The most anticipated fight of the year and possibly the decade will take place on Saturday night between Floyd Mayweather, Jr and Manny Pacquiao at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. It is a fight fans have been waiting years to see, and the prices for tickets and pay per view are eye-watering to say the least. With the big day just around the corner it got us all sentimental about some of the most-hyped bouts of days gone by. Not all of these big name fights managed to live up to their promise however, so we got to thinking about who we would actually really pay big bucks to see don the gloves, step into the ring and settle their differences if we had the choice. Here are ten of the best fictional fights we would love to see.
Giselle Bündchen vs. Kate Upton
They’re two of the highest earning supermodels in the business, but who would really win once the claws come out? Giselle has got experience on her side, but Kate has the exuberance of youth and probably packs more of a punch.
Ryan Gosling vs. Channing Tatum
The battle of the pretty boys! Just how much are they really willing to put on the line for your heart ladies? Throw them in the ring and lets see who’s willing to risk a black eye for your love.
George Lucas vs. J.J Abrams
With the brand new Star Wars film literally just months away, and the trailer now out the fan forums and debate circles are in full force as to which series of films is going to be better. Lucas lost a lot of fans with Episodes 1-3. How could he regain the love of the Star Wars faithful? A good ol’ boxing glove-lightsaber battle with J.J would help.
Kim Kardashian vs. Nicki Minaj
These two have gained fame for a certain body part, but which one would go on to be crowned the one true booty queen?
Homer Simpson vs. Pete Griffin
Another debate which seems like it will never end. The Simpsons or Family Guy, Family Guy or The Simpsons? Thank god they finally got a chance to “settle their differences” in The Simpsons Guy. Anyone else feel like this one needs a rematch though?
Charlie Sheen vs. Ashton Kutcher
It was always going to be hard for Kutscher to fill Sheen’s boots in Two and a Half Men and the rivalry as to who is the coolest is still open. Kutcher recently told Sheen to “Shut the f**k up“ on live TV. It is time for these two to get in the ring.
Britney Spears vs. Christina Aguilera
If you grew up in the late 90’s and early 00’s then you will know this one only too well. You either loved Britney OR Christina. We’d like to see them slip back into the *cough* lovely fashion of the time and settle this one for good.
Frank Underwood vs. Don Draper
They are currently two of the coolest characters in TV at the moment. One is a political mastermind who will stop at nothing to get what he wants. The other is an advertising mastermind who will stop at nothing to get what he wants. Who wins the battle of the suits?
Arsene Wenger vs. Jose Mourinho
There is no love lost between these two, and with Fergie long gone they only have each other to argue with. Let’s end the nit picking, the pushing and verbal abuse with a traditional game of fisticuffs.
