“I’m having lunch with Michael Avenatti…at the Vanity Fair Summit and he’s proposing a three-round mixed-martial arts fight with Donald Trump Jr….for charity,” said NBC News reporter Dylan Byers.
Avenatti, the attorney who is representing former porn star Stormy Daniels, says he is 100% in for the fight, saying “This would be good for two great causes. I’m in.” Although the challenge has not been officially accepted by Trump Jr. doesn’t mean we haven’t seen some jabs thrown by both parties involved.
Donald Trump Jr. took to Twitter on Monday, and tweeted a picture regarding Avenatti and his possible partner for a presidential run. Don Jr’s caption referred to the scheduled prison release date for the former shunned Congressman and registered pedophile, Anthony Weiner. Weiner is soon to be released from a 21-month prison sentence for “good behavior.” Anthony Weiner was incarcerated due to a sexting scandal with an underage girl.
"Who else is excited about Avenatti/Weiner 2020?!? It’s gonna be Carlos Dangerous," he wrote, making reference to Weiner's sexting alias "Carlos Danger."
Donald Trump Jr’s tweet definitely struck a nerve of Mr. Avenatti, who promptly replied with a rage filled and obviously defensive response.
"Bif: If I were you, the last thing I would be doing is referencing other people getting out of federal prison. Because after you are indicted, you will likely be passing them on your way in. [By the way], they don’t have silver spoons or gold toilets in the joint. Buckle up Buttercup."
Earlier this week, Attorney Michael Avenatti announced over Twitter that he will be creating "Fight PAC." Obviously trying to create some hype and attention, Avenatti is playing off his #FightClub hastag with aspirations of Donald Trump Jr. entertaining the idea of an MMA fight.
"Our mission is simple: We are not afraid to FIGHT for what we believe in – the values, principles, and ideals that made America, America. The stakes are too high and the risk is too great. We can no longer afford to bring nail clippers to a gun fight. It is time to fight fire with fire," reads the site. "The Fight PAC is focused on defeating Donald Trump’s Republican cronies and enablers across the nation, up and down the ballot. We are fighting for Democrats in all 50 states, Washington, D.C., and the territories. Our ask is simple: join us and be a part of the #FightClub." said Avenatti in a tweet.
The professional MMA community have even taken notice of this “possible” bout between the political foes. Some UFC pro’s took to twitter to provide the world with some of their opinions and possible outcomes if the fight actually plays out.
Avenatti promised if the event actually happened he would donate his entire portion of profit, noting that half would be used to rebuild Puerto Rico, while the other half would be donated to the group RAINN.
