AUGUSTA, Ga. -- I'm just sitting here in the mighty fight capital of the South sharing my weekly thoughts with you. You don't know the fight capital of the south? Who knew that Augusta would offer up more than golf members named Hootie, green jackets for Tiger and pimento cheese sandwiches?• Wednesday at 10 p.m. ET Teddy and I will call the action of Augusta's hometown unbeaten Rayonta Whitfield (17-0, 8 KOs). Ray is friends with this area's pride and joy, Paul Williams. The tall conqueror of Antonio Margarito lives just across the Savannah River. And did I mention this region's other champion? Vernon Forrest will join us ringside to discuss his career bounce-back win.
Joe Tessitore is the blow-by-blow announcer for ESPN2's "Friday Night Fights."
