Witcher 3: Wild Hunt - Fists of Fury: Novigrad
#1
During the Fists of Fury: Novigrad fistfighting quest, Geralt encounters several characters with several Easter eggs.

The first person Geralt fights is Georgius "Piledriver" George, a reference to Gorgeous George (real name George Wagner) the former American wrestler and character Gorgeous George, an unlicensed boxer, in the Guy Ritchie film Snatch.

Before the fight with Georgius Georg, Geralt is asked to throw the fight, a possible reference to Gorgeous George's notoriety for cheating during matches. The fight taking place at the Golden Sturgeon, a tavern, may also be in line with Wagner's real life alcoholism late in his life.

Archibald O'Neill's last name is spelled with one "L" on a notice board flyer. O'Neill is a reference to Mickey O'Neil, a character portrayed by actor Brad Pitt in aforementioned film Snatch.

Durden the Tailor, the last fighter, is a reference to Tyler Durden, a main character in the movie Fight Club also portrayed by Brad Pitt.
Before the match Durden gives a comment that is an excerpt of the speech given by Count Adhemar to Williams in the movie A Knights Tell.

"You have been weighed, you have been measured, you have been found wanting. In what world do you think you can defeat me?"

Master Claytop's name and rigging of matches is a reference to Bricktop, a character who also has matches fixed in the film Snatch.
