Uwe Boll Finds Some Punching Bags

Remember a little while back when trash-master Uwe Boll challenged his (numerous) critics to a little boxing match? Well, it seems like he finally has some takers, and the bouts will take place in … Vancouver.

GoldenPalace.com sponsors filmmaker’s revenge

MONDAY, AUGUST 21, 2006, VANCOUVER, BC — GoldenPalace.com is proud to present Raging Boll. Uwe Boll, the German filmmaker best known for several video game based films like "Alone in the Dark," "House of the Dead,"
"BloodRayne" & "In The Name of The King: A Dungeon Siege Tale," is considered by many critics to be one of the world’s worst filmmakers. His movies, however, have made him more money than his critics will earn in several lifetimes.

After receiving a slew of horrid reviews for his latest film "BloodRayne" earlier this year, Boll was incensed and did what any successful filmmaker would do — challenged his detractors to a boxing match to knock some sense into them and settle the score. "Many journalists make value judgments on my films based on the opinions of one or two thousand Internet voices," claims Boll. "Half of those opinions come from people who’ve never watched my films."

Boll proposed a 3-round match against anyone with the guts to step into the ring with him. The matches would receive international exposure and be filmed as part of his next feature film, "Postal’." Given their history of unique marketing campaigns, Internet casino GoldenPalace.com jumped at the chance to sponsor this event, now titled GoldenPalace.com Presents Raging Boll. Over the years, they have become widely recognized for sponsoring high-profile boxers, athletes, and celebrities. "This event is perfect for us," said GoldenPalace.com CEO Richard Rowe. "We receive so many outlandish offers for advertising exposure that it is refreshing to see something that surprises even us. That is why we decided to get involved. This has gotten so much attention so far, and we can’t wait to see how it will turn out."

Four matches are currently scheduled for September 23 and one match planned earlier in Spain for a total of five opponents. Boll is ready to take on even more people willing to fight, and his challenge remains on the table.
There are some critics who chickened out and didn’t follow through with their challenges. The following 5 challengers have been picked by our selection committee to represent some of Uwe Boll’s harshest critics.
These particular challengers are prepared to box Dr. Boll on September 23rd, 2006, in Vancouver, where they will finally get the opportunity to try to inflict some pain on the man they claim has done it to them for years.

The Carlos Palencia / Uwe Boll fight will occur in Malaga, Spain early in September. The date in Spain is still to be confirmed. The actual fight will be filmed for inclusion with the other Vancouver fights. With Uwe Boll receiving a film award from the International Film Festival of Fantastic Cinema and Terror in Malaga, Spain for his work with "BloodRayne," this gives us the opportunity to hold our first fight in Spain.

Setting the standard in marketing creativity, GoldenPalace.com has devised some of the most exciting and outrageous advertising campaigns in the past few years. Items such as the Virgin Mary Grilled Cheese Sandwich, Britney Spears’ Pregnancy Test, and William Shatner’s Kidney Stone have garnered extensive worldwide media attention for the casino. GoldenPalace.com has also used their items and marketing to raise awareness and funds for over $1,000,000 for various charities worldwide."

Hoo boy. Where’s Tonya Harding when we need her?
