Michael Jordan is out, Chuck Norris took down Rocky and Conan The Barbarian moves on for a slugfest against James Bond. We've moved into the third round of Cigar Aficionado’s 25th Anniversary Cover Challenge and only 16 elite covers remain.
The last matchup saw some close contests. Robert De Niro won a close battle against Danny DeVito; three-time cover star Arnold Schwarzenegger beat Catherine Zeta-Jones by a handful of votes; and Chuck Norris made it by Sylvester Stallone by a slim six votes.
This round features tough matchups. Arnold Schwarzenegger goes up against Pierce Brosnan; The Fuente family takes on Demi Moore; The Sopranos are paired against John Travolta; Fidel Castro takes on Chuck Norris, Jeff Bridges faces down JFK; Tom Selleck goes up against Robert De Niro; Jack Nicholson faces off against Damian Lewis; and George Burns takes on Sir Winston Churchill in a battle of cigar-smoking legends.
Every time you vote, you get a chance to win a box of vintage cigars plucked from the personal humidor of Marvin R. Shanken, editor and publisher of Cigar Aficionado magazine.
