I'm surprised not much has been said about the insanely entertaining bout held on Sunday night on BOUNCE, ....which featured non-stop buckwild bantamweight action in a championship fight between Rau'Shee Warren vs Payano, ( Warren Lost a close one) and an awesome undercard that featured two lightmiddle weight eliminators bouts which were part of a tournament,... Those guys fought to the last breath as if the prize was a weekend with Rhianna, a fight with F. Mayweather, .....and a bag of chips. Crazy action for a Sunday night. Also Haymon has just announced a mutli-million dollar agreement with FOX to put on 21 more dates beginning in September ( as luck would have september is my birthday month and now I can't weight to become a year older, .....thanks Al Haymon) The twitter-verse, Instagram, and Facebook is lighting up and going wild with excitement, Personally l'll take as much free boxing as I can get. Whomever the source ....... Whoooo hoooo!!!!! Can't get enough of those fisticuffs. ...Bring it on!!!!

He is putting boxing on again on Tuesday nights. Make some good matches and I will watch. Put on mismatches and I wont. Do any of you guys remember Tuesday night fights on USA? I think it ran for over 20 years.A lot of crossroad and interesting matchups were presented.

Good for TSAH for continuing to provide us with fights, just step them up a bit more and I will carry more excitement for them.

B-Sug, I am surprised as well!! Johnson vs. Cota was a damn good fight, those guys were slinging bombs the entire fight. I was hesitant about boxing Bounce TV , but that card was solid
