The bout was to be protrayed as a boxer vs. a wrestler, but the rules were not
disclosed until both 'actors' entered the ring.

The buying public had no knowledge of what the rules were.

A consultant to this fiasco, Vince McMahon who was an advisor for Bob Arum.

Thank God Bruce Lee wasn't alive, otherwise they would have had a bout between
him and Muhammad Ali.

And the public, would have bought it.

Wasn't it Ali who boxed a kangaroo?
