I take it this is a TV show about Boxing or something? If so then Sports would be a better place for this.

x2, wrestling> boxing. Besides, the show concept is lame. Maybe if it was more interesting I would watch it.

The Power

I watched this the other night and I thought it was good. I cant stand any reality tv but this was acceptable.

 

The two guys put up a stonking fight and the one that lost later commited suicide. Shot himself apparently.

What a prick. Leaving his wife and daughter devastated and without an income. confused.gif

 

@ Uzi, UFC bores the life out of me. I go with WWE/ NWO.

Mateo from the Diablos has a cousin on that show if I remember right.

 

Only saw one episode. Good but not good enough to make me remember when and what channel I saw it.

It's marmite, you either love it or ya hate it & because I'm into the whole boxing thing & I know what it's like & what it takes I bloody love it!

 

Also what the f*ck is on, on a Monday at 9 anyways? Some Drama sh*te on ITV, a cheap TV movie on 5, some crap on why we hate religion on 4 & BBC full of it's usual Comedy/Drama BS.

 

I reckon Jesse can take it myself, he has the height, the weight, the speed & the strength!

I agree, although it's on Sunday nights here on the West Coast, I still make a point to catch it. I think Jesse has a good chance, although seeing that guy, who's dad is a Marine, man, he's got heart. He beat that guy's a$$ with a messed up leg!! ace show.

I don't think it was his leg, after the Marine guy's son (forgot his name) got hurt, I heard Sylvester Stalone saying something about his hamstring. I think there are going to be two consecutive episodes tonight.

Your hamsting is in your leg, buddy. But man, that was a nice fight.

 

Edit: Darn, Joey Gilbert lost. He busted his rib in the first round but still fought, wow. Then he splits his head on an accidental head but. That kid's a tough dude. He get's injured too easily though.

I watch it, every week, it got me real interested in boxing!

 

I've always said Alfonso Gomez would win but after seeing both Jesse and the Latin Snake in the quarter finals confused.gif

 

Last episode was great, Jesse came back from 3-1 in rounds to knock Anthony out, a great performance!

 

The semi final looks explosive with Manfredo, Gomez, Sergio and Jesse all in it.

 

I can't wait for the final in Ceasers palace.

I watched the first few episodes but then forgot about it.

 

Too much hollywood glamorized crap and not enough boxing. I'd be more interested if they actually showed the fight instead of putting sound effects in it and switching to the crowd every five seconds.

 

I love boxing, that's when the two fighters get in the ring and actually fight. But not boxing outside the ring. Boxing is a corrupt sport. And that's the only good thing about this program is that it's fair and square.

 

I'll watch the final at Ceasers Palace, isn't that this month?

I love this show despite the fact I don't really like boxing. Though like someone said. I wish they'd show the whole match and not just highlights.

 

ITV2 are now showing 2 shows in a row over here. Probably trying to catch back up and show the final live.

Boxing is one of only a few sports I actually enjoy watching.

 

Alfonso or Sergio to win.

Ahmed did pretty well in the 4th and 5th round, there was a point where I thought he had knocked Alfonso out, but Alfonso came back and wrecked him biggrin.gif

Yeah, Alfonso nearly bugger over backwards.

 

I wanted Ishe to win. Shame about his loss yesterday. Like Sergio said, he beat him-self.

Personally, I don't know how the hell Sergio is still in it. He must be 6'-5" 140 lb. He's too tall and lankey, the other dudes should whack him silly.

 

I'm dissapointed Joey lost, kinda cheaply though, he was winning that fight on a f*cking busted rib, only to loose to an accidental head-butt.

 

I think my money is on Jesse, I guess.

 

A few things messed up:

 

I think Ishe won his fight, but they sided against him, his style and technique were better than the dude that beat him. the judges scoring sucks.

 

Anthony was still standing and they called the fight. Wtf kinda pussy fighting is that? That's not a knock out, he was still defending his head and throwing weak punches. A man isn't knocked out until he drops to the ground and can't get up in the alloted time. He's a grown man, let him decide if he should quit or not, not have a bastard ring judge stop the fight cuz he's worried. Maybe if Anthony was on drugs or alcohol so his mind was unable to call the fight, but he wasn't, he would've prolly lasted the last 31 seconds on his feet, and since he won three rounds, he would've won that fight.

 

Joey looses cuz another dude head-butts him? That's a violation on Manfredo(that's his name right?) not on Joey. Hell, I'd "accidentally" head-butt everyone and unleash fury on their cut face. It's a tactic apparently. I'd be known as "The Ram" if I were a boxer.

Joey wasn't winning, he was drawing 2-2 with Manfredo going into the final round, Manfredo lunged forward just as joey did and they clashed, It was pathetic really but I'd save Manfredo deserved to win - just.

 

As for Anthony, wtf was that all about, he won the first 3 rounds and then he got knocked out int he last, he was still standing, he shoulda just moved around, but Jesse pinned him down on the ropes and pummeled him.

 

I don't like Sergio at all, he keeps on going on about his momma and poverty, It is kinda getting old.

 

I'd want Manfredo to win, either him or Alfonso Gomez.

My point is that you can't call the match when a dude is still standing, that's wussy. Well, I don't know much about the sport, however, and have never boxed myself.

 

I second that thought on Sergio.

 

I'm rooting for Manfredo or Gomez too.

The Contender has been much better than I thought it would be.

 

Good behind the scenes drama and some really good fights.Really good.

 

The 2 fighters I knew of at the beginning were Manfredo and Gomez.We'll see how the final matchups go but i think those are your finalists right there.I have been very impressed with Gomez.

So,so with Manfredo but he is a good fighter who seems to be settling in..finally.That early loss really messed up his head for abit.

 

As for the topic starters original question,generally,I'll take a UFC match over a boxing match anyday.

However,you make that boxing match between Paq and Morales or something,you get a different story.

Is it just me or is it that the more beaten up Peter Manfredo's face gets, he starts looking more and more like Stan Marsh's dad (in Southpark) when he turned himself into a dolphin?

 

Anyways, watching Manfredo fight, I'm not convinced that Manfredo has enough speed or heart to win this thing. Sergio on the other hand, he's more focused, determined, and hungry. I think Sergio will win unanimously tomorrow.

I can't wwait for the fight tommorow, the last couple ones that I watched were great especially between Manfredo Jr. and that guy he fought earlier in the show.

Good Drama. Good Fights.

 

But I don't think they're contenders for the "real" boxing. But anyways, sad to see Jason Brinkley go, he is power puncher and prooved that at the end of the fight when he busted that guy open.

 

I hope Manfredo Jr. goes home as the Contender Champ. They really both deserve it because they never had to been "picked" back onto the show. Best luck to both of the fighters.
