest weight-class was Light-Heavyweight, while De La Hoya's highest was Middleweight.

Same problem with Lohan vs. Spears--higher weight-class trumps lower.

Holyfield, no contest. Roy, dude, you might as well be asking Tyson vs Pacquaio.

Gotta keep the weight-class in mind.

You don't need to be bigger than an opponent to take them out. Speed is a key factor in Boxing and the smaller guys have quite a bit of it.

Are you arguing against weight classes, or simply denying their existence?

Sure, in street fighting an undersized fighter could possibly overcome their heavier opponent, no one's arguing that. However, in professional boxing, weight classes establish an even, fair match. Heavyweights dominate with stronger punches--inflicting more knockouts, pound for pound; while featherweights utilize their staggering speed to overcome an opponent. Overall, weight classes help ensure fair, consistent victories.

Watching Pacquaio Vs Mosley right now. I'm into Round 3 and just saw Mosley hit the mat from his face absorbing Pac's combo. It's getting pretty wild right now. Pacman's having to dig in pretty deep cuz of Mosley's long reach, but as I just saw, Pac's got more than enough power to floor Mosley, he just has to reach the guy's damn chin.

I"ll let you guys know how it turns out.

Edit: Round 10. This is like the 15th time they've accidentally headbutted each other. It's Thunderdome out there... Mosley's running scared by now, Pac's scared him around the ring. But Mos's managed to hit Pac a few times... emphasis on few. He's ramped up his defense and-- Oh crap, Mosley straight-up shoved Pac to the mat, ref counted it, commentators saying wrong call. Audience is furious, but Pac looked like he was laughing when he got up. Doesn't even let it bother him, he's so chill, haha.

Edit 2: Sooo Pacman won! Foregone conclusion since Mosley played defensive the whole time, after trying to stand toe-to-toe with the Pac in early rounds and finding out it was a bad idea. Dude's classy enough to chill with Pac for the post-fight interview, with a screwed-up face while Pac looks like he barely broke a sweat. Great fight! A little underwhelming after the frenzy that was Margarito, though.

I've only seen one boxing match before, and it was pretty good.

I'm interested in watching more though.

A lot better than I originally thought. I don't know if I have any channels that have it though.
