Welcome, ladies and gentlemen, to the fight that will determine the heavyweight champion of the continent.
In the end corner is a contender from outside the continental United States. You can tell he is a rude and contemptible man by the content of his hostile comments. However, he claims that he is actually a gentle person with a contemporary attitude. He asserts that the media quotes his words out of context to make him look bad. Judging by his size, I don’t think anyone would dare to contradict him. Physically, he has the contour of a huge body builder. Tonight, he can earn as much as $500,000 under his fight contract. However, these earnings are contingent upon whether he wins the match. Some say that he won’t be contented unless he wins by a knockout.
In the blue corner is the current champion of the contiguous 48 states. He really wants to win the continental title tonight. He says he wants to maintain continuity between the two titles because they are both part of the continuum of world-class titles. The current champion is usually a very friendly person. However, tonight, he is a contemptuous fighter. He says he’s tired of the challenger’s contradictory statements. You can bet that his aggression will be focused on the challenger tonight.
For several months, both men have been in vicious contention for the continental title. Tonight is a continuation of their brutal dispute. So, let the battle begin!
