    Liston didn't know what mercy meant

    Foreman is the last person I would ever want to fight. That man was a straight up monster. I take that back, beating a monster isnt as impossible as beating Foreman. Nothing that Tyson or Liston have done scared me as much as the beating Foreman did on Frazier. Also the way Foreman fought Roman still gives me nightmares. I think he wanted to murder him

    I guess I would pick Tyson because I think it would be over the quickest...I should be unconscious within a few seconds of the fight starting. Plus Tyson seemed to go straight to the head against a lot of the guys he was clearly superior to. I would want to minimize body shots as much as possible.

    Foreman is a hero of mine, so I'd happy **** blood for 3 days after a couple body shots to say I fought prime George

    I would’ve picked Liston on the off chance that someone might have paid him off to take a dive.

    Tbf a first round KO for someone like any of us would have some real good odds for a few 'lucky' gamblers

    George Foreman. On the extremely slim chance the fight's in Zaire.

    Foreman. But only because I'd be trying for the 4-minute mile.

    Tyson would KO you with a single shot and you would live to tell the tale.

    Maxie would hit you with 700 punches and give you lasting brain damage.

    Foreman, because he was the slowest so I'd only get hit once. Tyson had fast enough hands to maybe hit me again as I was falling down.

    Doesn't matter to me. It's like picking the guns for you firing squad. "Do you want a line up 12 gauge shot guns, 30.06 rifles, or a series of cannons to take you out?"

    If we're talking Old Foreman then definitely him. He would be merciful. Other than that it really wouldn't matter although I think Tyson would be the quickest.

    Liston, because his mob bosses would tell him to take a dive against me because I’d be a ten thousand to one underdog

    Gotta be Sonny. If you live through it you would have a helluva story to tell people at parties. Let tell about the time I fought Sonny Liston.

    To be serious pain is pain. A broken neck is a broken neck.
