We’ve been waiting for this fight longer than Mayweather vs. Pacquiao…
It was one of the greatest scandals in Olympic history and now Tonya Harding and Nancy Kerrigan are being offered big bucks to settle their grudge — not on the ice, but in the ring!
It has been almost 20 years since Harding’s ex-husband and bodyguard hired a man to attack skating rival Kerrigan, smashing her leg with a baton in an attempt to prevent her skating in the 1994 Olympics.
The attack failed to cause long-term damage and Kerrigan went on to win an Olympic silver medal, while Harding was charged with covering up the assault.
Now one of the United Kingdom’s richest men is offering both ladies $100,000 each to duke out their differences in the ring.
Digital media entrepreneur, FilmOn’s Alki David, has announced he wants the women to face off November 5 in three one-minute rounds.
Only problem is Kerrigan has yet to agree to the fight, so David has made a public appeal for the skater to join in the fight offering to give the money to charity if she would prefer.
“David is giving Kerrigan the chance to return to stardom in a fun three one-minute round match as part of his great celebrity fight night card,” David’s announcement said.
However, Kerrigan may be a little bit apprehensive about facing off against her skating nemesis — not just because of their past — but because Harding has had a short-lived professional boxing career.
We think Nancy Kerrigan should take this fight. After all, it’s boxing not MMA, as long as Tonya can’t attack that knee we think Nancy has a shot! LOL!
Wouldn’t you like to see Nancy get her “Big Payback” on after all these years??
