The Fat Boys burst onto the eighties music scene and have since dwindled down into part of a Hip-Hop history lesson. Now more than 20 years since their debut, one of the original members is having his name thrust back into the spotlight. Prince Markie Dee of the Original Fat Boys is preparing to try his luck in the wrestling ring. The Fat Boy is taking retired WWF Wrestler, Iron Shiek to the ring following comments he made on the Howard Stern show.
According to the old school veteran, he witnessed Shiek call a staff member on Howard Stern’s radio show a “little ni**er.” Feeling offended, Dee challenged the retired wrestler to step up and meet him in the ring. Via Twitter, UFC/MMA Legendary fighter, Frank Trigg has offered to train the Fat Boy for the fight. When this fight goes down, Prince Markie Dee will donate the money raised to charity.
The fight between the original Fat Boy and The Iron Sheik will be a pay per view event. For more information visit http://www.OriginalFatBoys.com/fight
The Fat Boys will also continue their charitable endeavors with an upcoming benefit in May of next year. They’ll hit the stage at Fat Boys Fest to support Markie Dee’s “Labor of Love” charity. The group also supports several other charitable organizations including “LetsGetThis.org”, “First Book” and “Susan G. Komen for the Cure.”
