Every now and then, my cousin and I have debates over sports like most male friends. These range from a fantasy draft of all time athletes to could I win one fight out of 100 against Anderson Silva if I had a baseball bat.
Recently, we had an argument of the top athletes we would never want to fight. Luckily for me, my cousin sells steel and I write for Bleacher Report so my list is official and his isn’t.
Now the rules of the list are that the athlete can’t be a professional fighter and has to be active in a sport. We all know we would never want to fight Muhammad Ali or Deacon Jones.
Also, know this fight takes place in an open space and is weapon free.
The last bit of information is that by no means would I think I even stood a chance against any professional athlete. This list could easily go beyond 10 but this is my personal top 10.
Honorable Mention: Jose Cano. The look on his face when the Kansas City crowd was booing his son during the home run derby was moderately terrifying… OK, so I needed to sleep with the light on.
