Then, turn the page to discover what a showdown between the two superstars would look like. Written in engaging, sportscaster-style prose, each battle is sure to get your heart pounding.

But pay attention: you decide the winner! Experts share their winners at the back so that you can check your answers to find out if and why you’re right…or wrong.
