It was one of the greatest scandals in Olympic history and now Tonya Harding and Nancy Kerrigan are being offered big bucks to settle their grudge — not on the ice, but in the ring!
It has been almost 20 years since Harding’s ex-husband and bodyguard hired a man to attack skating rival Kerrigan, smashing her leg with a baton in an attempt to prevent her skating in the 1994 Olympics.
Now one of the United Kingdom’s richest men is offering both ladies $100,000 each to duke out their differences in the ring.
Digital media entrepreneur, FilmOn’s Alki David, has announced he wants the women to face off November 5 in three one-minute rounds.
“David is giving Kerrigan the chance to return to stardom in a fun three one-minute round match as part of his great celebrity fight night card,” David’s announcement said.
However, Kerrigan may be a little bit apprehensive about facing off against her skating nemesis — not just because of their past — but because Harding has had a short-lived professional boxing career.
Tragedy once again struck Kerrigan last year when her father died after her brother attacked him during an argument.
In May, a jury found Mark Kerrigan not guilty of manslaughter but convicted him of assault and battery after his defense successfully argued 70-year-old David Kerrigan’s heart disease caused his death.
