    The matchup have been announced.

    Darva Conger vs. Olga Korbut

    John Wayne Bobbitt vs. Joey Buttafuoco

    William "The Refrigerator" Perry vs. Manute Bol.

    "Celebrity Boxing 2" will air on FOX at 8 p.m. on May 22.

    I didn't watch the first one, but I am curious to see the Perry-Bol match for the shear lunacy.

    Darva Conger sure is stretching her 15 minutes of fame to the limits (I will be pissed if Matt Lauer interviews her again after what he said the last time). Maybe she should co-star in the next JWB porno.

    I'll assume this is a joke (the fight card, not that you don't know who she is). Olga Korbut won gold medals in gymnastics in '72 and '76. She's 47 years old. She's probably under 5 feet tall also.
    Now if she went against Manute Bol, well I'm there [​IMG]

    TV Guide is saying the same thing, except instead of The Fridge vs. Manute, it's going to be Horshack vs. Screech.

    Bobbitt got busted for beating up his current wife. He broke her tailbone and a finger. I hope she cuts his dick off!

    Is the Chyna story for real?

    She could kick just about anybody's @$$. She's a professional wrestler for God's sake! Not to mention, thighs the size of most people's waist.

    Manute Bol was "rumored" to have killed a lion in his youth.

    Any TV with Manute Bol on it is worth watching. He's a genuinely cool cat. Chris Mullin (formerly teammate or M. Bol at Golden State) once said something to the effect that if the world were full of Manute Bols, it would be a better place.

    As silly as the prospect of a Munute Bol fight might seem, his heart is in the right place. My understanding is that he has spent almost all he made in the NBA on relief efforts in his native Sudan. Further, he has pledged all of his earnings from this fight to further relief efforts. The guy has really put his money where his mouth is on charitable giving.

    I saw just a part of a story on Bol on HBO real sports last night; I didn't hear all the detials but the jist of it is that he's lost all his money and is living as a refugee in the US.

    I don't think this is a 15 minutes of fame thing, he needs the money.

    Olga Korbut was the Russian Gymnastic Olympic darling of the 72 Munich games. I have heard she has fallen on some pretty hard times lately. I believe she was recently picked up for shop lifting.
