  • Ray Austin is still fighting? I thought he retired after Wlad knocked him out many years ago!

  • Holy smokes! What has Ray Austin been up in his inactivity? (oxymoron, I know) He was lean and mean back in the day. I gotta hand it to Rydell Booker for keeping at it against all odds. Some might call this fight a tragic disgrace, and they wouldn’t be wrong. I prefer to think of it is two brave warriors who can never say die!

    • Booker was once a Cruiserweight, and now weighs 277. And Austin @290? Booker is usually pretty durable, so this could go ten (assuming it’s scheduled for ten). Can’t imagine what the later rounds of this might look like. I doubt they’re doing this for the love of the sport at this point. Feels like a poor man’s version of these exhibitions involving retired boxers that we’ve been seeing lately, but whatever pays the bills. Wish them both the best.

  • Please we don’t need a picture of 290 pound Ray Austin. Are you trying to chase fans away? These 2 Palookas are the main event. Good Luck.

  • Funny thing is Austin could probably challenge for the title with the cream puffs in the division these days

  • Two finely tuned athletes in the main who obviously trained at McDonalds, they definitely deserve your hard earned dollar, War Mickey?

  • Ray’s gotta be 50, good luck to him/be as safe as ya can! 567 pounds combined, wow! Meanwhile I’d be there.

  • How can the state let this happen, a 50 year old vs 41 year old headlining… embarrassing

  • Don’t judge these two just yet. Dad bods are obviously in season. Tyson Fury is a badass. Andy Ruiz was awesome when he was fat. He lost weight and now he sucks. Lets see what these guys can do.

  • Who wants to see 2 “has beens” in the ring. Wasn’t he Teamcannon, Booker? I saw him fight many many many years ago. Didn’t he do time in jail also?

  • Just checking into this one, but it was scheduled for last night. I don’t see results from this card listed anywhere. Any ideas who won?
