Default The Contender

Anyone else watch this?

Sergio Mora is a good fighter, and i like the "epic" way they portray the fights.

Yes i wacthed this show Sergio is the best "fighter" on the show i think manfredo is a better boxer. The contender is not like real boxing were the boxer get 3 months to train in the contender they only get 4 days to train for a fight this is why i thonk the show was more desinged for a tough fighter like sergio.

Honestly, I really liked the show.. For someone who has only ever watched boxing and never actually taken part I thought it was interesting to see the pre fight rituals and how much it means to these guys...

Re the finale (which was crap by the way) for some reason Manfredo just fought a really weird game plan.. Leaning in all the time instead of trying to box Mora..

None of these guys are really 'Contenders' anyway though and some of the boxing on display was pretty poor...

I hope they bring the series back for another year but I hope they make quite a few changes to the format also.. Less family fluff and more fighting/training & analysis...

They are in talk about brining back the conetender was a great show finaly a little flavor to the sceen of boxing from a short round display.
The Nbc and sly are in consolt about for next season right now they have a poll out about who a remtach should be between fighter alfonso gomez or manfredo jr.
Also recent replys to the next conetder for upcoming season espn has recently had intrest in sponsering the show! so keep and eye open i think this is just going to get better!

Ishe Lost
Najai - Died
Reid - Lost
Ahmed - Lost
Juan - Pulled out

not causing any tension .. but i reckon its like Rubin Carter case of judging in boxing especially in Contender!!
