Poker stars to battle it out in the boxing ring

Tags: Bertrand ElkY Grospellier, boxing, lex veldhuis, prop bet.
Posted on 11 October 2011 by "T".

On November 22nd it's time for the long-awaited boxing match between Lex Veldhuis and Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier. The winner of the match will take home amazing $100,000 - and a whole lot of prestige. This is what Lex Veldhuis, from Holland, had to say about the upcoming match...

"We are gonna fight, I want to knock him out, which will be a bit of a shock to him, it will really play with his mentality. I think the fight is gonna have something ElkY has never experienced before, the pressure of someone really wanting to hurt him badly. I know he has the drive, but I have the same personality which is why we do a lot of prop bets." Veldhuis said in an interview.

Has an edge on ElkY
"I think my edge has decreased because he has been training harder than I have, but I can't see myself losing against ElkY in anything that involves coordination and sport. I have always been playing sport; sport, tennis, soccer, boxing - he just works out. I don't think strength matters all that much."

This is a joke...right? Question If is isn't, I'll give em two rounds before they can't lift their arms.

I think Elky is stronger than Lex, so all this pre-game talk is just to try to put some pressure on the oponent. Sometimes it works, but i rather think that Elky still has a lot to worry about before this HU.

LOL - Elky and boxing? This a joke?

Now that I have had a close look at Velhuis rack im going to laugh over his words also and put my bets on Elky Big Smile.

One thing Lex is right - strenght does not matter that much, but you do need arms that are made of more that just fat and bones to fight, no matter in ring or on streets with hooligans!

As a Dutch guy I have to say that Lex will crush him.
 Macubaas11/10/2011 20:26:33 GMT
This is pretty interesting, looking to some more details about this "fight" lol

I'm sure pokerstars will cover the subject pretty good on their poker blog Blink

I'm not a huge elyk fan and the other guy is pretty unknown to me...

I allways thought lex veldhuis is a big poker wanabee, dont like him, but have to give him some credits for this one lmao, i know lex his background a littl bit, lex was trying to go pro in tennis in his early days, have a sportsmind, i have no doubt lex will win this.
The big bluffing before the match i like big time from lex.
I remember the fight between Hansen and Jorgensen 1 year ago, this wasnt even a fight, Jorgensen was so much stronger it was completely laughable.
Have a very strong feeling this gonna be exactly the same, Lex the sportman against Elky ''Starcraft Wizzkid'', i deffo gonna watch this epic fight.
