The weigh-in for Justin Trudeau's boxing match with Tory Senator Patrick Brazeau got a little bit wild on Wednesday night.

After the weigh-in, which featured Brazeau disrobing into a Speedo, the two men engaged in some trash talking -- first over cuts in the budget to Katimavik, a youth program started by Trudeau's famous father, then over the policies of said father and then over matters of endowment.
"I'm here to beat him with my mind, my heart and a lot of length," Trudeau said, referring to his reach advantage over Brazeau. The Senator's response made the crowd go crazy.
