    The Contender

    "The Contender" will be the next big reality show that will be aired in prime time on NBC. This show was a creation of Sylvester Stallone along with Mark Burnet creator of "Survivor" .... and hopefully will bring on Rocky 6!

    Although try outs for the program are over unfortunately for those of you who may have been interested, I heard that there was quite a turn out.

    There were fighters from different styles with different levels of experience. Ken Hewski "Pro Kickboxer", Lennox Chance "Amateur kickboxing World Champ", Tarek Rached "Pro Kickboxer and Pro Boxer", Dyer Davis son of "1976 Olympic Gold Medalist" Howard Davis, Tommy "Bee" Bottone, Kevin Moley who once fought for the Middleweight World title at Madison Square Garden against Wilfredo Benitez.... to amateur boxers & kickboxers.

    I'm assuming that this show will indeed peak the average TV viewer's boxing interest!

    The show is scheduled to air on Tuesdays at 8:00 PM EST starting January of 2005.

    Sounds great, but I hope it doesn't suck like Next Action Hero or whatever its called.

    I am looking forward to a Rocky 6 but Stallone has to be in it...

    they'll probably end the series with some apollo rocky thing where stallone fights leonard. that'd be pretty cool, although i hope they'll actually show who won.
