Finally the number one p4p in the world, the Latin Snake, is in negociations for a possible showdown that would be a megafight against the strong prime Forrest in a very meaningfull fight!:laugh:

How good could that be?

What's with the new trend of putting these "Contender" stars against real champions? I'd like the idea if they were real Contenders, but they aren't. They all suck. SORRY if you are a fan of the show, but it's my opinion that they should pick real contenders for the show, and maybe some more worthy boxers should get the real recognition they deserve. Like Joshua Clottey.

The only one earning a contender stat is Alfonso Gomez, still I dont think he did enough to get a fight with Cotto..too bad for him anyways

Simple fact is, they put some nobodies in the show to try to make the winner a contender.. I didnt see it happening so far

Exactly! They should put actual contenders at the show and try to get them a title shot. That makes more sense.

The show would even flop then. Contenders are supposed to fight atleast 10 rounds not 5. I still say you won't find the best out of the bunch if you are only fighting 5 rounds. A fight can go anywhere after 5.

Yeah, exactly. Make then 10 rounders with actual contenders fighting for actual title eliminators and higher rankings. I never understood the point of 5 or 7 rounders. It goes against boxing. I'm in no way a fan of the show.

Moras best weapon is speed.

Now let us think how has Forrest done against really fast boxers in the past :rolleyes:

If Mosley could not give Forrest problems with his speed no way Mora will, now if Mora was a big power puncher like Mayorga i would maby say he had a chance, but mora has like what 5 kos? This will be a easy fight for Forrest.

I think they made them fight 5 rounds to make it more entertaining because fighters would go at it straight from the opening bell. I didn't like the way they used to cut fights and show highlights with an "epic" music lol. But still I liked the 1st season cause it was nice to see a reality show about boxing. That being said, these guys can't compete with worldclass fighters. Mora and Gomez will both get starched!

Mora is going to get smashed. I hope this ain't PPV. But if it is, I'm still getting it. Just to still him get smashed
The fight still is in negociations, wich mean Forrest still can turn around and take on a worthier opponent than Mora.. Lets hope the fight falls apart, I'd Rather see Forrest against Winky Wright - but that would be too much to ask
