    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Cricket Fighters

    LO-Fucking-L. I love cricket. Because cricketers are funny.

    Let's start in New Zealand, because this **** is fresh.

    Jesse Ryder is an All Rounder who plays International Cricket for New Zealand. Not that any of you give a ****, especially if you're from North America, but let's just say he's decent player. But, he has problems with liquor and discipline and **** and is known for pissing off his team mates and running his mouth.
    Mark Watson is a Journalist who has gone on record saying Ryder is full of ****. Ryder (the player) in response challenges him to a boxing match. Because that's how real men solve their fucking problems and prove that they are not indisciplined alcoholics, or something.
    Watson not only accepts, but shows up. Hilarity Ensues:



    Less Hilarious story, but if you follow cricket in England you know former captain Adam Hollioake is into that cage-fightin' ****. He's fucking 40, and after a long cricket career he is now dodging punches instead of shiny red balls.

    His debut:




    As far as sports goes, cricket is the only one where the games can last five days and you spend 3 of those 5 days sitting in the shade reading a fucking book. If those motherfuckers can get into fighting, then you should stop being a *****.

    LO-motherfucking-L

    i watched that whole event that jesse ryder was on the other night. i actually thought the other guy was gonna take it right up til they got in the ring and ryder started moving around, he looked far more like he knew what he was doing. funny fight. cricket is the most boring fucking sport on earth, maybe he spends his time in the outfield shadowboxing?

    I had no idea there were "bad boys of cricket". Last sport in the world I'd imagine crossing over into MMA.

    That's like a grudge match between synchronized swimmers, but with less muscle.

    Thanks for sharing the lulz!

    Ryder's always been a scrappy little ****. Very much the "pick a fight with some random at the pub" kind of guy. Mark Watson's only real hope was always going to be that Ryder spent too much time getting pissed and eating McD's to worry about training, but obviously the chance to beat up a journalist was enough motivation for him.

    One of those nations is South Africa, and we're just "bad boys" by definition.

    Incidentally, I was at the match in Kingston where New Zealand was utterly Annihilated by The West Indies. And the anyone who gets annihilated by the West Indies should be fucking embarrassed. Maybe they could have used Ryder...

    So are the the cricket fights like north american tough man competitions except the fighters are picked to settle the score over a major dispute between the two of them? Essentially was one guy challenged to a duel for talking ****?
