As if a ****ing exhibition bout means anything anyway.

Just looking at the photos it appears Danza is having a laugh whereas old Bob is as serious a pig pissing. I'd put no stock in it either way.
Conrad's fight career was before he had major success with Wild Wild West. I find it difficult to believe he could arrange the outcomes of professional boxing matches as a struggling actor.

Regarding the fight with Danza, Conrad was 55 years old while Danza was 38, and a lot closer to his fighting career. Danza did come into it taking it lightly, but must have realized early on that red ass Conrad meant business. Still, Conrad was 55, a grandfather. Danza should have been able to adjust and getting avoided getting starched.

Either that... or Robert Conrad was a bad ass.
