Hollywood beauty Hilary Swank's physical prowess leaves her KARATE KID predecessor Ralph Macchio trailing far behind.

Macchio was replaced by Swank in 1994 sequel THE NEXT KARATE KID and is convinced the MILLION DOLLAR BABY OSCAR-winner could floor him with a single punch.

The 43-year-old says, "She can kick my butt. She's an athlete, she has strength, serious fighting skills.

"I'd go down with her first punch."
