David Ortiz vs. Kevin Gregg was far from a title bout on the field. But pit these two against each other in the ring and it’s a legit heavy weight match-up in the making.
Gregg is a strapping 6’6 230lbs, Big Papi 6’3 and a generous 230lbs.
No punches were landed during the batter vs. pitcher confrontation a week ago, but I suspect they could last tow-to-toe for several rounds in the ring anyway.
That got me thinking, in all fun of course, what would be a good feather weight bout?
How about Tony Campana vs. Mike Fontenot, each listed at 5’8, 165lbs, in a speed vs. speed battle?
Gregg, meanwhile, has made a good go of it since departing the Cubs–(5-6) 23 saves– following the 2009 season. He saved (37) games for Toronto in 2010 and has (15) with Baltimore at the break this season.
-Papi finished the first half at .304, 19 HR & 55 RBI.
-Fontenot is batting .227, 2 HR & 9 RBI with the Giants.
-Campana is hitting .263, 2 RBI & 10 stolen bases.
