Saw the first one last night. More of the same (but I stand corrected, Sly is not a permanent fixture in this one). They are showing the fights a little more clearly this time from what I could see, and I was glad that the guy who won did so.
Great to have it back

On Friday I watched Episode 2 that I had taped. I hate that they don't let us see the whole fight to make our own decision of what happened. You don't get a sense and showing only parts of the fight that they believe are the best parts just sucks. Slow motion cameras. Panning the audience. Inserting music like it is some big performance ... this drives me nuts.

It just isn't the same without Sly. I like that there are no challenges though. We shall see how things go.

I dont like the fact that there arent any challenges. All they have done to replace that is showing them act all emotional about how big a break this is for them and their families. Thats a large part of each episode now. Its good to hear a little before the fight to see the motivation but too much is just boring.

The panning and orchestra with the fight scenes is understandably to make it more interesting for those who are not really interested in watching boxing. That audience is probably larger than the ours who would like the see the full uninterrupted fight.

OMG! Steve Forbes put on a boxing clinic! That guy is the real deal right there. Anyone else catch the show tonight?

Sure did. I think the other guy put up a valent effort but yes, Steve Forbes was the better of the two boxers. Steve used a whole arsenal of punches but the other guy (Freddie?) should have used at least one uppercut and I think he would have done far better.

Loved that it was a double header. Also glad this year they pulled the prior stunts.
