Not yet, but I heard from the Sports Guy that it seems Stallone thinks he's an actual fighter when they show him sparring. Hey, Sly, if you're a boxer, Catherine Zeta-Jones knows every feature of my cell phone. :lol:

The show is on now (NBC). It's pretty good, not just sport wise but, entertainment wise. Sly does think he knows boxing but, with all the studying of the game he's done, he knows enough to make it believable.

The fight at the end of the show alone is worth me watching it. The first 3 fights were good, hopefully I'll get to see a KO or TKO soon.

That's is my only disappointment with the show. I don't think anyone is going to get KO'ed. Other then that the fights are not bad.

LOL Marc...
I think as much as Sly has contributed to boxing with the Rocky series, I won't hold it against him

Ahmed got a little to serious sparring with Sugar Ray. Then talked ish about him. Ishe finally called out Ahmed after "ducking" him last week. Ishe won the decision. Ahmed is out, said the two would fight again.

Wow, they brought back Manfredo, and I guess Najai was the one who took his own life b/c the show was dedicated to his memory. Wow.

Looks like the next fight could get rough, w/it everyone begging for it to be stopped.

I laughed out loud watching Sly talk to Manfredo about how to become a better boxer.
