Bay denies agreeing to box Boll

Which is worse: Postal or Pearl Harbour?

Uwe Boll has claimed Michael Bay agreed to finish their argument once and for all with a boxing match - but according to Bay, the two men have never even spoken.

The German film maker appeared in a video revealing that the Transformers director had "agreed to it", and promised buying tickets to Postal was the only way to see it.

"I'm very happy to say the fight is on," said Uwe Boll. "Boll versus Bay; it's a rumble in the jungle two.

"He agreed to do it, I'm very proud of it. So if you want to be live there you need ten tickets from Postal.

"Michael Bay: start training. I think you will go down, to be honest. I think round three or round four you will go down in history, not only for the worst war movie ever, Pearl Harbour, no, also for the worst boxer in the ring against Uwe Boll ever," added the Raging Boll.

However, the moderator of the official Michael Bay forum shot down the claims, saying they were "false" and that "Michael has never spoken to [Boll]".

"Just spoke to Mike, and it's false. This guy is really creepy, he's creeping me out," said "nelson", the administrator on the forum.

"BTW, Michael has never spoken to him and won't speak to him. Mike has a movie to deliver for June 2009, unlike this idiot.

"Boll doesn't deserve press for his lame movie, so this is the last we talk about him in these forums. This press stunt will tank," added "nelson".

The argument began after Michael Bay said Boll was a "sad being" who was "screaming because he is not being heard". Uwe Boll responded by claiming Bay made rubbish films that cost a lot and would he like to step into the ring to sort it all out.

Bay promptly called Boll a "f***ing idiot" and a "dumb chump trying to get fame when he has none".

And here we are.

Uwe Boll has famously fought critics before, decking anyone silly enough to face him in a boxing ring. He previously promised to include clips of these bouts in Postal.
