If you thought Kimbo Slice got paid nicely to get knocked out 14 seconds, think again. News broke this afternoon that Lehman Brothers CEO Dick Fuld got knocked out cold by a former employee at the company gym after he announced that Lehman was going under. From Gawker:
While former Lehman CEO Richard Fuld was testifying before the House Oversight Committee Oct. 6, CNBC reported he had been punched in the face at the Lehman Brothers gym after it was announced the firm was going bankrupt. CNBC and Vanity Fair contributor Vicki Ward said Fuld was attacked at the gym on a Sunday following the bankruptcy..
â€œFrom two very senior sources â€“ one incredibly senior source â€“ that he went to the gym after â€¦ Lehman was announced as going under. He was on a treadmill with a heart monitor on. Someone was in the corner, pumping iron and he walked over and he knocked him out cold. And frankly after having watched this, Iâ€™d have done the same too.â€
So aparently Kimbo Slice and Dick Fuld have both gotten knocked out in under 14 seconds. The only unfortunate part of this whole mess is that Kimbo only took home a fraction of the $489 Million that Fuld made at Lehman Brothers.
