'SNL' flashback: Amy Poehler's tough-talking Tonya Harding

by Saturday Night Live 2:07 mins

Twenty years ago on January 6, 2014, figure skater Nancy Kerrigan was attacked with a lead pipe to the knee. The incident set off one of the most enduring scandals in sports and signaled the messy demise of her rival Tonya Harding, implicated as a co-mastermind in the attack. In 2002 Harding tried for a comeback as a boxer, participating in a celebrity match against Paula Jones. The stunt didn't help Harding's public image, and inspired this hilarious Amy Poehler impersonation on "SNL." Asked by Tina Fey how she trained for the fight, Poehler-as-Harding reveals, "I ate a lot of chickens. I fought some Mexican girls in a parking lot. And I threw a keg through my boyfriend's window. Wooo!"
