My Choices: Roberto Duran, Jack Dempsey, and Sonny Liston
Dempsey , Tyson , Liston
Tyson, Golota and Carlos Monzon
Someone with a demonstrated willingness to hurt people illegally would be a good bet. Sullivan, Tyson, Liston.
Overkill for pretty much any barfight, unless I've stumbled upon a rowdy get-together of some football team or other.
Valuev, Tyson Fury and Ustinov.
There won't be much space for anybody else to fit into the bar.
Actually, on second thought, I pick Riddick Bowe instead of Sullivan. Bowe comes with a violent entourage.
I have a friend that is 17-15 as a pro. His uncle got into some trouble in a bar one night and he went to get him and knocked out 4 guys. And he weighs 140 pounds.
John L Sullivan
Dempsey, sullivan, Jeffries, tex cobb, chuck wiggins
Duran is top 10 all time p4p, but he's small. For this scenario, you need 3 HWs.
Since a bar fight ain't about winning on points, you need brawler type boxers, who can slug it out, take and receive. So, Ali type boxers are useless in such a scenario.
Good picks would be guys like:
- Sonny Liston, since he was used to such fights and excelled in them.
- Mike Tyson 0 due to his incredible defense, speed and combos;
- Riddick Bowe, cause he was great on the inside;
- 90s Foreman, due to his incredible chin and punching power.
- a roided Evander Holyfield, who could receive and counter back.
Hell, even Wilder and Fury would do very well.
Good picks Tyson and Liston. Sullivan not so much. He's too ancient and his skillset way too poor for modern times.

Ali would beat up a saloon full of tough guys. Every time he hit somebody- with any punch, even a jab- he would put them out of commission.
Even a "feather fist" like Malignaggi would really hurt the average individual with a jab.
Sullivan's skillset is too poor for modern bars and he's too ancient. I bet average male hits harder now than Sullivan, cause they are more modern!
