Stevie needs to hang 'em up bad.

Steve Forbes as the main event? I figured at this point in his career he would just be training wheels for prospects.

Forbes is so shot he boxes in MX, if Paez can't beat him he needs 2 retire...

This matchup sounds like off tv undercard bout. Not sure if it is main event worthy.
