Oscar hasn't competed much in 2019, so if he's in his top form, I've not had the opportunity to watch his play of late, and perhaps while he's a little under the radar for me. Perhaps you're right...

Yup, Mike, nine of our top ten are the same, and there's not much difference in quality from 4 to 10 as I see it, so the difference in order is not critical in that range. I've watched them all...

Sossei's countless Joss titles and rock solid track record against all of Shaw, Dechaine, and Van Boening over the years are my reason. He also has two different third place finishes in the Derby...

Filler, JL Chang and Wu are the only ones.

It's just marketing, of course, and I'll respect the right of the producers and promoters to call it this. No doubt, they are piggy backing the billing of the Strickland vs Reyes match of 1999 with...
