If there was a tournament between all the actors who did boxing movies,who do you think would win??Go for P4P best..
I think the "championship" fight would be Will Smith(Ali) and Daniel Day Lewis(The Boxer)..I really don't know who would win between the two of them..They both would of been great boxers..William Dafoe was decent in Triumph of the Spirit but nowhere near as good as Lewis and Smith..He did have Teddy Atlas training him though but Dafoe wasn't as confident about his skills as Lewis and Smith..Stallone is power and not much skill at boxing(he is southpaw though)..Undisputed 1 with Wesley Snipes and Ving Rhames was good too..Wesley has maddd skills too and is up there with Lewis and Smith..Ving was slow but would be droppin mad bombs..There are a few movies to work with off the start since I don't feel like naming em all..

You must forget all the classic boxing movies.

Gladiator
Streets of Gold
Hard Times

So many more I just cannot remember right now.

Anyway I would take Chaney to whoop that ass. You can't fuck with a prime Bronson.

The dude from Tyson was a bad MOFO the way he beat up on Givens was great.

The best fighter in a movie was either Morrison from Rocky V or Tarter from Rocky VI as they are actual world champs.

I mean the best actors that did boxing movies like the guys I named..Tarver and Morrison are boxers even though they were in movies..Cinderella Man was another good boxing movie..Of all the boxing movies I've seen,I think Will Smith or Daniel Day Lewis would of made the best boxers in real life..I really wonder who'd win the fight if those two fought each other on some kind celebrity boxing show..They need to do a celebrity boxing all on actors who boxed in movies..Then we'd get to see what's really up..

Snipes was good in Streets of Gold and Undisputed, although Streets was a better movie.

Carl Weathers hands down!

Dude looked like a mix of Ali, Roy Jones, and Sugar Ray Leonard...

The Master of Disaster, The King of Sting, The Dancing Destroyer, The Count of Monte Fisto...Apollo Creed!! thumbsup_anim.gif

I agree. Wesley did work with Manny Steward and Lennox Lewis for that movie.

HAHAHA..He was really impressive..That guy is a great actor..I did forget Robert Deniro..Robert was really good but I don't think he's better than Will Smith or Daniel Day Lewis..Will was sooo fast..The KO of Foreman in the movie looked soo much like the actual KO..He obviously did a lot of boxing training..

Co-sign on CW as Apollo Creed.......Woody Harelson and Antonio Banderas were pretty good in Play It To The Bone too.
