Joe Kapp Lands a Right to Angelo Mosca’s Jaw
Joe Kapp, 73, a former NFL quarterback with the Minnesota Vikings, and Angelo Mosca, 74, a former CFL defensive lineman and a former professional wrestler under the names of King Kong Mosca and the Mighty Hercules, got into a fist fight at a recent CFL Grey Cup luncheon in Vancouver, Canada.
Kapp and Mosca hold a grudge against each other for a hit Mosca landed on one of Kapp’s teammates 48 years ago. Talk about holding a grudge!
Here is a video of the actual fight as it occurred:
The two septuagenarians have held grudges against each other since the 1963 Grey Cup, which is the CFL’s version of a Canadian Super Bowl. In the 1963 game, Mosca laid out Kapp’s teammate, Willie Fleming, with a controversial hit, knocking Fleming out of the game. Now, nearly 50 years later, the two still do not get along.
You would think two seventy somethings would have gotten all of the fist fighting out of their systems by now, but not these two.
The Grey Cup luncheon, where the fight occurred, had a goal of raising money for retired CFL players, so it is possible that the altercation might not have been entirely spontaneous. After all the incident did reach news outlets all across North America.
Comedian Ron James, the luncheon’s host, insists that the fight was not staged; however, it would be interesting to learn how much money the event raised for its cause.
