TO & Hugh Throw Down

Jan 6, 2005, 10:15 AM EDT

From Yahoo:

Nov  6 Mark Eckel, of the Trenton Times, reports Philadelphia
Eagles WR Terrell Owens had a fistfight with former defensive end and
current team ambassador Hugh Douglas. The fight occurred in front of
several of his teammates. According to one of the sources the
Owens-Douglas fight "was like WWE Smackdown." Another source said both
men threw at least two punches during the altercation and when it was
over Owens challenged QB Donovan McNabb first and then everyone else in
the room saying, "You want some. Anyone else want some." The Eagles
refused to comment about the situation, other than the statement that
revealed Owens’ suspension. Owens and Douglas have been at odds since
training camp and almost got into an altercation in an elevator at
Lehigh University.

Wow.  That has to be a whole lot better than WWE Smackdown.  I’d put my money on Owens.  Supposedly this little scrap took place on Wednesday.  You can read Eckel’s article in the Trenton Times here.

Foxsports has a great recap of the fight:

Those present told FOXSports.com, while Owens was in the pool
rehabilitating his injured ankle, Douglas came into the area and began
to get on the outspoken wide receiver. The two jawed back and forth
before, believe it or not, Owens got out of the pool and went to get
his sneakers on in order to get traction to throw some blows.

When
he came back, with shoes on, Owens and Douglas started swinging.
Douglas threw a shot, which missed, then Owens threw five or six
punches and landed a couple.
