I remembered there was an old thread on this, but I couldn't find it, so heres a new one. Mostly it's just some speculation I've got regarding the fighting styles of the various blackbeard pirates, and how the match-ups might work. Oh, and please forgive me if I can't remember all the names off the top of my head.
Luffy VS Blackbeard: Don't know his fighting style from adam, at this point, but blackbeard may have an as of yet unrevealed DF power. I hope not though, personally I'd like it if he whipped out some kind of weapon that could damage luffy (or knows some kind of martial art.)
Van Auger VS. Usopp: I think this will be the first battle, and that the two will never come within five hundred feet of each other. I picture various specialty projectiles whizzing through the air over some town.
Wrestler Dude: Not, at this point, certain who he will fight. As the first mate Zoro seems the logical choice, but as a grappling specialist Sanji springs to mind as well. However I say he fights Zoro, and puts up a bretty good fight, because another matchup I'm predicting is
Sanji VS. Creepy Messenger Dude: His elongated limbs and carnival clown acrobatic actions make him look like a good nad to hand fighter all on his own; a perfect opponent for sanji.
Finally, Dr. Death VS Chopper: I predict Dr. Death will deal heavil in pills, for both himself and his horse. Their intense physical weakness will turn out to bne a strength in disguise or, and this is my favorite theory, he's weak because he tested earlier, failed versions of his power enhancers on himself.
The problem, of course, is that we've only met those five blackbeard pirates. maybe the rest of the crew will be indisposed, or maybe Blackbeard has other crewmembers we've not yet met.
