    I have a friend that won a Gold Gloves tournament in a major midwest city in 1967 or so; the guy he beat in the finals went 10 with Ray Leonard as a pro. My friend was 5-1-1 as a pro with 1 KO and his last fight was in 1970.
    Around 1996 when he was in his late 40s, I saw him get in a fight. The guy he fought was a lifelong gang member, accustomed to violence and just out of prison; he was 20 years younger than my friend, a couple of inches taller and huge after 5 years of driving iron on the yard. There was probably a 75 pound weight difference.
    And my friend beat him stupid with just a jab- broke his nose, swelled both eyes almost shut, cut him above and below both eyes.
    I asked him why he only used the jab and he said "if I hit him with a hook or a right hand I might as well have killed him."

    Valuev is looking better and better as I think about it. He also worked as a bouncer in the past.

    Ha! I forgot I could go back to Figg and his skill with bladed weapons and clubs.

    Sounds like a virtual, online bar fight is about to start right now. Swig your beers and choose your teams!

    No love for Two Ton Tony? He comes highly recommended by Jackie Gleason. No joke.

    In a ring, Iron Mike is prepared to bite and break an arm. In a bar fight, that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Grrrr, sic ‘em Mike!

    Corbett. Yes, a surprise selection but .we need to get this fight started and the pompous assed insults that “Gentle Man” Jim was famous for will spark the melee in no time. In fact, Jim can just walk in wearing his “thong”, that’s a non verbal “threat” right there.

    Finally, a “fighter”, Kwai Chang Caine was well known for cleaning out bars. Beware the ominous signs. First, the old “I come in peace” false mantra, then the momentary pause for a motivating “flash back” and then Caine is ready to deflect knives, guns and what have you before tearing everybody a new one. Caine then finishes his glass of milk and leaves the bar and it’s patrons in “pieces”.

    Vince Vaughn and Steve Buscemi. Ah, but they weren’t boxers though, so scratch that.

    LOL in a bar fight? Sullivan was known to have ko'd perhaps hundreds of men in his life in saloons.

    Joe Frazier. Joe was cool, level headed but had no problem in that crazy bar scene.

    Mathew Saad Muhammad, a brick wall just in case you need a brick wall.

    Bernard Hopkins, sometimes you gotta get out and live to fight another day. Hopkins would figure it all out 5 years ahead of everyone else.

    By the way, who are our opponents in this barfight? Considering that we're prepping for it by recruiting heavyweight champion Mob enforcers, 300 pound ogre-looking ex bouncers, weapons experts, Riddick Bowe's entourage, a champ who KO'd Mitch Green, leaping dropkickers, and bareknuckle boxers, you'd think we were going up against the Chicago Bears or something.

    I'm just imagining what happens if our "barfight" turns out to consist of a single mouthy frat boy getting stomped and stabbed by Liston, Figg, and Riddick Bowe's groupies.

    Why Tua? I assume he was prone to violence outside the ring?

    Moe Dalitz is not a bad option. Just by himself. He wouldn't lift a hand or raise his voice. Sonny Liston didn't need to be told twice. He not only left the bar but checked out of hotel and got out of Dodge.
