Well, this RFT
scribe was a little preoccupied eating Boston lobstahs and playing Wii on New Year's Eve, and episode four of "The Contender"
just kinda...came and went.
You'll be either thrilled or bewildered to know that despite our town's injured Ryan Coyne
going balls to the walls and calling out a rival
in episode number-three, the gold team passed over Coyne
on New Year's and instead made a match between Deon Elam
and Richard Gringas
from the blue team. (Who said boxers aren't boxes of rocks.)
You can watch all of episode four, sans commercials, here
Last week, Coyne got his stitches removed and plowed back into the ring.
Though gold's coach Tommy Brooks
thought his guy Hino Ehikhamenor
should call out Coyne ("The boy (Coyne) has no defense," said Brooks), Coyne squeaked by yet again
Instead, the blue team's big boy, Darnell Wilson
, got the match-up. Dude tipped the scales by ten pounds at the weigh-in! Not pretty. (You can watch all of episode five here
The sixth show in the series airs at 9 p.m. tonight. Gold team is still in charge of setting the fights.
Will Ryan Coyne finally get it? Check back tomorrow to find out.
