In today's edition of "News That Makes You Wish You Lived In Australia," a billionaire and a media kingpin decided to settle a personal dispute in the most macho way possible: a bare-fisted brawl on the streets of Sydney. And yes, there is video.

According to NineMSN, the two men were fighting over a Nine Network News TV truck parked near Packer's home. Gyngell is the CEO of Nine Network News, and Packer apparently sent him an irate text telling him to move the truck.
