The fans of the show were wondering for sometime after the fourth season, whether the show will be back or not. But the announcement came when the fans left all the hope, and that the fifth season is going to happen after nine years of a gap! Epix network decided to revive the show, so they renewed the show for the fifth season.

No, these aren’t “name” fighters, looking to re-strike the fire. Shane Mosley is on the show, but it is Shane Mosley Jr, who holds a 10-2 record and at 27 will have to have a helluva second half of his career to get to the Hall of Fame level his dad did. That said, I hear on the grapevine he did dad proud and showed solid pugilism skills over the span of shooting. Then, you have guys like 17-2 Brandon Adams making a leap in weight and faith; he’s been a 154 pounder, but the lure of a Mark Burnett production and this grand stage brought him into the re-boot fold.
