Azog vs Bolg

Who would win? The slower but powerful father or the quicker but cunning son? i have no idea on this. personally i believe they are equally matched

I believe that Azog and Bolg are possibly the only two orcs who may be an exception to the typical evil nature of an orc. Azog had brought up his son, well enough that he actually acknowledges him as his own son. That is a first for any orc. And Bolg sets out to march upon Erebor in vengeance of his fathers death. How many orcs will Try and avenge another dead orc? Most will just forget about the dead one. This gives me hope that Orcs, have some traits of good in them, even if it is small aspects.

I'll go with King Log.

Or, more specifically, King Oaken Log.

A fox passing through the wood on business of his own stopped several minutes and sniffed. "A chicken crossing the road!" he thought. "Well, what next? I have heard of strange doings in this land, but I have seldom heard of a chicken crossing the road! There's something mighty queer behind this." He was quite right, but he never found out any more because he ate it.

What a battle that would be!

I'd give the more experienced Azog a slight edge, though.

Azog strikes me as more of a general/leader than fighter, whereas Bolg's role is more of a battlefield commander/combatant - and he's not afraid to get his hands dirty.
