    This isnt the 80's anymore... the talent level of boxers in the olympics has gone down drastically... If we are talking about him vs. pure amature boxers it is really hard to say how good he would do. I could easily see him wining it or losing on points, depending on what kind of talent was in there.

    As far as TKD goes, I would have to get to know the rules better...

    He has high level boxing, elite Muay thai... As well as some training in TKD, Karate, and other Martial arts...

    If it is anything close to a standup battle we know from MT or Kickboxing, then he would destroy any and all of them, so long as he took it somewhat seriously.

    good boxing+muay thai>TDK any day of the week.... not to mention all the other arts he is versed in.

    I watched about an hours worth of TKD for the London Olympics. Really didn't dig it to much. I think he would do better in tkd then in boxing.

    he's 37 now right? so 41 when the olympics come around again? I have doubts.

    Damn it would have been awesome for MMA if he got the gold in Boxing! I think Bob Arum's head would actually explode......

    Didn't he have a (short) pro boxing career? How can he compete in amateur boxing in the Olympics?

    Edit: Yup, looks like some other people pointed out he went 1-1 as a pro....

    He cant compete in the Olympics for Boxing, He has a professional record... unless there is some loophole.

    but

    that doesnt make any fucking sense because for Basketball, its full of professionals from the NBA and I dont see any difference here, its still competition and taken just as seriously.

    I'd be much much more interested in him doing tkd, that would be amazing.
