If you're looking to stage an exotic-animal-versus- man fight, Al Sayed al Essawy is happy to report you can totally get away with it in the great nation of Egypt.
Mr. Al Essawy successfully staged his fight with a five year old male lion in a cage in a rural wheat field in the village of Saba'a Al Thabit. The self-styled strongman and wrestler claimed victory over a largely disinterested lion, who one person in the crowd claims was sleepy from being fed an entire donkey prior to the fight. Success for Mr. Al Essawy consisted of what he called the lion's "surrender," which he claims happened when the stupefied animal laid down in the corner of the cage and refused to do anything. If this sounds like 80% of professional boxing matches, there is a reason. It is exactly like 80% of professional boxing matches.
Flush with success, Mr. Al-Essawy's next opponent will be...um...something.
In one month's time, he plans to fight two lions at once. Or perhaps a gorilla, he said. Or maybe a shark.
There's always the bearsharktopus, Mr. Al-Essawy. If you would like to buy one, send one check of $1,000,000,000 to "The Internet." Delivery guaranteed in one to fiftyleven days, we promise.
