if BOTH fights end with one punch knockouts...then what?!?...I can see both fights ending very early....not trying to be negative but if any of them land something sweet EARLY on the other dude's chin, it MIGHT be a wrap drizzle…

Its a nice gesture, but it still doesn't seem like that much money to me.
