The Daily Show talks "chicken boxing"

Posted By on Thu, Jun 19, 2014 at 10:33 AM

The Daily Show's Al Madrigal talked to state Sen. Elbert Guillory about his efforts to legitimize "chicken boxing" in Louisiana.

"I'm not a fan of cockfighting," Guillory said, "but I love to go and watch some chicken boxing."

Madrigal also talked to state Sen. J.P. Morrell, who sponsored a bill (which Gov. Bobby Jindal signed into law) to strengthen the state's cockfighting ban. Guillory attempted to add an amendment that would exempt chicken boxing — and add licensing and regulation to the "sport" — from the bill. That amendment failed.

"These are premier athletes," Guillory said. Essentially Madrigal's only reply throughout is, "We're talking about 'chicken boxing,' right?"
