    The new season of The Contender has started on Versus network. It's on Wednesday's at 10 pm EST. We're 2 or 3 episodes into it thus far (sorry I'm late announcing this on here).

    They are fighting with cruiser weights in this season. There seem to be some pretty talented boxers this season. Not sure how deep that weight class is though in the boxing game. Tony Danza (former pro boxer himself) is hosting. The twist is that it's actually taking place in Thailand or Singapore this season. I can't remember where exactly.

    I don't know if he was ever a pro, but he still trains with amateurs I'm pretty sure.

    I tried to watch this show when it first began(3 years ago?). And I will tune into this one as well but, I just can't stand the machismo that goes on.

    And yes, I fought in the amateur ranks and I still love to put the gloves on. There's nothing better then some beefcake at the gym, talking crap before he gets in the ring, then the bell rings and he knows he's already been defeated. Quick always beats the muscle.

    I just can't get into boxing anymore.

    I feel that the fights are fixed way to often.

    That's the point dude.

    I stopped doing any sports when I started sitting my butt behind a computer 10 years ago.

    I could never be in a boxing match.

    I've only got about 1 and a half minutes to give it my best shot.

    After that, I'm gassed.

    Hahahaha..... fair enough. I'm definitely not calling you out in the fight club. Your lyrics are to sharp. I'll just keep it in the ring.

    I don't even go into Fight Club except to make a joke every once in a while.

    I'm horrible at talking smack...

    Got it HH. SO this year will be between cruiser weights 200 lb'ers? Should be some big shots landed.

    Yea, Felix Cora was the first fight on the show. He seemed to have a lot of in-ring smarts. He neutralized his opponent (who didn't throw much of anything to utilize his reach advantage over Felix.)

    Mush, when did you start boxing? How many years have you trained?

    Started when I was 10 and worked though highschool. Picked it back up about 3 years ago as an avenue to keep me from getting fat. So all together about 12 years.
