    I'm ashamed to admit that I'm excited about this, last year wasn't bad at all and I predicted the winner.

    I'm well up for this, with the heavies your guaranteed a comedy KO somewhere down the line. Who you got, and to be honest it really should boil down to Sprott or Skelton.

    Im gonna check it out and I'm a American. Also will be watching Strikeforce tonight as well. Prize fighter is essentially a contender/tuf kind of show right?

    Nope, a one night, winner takes all (30,000 usually) tournament. 3 x 3 rounds, quarters, semis then final. Audrey Harrison won the last HW one and he now has a title shot, so they attract some good fighters. Always action as only 3 rounds, so fighters can go for broke, it usually a mix of established talent looking to ressurect their career, and hungry novices.

    Nice, heavyweights fighting only 3 rounds? pressures on, sounds like we may see a KO or two.

    Yes, the bookies have got Skelton & Sprott too so I put a cheeky small wager on Hughes and McBride to make it exciting!

    To be honest I forgot about Mcbride, I wonder how many times the commentators will mention the Tyson fight, I reckon 30 times before the first adverts.

    These Prizefighters shows are an excellent idea, great TV. Think Sprott is going to take it tonight

    Yes, I'm already sick of the them mentioning in the build-up of how hes, "the man that conquered Tyson". Everyone knows he conquered himself!

    There is not much skill in this as Skelton and Sprott are well past their best, I'm just watching this for pure excitement. Where else can you see heavies pummeling away relentlessly for 3 rounds?

    Skelton v Sprott, rare that the two favs make the final.

    It is rare. My heart says Skelton, my head says Sprott. Skelton got lucky that the blind ref didn't count his knockdown.

    Sprott has way more in the tank, never got rocked and is faster. He takes it.
