Gym Humour: Vasyl Lomachenko Dresses For Success

In one of the best examples of gym humour I've seen recently, major Super Featherweight title holder Vasyl Lomachenko shows up as a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle. I spotted this on the Facebook channel "Only Full Fights" and had a laugh. Train seriously, dress less so.

BGB Quote Spotlight: Play it to the Bone

"Church music? It's too good for the church. Jesus was too good for the church, you ask me."

 ~Woody Harrelson as Vince Boudreau, in the rarely revisited boxing comedy Play it to the Bone (1999).

Putting together a long list of big names and a longer list of lines falling flat, it wasn't all bad. Subjectively speaking.

GIF Spotlight: BHOP Starts Push-Up Contest!

In 2011, The great Bernard Hopkins, not long after doing push-ups during the fight, decides to show again how daisy-fresh he is. This time, his opponent, Jean Pascal, refuses to make concessions and dives to the canvas in the background. In the lead-up, Hopkins taunted Pascal for being a "four-round fighter" to insult his stamina. Hopkins defeated a man 18 years' his junior that night. With respect to Pascal, he won the push-up contest too.

GIF Spotlight: BHOP Fitness Exhibition 2011

The great Bernard Hopkins' record-breaking performance against Jean Pascal in their 2011 rematch did not lack humour anymore than it lacked drama. Here is the old man doing pushups for what is likely a mix of showmanship and psychological warfare as his opponent watches on. I wonder if Referee Ian John-Lewis ever had to warn a fighter for exercising during the round before.

GIF Spotlight: Deontay Wilder Sends A Strange Message To Opponent (or Godzilla)

Deontay Wilder, much like Tyson Fury, has never run out of head-scratching fun in front of the camera.

From this pleasantly bizarre promo for Deontay Wilder VS Johann Duhaupas. As it says, PBC on NBC:
