This should be a fun fight to do and I’d like to do more of these so here I go. Also, I’m going to ask that my old fight theories get taken away if allowed and I’m using this new format.
Strength: Miguel. Daniel doesn’t really have that much strength yet. Most of his training was in skill and he mostly built strength in the second movie, most likely in the six months of training before. So I’ll give this point to Miguel.
Speed: Daniel. He has extraordinary reflexes as he caught a fly with chopsticks and he was able to keep up and score on very fast opponents like Johnny, Dutch, and Tommy.
Skill: I’m going to split this. Miguel seems more skilled in a street fight as he has excellent combos and grappling while Daniel is definitely more skilled in tournaments given he beat Johnny while injured.
Durability: Again, I’m splitting this. Daniel was shown not as durable in KK2 because Dutch knocked him down for a while but still extremely durable given his broken leg was constantly attacked and he was getting up right after. Miguel is also super durable given he took big hits from Robby and still managed to gain the upper hand.
Intelligence: Daniel. He won the tournament because he played it smart and I think, while definitely creative and intelligent, Miguel would be too aggressive and Daniel would take advantage of that.
As the score entails, I think it would be a good fight because of the fact that Daniel has intelligence and durability. I think in a street fight Miguel would definitely have the advantage given his experience levels by now and his style but Daniel would just last a while because of his great defense and intelligence.
So in a street fight it would mostly be Daniel defending Miguel’s attacks and throwing a move or two of his own but Miguel’s durable so that’s fine.
In a tournament I think Daniel’s easily wins 3-0. I can’t see a world where the very skilled, very fast Johnny Lawrence loses to Miguel in a tournament. Since injured Daniel>Johnny Fighting dirty, Daniel>Miguel.
