Maybe instead of those boring debates, this is how President Obama and Mitt Romney should settle their differences.
Justin Trudeau, a Liberal member of the Canadian parliament and son of former Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Elliot Trudeau, recently took on right-wing conservative Senator Patrick Brazeau in a charity boxing match at the Hampton Inn Convention Centre in Ottawa.
Though Brazeau (5’10”, 183 pounds) is an “MMA specialist” and karate black belt, and was heavily favored to win, Trudeau (6’2″, 180 pounds) showed the tenacity that runs in his family, working behind a strong jab to weaken the right-winger, knocking him down in round two before stopping him mid-way through round three.
As the loser, Brazeau was forced to have his long hair shaved in foyer of the House of Commons, and to wear a Liberal Party jersey for a week.
