Sly has announced a new boxing-based reality tv series called The Contender. The show will feature 16 would-be champions fighting for a career in the ring. “I think the finest talent does not rise to the surface.” says Sly.
The Contender will take 16 fighters and put them through a training camp and into a series of bouts with one another. The winner of the final fight will receive $1 million. The Contender will also delve into the lives of the boxers, so viewers can, as Sly puts it, “understand the real grandeur and tragedy and triumphs of this incredible sport.”
