If there’s one thing Shannon Briggs could always do is take a punch. Dudes got a cement head

Or he might now. Either way I will be highly entertained and Iron Mike gets a big pay day and that is really what it is all about.

Bare knuckle is less brutal than light gloves. They just protect hands, fighter can throw much harder head shots with gloves. If a fighter throws hard to the head he'll break bones in his hands. Should be a lot of body blows and broken ribs though.

I don’t think Mike could be heavy weight champ again but from what I saw of the recent video of him working out he could absolutely make a killing from beating up tomato cans. Surprised he hasn’t done that actually. I’d pay to see him knock some journeyman out.

I agree. With the power and speed shown there endurance won't be as big as factor as one may think. Obviously as you said, this doesn't apply to the top ranked guys.

Of course he couldn't. Times change. Ali would be brutalized in today's game. It is impossible to compare eras.
