  • Pugilistic Idealism

    This episode was inspiring. The 2 latino boxers showed exactly why so many latinos excel in boxing. They have tremendous heart and will never give up. Norberto represents all that men should aspire to. He lives to provide for his family and represent to them what it means to be a good man and a brave latino.

    Despite the producers of the show setting up Rudy Cisneros to seem out-of-shape and over-eating, Cisneros was equally brave and impressive in the ring.

    Sugar Ray Leonard continues to impress as a gentle, sophisticated man who genuinely admires and cares for these aspiring boxers.

  • This fight was awesome!

    In this episode, Bravo fought Rudy. Rudy is a bigger fighter, and he had to lose some weight in order to meet the weight qualifications.

    When the fighting started, I thought Rudy was going to win because he had a size advantage, but then the tables turned, and Bravo let it be known that he has a dangerous uppercut.

    For the entire five rounds, these boxers didn't let up. They continued to punish each other with devestating punches. In my opinion, this was one of the best fights in The Contender history. It was action packed and both fighters had so much heart and determination to win. Bravo won by split decision, and in the end, he was the one I was rooting for.moreless
  • Great way to start

    Moving this show to ESPN was a good move. Now straight to what happened in the two hours. The show won't change much it's boxing, but you have to love they way they do it. I think they brought in a good pool of talent this year. The one thing that throws me of is K 9. That guy looks way to big to be only 150 pounds. The fights are a good five rounds but we only get to see about two of them (I mean time wise with all that's cut out) Bot of the first two fights were good but I was confused with the second. How a judge gave the yellow team fighter the fight was beyond me but the again we don't get to see the whole thing. I don't have my pick to win yet but I will soonmoreless
  • Season 2 premiere

    I think moving to ESPN and dropping \\\\\\\"sly\\\\\\\" has made this show a little better. I like the new twists as well. Letting the winner choose when and maybe who their next fight will be is a good idea. I did like a couple of the contests they held last season though.

    I do wish they had time to show the entire fights. I cant get my own perception when I can only see highlights from each round. And whats up with the sound effects?moreless
