Hmmm, I guess I can’t argue with you if you’ve actually tried taking on 4 guys at once before in real life. However, you’re an experienced amateur boxer but you’re probably not like 6-5, 265lbs. Wouldn’t a well-trained fighter that huge be hard to drag down to the ground and be able to one-hit any of the average guys?[/quote]
You’re getting into that 27 ninjas with machine guns territory here.
“Well, he’s a pro fighter, but he’s also HUGEEEEE, and REALLY strong, and blah blah blah.”
Well yea, a big guy is harder to get down. A big guy who is a fighter is a dangerous guy, absolutely. But against more than one guy, his advantages get cut exponentially.
I once heard it explained like this - you get in a fight, you and the other dude are both going 100 percent at each other. Fairly even. You fight two guys, now you’ve got two guys going 100 percent at you, but all you’ve got is still that 100 percent to give. Three - same thing, now you got three guys with a total of three times as much strength, three times as much energy, and three times as many limbs coming at you.
A really good fighter can beat up on two guys if he hits first, hardest, and knows how to fight against a couple guys. Tyson did that as I recall to a couple guys in a casino a few years back. Even then he’s only one punch - literally, one hard punch - away from being stomped to death. Or one broken bone in your hand, or one knife, or whatever.
Arturo Gatti got in a fight in Miami or NJ, I don’t remember which, and got stabbed in the back. Ask Dicky Eklund how good fighting cops works, even if you’re a boxer. I mean, if you’re just talking strictly a hypothetical in the ring of a Paul Bunyan sized MMA fighter going against a bunch of guys, than maybe he’s got a better shot (but prob not).
In the street, all bets are off. If you got a dude that’s that big and he’s a fighter and I know that, I’m not going to even bother “fighting” him. I’m going to catch him at night when he’s walking to his car after leaving a bar, and I’m gonna hit him in the legs with a bat and then stomp his face in. Dude won’t even see it coming.
Basically, if you put a fighter - and I don’t give a fuck how big he is - against multiple opponents, if he doesn’t do what that boxer did and keep space and range, strike while moving, and not get cornered, he’s gonna get beat down.
