Mr. Slice

Mr. Slice

Excerpt:

LS: Tell me about this possible matchup with Kimbo Slice.
BG: Okay, here’s how it would go down, Lorne. It ain’t going to be a street fight like you see on YouTube. It would be under the London Prize Fight Rules, or the rules of John L. Sullivan, before the gloves came. When the gloves came, they were the Queensberry Rules. This will be an old-time, proper fight with a referee and judges.

———————————————–

Any of me olde Boxing Banter bandies may recall I proposed bringing back select prize fights under the old LPRR(London Prize Ring Rules) rules to compete with the MMA and attract a new participant and viewer.

Still think it’s an excellent idea.

Mr. Gunn

Mr. Gunn

BTW, I’m picking Gunn which is why the fight probably won’t be made. Everyone knows it. Probably Slice’s team would pick Gunn to put their money on.

I’d pick Gunn in the backyard as well, on the roof, on the dock, in the empty swimming pool.

Phone booth belongs to Kimbo.

If they could find the proper venue which they are sorting, the fight could be pretty big and make each some good money as the big promoters and other middlemen would be cut out. They’re talkin’ PPV also, which may not be realistic given how squirrelly the network honchos are, but it’s an idea who’s time has come IMO, except for one thing.

The Blood.

In a fight to the finish, it’s gonna be a bucketful in each corner, and moderns are squeamish about that. I know I prefer extreme cases to be stopped. Still………

Hmmmmmm, I can hear it now:

Gentlemen, please bring your fighter to the scratch line. The fight shall commence!
