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.
