Frank Martin is the one to watch. He’s up next!
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
Nice card !
this is a good card congrats to showtime
