If you were under the impression that Lee Priest has put any desires to get into the squared circle with IFBB Hall of Famer "Sugar" Shawn Ray away, then you'd be sorely mistaken. Just as recently as a couple days ago, the rhetoric was at an all-time high. In fact, some of what was said, went beyond basic modicums of decency. It almost seemed as if the aging Aussie was desperately trying to get under the of the accomplished bodybuilder's skin. At this point, who really knows? Perhaps Priest feels the need to constantly outdo himself; perhaps, in his mind, he needs to be entertaining and the only way to accomplish that goal, is to offend the greatest number of people in the shortest amount of time. There's certainly ample evidence to make this claim, but maybe I have Lee all wrong.
The bottom line is, Ray has absolutely nothing to gain from fighting Lee. The only winner in such a showdown would be the guy who can't seem to let it go.
I have always said that Lee has a great deal to offer when it comes to his physique and his knowledge of bodybuilding; however, Priest continues to comfort himself like a bratty child. It's cost him a promising career on - and now - off the stage.
In any event, you can drag a horse to water, but you can't make it drink. What's your take on Lee Priest's obsession with fighting Shawn Ray in a celebrity boxing match? I'm dying to know your thoughts. Please feel free to leave a comment here - or - wherever you may see this post.
