If you have not seen the movie Diggstown, do yourself a favor. Stop reading and go rent it. Now!
Diggstown features Honey Roy Palmer, the all time greatest fictional boxer. At age 48, he defeated 10 fighters in a 24-hour span. Naturally, some of the matches were fixed in his favor—this is boxing we're talking about here.
On the other hand, the only boxer who beat Palmer in his professional career, Hammerhead Hagan, was brought in as ringer for the opposition.
Two hypothetical questions can be logically derived from Honey Roy Palmer occupying the top slot. First, because in Diggstown he beat 10 fighters in one day, could he conquer the rest of the fictional boxers of this list in the same amount of time?
The answer is definitely no. Palmer probably couldn't handle the super human strength of Balrog. He would not be able to keep up with the lightning speed of Little Mac. Moreover, Palmer cannot compete with the heart of any of the Rockys, even the latest HGH infused geriatric version.
Why does Honey Roy deserve the paramount position in the fantasy fighter rankings?
1. Louis Gossett, Jr. played professional basketball for the New York Knicks before moving to Hollywood and becoming an Oscar winner. Sylvester Stallone was in soft core porn.
2. Louis Gossett, Jr. has shown he has what it takes to win in the ring on the silver screen. Not only did he overcome many obstacles, some mentioned above, to be victorious in Diggstown, but also in An Officer and a Gentleman Gossett, Jr. kicked Richard Gere so hard in the groin that the infamous hamster in his anus died.
3. Heather Graham. She plays the lead female role in Diggstown. Rollergirl is just as traffic-stopping beautiful as she was 21 years ago in License to Drive.
4. It simply comes down to a matter of opinion and this is my article. Deal with it. Haters please express your disdain below.
