In the red corner, weighing in at…

Having dropped the best part of a hundred pounds, 34-year-old Boston man Chris “Tiger” Stockbridge is ready to take on the world.

But before he takes on the world he wants to take on Jared, the formerly fat guy from the Subway ads.

Stockbridge wants Jared to put the gloves on and step into the ring on May 11 for a one-minute charity bout to raise money for the annual Dorchester Day parade.

A spokesman for Subway said, “Jared’s not much of a fighter. He’s too likable a person to fight.”

He’s also pretty bloody annoying if you ask me, which is why I for one was looking forward to this battle of the former heavyweights.
