The people promoting this——well what’s the point. Someone’s gonna make a pile of money off a man who is quite probably ALREADY brain damaged. It’s equivalent to a legal dogfight, and a slick and very lucrative way to cash in on a man who in a just society would be under mental care.
This reminds me of this thing…there’s a movie producer called Uwe Boll, who is reputed for making really shitty movies. As his movies are usually video game movies, obviously, you hear about this guy if you’re into video games. Everyone is always insulting this guy and talking shit about his movies. Everyone.
So a magazine I used to read called Electronic Gaming Monthly had one guy in the book who was called Seanbaby. That guy’s job was to review shitty video games, movies, and overall make fun of everything that sucked in the industry, including Uwe Boll.
Uwe Boll is more than conscious of what people say about him though, and he has taken it upon himself to publicly insult gamers who don’t like his work. One time, he made an offer to the world; whoever wanted to could challenge Uwe to a fist fight. He asked that any challenger sent him some details; weight, height, combat proficiency, blabla. Uwe is apparently a former boxer.
So now we return to Seanbaby, who accepted the challenge, and told about it in EGM. He’s also a Muay Thai kickboxer. He sent his information and details to Uwe, who accepted the fight, but he eventually chickened out. I think…I never actually followed up on this, and looking this up now, I can’t find anything about this actual fight having taken place.
But all that just to say, nope, you can’t make this shit up.
