ht promoter, got your fight canceled. - he did what? where is he? - [lamont] in the house. - fred, what did you do? - shh! yerby, i'm concentrating on the schedule for junior's personal appearance tour. - tour? - right. i figure we can cover uh, 37 cities in four days. and then if we carry along a rock group, (audience laughs) - but lamont just told me that junior's fight was canceled. - yerby, next time a little bird whispers something in your ear, make sure it's not a looney bird. - then the fight's back on. - 99 and 44/100's back on. see, now clancy's coming over here later on to watch junior fight, and if he likes what he sees, we back in business. - watch him fight? - [fred] yeah. - well, who's his sparring partner?
think i'd leave out the most important detail, do you? see, i plan ahead. lamont, put your gloves on, son, and go on out there and get ready to box three or four rounds with junior. - you must be crazy. i ain't gonna fight nobody. - son, don't look at it as a fight. look at it as our new red truck. - i look at it as my fresh red blood. i ain't fighting nobody. oh, say, lamont, i want you to meet mr. clancy fitzgerald, the fight promoter. - hi. - how you doing? - mr. wilson, where is junior's sparring partner? i haven't got all day. - folks, you'll notice a celebrity has just joined us here in camp. one of the great names in the fight business. - oh, you don't have to introduce me, yerby. - i'm talking about a great fight promoter,
now, you've all been watching the champ exercise and work out, and in a few minutes, we're gonna present some thrilling exhibition boxing. - oh, no, we're not. - oh, yes, we are. (audience applauding) - what do you think i'm dressed like this for? what do you think, i'm selling sherbet? - look, i, look, i can't let you go in there and fight junior. you'll get killed. - oh no, i won't. i'm going in there and take care of him. when i come back, i might give you two or three of these across your lips. - ok, open wide now.
- pop, i can see right through your little scheme. see, you think you're gonna shame me into going in there and fighting junior, but it's not gonna work. if you want to go in there and fight junior, go on with your bad self. - well, i want to. now help me get through them ropes. (audience laughs) well, don't stand there! help me up!
- hey, lamont, i tried to, but he's determined to get those new tires for your truck. - how did you know about that? - hey, that's the first thing he said to me when i mentioned this deal to him, that you could get killed on those bald-headed tires, and he was gonna get you some new ones. - he said that? (sighing) let me have the gloves, pop. - huh? (audience applauding) and thank you so much, hear? - you know what you're asking me to do, don't you? you're asking me to come in here and get killed. - well, i'm only gonna ask you this one time. - all right, you both know the rules. - ok, uh, n, n, now, junior, i want to see you hitting hard, moving fast, and don't let up. - i'm ready. - and listen, son, you hit him slow, and hit him soft,
and when he hits you with all of his might in your stomach, bend over and cry some, and then when he knocks you unconscious, lay there and don't move. ok, son? go ahead. - all right, now you both know the rules.come . - well, let's get this over with. - over with! hey, lamont. did he hit you before the bell rang? come on, son, get up. you big dummy, you! you, you hit my son before the bell rang? nobody does that! nobody does that to a sanford and lives! he hit you before-- all right, you big dummy! (grunting) hey, look! hey, look at that!
(audience applauding) - fred, you crazy! you crazy! you done blow the whole deal! - well, when i saw him hit my son, i couldn't help it. yep, i just went crazy! you don't do that. - oh i'm sorry, mr. fitzgerald, but this is-- - no, no, no, no! i like junior, yerby. i like him! i like the way he handles himself. now, do you think he can do that friday night? - do what? - oh yeah, i've seen him do it even faster than that! - oh good, good, then he is back on the card because i've got to have a fast knockout friday night to make my own fighter look good. - you got it. - i like him, but i don't want to see him anywhere near the arena. - i don't want to be near the arena where you are because you're a crook, and you're a cheat, and you're not honest. - oh, i get it. - give me my money back. - how much will it cost to buy you out? - give me 50.
