Shaquille O’Neal wants to box Jason Whitlock

Jason Whitlock became a brief topic of conversation on Tuesday night's Inside the NBA when a tweet of his was read regarding the physical fitness of Charles Barkley and Shaquille O'Neal.  I know, Jason Whitlock commenting on anyone's "shirt-off" is probably the most laughable thing you'll hear all day, but stick with me, here.

Shaq then challenged Jason Whitlock to a boxing match going into break, which I think any and everyone involved in sports would love to see happen.  A Whitlock-Shaq fight would be much, much more entertaining than Shaq's boxing match with Shane Mosley.  And, as a bonus, Jason Whitlock would get his face mashed in by a seven footer!  I'm all for it.  Not enough of these media disputes are settled with good old-fashioned fisticuffs.

Seriously, just picture Jason Whitlock trying to move around a boxing ring.  Sounds like fun, right?  I mean, who wouldn't want to see this physical specimen in action?
