Andre the Giant looks like a big giant bear trying to box. LOL

Awesome, simply priceless! :)

Andre was probably the biggest Icon in 70's Wrestling - he was apparently
7" 1 inches tall. I have to say this was very hard to watch - they should
have stuck to wrestling. It is all scripted as we all now know.

Andre the Giant vs Gorilla Monsoon in a Boxing match 1977

Gorilla Monsoon was a very tall man himself, especially during his prime,
he was easily 6'5", and looked about 6'4" towards the end of his life. He
was much taller than 6'1" Steve Austin and 6'3" Muhammad Ali.

Author john mullens ( ago)
I don't quite understand the debate on the size of the Giant.. 7'4" isn't
that uncommon among europeans. The build of the body is "long and thin"
which isn't Andre's build (wasn't) but one of MY old friends was 7'5"..
Gorilla was about the same height as Vader I noticed on one video. Vader
was a BIG man.. but look at how Andre towers over Gorilla in this video.
I'm not saying I defo know Andre the Giant WAS 7'4" but it is certainly
believable.. I myself am 6'3' and I know Hulk Hogan for example is a man I
would literally look up to.. yeah, I'd say HE is or was 6'8" in his prime..
BTW, Wonderful video! very enjoyable!

Author bill smith ( ago)
This vid is hilarious. As fake as it is and even with the debate over
Andre's weight and height, can you imagine what Andre could have done to
people if he actually lost his temper? I do not believe Andre had it in him
though. Lets face it, "professional wrestling" is a joke. Pure
entertainment. Scripted, formulated twaddle really. Don't get me wrong,
what they do is incredibly physical and very hard on the body. They suffer
many injuries. They get hurt. But if Andre REALLY wanted to hurt you you
would be fucked...But he never did. He truly was a gentle giant. I have
read many things about Mr Roussimoff, but never a bad one. By all accounts
a lovely man who brought joy to many, despite the pain and isolation that
his condition afflicted upon him. Rest in peace big fella :)

Lord Alfred Hayes commentary is classic. 

Author Max Davis ( ago)
two huge bulls workin gut and heads… big assed MEN takin & givin punishment…
Monsoon was best technical fighter & boxer but softened up good by the
bigger man…sorry to see the better man lose here...

Author Eyes11 ( ago)
"Bow!", "OOOH!, "My Word!" "AOWWO!", "Woah HO!"

Lord Alfred Hayes doing his best "Adam West Batman 60s TV Show"
impression. His reactions to the hard blows and laughing really make this
video. What an announcer.

Pure, unadulterated sports entertainment.

Monsoon knew how to draw Heat. 10000x better than anybody today.

Cena draws heat, but the wrong kind. 

Author lightningsmokerXx ( ago)
ridiculously Fake

Author Roger Wilson ( ago)
Lord Alfred certainly exaggerated the hell out of the tale of the tape,
Monsoon was 6'5 Alfred has him at of 7'0. I know it's all scripted and over
the top but that mam he's stretching it, literally.

WOW awesome, great video

Author TheGerryhmaster ( ago)
Wow Gorilla Monsoon must have put extra time in at the gym...what a
washboard stomach!

Author yidy1 ( ago)
Don't know if anyone here noticed this: At 5:28 Monsoon spits some liquid
into the face of Andre the Giant, and while the giant is disoriented the
Gorilla goes to town on him...

Author JeXsXsXe ( ago)
Now, THAT'S wrestling entertainment.

Super Macho-Man from the Mike Tyson games must of been modeled after Andre
the Giant. lol

Muñecaso era de un personaje amanerado

Author Thaye ( ago)
That's easy enough. Thanks.

Author BengalBruin ( ago)
heel - bad guy face - good guy

Author MultiSamTaylor ( ago)
That KO should not have counted since referee Wolcott had gotten between
the two fighters--- Andre was not supposed to throw a punch during what was
essentially a break! Monsoon was cheated!

Author Thaye ( ago)
I've been enjoying lots of wrestling matches on Youtube lately and have to
admit they do put on a good show, but I haven't watched it since I was
small, I'm not a native english speaker, so I need a little help here:
What's "heel" and "face"? I'm not sure I understand those.

Author Mr. Bludclot ( ago)
and "article" or wikipedia? lol

Author Max Davis ( ago)
Andre delivers awesome gut hook to that huge Gorilla gut at 2:50...drapes
that fat ass over the ropes at 3:00... Monsoon never recovers from those
chops after that... Andre owned him...

Author roger wilson ( ago)
Lord Alfred is lying his ass off calming Monsoon was 7'0. Dude was more
like 6'5.

Author jpsholland ( ago)
I have read a article about Andre the Giant in Readers Digest about 1988,
1989 that his official medical records states that he was 2.25m or nearly
7.4ft at the heyday of his life. Andre suffered from a disease that kept
his body growing fast and endless. At the age of 12 his was equal in size
as the average 16 yo boy living in France at the time. At the end of his
life Andre his body start to collapse under his weight but still keep on
growing. This disease also toke his life.

Author kalai131 ( ago)

Gorilla Monsoon was far better On The Microphone!

Author Jiltedin2007 ( ago)
R.I.P. Andre The Giant and Gorilla Monsoon. Two Personalities of the WWF
that will never be forgotten. Outside of Jim Ross, there will NEVER be a
better wrestling Announcer than Gorilla Monsoon. And as for Andre The
Giant, words can never describe someone who was definitely "The Eighth
Wonder of the World"!

Author EasyRider321 ( ago)
Nice jab by Andre, wow! Very coordinated for a big guy! :)

Author stipe9401 ( ago)
Victor Jovica was smart businessman investing in Carlos Colon and they drew
huge from late 70s to Bruiser Brodys death in 1988. Gino Marella also owned
part in WWWF then sold it to Junior. Some people think that he was
shareholder for NY italian mafia that Irish Vince had to pay.

Author jblcn1042 ( ago)
this match was funny as fuck. Gorilla got owned hard but he still got some
good shots in. I can't believe how huge Gorilla was, though.

Author Alex Batey ( ago)
It was from a VHS. The promotion was World Wrestling Council which Monsoon
owned a piece of.

Author Jessyleppert ( ago)

Author peterp21 ( ago)
When did Gorilla start being a non-wrestling personality? I ask because I
was watching a WWWF show from the On Demand channel, and Tor Kamata
challenges Backlund to a Death Match, and during the telecast, Monsoon
appears at the announcer booth (off screen), saying that he just spoke with
WWWF management and that they told Gorilla to relay the message that the
Death Match was approved and would happen at some future event. This would
have been 1979-80, I think.

Author Jessyleppert ( ago)
Red Barry.

Author SylentEcho ( ago)
Haha Lord Alfred Hayes on commentary is having a hard time not laughing.
This match was great! Thanks uploader.

Author lastwolflord ( ago)
pretty cool.

Author Stephen Justice ( ago)
What a great match! Thanks for posting!

Author Jessyleppert ( ago)
What does that have to do with Monsoon being a Heel?

Author RayNDeere ( ago)
I believe this is from the Capitol Sports promotion in Puerto Rico, which
Gorilla had a piece of ownership in during the 1970s. Capitol later became
the World Wrestling Council (WWC) with Carlos Colon handling booking chores.
