Michael Bay Accepts Uwe Boll's Boxing Challenge
Posted by JPX
Not too long ago, director Uwe Boll (BloodRayne) made a few statement about Michael Bay (Transformers), stating: "I am not a f*cking retard like Michael Bay or other people running around in that business." Bay responded by calling Boll "a sad being."
Soon after, Boll released a video in which he explained that his feelings have been hurt and that he has decided to challenge Bay to a boxing match. This isn't the first time Boll did something like this. He previously challenged five critics to boxing, beating all of them with ease. Videos of the fights will appear on the "Postal" DVD.
Now, Boll has released yet another video, confirming that Bay has accepted his challenge and that the two would meet in the ring on October 30th (or maybe September 30th, like Boll states) at the Mandalay Bay Resort in Las Vegas. [view video below]
An administrator on Bay's official site had the chance to speak to Bay, who denied accepting Boll's challenge and claimed that he has never even spoken with Boll in the first place.
This all seems like a ridiculous publicity stunt, which Boll figured would get people to see his "Postal" movie in theaters on May 23rd. Or maybe he figured that he would trick people into buying tickets to "Postal" if they thought that those tickets would get them to see the boxing match. This is a new low.
