"It's exciting as hell that not everyone is going to know who these fighters are," said Pollak, also a devoted fight fan. "Because they won't forget afterward."
"We grew up in a time when not only was it one of the most exciting sports on TV, but it was clearly the most exciting sport to be at live," Pollak said. "The idea of the Barker show is to bring back that live experience, with no television deals or anything. Just to get that atmosphere in place."
