Default If you had to spill your pint in one heavyweight champion's lap in their prime

Who would be your first choice and who your last choice from a point of view of not getting hurt.

1st -- Ali. He had a public image to support, and brawling wouldn't look good. Perhaps Tunney and Lennox.

Final -- Liston


Other variables include:
Sullivan might end up either beating me up (because he's drunk) or slapping me on the back and ordering me another. Holmes would let it go, and then sulk about it for the next twenty years. Ruiz crushes me to death.

First choice-Max Baer

He had a good sense of humour and would not dare to hit me because he would be afraid of killing me.

Second choice-Floyd Patterson

Seems quite a mild mannered sort of chap. Would probably let me live.

Last choice-John L Sullivan

I just know that this would end badly.

First choice:

Primo Carnera, he was a good human who wasnīt that bad and couldnīt get angry that quick.

Last choice:

Hector Camacho, I would be afraid that he want to kiss me and more...

no seriously, John L. Sullivan was a brutal streetfighter, when he got provocated he could get mad quickly...

After I dumped my pint in Sonny Liston's lap, I'd backhand him across the face and tell him to go buy me another.













............Years later, a passerby would find a portion of my crushed jaw, the only evidence of what would follow the pint-spilling issue.

1st-Muhammad Ali because he needed to protect his image and if things got physical I could tackle him.

Last-Sonny Liston. Liston would probably get up and try to kill me and I would have to run as fast as I could the other way. Liston wasn't that fast though so I could maybe outrun him. Foreman could be worse because a young one probably would have caught up to me

Ruiz would instantly bear hug you to the ground

1st: Floyd Patterson or Frank Bruno both seemed like nice guys who would let it go.

Last: Evander Holyfield the last thing I want is to be head butted while I'm trying to drink my re-fill. And Riddick Bowe his entourage would jump me and kick my ass causing a riot meaning I not only get beat by Bowe's entourage but also by the police for possession of coloured skin.

Tommy Burns he was small so I tink I could take him, just kidding. I wouldn't want to spill my beer on anyone. Heavyweight champion or not.

There are so many Tyson lovers here, I'd think they'd jump at the chance to spill their beer in his lap, if only for the excuse to slurp it up.





..............I'm kidding. I kid.

First Ike Ibeabuchi... i would convince him that the same Demons that didn't want him to get on that plane made me spill that beer. He'd forgive me and not use Psycho Pugilism on me.

Joe Louis also seemed like a very calm, nice person in the non-fighting footage that i've seen of him.


Last one would be Muhammad Ali. Those crazy ****ers from the Nation Of Islam would probably kill me or force me to post under the name "MuhammadPontius" here.

1st Rocky Marciano, Or Joe Louis. I think you guys are over rated Liston here. He may chase after you if he didnt like you.

last, I may agree with ChrisPontius here.
MuhammadDempsey lol.

There was one ocasion when a drunken man took a swing at Louis while he was signing autographs with Jessie Owens. He said-

"What the hell did you do that for?"

The reply came

"I like to beat up a n***** every week and there is no n***** bigger than Joe f***** Louis"

Louis raised his hands and adopted the look that he used to intimidate oponents before the opening bell and the man backed away. He then said something equaly unplesant to Jessie Owens who laid into him and had to be pulled off by Louis.

So Louis could be one cool customer.
