Back in the mid-to-late eighties, the running gag was "Can you beat Mike Tyson?" So much so, Will "Fresh Prince" Smith was compelled to write a song about challenging the former boxing champ.
Fast forward about 30 years and we have a similar phenomenon with UFC 190 headliner Ronda Rousey, who inexplicably gets paired off against male athletes from other sports. Floyd Mayweather I can understand, due to size and fighting discipline.
But LeBron James?
Not long after "Rowdy" was paired off with another NBA legend in Charles Barkley (see that awkward video here), a dopey sports fan asked "King James" on Twitter if he would be able to handle himself against the ESPY award winner.
@DatDudeDHoov As long as she wanted me to last. I wanted to introduce myself to her at the ESPYs but didn't want her to kick my butt.— LeBron James (@KingJames) July 28, 2015
If the 6'8", 240-pound James can't beat Rousey, then what chance does Bethe Correia have?!?
