09.08.06 - By Jeff "Big Bazooka" Linenfelser (Letter forwarded from Team Harris)- After reading the comments mentioned by Artie Pelullo, Tyrone Harris, through his manager Gary "GB" Brandenburg had this to say: Artie, I know I may look young, and did not fight my fight against Koba Gogoladze (which I must deal with) BUT to refer to me as an intimidated or boyish fighter, well, if you believe those words, you will have no problem with the following..

I would appreciate it if you would find it in your heart to allow Koba to have a rematch with me "Winner Take All" and the loser will just go home with an empty wallet. This fight should be 10 rounds, anytime, any place of your choosing. I do not believe that Koba can hold a candle to me, even on his best day. To do something once is not an accomplishment, it may just plain old luck, but twice, a different story. I say that Koba Gogoladze shall not accomplish anything through me. I have no excuses for my performance in our first fight, but since you stated concern prior to the fight, give me the opportunity to show you why you should have concern. If Koba is as good as you believe he is and I am as bad as I showed, why not send the contract. You know my promoter and manager, they can take care of the rest.
