LAUREL, MS (WDAM) -

It is the most well known battle of the year...The Blood Bowl Bash. 

That's right! The annual WDAM and United Blood Services Blood Bowl is just around the corner, and things are heating up between the Hattiesburg and Laurel mayors. 

"I will be donating blood at 7 a.m.," said Laurel Mayor Johnny Magee. "I realize Johnny DuPree can't donate because he is too old, so if you want to donate for him, come on down to Laurel." 

Hattiesburg Mayor Johnny DuPree has seen the video, and plans to release his rebuttal to the zinger on Friday. 

The bash starts on July 28 in Hattiesburg at C-spire and in Laurel at the Cameron Center. 

Other locations include Collins at First Baptist Church Collins, Columbia at the Columbia Police Department, Waynesboro at the Wayne County Library, and Wiggins at C-spire on July 30.
