    • Yep! I was just about to say the same thing about this card. Frank Martin has the goods.

  • Now this is the standard of Showtime boxing!! Great card! Can’t figure out all of these other nondescript PPV cards these days??

  • I still wonder why Brandon doesn’t walk out to Mariah Carey’s “Heartbreaker”. With so much going on in the world today, this seems like a no brainer
