Special Thursday Night Fights On Setpember 1 featuring contender stars!
Reliable sources have informed Boxingtalk.com that ESPN will pick up The Contender's second season, however, before season two begins, Boxingtalk can also be the first to inform you that a special broadcast of Thursday Night Fights will take place on September 1. The card, which it appears will take place in Las Vegas, Nevada, will be littered with contender stars. The televised seven round bouts are looking like Alfonso Gomez-Peter Manfredo III and Ishe Smith-Jesse Brinkley. At first the Contender brass were looking to stage a Mora-Manfredo rematch with Gomez taking on Jeff Fraza, but for reasons unbeknownst to us, Mora, the contender champion, has been removed from the card.
