Aparently Sly isn't going to be in it because of Rocky 6 and Sugar Ray will just be hosting on his lonesome.

    I think Sly is back too, he will be promoting the new Rocky film and presenting the contender

    the sad thing about some fighters is that they have very little in life, they are fighting for a better way of living.

    He decided that he had failed one too many times i guess. a sad story, i never want any of them to lose!

    I agree, he was only thinking about himself not how his family will get through life now he is gone.

    najai was a true soldier...i curse all stupid females for his death


    ps/ the true reason for his death was because of his stupid wife, who left him after he lost the fight, and got full custody of his daughter.. when this guy was working 3 f**kin jobs to make his family live. if working 3 jobs wasnt enough to make his family proud then what is. he just took his life after his wife took his his kid away. when i hear this i just wanna nuke every women on the planet.

    I never liked The Contender because of the stupid way they show the fights

    For a boxing fan it is really very annoying to watch these silly edited fights with more footage of women screaming in the audience than the actual fighters in the ring
