Hey Rico. This is Enson. If there is anything I can do to help promote b"The fighter" let me know....I'd be more than happy to help.

Enson...Rico...I'm thinking it would be awesome to hype a rematch of Enson vs. Randy at a PSL event a few months after the Hollywood/Tokyo release of David Mamet's movie, "Red Belt"...

Show a PSL event preview in theaters before the movie!!!

You know, back in the good ol' days they always had something to excite the crowds before the show.

Nothing like throwing popcorn at the screen.
