Baby Joe Mesi on Versus Tonight

Buffalo's own Baby Joe Mesi makes his return to the boxing ring in front of a national audience tonight on Versus (9 PM EST) and Tim Graham speculates that the Sabres history of good ratings on the channel may have played a role:

My goal is to use fighters that can attract ratings, and Joe, coming from an area with a pretty sizable following, I figured he would help the ratings," said Bruce Trampler, matchmaker for Las Vegas-based promoter Top Rank. "The additional controversy of his health and well-being is another factor."

Versus knows the power of Buffalo sports fans quite well. The NHL All-Star game last month drew a 0.7 national rating, but a whopping 7.1 rating in Buffalo.

Still waiting on the figures for Tuesday's national telecast against the Flyers...
