Michael Buffer coming for Kentucky vs Kansas clash

Mark Zerof-USA TODAY Sports

World-renowned boxing announcer Michael Buffer will be paying another special visit to Lexington this weekend.

Back in October, Buffer took part in UK's Big Blue Madness, where he mimicked his famous boxing call with a, "Let’s get ready to roundball," for the special occasion. For that, Kentucky paid Buffer a $15,000 appearance fee, plus lodging and local ground transportation, per SEC Country.

But that was merely a glorified scrimmage and introduction of this year's team. Now, Buffer is coming to call a real heavyweight bout when No. 4 Kentucky hosts No. 1 Kansas this Saturday, as if this game needed any more hype surrounding it.
