  • It's between Bruce and Muhammad for me. Both are legendary in their form of fighting. Bruce is probably faster but their styles are actually correspond a bit. Both of them sort of wait for a opening before hitting. The thing is while Bruce is incredibly fit to the point of near superhuman levels, Bruce doesn't have much to say when it comes to professional fighting. There's really not much proof of how well he'd preform in an actual fight, you can only make an estimate based on his mastery for Wing Chun and Jeet Kune Do and demonstrations of physical strength. Ali on the other hand. He all know he was an amazing boxer. One of the most skilled of all time. 56 wins 37 by knock out and only 5 losses. Both have incredible speed. Bruce being too fast for a 24fps movie so they had to film in 32fps. Ali being able to throw over 11 punches in under 1 second and I'm sure he could throw more than that if that was his goal. Now I'd believe Bruce is faster than Ali but how much faster is the question. Personally, I dont think he's going to be dramatically faster, especially is the venue is boxing. If Ali had to use boxing against Bruce's Jeet Kune Do, it could really go both ways. Bruce isn't a powerful fighter, he's a skillful one and in reality, there's no proof to show if he could beat a man who stood 6'3 at 210lbs. Bruce was only 5'7 at 145lbs, so he's a lot smaller. But Bruce has the advantage of using his legs, something a boxer wouldn't use so that could secure a victory for Bruce. But if Bruce wasn't able to take advantage of that, I'd say Ali would win. When it boils down to it, Bruce just wouldn't be strong enough to take down Ali. Bruce is strong but definitely not HW Boxing strong. There is also an account of Bruce claiming that Ali would kill him if they fought, however it wasn't said in an interview it's just a quote so who knows if he actually said that. To me in their primes however, I'm still giving it to Ali

    • Damn that's an argument if I've ever seen one.

    • Show All
    • Oh yeah of course. Even the actors who do the super hero movies get trained in martial arts and could probably beat up the average person. I'm not trying to belittle Jackie, I just think everyone else listed in their prime would be able to beat him in his prime

    • True. Also I think it's hard to pinpoint Jackie's actual prime. He's such an entertainer that it's hard to tell were his skill level is.

  • Fight or a sporting event? Because in a fight, Lee Siu-lung would have broken the noses and gouged the eyes of everyone else before they even raised their fists lol... You don't need Tyson or Ali's power to injure someone, you just need *enough*.

    If everyone had gloves though (aka no seriously damaging blows intended) the boxers would win easily.

  • I remember reading an article where Jackie Chan was asked how he would get on against Mike Tyson. His answer was that if Tyson hit him it would probably kill him, but he thought he would be fast enough to avoid getting hit. So he was under no illusion about who would win should they stand there and trade, because to even suggest that he could have stood with a prime Mike Tyson would have been ludicrous.

    In reality, some of those guys could employ speed perhaps and perhaps some reasonable kicks. Kicks can work, as the UFC has proven. If the distance was closed however, none of them could stand up to Ali for long, nor could they avoid everything he threw all day long. Realistically they would have no more than that 1 in 100 chance of landing some devastating kick to the jaw, which still may not be enough. Other than that they're all fucked.
