In what we can only hope will prove to be as long and storied boxing career as those of Cowboy Bob Orton, Jose Canseco and Ed “Too Tall” Jones, Stitches, the man behind THE GREATEST SONG OF ALL TIME, has agreed to face Philly MC Jemal “Supreem” Carter as part of something called the World Xtreme Entertainment Celebrity Boxing championships. From New Times’ Ryan Pfeffer :
This isn’t the fight Stitches really wants. He wants to fight the Game, a rapper whom he’s publicly feuded with over the past six months. Stitches actually did try to Fight the game back in December. He stalked the rapper outside Story, where the Game was making an appearance, but he was eventually knocked out by a member of the Game’s entourage. The whole thing was caught on video. Soon a mugshot surfaced showing Stitches with actual stitches. The whole thing, again, was either very funny or sad, depending on your perspective of life.
The Game did not respond to World Xtreme Entertainment Celebrity Boxing’s request for a match, according to owner Damon Feldman. Feldman hopes this match will build enough hype for the Game to eventually step in the ring.
The three-round fight will take place May 7 at 2300 Arena in Philadelphia.
