    Does P4P really matter? Who cares?

    Ill give it a shot:
    The light weight would beat the heavy weight If the light weight was heavy. If the heavy weight was light than the he would beat the light weight. If the middle weight was … weight middle than he could beat the middle weight.

    There can only be one:
    Boys: Terukina
    Girls: Nanea Estrella
