Thrilla On The Hilla Justin Trudeau

Thrilla On The Hilla Justin Trudeau, The Trudeau legacy is safe, protected not in the halls of Parliament, but by the Pugilist from Papineau in a boxing ring. Underdog Justin Trudeau unleashed a flurry of punches on Conservative Senator Patrick Brazeau Saturday night to easily win a charity boxing match that was a flat-out brawl in front a partisan, bloodthirsty gathering in the nation’s capital.
The lanky Trudeau absorbed a ferocious blow from the senator in the first round of a three-round bout, but turned on his tormenter, staggering him time and again until the fight was stopped in the third round.
The MP had more stamina and the Tory ran out of gas in a hurry.
The fight was stopped three times as Trudeau put a pummeling on patronage like no MP before him.
They went toe-to-toe in an overcrowded convention hall where spectators could almost feel the punches land and the weight of the men dancing on the canvas shook the room.
The two men squared off in the most anticipated political event – that did not include voters – in recent memory.
Trudeau, who was taught to box as a boy by his father, was striving for the first significant Liberal victory of any kind since 2004.
Brazeau, a former aboriginal leader appointed to the Senate in 2009, had become more intense and more focused on a knockout, as the fight approached.
But this was really a dream for any Canadian who wanted to see a politician get hit in the head, in a ring, where parliamentary immunity is unknown, no Speaker can shut you down and you can’t turn and run from a hostile media scrum.
It was the ultimate result of every partisan dust-up ever threatened in the stately House of Commons where shouted slurs are common and physical challenges are sometimes tossed in anger.
The match was sanctioned by Boxing Ontario, the referees were Olympic-sanctioned and the scoring was under Olympic rules, under which clean hits, not powerful hits, scored points.
