Petruzelli is ‘now a star’

I think most people have accepted that Seth Petruzelli’s win over Kimbo has less to do with Seth being awesome and more to do with Kimbo being terrible. Not EliteXC’s Jared Shaw, who went from screaming at cageside that Seth had cheated to stringing together as many corny analogies as possible to pimp him out:

Following the bout, EliteXC Vice Preident Jared Shaw compared Petruzelli to another famed — albeit fictional — pugilist.

“[Petruzelli] is now the modern-day ‘Rocky Balboa,'” Shaw said. “Movies are real. When opportunity knocks, you answer it. And when you open the door, there may just be a pot of gold on the other side.

“For Seth Petruzelli, he’s now a star.”

If by star you mean footnote, then sure! Again, Seth Petruzelli just Buzz Berry’d Kimbo Slice, an ironic twist of fate indeed considering who Kimbo was supposed to fight.
