There are a lot of strange sports. Curling, for example. Or quidditch. But the weirdest sport of all, it should be boxing. Because who in their hands, and now would like someone in each other? And who looks like to people who have other people in each other meppen?

But we see that all wrong, the insured royaltywatcher and bokscommentator Jan Van den Berghe us Boxing stars. ‘Master, Vermassen would speak of an irresistible urge”, he said. And we thought we’d remind you that Jef Vermassen once an assassin defends.
‘Boxing is chess with the body, ” says Van den Berghe. “All thinking people, especially to the violence is to do’ – it would indeed be rather silly as boxers there and just be around each other were dancing. And see, that thought Of den Berghe also: ‘Violence is there, of course, a little bit. In the worst case, it is a ballet with blood. But there is very much ringintelligentie to look.”
In short: boxers are intelligent ballerinas who play chess and occasionally blood flow. They found that at VTM, a great starting point for a program with BV’s to hang out. For Boxing stars take sixteen more or less well-known Flemish people against each other. Real heavyweights do not, whether that was yesterday or the bokscategorie with which the program began. Marie Verhulst (daughter of Gert, 22 years old, 71 kg) took it up against Natalia (nicknamed ‘the beast of Oevel’, 37-year-old, 70 kg).
After a few boring impressions about their preparation and what statements of support by family, they were in the ring introduced by Sergio, who so loudly and was about to roar that you wondered why they gave him a micro. When the camera also inzoomde on the wide-open throat, was the only really whacky. And then we had the camp yet to begin.
In the lord of the rings we were not, however. Three rounds of a minute and a half later, Marie Verhulst until the winner is declared. Or they now had boxing or molenwieken was not clear to us, but Natalia had, in any case, even more holes in the air whipped.
We got, like master Vermassen would say, an irresistible urge to move the tv off, but there was the second camp already. That went on between comedian Kamal Kharmach (26 years old, 95 kg) and actor Erik Goossens (50 years old, 85 kg), which nowadays is mainly known because he and his wife Bieke Ilegems cheated.
“I” m a lover, not a fighter, ” he said, and we believed him happy. This can also be seen when Kharmach him to body went. “It’s eat or be eaten’, that was for the camp said. “And I likes to eat.’ That was also Goossens quickly clear. On Bieke call did not, but it was not much. The referee made an early end. From the nose of Goossens dripped some blood. Maybe he should next time, just play a game of chess.
