Last night, Joe Calzaghe defeated Roy Jones Jr. in what was a fairly entertaining fight at Madison Square Garden. But that fight couldn't hold a candle to the one that happened Friday in Australia between boxers Ahmed Elomar and Willie Kickett.
Well, actually, the fight itself was nothing incredibly special (Elomar won by knockout) but it's what happened afterward that was.
It then erupted into a full-blown brawl, with chairs and water bottles hurled through the air.
Now that's the kind of fight I would drop $50 bones to watch.
Let me just say one thing here. We all know that 99.9% of boxers roll with huge posses that consist of, well, thugs. But I'd have to imagine that these Australian posses are slightly more dangerous. After all, we all know that Australians are impervious to pain and constantly drunk, which is quite the combination.
On the plus side though, at least the fans were treated to two fights, which is fairly decent compensation for getting drilled in the head by a beer bottle.
