Maccarinelli v Haye: Big Mac Blamed For UK Terror Quakes

Experts from the British Geological Survey now believe that WBO World Cruiserweight Champion Enzo Maccarinelli was the reason behind this mornings terror earthquakes that rocked Britain! The dynamite-fisted Welshman recently shifted his training sessions to the early hours of the morning to prepare for his mega-showdown with David Haye a week on Saturday at The O2 in London, and last night Big Mac put in an awesome power-packed session on a 400lb heavybag that experts believe triggered the earthquake which hit a staggering 5.1 on the Richter scale..

Professor T. Remor said, "The epicentre was originally believed to be 30 miles south of Hull but on further analysis of the data it appears that it was actually in the South Wales region in the early hours of the morning. This was the second biggest earthquake ever recorded in the UK. Strangely, the biggest hit Lleyn in North Wales back in 1984 (When Maccarinelli first put on a pair of boxing gloves!). An earthquake has a magnitude of four which is the equivalent of 1,000 tonnes of TNT or a small nuclear weapon. Last nights was of a magnitude four - which is pretty scary. As a boxing fan, I have read that Enzo Maccarinelli is working out at this time time for his fight with David Haye and we are now examining if he is the cause of these tremors."

Bewildered people lined up the streets as householders were shaken out of their beds and buildings shook, luckily WBC/WBA World Champion Haye is still training in Miami and missed the tremors otherwise he would have pulled out of the fight!

Maccarinelli v Haye is the biggest all British showdown since the Nigel Benn-Chris Eubank epics in the 90s. With 50 fights between them, 40 by way of knock-out and 30 coming inside three rounds it is expected to be the most explosive showdown in recent years and is televised live on Setanta in the UK and on Showtime in the US.

Maccarinelli said, "Wow! that was some training session Enzo Calzaghe put me through last night. Enzo had me working on power punches on the heavybag for over two hour and I can honestly say I have never punched a bag as hard as that in my life. We have had a specially made heavybag imported from America, the kind that Mike Tyson used to use, to focus on power punching and when I was unloading the bag just went flying everywhere. I apologise if people around Britain were disturbed during the night by this but I am giving them an advanced warning now that they had better be prepared on March 8 because when Haye lands on that canvas it will trigger off an even bigger earthquake!"
