I could be VERY wrong, but I see Timmay winning this one with that loooonnnnggggg jab of his.I haven't seen either of their fights lately, but I have heard that both have been looking way past their primes.

I think Rizzo is definitely NOT underrated...I agree, ProElite needs to create some new regional blood/talent if they want to continue to do well.
