[QUOTE=TOBYLEE1;13288037]I disagree. If Lucas or Garcia has a very impressive fight it will attract fans especially if they win, fight each other and it turns out to be a good fight. A couple of things have to happen but there…Comment by BrushMyHair! on 04-24-2013
I agree 100% with Angel Garcia. The winner of this tournament should get the right to fight and lose to Adrien Broner.Post a Comment/View More User Comments (45)
