|Already widely recognised for the sponsorship of high-profile boxers, athletes and celebrities, online casino GoldenPalace.com has once again stepped into the ring, this time to team up with much criticised filmmaker Uwe Boll.|
The event which is titled GoldenPalace.com Presents Raging Boll, offers Boll the opportunity to confront his critics in the ring as he challenges all-comers to a three-round bout, which will form part of his next feature film ‘Postal’.
German filmmaker Boll is best known for several video game based films such as 'Alone in the Dark', 'House of the Dead', and 'BloodRayne', and is considered by many critics to be one of the world's worst filmmakers. However, after being publicly humiliated for his latest film BloodRayne earlier this year, Boll decided to settle the score. 'Many journalists make value judgments on my films based on the opinions of one or two thousand Internet voices,' claims Boll. 'Half of those opinions come from people who've never watched my films.'
Four bouts are currently scheduled for September 23 with another planned beforehand in Spain. Boll’s confirmed challengers are: Carlos Palencia Jimenez-Arguello Webmaster of cinecutre.com; Richard 'Lowtax' Kyanka Webmaster /CEO for Something Awful; Jeff Sneide Journalist for Ain't It Cool News; Chris Alexander Journalist / Radio Announcer for Rue Morgue; and Website Critic Nelson Chance Minter.
“This event is perfect for us,' said GoldenPalace.com CEO Richard Rowe. 'We receive so many outlandish offers for advertising exposure that it is refreshing to see something that surprises even us.”
