Eating champion Joey Chestnut ate 54 hot dogs on the fourth of July to clinch yet another mustard belt, winning won four contests in a row.

When a boxer is finished with a match, he has to wait a few months before he can compete again to let his body heal. One would think professional eaters such as Chestnut would take the same approach.

Shaq has challenged Chestnut to a hot dog eating contest that will air on his show Shaq Vs., and footage of the match has been leaked.

Watch how Shaq fared on TheSportingRave.com.

You’d think the number one eater in the world would take it easy during a friendly competition, but if you put the clips of the one below and the one on July 4 side by side, I don’t think I could tell the difference.
