Even stranger than that, the fight was between two most unlikely combatants.

The rift between Joe Kapp and Angelo Mosca, two former Canadian Football League greats, goes back to the 1963 championship game in which a controversial hit by Mosca on one of Kapp's teammates knocked him out of the game.

"It was the most bizarre thing that's happened to me in 31 years in the game," comedian Ron James, who was emceeing the event, told the CBC.
