Clarke, the best gossiper in the business, wrote on Monday:
- Bobbitt, 41, is training for a Nov. 15 celebrity boxing match in Philadelphia against Greg Smith, the barber who made news in May when he knocked out rap mogul Marion "Suge" Knight during a street altercation in Hollywood.
Bobbitt was scheduled to fight Joey Buttafuoco in a televised celebrity match several years ago, but the event fell apart. Earlier this year, Bobbitt agreed to slug it out with former baseball star Jose Canseco, but the promoter switched to former NFL player and BYU standout Vai Sikahema, who pounded the beefier Canseco into carpaccio.
With the sad state of boxing, and with the emergence of mixed martial arts fighting, this may enter into the top five bouts of the year. In fact, for those who haven't followed boxing in years, this may be the only bout they watch this year.
Hope John Wayne Bobbitt has a good cut man in his corner.
