    Question

    About half a decade too late, but, if The Big Show and Floyd Mayweather had a real, non scripted free style fight, who do you think would win?

    These thread titles need to be a bit more specific imo.

    And Big Show. Boxing is even further from a real fight than scripted wrestling.

    Depends if Show could catch him in the first place surely. Anyway, Show's punches are weak, seen various guys kick out of them over the years.

    I imagine it would just involve Mayweather failing to defend a takedown with nothing but bare-fisted strikes and then spending the rest of the fight lying on his back with Big Show on top of him wishing he was dead.

    It's pretty obvious how this would go down.

    Show would be cocky and go for the big boot to Mayweather's head. Mayweather would be too quick and sidestep the kick and land a punch in Big Show's tennis ball sized jewels.

    Show would go down and Mayweather would hit him with a steel chair until Show died.

    Even by Queens' rules, Floyd would struggle getting inside Show's reach, even a slow jab would keep floyd at bay...

    On one of Shaq's shows he boxed Oscar De La Hoya and if they were going at it serious and had no head gear then Im sure that if he didnt gas then he would easily win. Small guys just dont have the power with 16oz (or whatever) gloves to hurt guys 300+lbs.

    Now if it is wrestling or no-hold-barred or MMA then Im sure Big Show would win easily as long as he could do it in the first 5 mins. After that then Im sure he would just run out of steam.
    If I only just posted the above post, please wait 5 mins before replying as there is bound to be edits

    Came here just to post about this. DLH won but I almost got the impression Shaq was going easy on him (could be mistaken though).

    It was interesting, DLH, who was a power puncher and fought from 130-160lbs (probably not real powerful for a 160lber, but certainly up to 147) couldn't hurt Shaq with any of his punches. Shaq seemed to want to box him rather than throwing wild haymakers, but I felt like if he really unleashed he couldn't miss, as he had such a reach advantage and could just walk through DLH's punches. I think Shaq realized if he threw said haymaker he might do some real damage and decided against it.
