    It has to be armmegeddon. I only saw the Tonya bout for a laugh, but it was pretty sad to see Paula Jones run for her life, what a joke the Sport of Boxing has become. When's Opening Day?

    Dave: The Todd Bridges/Vanilla Ice bout was pretty good, but the Brady/Patridge bout was even sadder than the Paula/Tonya one.
    Who says there isn't anything good on TV anymore?[​IMG]

    Does anybody know if the Mike Tyson vs. Lennox Lewis fight is still on. Now that is something we would all pay to see.

    Danny ______________- (don't know his last name) won i nthe 2nd round after knocking out Barry Williams. Rob -Van Winnkle AKA Vinnila Ice got his ass whiped by Todd Bridges by a unnanimus decision and Toyna Harding beat up Paula Jones even though she quit. In the Middle of the third round, Paula said that she quit , and then Toyna gave her a sucker punch between the ears.

    Just to let you know, the fights and or outcomes were not predetermined, as this is boxing not the WWF

    I thought it was rather funny. Paula went into it so cheerful and smiling, and Tanya just pummeled her. By the end, the look of horror and fear on Paula's face is the same look she probably had when Clinton confronted her in that hotel room.

    Best Fight - Bridges vs. Winkle

    Worst Fights - Bonaduce(?) vs. Williams, Jones vs. Harding

    All Paula Jones did was make like the knights in Monty Python & The Holy Grail...runaway. It was an interesting concept but the advertising on the boxers backs was kind of pushy.

    I LMAO thru the whole thing...great entertainment. I found it especially hillarious that Paula Jones has a "special helmet" to protect her gorgeous new face! GREAT COMEDY!

    Raymond, very well said. I don't follow boxing, but the idea that it's ruined because of last night's show or Tyson's behaviour is silly, and insulting to other professional boxers.

    I catch bouts on HBO every so often, and it's great competition.

    How can anyone even equate last night with real boxing? That's like saying football is ruined because of the XFL. I'd like to think we're all capable of delineating between professionals and amateurs.

    I laughed and laughed and laughed. I couldn't believe how old Greg Brady is. That really shocked me. The guy is almost 50. He looks older than Florence.
    I think Danny Bonaduce has some martial arts training, so that fight probably wasn't too fair.
    I loved Willis vs. Vanilla (Bi-Polar) Ice. Ice Ice Baby got in a good lick and probably thought he was turning the tables, then Willis put his prison background to work and backed him down. Hey, was that Tank Abbot in Ice's corner?
    Paula Jones, what were you thinking? Oh yeah, never mind. It was like she was carrying on a conversation with somebody in the audience. She kept turning her head and looking away.
    For the next bouts, how about:
    Gary Coleman v. Emmanual (Webster) Lewis
    Lynda (Wonder Woman) Carter v. Lyndsey (Bionic Woman) Wagner
    Urkel v. Kato Kaelin

    Stacy, I thought that might have been Tank but I think the commentators referred to him with another name.

    I'm pretty sure that was Tank.

    I for one loved this. Watching celebrities wail on eachother is the funniest thing ever.

    I want them to do another one, but I want them to keep it in the same style. Fox has a history of overdoing things to the point of it not being good anymore, so I hope they make this like an annual event or something instead of a seasonal show.
