Answer: Uwe Boll, director of many game-based movies such as Bloodrayne, challenged his most vocal critics to boxing matches. (I suppose he wanted to prove that he was just as bad as his movies were). The series of semi-staged fights was dubbed “Raging Boll” by the media. This particular clip was the first of the series, between Boll and Lowtax (AKA Richard Kyanka), Webmaster of the Parody site Something Awful. (Lowtax lost)
