One-On-One with Ring Announcer Michael Buffer

Posted: Updated:

So I covered the World Light Welterweight Championship Fight between Manny Pacquiao and Ricky Hatton in Vegas. Ok, I was at the strip clubs most of the time. But I found out there's a lot that goes in to watching a guy beat the crap out of another guy. For instance, there is someone whose actual job is asking the audience if they are ready to rumble. Great question, why didn't I think of that?

I met with the man who poses this query - Michael Buffer. How did he come up with the question? Have there been times when the crowd is NOT ready to rumble and the fight has to be canceled? Watch this segment I filmed and find out.

Oh, and if you want to know about strip club etiquette I can help with that too. Apparently it's inappropriate to ask the stripper, "Hey, what's that scar there, a bullet wound?"
