:laugh::laugh: I think I'll just stick to being my poor ass self, right now I'm hard pressed to think of any boxer who ended up right.....No rules man. The original post says one, but who cares? You can do it your way, but I think what makes picking only one guy so interesting is that everyone has drawbacks. You have to weigh the good and the bad to find a medium. It will be fun seeing where members find their medium.
Another stipulation: This is current. For example: If you pick Mike Tyson you have been to jail, charged with rape, and are hurting for cash right now.
If you pick Floyd you are healthy and wealthy but just got robbed, and maybe 25 people like you.
Exactly, that's the point! I'm having trouble picking as well. If posters take this somewhat seriously it could end up being really interesting.:laugh::laugh: I think I'll just stick to being my poor ass self, right now I'm hard pressed to think of any boxer who ended up right.....
Wow, this is not a **** thread! It says "if you could BE any boxer" not "if you could DO any boxer."Oscar Delahoya - Whether or not he was the best fighter of this generation he is definently in the conversation. He faught the best. He was able to hang with the best even when he was past his best. He will be remembered forever in boxing because of his looks alone. His ability is amazing as well. In his prime he was an extremely exciting fighter. He will soon be worth a billion dollars. He will someday probabley double that with his promotional company. He has a beautiful wife and his life is set. He will have had no ill affects from boxing it seems either.
He may not be my favorite fighter, but if I had to choose to be in one fighters shoes, it would be his, at the age of 34 and already worthmore than half a billion dollars, with a family and an amazing career.
I know, but it was funny.Hey, the question was, who would I want to be. Wouldnt you want to be someone who looked handsome while kicking someones ass lol.
:laugh:If pressed I would say Mike Tyson up to the point he got that girl to come to his room, if it had been me I would have told her straight out on the phone ( hey baby feel like getting a little freakie tonight or what) that way had she accepted it would have been all good, and if not I would've pull out the porn and moved on....ZZZZZZZZZ...ZZZZZ :laugh:
Yeah Tyson is close to dead last on my list.I wouldnt want to have tysons life, his child hood sucked, he was taken in by a stranger at 15, was convicted of rape, was in jail, has a bad reputation, broke now. Horrible life if you ask me.
Whats the heavyweight title mean if you were unhappy during the entire time.
That is a damn good choice. As of right now I think I'd chose to be Wladimir Klitschko. He's loaded, educated, and seems to be a class act.I'd choose someone close to my size. I wouldnt feel very good being smaller or too big. Also, not someone with a conturbed life.
Mikkel Kessler seems like a good choice.
I'm not sure if I'd like to be that big, but yeah hes a good choice. He grew up in a good ewalthy family and he makes a lot of money and good acts.That is a damn good choice. As of right now I think I'd chose to be Wladimir Klitschko. He's loaded, educated, and seems to be a class act.
