    Was thinking about this today for some random reason (I haven't been watching "Fight Club," I swear) and thought it might be a fun topic to while away the time whilst waiting on college basketball games to finish up.

    If you could watch any two people -- real, fictional, historical -- duke it out in a no-holds-barred death match (or just one with stipulations), who would it be and why?
    The only rule I'll throw out there is that you can't pit fictional characters against real people. So Mike Tyson circa 1987 vs. Joe Frazier circa 1975 is OK, but Ivan Drago vs. Muhammad Ali is not. Christopher Reeves' Superman vs. Bill Bixby's Incredible Hulk is acceptable, but The Incredible Hulk vs. Dr. Ruth is not.

    My topic, so I guess I'll go first and use the Tyson-Frazier fight I mentioned above.
    I think it'd be a hellacious, three-round slugfest with each guy trading bombs until one of them falls. Tyson, at that point, was at his peak. He could kill you with one punch. Frazier could take that punch and just keep coming. He was a wrecking machine. In the end, I see Tyson getting sloppy and the more polished, tested Frazier taking advantage of his mistakes to drop Tyson in the third.

    Richard Simmons vs. RuPaul: I think RuPaul's superior reach and masculinity advantage could challenge Simmons early. But Simmons' boundless energy and annoying patter would wear down RuPaul late. I'd give it to Simmons in 11.
