Shaquille O'NealEver wonder how well Shaquille O'Neal would do swimming against Michael Phelps? How about in a tennis match against Serena Williams? Maybe not, but you can find out anyway on ABC's "Shaq Vs."

The outspoken center will take on Olympian and World Champion Michael Phelps in swimming; Ben Roethlisberger, Super Bowl-winning quarterback for the Pittsburgh Steelers, in football; reigning U.S. Open, Australian Open and Wimbledon Champion Serena Williams in tennis; championship fighter Oscar de la Hoya in boxing; two time NL MVP and St. Louis Cardinals first baseman Albert Pujols in baseball; and Olympic gold medalists Kerri Walsh and Misty May-Treanor in beach volleyball.

The series will closely follow Shaq and his athletic adversary throughout the rigorous training process and the pre-game hype, including press conferences and interviews, all leading up to the final competition. To level the playing field, O'Neal will negotiate a handicap with his opponent and train with a coach for one week leading up to each challenge.

"These athletes may be on top of their game, but I am up for the challenge," said O'Neal. "I plan to train hard and win, so look out."

The one-hour series will debut Tuesday, August 18 at 9 p.m. ET on the ABC Television Network.
