Hall of Fame haymakers were about to be thrown when Charles Barkley and Shaquille O'Neal got into it on TNT Tuesday night.

It's unclear what got them going, but Shaq was dissing Barkley because he only played in one NBA Finals and Barkley was saying Shaq only won four rings because he rode Kobe and D-Wade's coattails.

Then Shaq threatened to punch Barkley in the face and Barkley offered to a throw a chicken wing at Shaq's "fat ass."

Earlier Tuesday, Shaq told Bull & Fox that he's not joking when he says Barkley's opinion about the Finals doesn't matter because he only played in one.

"When I’m talking about certain things, especially at this point of basketball, I know what I'm talking about," Shaq said. "It's hard to listen to a guy that's never won. it’s hard to listen to Chuck because he’s never won. He has great knowledge of the game and definitely a Hall of Famer, but you can only know from being there."

Maybe that's was got Barkley fired up.
