Mark King -v- Quinten Hann Boxing match???

From Wednesday's Daily Start

Quote:
Snooker bad boy Quinten Hann rocked the sport after challenging conqueror Andy Hicks to a fight at the Crucible this year - and he now has the chance to show his boxing credentials.
Aussie Hann is to take on Brit challenger Mark King - the world number 22 - in a sanctioned fight over four two-minute rounds at York Hall in Bethnal Green, London on June 11.

Clash
Hann and Hicks had to be seperated by referee Lawrie Annadale after their first round clash in Sheffield.
Following a 10-4 win for Hicks Hann said: "You're short and bald and you can have me outside any time.
King said: "I can't wait to smash his face in. Andy Hicks is a good bloke and Hann was just picking on him. Let's see how he gets on with me."
Go on King! Any truth in this?

Yep, was reading it in yesterdays Sun & the winner collects £10,000. Should be a good laugh, Mark will crush him.

I was at the Snooker in Citywest and I watched the second round match where he beat Stephen Lee.

He really is a loud mouthed prick! He was cursing his way around the table and throwing the audience dirty looks.

I was sitting in the seat beside his girlfriend and she kept staring at Stephen like she was trying to put him off his game or something!!

It was strange..

if king is as dumb as he looks i think its "Ding Ding!!"
The only reason Hann picked on Hicks is cos he thinks he'd have him. I've never had time for Hann. Theres a touch of the old Val Kilmer about him.
Grade A tosser.

Odd's from PP:

King: 2/7
Hann: 9/4.

How will the Boxing Match be Won?

King K.O: 5/4
King on Points: 6/4
Hann K.O: 12/1
Hann on Points: 10/3
Either player to be disqualified for hiding snooker balls in their boxing glove: 66/1.

Yes, unfortunately he did. It was a points decision - no knock outs . Apparently the animosity they had towards each other was increased just to hype up the match - well duh! They even managed the pre-fight fight
