Friday Night Fights is done ... how can this be??!! We'll never again hear Teddy talk about puttin' water in the basement, or tell us who's the naturally bigger guy, or frankly admit the fight we're watching is a blatant mismatch perpetrated by a careful promoter and a weak commission. Ahh Teddy, we'll miss ya.
EDIT: Who knew ol' Joe and Teddy are sticking around for the new PBC on ESPN?! Oh, everybody did? I see. Ignore most of the previous paragraph.
Two weeks left in Season 26! Time to make a move folks, or uksb is going to walk away with this thing.
Note the early start time Friday for the Povetkin/Perez fight.
Check the standings, and see how many doubles and triples you have left, here.
