Yes, you heard right! When PokerStars EPT Copenhagen finished last Saturday Gus Hansen challenged his fellow countrymen Theo Jörgensen for a real fight in the boxing ring. And of course money was involved as we are talking about some of the most successful poker players there are.
Gus Hansen was the one that came up with the brilliant idea to challenge another poker player in the boxing ring for some serious cash, this in order to promote his new site Gus Hansen TV. The one that accepted Gus challenge was no one less than Theo Jörgensen who is known to be someone that is not afraid to take on new challenges.
Before the match
Gus was the big favorite to win the fight as he's a quite big guy, he used to train a lot and still does. Theo is also very fit but no one could ever even imagine that he could beat Gus Hansen more than at the poker table. Gus was also very confident that he would win the fight as he and Theo agreed that Gus would get $25,000 if he won and Theo would get $35,000 if he won. This means that Gus would get $10, 000 less if he took home the fight.
It was a very tuff match between the two Danish poker pros. One could see that both of them had been training very hard before the match and that neither of them wanted to lose. Unfortunately for Gus Hansen was that he underestimated his opponent Theo Jörgensen who took home the match on points after a couple of rounds.
Here you can watch the match between Gus Hansen and Theo Jörgensen

| Some of the punches were pretty nice ... |
But you know what would of been great? puttin them in a ring with a boxing pro and see if they can last 4-5 rounds

| i bet we are gonna see more fights like this (hope so anyways) - always fun to see amateurs boxing |
would be funnier without helmets but as far as i remember the rules do not allow it.
@oaiaaia, 1 round cost alot breath...and i dont think its gonna be a good fight because he would run like a rabbit, except hes boxing vs a lower class boxer.
but we had something like this in germany. a german showmaster has been boxing vs regina halmich. maybe you know her (she has been light weight worldchampion for over 7 years i think)...she knocked him out
edit: as far as i remember she weighs 30kg less than him

| Actually, Theo was the favourite due to him training 4 months plus and Gus only training a few weeks. And Gus Hansen just recently had knee surgery too. It was funny he came to the ring in a wheel chair with "do you really want to hurt me" song |
Nice one B1gfoot Ya, usually when a fighter smiles, that means he got hurt.

Just before the fight, Dwan and Antonious were playing the "Durrr Challenge. They stopped playing to watch the fight and Antonious said something like "stupid head gear..no ones going to get hurt" lol. And Antonius bet on Theo and Dwan bet on Gus.

| B1gfoot, I didn't watch the whole fight, I just skimmed through it. I seen a couple good punches by Gus and he was the aggressive one but I think Theo's jabs won the fight. |
Did you guys notice Gus fell down?

| Nice one Gus but lets keep serious...u are a much better poker player than a boxer! Bet ur money on a table instead of betting on a fight...or try doyle in a fight..lol|
| GeneYuss||02/03/2009 07:54:44 GMT|
| "try doyle in a fight" Did you hear some magazine said Doyle is in the top 15 people to die in 2009 lol. Than Doyle bet him 10 to 1 that he won't die in 2009. 10k to 1k, but it will all go to charity.|

| It was a nice fight I have to say, some good punches, and I got to say, Gus can take some hits, I didn't expect that. Still technique is something they didn't trained for I guess . Next time maybe instead of a boxing match a UFC freefight match between durr and Helmuth.|
