    Whether it's sports, combat, intellectual debate, etc., in many facets of life and competition, there often seems to be competitors or compatriots whom you'd love to see 'face-off' so to speak, but frustratingly never do. You want to see how their skills would match-up, but it seems it was or is just not destined.

    What examples most come to mind? Here's mine:

    Chuck Norris vs. Bruce Lee
    Michael Jordan vs. Lebron James (different eras, but you wonder what would've happened if they were contemporaries)
    Marciano vs. Mike Tyson

    I would have loved to see a prime Gerald McClellan vs a prime Roy Jones Jr. on a professional level. They met in the ammys. That's just small time business though

    Of course, prime Ali vs prime Tyson
    And from pop-culture, I guess, Yoda vs Vader or Imperator Palpatine. I can't remember, I think he fought against one of them

    How about PBF vs Margarito?

    Or how about Lennox vs Vitali for real?

    Or Donald Brashear vs George Parros

    Or Donald Brashear vs Milan Lucic

    One question I've had for a while - Did 'let me bang bro' actually get to bang in the end? Who was he looking to fight?
