Michelle Beadle is a host of ESPN’s SportsNation, but she is woefully unprepared for this Saturday’s big boxing bout between Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather. Thankfully, her co-hosts, Max Kellerman and Marcellus Wiley, have the perfect solution to get her in fighting shape: Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out!!
While Kellerman and Wiley don’t stick a controller in her hands and force her to fight Kid Dynamite himself, they do drop Beadle inside for an amusing homage to Nintendo’s classic boxing game. It’s bizarre, but then again, so is Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out!!
As of this writing, Mayweather is listed as a 2:1 favorite versus Pacquiao. Those aren’t terrible odds, but Pacquiao might have better luck taking on Tyson’s NES doppelganger. After all, somebody beat him blindfolded not too long ago.
