Going to church every Sunday was...Read On

With the next PPV just around the corner, 2 top contenders bid their claim on the F-X Throne

2nd of December - Season 1 Solo Magubane sighed as he looked at his watch, the minutes ticking away as he waited outside the clothing shop.

13th of November – Season 1 The One Kilometer Derby: that was what Glen had called it last week, Jim remembered.
