I know you said you were 'playing' but I've been asked this question many times:
It was FULLY Sanctioned--ISCF and the GA State Boxing Commiss traveled with us. Most of the judges and refs were former or currently working with UFC/WEC and very well known in their field and their states.
There were many ammy fights, one exhibition bout and 3 pro bouts.
All the fighters had to complete even MORE extensive Med work than most states.
Extremely Polished event! thx for saying it looks awesome--it was incredible! ~m

Director of the Georgia Athletic Commission Andy Foster did a great job.  This was one of the most professional events I have ever been a part of and was run with military precision!

xakx - Well done James!


Thank you!  This was a true collaboration.  Just on the production side there was Rick, and Aaron, Razak, the editor Chris Kronus.  Music by Lewis Richards.  And that doesn't even include Monica and all the people who helped on her end, the military and the fighters.

 by military percision he means that we all had to do a 3 hours walk through the night before and address the comanding col. of the base on a PA mic in front of everyone one by one, explaining and asking for permission to carry our our role during the event.  I said sir 12 times in 2 mins while explaining I was there to do the post fight interviews and film with rick and james.  I remember Rick being pretty nervous when asking/explaining that he would be filming the event.  And then James calling the Col. dude and gettign thrown in the military prison lol jk
