The Contender

Congratulations to Sakio Bika, winner of the third season of The Contender. In what turned out to be the best fight I've seen this year (Sugar Ray agreed), Bika TKO'd Jaidon "The Don" Codrington in the eighth round of a scheduled ten. Each of the fighters knocked the other down in the first round. But they each got back up and made it through the rest of the round. The rest of the fight see-sawed back and forth, each fighter landing punches hard enough to knock out 90% of the other boxers in the sport. By the eighth round, Bika finally delivered enough cumulative punishment for the referee to stop the fight. It was an amazing fight... it was what boxing is all about.
