Beatdown 2012 at BB&T Center November 30

Who's ready for a Beatdown? This Friday, WBA fighters and hip-hop heavyweights will shuffle into the ring at the BB&T Center, presumably to cheer up Panther fans still pissed off over this year's NHL lockout. Featuring several title bouts, Beatdown 2012 culminates with the main event, which pits Joan "Little Tyson" Guzmán against Khabib "the Hawk" Allakhverdiev for the vacant WBA light-welterweight belt. If that's not enough to get you swigging Scotch and puffing your favorite Dominican cigar, Flo Rida, Waka Flocka Flame, Fat Joe, Travis Porter, and Fabolous — as well as the Mike Tyson of hip-hop, DMX — will all perform to fuel the blood lust. We don't know about you, but we're already doing lines of coke while shadowboxing our shirtless reflection in the bathroom mirror in preparation for this fiasco.
