Pretty good show aside from the highly edited fight. The general audience might not be too crazy about 5 rounds of 154 pounders otherwise so it's understandable. It would be cool to be able to watch the entire fights online.
The backgrounds were well presented and looks like they got some real talent for the show. Surprising and dramatic fight.
I just saw it for the first time tonight. It's a pretty solid show. Substantially better than TNGC. I hope it gets enough rating sto stay on the air.
So Manfredo Junior lost in the first episode to Gomez? Man, what an upset..Manfredso had to be a favorite going in. What happened, was he beaten up pretty soundly? Did he pick Gomez or did Gomez pick him?
And now Johnathon Reid loses to Brinkley. Props to brinkley for stepping up and choosing him to fight.
This is a pretty interesting show...i'll watch it next week for sure.
Way better than "The Next Great Champ". The fights are still too chopped up for my taste, but at least you have a decent idea of what's going on. The quality of the fighters is much better too. I could've beat those chumps on NGC, and I'm nobody.
That Ishe dude is a punk, I bet/hope that he's the first from the West to get beat.
"Crap!!! I had company over while I was watching The Contender and felt like a fool when I predicted an easy KO for Manfredo."
lol...man how could you have known!!!
"Ishe Smith is supposedly the best guy on the team, yet he's hesitant to step up and pick someone to fight?"
The funny thing is that you're gonna have to fight eventually anyways...so why not take advantage when you have a choice of everyone and when actulaly have the choice as opposed to be the chosen one? I think their is a pyschological edge in being able to choose who you fight.
If I remember correctly, didn't Ishe get a gift decision vs Randall Bailey?
Anyways, time to go start pounding back a whole lotta Molsons.
Yeah honestly I hope ishe gets a good shit kicking. Like honestly wtf. He calls out some dude and says he will wip his ass but then when he has the chance to do somthing about it he bitches out. After that his "teammate" calls somone out and ishe hopes that he gets knocked out in the fight. Like what the fuck that punk ass bitch needs to get ktfo naw mean.
