The Contender
After watching the rematches tonight, I'm MUCH less enthused about the new season of The Contender on ESPN. It was painfully obvious the game was rigged, particularly in the last 2 bouts. Anthony Bonsante clearly defeated Jesse Brinkley, yet the judges ruled Brinkley had won unanimously. In the championship rematch, a much better trained and prepared Peter Manfredo Jr. took Sergio Mora apart, yet Mora was the beneficiary of a corrupt split decision. Are these bouts pre-decided by the producers? I hope they can find a way to make this right, as I'd looked forward to the second season with MUCH excitement prior to tonight.
