The feud: “Postal” director Uwe Boll vs. “Transformers” director Michael Bay

The accusation: Self-promoting machine Boll challenged Bay to a round of fisticuffs last month to clear up who is the better director.

The back story: After an online petition to send Boll to directors jail launched earlier this year, Boll responded by mouthing off on Michael Bay and Eli Roth for making bad movies. Bay responded on his website’s official message boards by calling Boll an “obviously sad being.” Shortly after, Boll challenged him to a duel.

The trash talking: “With the money [Bay] has for his movies, he sucks big time. And I think it’s time to meet in the ring. Michael, in between your pool parties in L.A. or your casting sessions with strippers, you should start training now. You look good, you look thin…. I think you’re a fit guy…. So let’s meet in the ring in September or October. Pay-per-view. Mandalay, Las Vegas. Twelve rounds of round of boxing…. We’ll clear it up who is not only the better director, but who is able to fight more for what he wants…. Boll against Bay. It’s on.”
