    Default two people fight

    A and B are fighting with each other. :( Suppose A are taller or stronger, so B suffers more injuries. My question is, how to describe this situation? Can I say,

    B cannot rival A when it comes to fighting.
    B is no rival of A in fighting.
    A beats B up.

    What is a native-speaker most likely to say about this situation? Thanks.

    A would eat B alive / would wipe the floor with him / would crush him / would beat the sh*t out of him ...
