It reminded me of when I served in the #Army way back when. Every company had a set of boxing gloves, I think they were 18 oz. Whenever we went to the field, we always took the gloves and enough rope to make a boxing ring. If we were in the field for more than a week, we always took a break and set up the boxing ring. Anyone who had a beef to settle could fight it out in the ring – regardless of rank. I once fought another company commander. If no one had a beef, then we would take volunteers. Usually the combatants ended up friends afterwards. At least they agreed to disagree.
We could settle most of the world’s problems if the opposing leaders would fight it out in the boxing ring. Below are some possible matchups. I am sure you have some suggestions so, please let’s hear them.
Barack #Obama, President, verses John #Boehner, Speaker of the House. Boehner may be the heavier fighter but I think Obama has the reach. The President has the reach of the Executive Branch (NSA, CIA, IRS, etc.). Boehner has the weight of the majority of the House. He also has good footwork as demonstrated how he danced around the #Tea Party.
I could also go for a Vladimir #Putin, Russian President, verses Obama fight.
Earvin “Magic” #Johnson, retired basketball player verses Donald #Sterling, owner of the #Clippers. Sterling’s fighting name should be “The lip.” Magic’s name would just be “Magic.”
#Alec Baldwin, actor, verses NYPD, the paparazzi, or any gay rights activists.
Please add your own fantasy-boxing match up.
