Mike Greenberg Is Trying To Become A Boxer

Wednesday, March 04, 2009

I've grown tired of Mike & Mike's stunts in an attempt to get viewers, but this one actually caught my attention. Mike Greenberg is bringing in longtime trainer and ESPN Boxing analyst, Teddy Atlas, for a one-day crash course on the Sport. This of course will televised on the M&M simulcast, and will certainly be good for some few laughs. Via ESPN PR....

ESPN's Mike Greenberg has incorporated boxing into his work-out regime, and Teddy Atlas has made boxing his life. The two will meet at ESPN’s Bristol, Conn., “Wellness Center,” and the co-host of ESPN Radio’s Mike & Mike in the Morning will find out what the sport is all about from the renowned trainer and ESPN boxing analyst.

On Friday, March 6, at 7:40 a.m., Atlas will join Greenberg and co-host Mike Golic in studio to appraise “Greeny’s” pugilistic propensity, with fans able to see for themselves on the ESPN2 simulcast and ESPNRadio.com. Video of Greenberg's gym session (taped today, Wed., March 4) will also run during ESPN2 Friday Night Fights (8:30 p.m.).
Everyone pokes fun at the "metrosexual" nature of Greenberg, but I'm going to pass on that because it's too easy. Good for him trying something new, and hopefully he doesn't mess up the manicure he's scheduled to get the day before.

Dammit....I knew I couldn't pull it off.


I can't believe Teddy is going along with this shit. That must be quite a grip they have on his nuts these days.

Since when did Teddy Atlas training a gay man = ratings?

It will equal ratings because people--perhaps myself included--just want to see Greenie get pounded on.

Is there a ESPN-brand contest to get the chance to punch him in the head?

If so, I'd like to enter it.

I just watched some of M&M this morning (because my boy Joe Flacco was on there) and Greeny is refusing to spar because he doesn't want to get hit in the face.

Also, they said it's airing during Friday Night Fights, which could use any ratings boost it can get.
