  • Who’s the greatest “giant killer”?

    Thought I’d revive the age old debate - who’s most deserving of the “giant killer” title in their respective eras?

                I would add Momo Benaziza and Makkawy both great short bodybuilders.

                  Padilla was only 5'2. He is the first giant killer.

                    I voted for Lee Priest. But , based on who he defeated ,a good case can be made for Danny Padilla.
                    The real problem with this debate is NONE of the men listed, were able to slay the giant of their era in the big contest.

                    Gaspari won the Arnold but always lost to Haney in the Olympia. Plus, Gaspari was around 5'8", so he's a decent ht for a pro BB.
                    Shaun Clarida won't get much love in this thread, but he's the only 212 pro in the modern era with an open pro win.

                        Lee Priest is my favorite bodybuilder on that list and he faced the most competitive era in history, maybe not the fairest choice, just my subjective opinion.

                          Padilla for me.

                          I think Padilla had a nicer structure than Lee Priest. Lee obviously had the 3-D freaky muscle.

                          I always thought the ratio of Lee's legs to his torso was a little off and his short legs had a bit of that dwarfish look.

                          Danny Padilla might have been short but he was in proportion with long limbs for his height.

                          Padilla also placed higher in the Olympia and arguable could have won it.

                            Yes because 5'8 is a giant

                              If you are over 5'10 you are in the wrong sport
