  • Josh was a bum in the Catterall Fight and Teo my boy has alot to prove.Should be a great fight with my prediction of a TKO/KO round 10 to 12!
    Wont disappoint! Enjoy my Boy!!
    Go Teo GO!

  • Pretty good fight. If the guy who beat loma showed up this could be a great fight but if the delusional mental trouble teo shows up than this is a boring one sided stoppage or blowout on the score cards type of fight.
