The first ever match between a Sunni and Shiite boxer will take place at Nomadison Square Garden Tent in Baghdad this fall. Kamul Jawkhee and Reghed Saniger will take to the ring in a bout that will determine who will be the next heavyweight champion of the 3rd world.

The event was arranged by ambassadors from both Iraq and the United States with financing generously provided by the CIA and several defense contractors that wish to remain anonymous.

A spokesman for the State Department said the event will improve relations between the two waring factions and settle centuries-old tribal grievances by pitting their best athletes against each other in 15 blood-soaked rounds of beating their brains out in a civilized manner.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
