The Contender 2007
12 January 2007 | by See all my reviews

I have enjoyed watching the Contender for the past 2 seasons and expect a third season, Could you please inform me of when can we expect the third season to begin. Everyone in my neighborhood and surrounding areas keep updated on the Contender status. When it comes on around our neighborhood everyone makes sure that they take care of what needs to be taken care of for that day so we are home in time for the Contender. Everyone has their own fighter. It is fun to keep up with the Contender as well as watching the training/fighting events. I would greatly appreciate if anyone related to the show/series email me with the dates of when I can expect the third season of Contender. Thank you.
