Here in Tuscaloosa, we take a few things quite seriously:  We don’t play about our food (if you think it’s a lie, go to ANY restaurant within the first month of opening), we don’t play about craft beer, and we definitely don’t play about our sports!

Of course, football reigns supreme; but athleticism takes many forms, and in Tuscaloosa we are into them all!

Among the latest to gain mass appeal is boxing.  This is mostly due to the success of hometown champion Deontay Wilder, who won the Bronze Medal in the 2008 Olympics, earning the nickname “The Bronze Bomber.”

Wilder is surrounded by a circle of fighters, including his brother Marsellos, who according to has a record of 6-2-0.

Making the rounds in Tuscaloosa and surrounding areas is boxer Charles Harris.  Harris, who is said to have a record of 7-0, is known for capitalizing on every opportunity to train, often using unconventional methods to get the job done.

In efforts of advancing his career and increasing public awareness of his skill, Harris has challenged Marsellos Wilder to a fight.  He even went so far that he’d put up $10,000 of his own money on himself as the emerging winner.

Check out the audio from his interview with us:

First of all, we congratulate Mr. Harris on the birth of his first child. Surely, this is a great moment in his life.

Second, it is important to note that his confidence does make one a bit intrigued.  It’s been a while since most of us have attended any event in person.  So, here’s to hoping a fight can take place with a masked referee.

Is that something you’d be willing to pay to see, considering the fact that entertainment is so limited?
