Friday Night Fights--Pablo Popsicle Style!!

For tonight's Friday Night Fights, we're proud to bring you the first and most important comic featuring the real-world heavyweight champion vs. a comic book hero...
No, not that one!! That one was merely copying this classic!

It's 1964, and world champion Sonny Liston is training for a title bought with Cuban boxer Pablo Popsicle!

Unfortunately, Pablo accidentally eats an anti-gravity lollipop, and isn't available for the bout!

Now, this is a bad thing, because:

Well, our hero can't let a counter-revolution against Castro go unfunded!

And so...

[SPOILER ALERT: That's just Herbie in a fake mustache, posing as Popsicle!


Spacebooger can't wait to dig out his old Buster Douglas vs. Jughead comic books!!

Victory in the sport of kings is from Herbie #1 (1964) by Richard Hughes (writing as Shane O'Shea) and Ogden Whitney

Now is the time for you to go and vote for my fight. Why? Look, I don't want to make Herbie angry--do YOU? So go vote!!

Poor Sonny, he never stood a... wait, is the leader of the Cuban underground called 'One Banana'?
