    last night, i was watching "destination truth" on the travel channel. the host, josh gates and his team were investigating a haunted prison on coiba island a few miles off of panama. out of the blue, he is briefly talking with roberto duran! apparently, duran briefly trained on said island and josh gates asked him if he had seen or heard anything.

    i know evander holyfield had a brief cameo as a prison inmate playing football in the movie "necessary roughness". "i don't feel too good. i think i swallowed a finger." any other examples?

    Wlad Klitschko was in pain and gain.
    I think Briggs was in one of the Jason Statham movies.
    Lewis and Wlad were in Oceans 11.

    There's been a few boxers on reality TV programmes in the UK. Holyfield, Khan, Eubank, Haye.

    The Eubank family had their own programme as well.

    Anthony Crolla appeared on The Chase (quiz show)

    Jim Watt appeared in Still Game (comedy show)

    Zou Shiming was in one of the Transformers movies.


    The product placements in that film were just atrocious. Not only was it a bad movie, the otherwise good action sequences were ruined by ad placements.


    I forgot just how bad the movie was.
