Liberal MP Justin Trudeau and Conservative Senator Patrick Brazeau took the fight to each other Saturday night in a different sort of political arena.
Trudeau defeated Brazeau in the third round, with the referee stopping the fight after the 6-foot-2 Montrealer backed his opponent into a corner with a series of blows to his head and body.
The charity boxing match was held at an Ottawa hotel as part of an event to raise money for cancer research. The sold-out evening, with a half-dozen other fights on the undercard and a crowd that included several federal cabinet ministers, took in $230,000 for the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation.
As part of their bet, Brazeau now has to cut his long, pony-tailed hair in the House of Commons foyer and wear a shirt with a Liberal logo for a week.
