If you had four garden gnomes and stacked three on top of each other, Mark Wahlberg might be able to reach to put the fourth one on top, but apparently playing a boxer makes him think he could actually beat the greatest fighter of the last ten years.
Wahlberg was on the “Dan Patrick Show” this morning — where he revealed that he “clocked” a guy in a L.A. nightclub recently … and “fish hooked” some guy’s eye socket during a rumble at a Patriots-Jets football game a few years ago. Crazy violent stuff. (Audio here) But the most shocking part — Wahlberg, who trained as a boxer for his new movie “The Fighter” — thinks he could K.O. Manny Pacquiao … if he could land a suckerpunch to the side of his head. Wahlberg explains, “If I can choke him and wrestle him than that’s it … but I don’t want to be, you know, getting picked apart by him … that’s not a good call.”
I don’t know if the makeup guy on set gave him some poison foundation that fucked with his brain or what, but Floyd Mayweather, Jr. won’t even fight this guy. And people who fight Mayweather need GPS to find their corners after the first round. Maybe Wahlberg thought Dan Patrick asked him about Handy Manny, I don’t know. I’ve taken Krav Maga for a long time now, and the only way I’d get in a ring with Manny Pacquiao is if I had a pet dragon with lasers for eyes or we were at the circus.
