anyone here see the contender rematch? It was pretty good, Gomez was boxing well, against perez. In my opinion Bonsante was robbed against Brinkley, the judges gave a bull**** decision to brinkley, bonsante was the one who was in control of the fight. Then, mora best manfredo, that was alo a bull**** decison, because manfredo was in control for most of the fight, he controlled rounds 1-4, mora was doing good in the 5th. the 6th round was even, 7th was manfredo, and the 8th was even. so, u tell me how the judges could think that mora won. what do u think?

The Contender judges are a bunch of bull ****. They judje the way the crowd wants them, the way money wants them. I say that Manfredo won against Mora hands down. Manfredo fought better, smarter, and dealt more damage than Mora did. For good ness sake he wobbled the guys in I think the third round, he took moras punches, and answered with hard hitting fists. I say the contender should stop making boxing as some holly wood show and make it into a real boxing with real judge who aren't ******* and bias.

It's such a disgrace to take that win away from Manfredo... he worked his balls off with Freddie Roach for months to get that win... which he did, and was robbed of it.

besides manfredo is a true contender, mora, isn't a contender he's a show off, with his guick fist and his switching from orthodox to southpaw.

god that **** pissed me off. Not only did all my football teams lose this weekend, manfredo and bonsante got freakin robbed. I don't see why they couldn't have gotten any decent judges for that. Bonsante owned brinkley the entire time and I could only see Mora maaaaaaaaybe taking 3 rounds against manfredo, which would have been awful judging in itself. Well at least there's family guy on now to make me feel better.

I love the contender. It was a great show.

From being ringside I thought Mora took it easy. But after I went home and watched the tape I completely changed my mind. Manfredo did deserve the win but it was closer than people are saying that it was. And when a fight is that close you cant call it a robbery.
Punchstats can lie sometime. 180-133 Manfredo.

I feel sorry for Bosante and his family what does a guy have to do?
He won each round and lost unanimously, what the f$#k.
As for Mora vs. Manfredo I think that peter won. But he did let Mora back into the fight. He was hurt in the late rounds and became cautious.
Mora was the champ in his hometown, if you cut him in round 1 take his ass out of there. A true contender would have forced a stoppage and 8 rounds laterwe found out that PM did not focus on beating SM but on simply winning the majority of rounds. I still know PM won,just that he is the one to blame on the decision.

i have to disagree with you guys on this one. it was a close fight. i had sergio winning 5 rounds to 3. peter started to fade after round 4. he didnt do anything past round 4. to call it a robbery is bull****.

The Mora Manfredo fight sucked. I hardly saw any clean punches landed by either of them.

i haven't really followed the contender much.. but from the event i saw tonight, this program is only hurting the sport of professional boxing, especially with the horrible judging.. and of course, espn runs the show 3 times over. I understand it's to promote the new season, but of course, the general sportsfan will look at this and say, "See, this is why i don't watch boxing". Thanks alot Contender for setting the sport back once again.
absolutely, jessie had nothing, and manfredo made some changes to make the fight his. the judging is another subject and is why there needs to be accountability for their actions

Just wait till mora gets put up against some one like Bernard hopkins then he will have somthing to wrorry about :D

I also think that the judges might have decided like that as a crowd puller so there is another rematch
