Well, the title's fairly self-explanatory.

Put some - preferably irritating - celebrity in the ring with a boxer, and let them get on wih it.

Kind of Celebrity Deathmatch, but with live action and some rules.

       Check out your old Monty Python scripts. Sir Kenneth Clarke (famous historian) versus Jack Bodell (not very famous English heavyweight) in a contest for the Regis Chair of History at Oxford.   

       I'm in favour.

       I hate boxing but I'd watch this. Politician Boxing could be good as well. It might add a bit of zest to the normal name-calling: "Perhaps the honourable gentleman would care to settle this issue in the ring, if he thinks he's hard enough".

       I definitely saw a Bush vs. Gore physical fitness rating column, describing who ran how much each day, and what other activities they did. It was very funny; perhaps the less bloody-minded of the contestants could just have footraces?   

       I can't put this as a link because I don't remember where it was, but I think it was in the last two weeks of New York Times Op Ed pieces.

       How about Roseanne Barr vs. Susan Hawk (Survivor) in a match. I'd watch that!   

       If I was *really* bored...

       A breath of fresh air... I would pay to watch this.

       Whadya know? This half-baker has actually been fully baked..if you're not from the UK, you should be aware of a recent series of shows on BBC (of all places) called 'The Fight'; sure enough, they featured real boxing matches between d-list celebs who most of you have probably never heard of, with perhaps the exception of Tony Hadley from Spandau Ballet .

       Big Screech vs. Big Urkel
