Canadian politicians fight in boxing match for charity
Don't you wish more politicians could resolve their differences this way?
In the red corner, weighing in at 180 pounds...Liberal Minister of Parliament for Papineau and the pretty boy son of revered former Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau...Justin Trudeau!
And in the blue corner, at 183 pounds, Conservative Senator and aboriginal activist...Patrick Brazeau!
Two federal Canadian politicians in a knock-down, drag out fight to the finish to raise money for cancer research! Who will come out on top??
I saw this live on TV over the weekend and couldn't believe what I was seeing. Everyone thought Trudeau was going to get his ass kicked. But whodathunkit...the lithe pretty boy won. I'm sure they'll try to make him Liberal leader now.

Here's a clip of Trudeau's victory by TKO in the third round:
VIDEO-CLick to Watch!:
This whole story was hilarious. They even did a weigh-in and everything. It was all very Rocky.

Re: Canadian politicians fight in boxing match for charity
I originally thought Brazeau was going to win, but then last Friday I read how poor his general physical conditioning was going in. Endurance > Strength.
