    Maxie Rosenbloom no doubt. I would be clowned and goofed on for whatever the distance was, but Slapsie Maxie didn't generally believe in hurting anybody....and I would be fascinated by the style and methods of a great boxing wizard whom I only read about and not seen on film.

    I'd let Ivan Calderón dance around and pepper me for 12 rounds while I slowly plod around. Hopefully I last the distance.

    djanders has the right idea.

    Smallest weightclass female champion you can find. Early 20th century rules so you can just clinch your way to survival. Largest gloves available; preferably modern ones.

    I would pray that Zuri Lawrence somehow pulled off a miracle and became a champion by the time of my sentencing.

    108 pound starving, emaciated, bulimic, anorexic Manny Pacquiao.

    Yes, yes but instead of occasional, I would be going for LOTs of clinching - ignoring all warnings and points deductions.

    I’d make it up close and personal, chest to chest, Mano A Womano. I’m not launching a fist at that Babe for all the tea in China.

    Her nick is “Bang Bang”. Nice! There’s a fine line between pleasure and pain and in a bout v Louisa, the former would exceed the latter for me.

    Here’s a nice pic of Louisa - pretty sure she’s indicating to me “I’m coming for you!!”

    Yes, you are Louisa and I can hardly wait!

    Scratch the win on to your record right now, then it will be a win win for both us.

    Johnny Nelson of the Carlos DeLeon fight. He’d hug you to death but at least no head injuries.

    Where’s all these clowns who say Canelo and Floyd Mayweather Jr are frauds who really never fought anyone?

    Won’t even step up to face them in an imaginary fight?

    Just as a cop-out, I'd go with one of the old LPRR guys. Preferably not Sullivan, but maybe someone more inoffensive like Charlie Mitchell; who was a tremendous puncher in his own right, but also won the "Championship of England" by abusing a 3,000 year old Jem Mace. I'd love to take a round or two and actually attempt to win, or at the very least get an idea of how adept their wrestling was at that time. I'm curious what they would think of the more exotic takedowns from Judo or Sambo being used against them. I'm no Judoka, but I'm sure my wealth of knowledge from 30-second videos I've incorrectly memorized from YouTube would blow their minds.

    After that goes terribly, I would break out the eponymous Tug Wilson tactics and d1ck around from rounds 3-15 avoiding contact by any means necessary - running, somersaulting, powersliding. If he attempted to make a rush, I would just take a knee and the round would end instantly. Maybe if I knew I could absolutely get away with it, I would throw a Hail Mary pivot punch during the last round and hope to catch him slipping.
