ali says:

I hope Wilder & Jennings will be apart of it but I doubt it.

Radam G says:

They will never be a part of it. Holla!

the Roast says:

Hey Radam or anyone, what ever happened to Monk Foreman? Is he fighting? I have heard zip, zero, zilcho.

Bernie Campbell says:

Im sure alot of politics are going into this! Travis Walker and Kauffman? How bout Julius Long against Wilder! Dominick Guinn vs Jennings? Dominick looked good against contendor Boytsov! Robert Hawkins? Ding A Ling Man- Friscoe almost took out Gerber! Chauncy Friggun Welliver! Dudes got a better record than either Klitschko! Jason Estrada former olympian will give them all hell! Cmon if you guys think that the American scene consist only of Jennings, Wilder, and Mitchell whose combined amatuer record amounts to squat! You gotta find another hero!

Radam G says:

The Monk is still fighting muthazoombies and muthasuckas on life machines. He and Wilder will probably fight one another by 2020 -- the next time the world is suppose to end, according the forecast of the usual religious nutcases. Holla!

ali says:

Bernie Campbell I've never heard of alot of those guys. Guinn and Walker I've seen fight but I will go check out the other guys on YouTube .
