HBO BOXING AFTER DARK PRESENTS: REY MASCULINO vs LOTUS KROSS Live from Caesars Palace Howard Kossel: Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to Caesars Palace. In just a few moments we will present to you the highly publicized, perhaps the most talked about text battle in recent memory. These to men do not like each other on bit. I’m Howard Kossel, with me to call the fight is none other than Larry Merchant, and the 2-time heavyweight champion Big George Forman. Gentlemen, Lotus Kross is a legend at this message board. I just can’t picture him losing to Rey Masculino, not after all the trash talk that Reys done in recent weeks. If I had to chose, I’d say that Lotus wins a close and very heated battle. Predictions anyone? Larry Merchant: Well Howard, Lotus is obviously the fan favorite here tonight. Lotus is known for street-slang, and bullet-riddled punch lines. His only knock is that some feel that he hasn’t had any decent competition. He’s facing a competitor known for his multis and clever, well put together wordplay. Rey is probably the most cerebral lyricist in this board. I’m guessing it will be close, but in the end, this “pro-Lotus” crowd will not vote against their champion. I say Lotus takes home a win. George Forman: I don’t know what either one of you is talking about. Your right, Lotus hasn’t battled any one worth mentioning in recent memory. Both men have done a lot of trash talking. But judging their recent battles, I’d have to give Rey the edge. Look at his battle against Sub-Zero, it was a constant barrage of multi’s and punch lines. Sub didn’t have a chance to breath. And in his battle that he posted against Master Peace, he flat out obliterated him. When Lotus battled Master Peace, he won the battle, but the judges were confused about some of the punch lines. Lotus is known for his raw, uncut street lyrics. But in a battle against a lyricist like Masculino, talking about selling drugs and shooting guns will get you no where… especially since we recently discovered the true, white identity of Lotus. Rey won’t be beaten with a jab, an uppercut, a left-hook or a “Lotus-Kross”. I say Rey wins it hands down. Howard Kossel: Forman obviously has eaten one too many burgers, the grease has started to go to his head. Now the moment we’ve all been waiting for. Lets send it down to Referee Mills Lane….. Judge Mills Lane : (RULES) Ok you two know the rules but I’ll go over them again. Post 10-20 lines… Curse words are legal, except the “N” word….Lotus can’t say it and neither can you REY! Once you post your verse you must wait until all the votes are in before you reply. All votes must come with a very detailed explanation on why they voted for whom, and please…no dick rhyding… Touch mics and come out spit’n….. LETS GET IT ON!!!! Ding!
