King of the streets isn't backyard. It's in abandoned warehouseI don't mind that Street Beefs backyard org, but I like Rough and Rowdy just because of what a good-natured shitshow it is.
Also had the single greatest post-fight interview in boxing history.
Interviewer ringside with jacked roidhead who just lost a decision after his gas tank fell off a cliff one minute into a three-minute fight:
Roidhead Redneck Fighter: "My cardio fell off. I got tired man, it's hard throwing so many punches in bunches."
Ringside Interviewer: "Do you feel like the steroids hurt you when it came to your cardio?"
Roidhead Redneck Fighter (deadpan): "I do not, because I am completely drug-free."
Offscreen Commentator: "That's a lie."
Ringside Interviewer (laughs) "That ain't true, brother."
Shit like that cracks me up. I just enjoy the vibe of Rough and Rowdy - everyone's having a good time, and I love the ring card girls that they grab from the nearest low-budget strip club, all trying to out-whore each other. And every card, they throw one 300 pound whale in a bikini in there and the crowd goes wild cheering for her, and that's funny. Love the vignettes where the rednecks talk themselves up to hype their fight, too.
I mean, any promotion where the rounds last anywhere from 40 seconds to 90 seconds depending on how good the action is, how can you hate on that? Let alone that if there's a good, competitive fight that the crowd is into, but the fighters are gassed and the action is slowing...... sometimes they play the Conan the Barbarian soundtrack over the arena loudspeakers as the fight is going on, to motivate the fighters to greater effort. I love that shit.
