Last week we told you about Ted Forrest's fight to collect on a four year old weight loss prop bet against “Check-Raising The Devil” author Mike Matusow.
Not only have Ted’s cries for prop bet justice not been calmed, he has in fact doubled down on the very public attack of his one-time friend in an effort to shame him into making some kind of good-will payments.
In fact, when someone on Twitter suggested that Ted literally fight Mike for the cash…if Ted wins, then Mike stars paying, but if Mike wins, Ted is owed nothing…Ted actually seemed to be game.
From Forrest’s answers, Ted’s more than game…he’s pretty confident. So much so that he says he’d even pay Mike back all the money he’s been paid if he lost.
Perhaps there’s another big weight swing coming for Ted. While it seems unlikely that he and Mike would actually duke it out for $2M, Ted seems desperate enough to almost do anything to get that money back…including packing back on the pounds he lost.
It seems like if Mike has any plans to pay Ted back, this would be a no-lose situation. If Matusow gets in the ring and knocked Ted out, he wins his monetary freedom. If he loses, well, he pays Ted what he was going to pay him anyway. It’s a pound-for-pound freeroll for The Mouth…unless The Mouth sticks to the sentiments in his deleted tweets from last week and has no intention of paying Forrest another dime.
Is there any amount of money you would pay to watch these guys go at it?
