Fight Club Guys Cry Uncle, Say Media Spotlight Too Hot
Salt Lake Tribune 26May00 D3
Associated Press

PROVO, UTAH -- Saying the publicity and media hype had made their lives too difficult, the founders of the Provo Fight Club announced yesterday that they have ended the secret, late-night boxing matches based on the Brad Pitt movie "Fight Club." They also acknowledged that an earlier announcement that they had stopped was a ruse to deflect attention from them.

The latest attention came after a Salt Lake City television station aired a video clip of two women fighting in what BYU claims is BYU approved housing. The clip led BYU to announce that it will review its policies for approved housing. Earlier reports indicated that a number of the anonymous founders of the group were BYU students.

The announcement was made by 22-year-old Todd Bushman outside his Provo duplex. "We don't want to be associated with the Fight Club anymore," he said. "This time it's over for real," Bushman said.
