During the fight, Anderson kept taunting Chris to hit him. Finally, that’s what Chris did and the ref called the fight at 1:18.
“It got to the point where he was putting his hands down and kept talking,” Chris said after the fight. “I’m like, ‘You know what, I just want to punch this guy in the face right now.'”
Chris won $24,000 in show money, and another $24,000. Meanwhile, Anderson earned a whopping $600,000!
It sounds like Chris really needed to let off some steam and celebrate such a big win. This past year his home in NJ was devastated by Hurricane Sandy and he and his wife had to move in with his parents.
you glad Chris went out to celebrate after the fight?
