Professional Rodeo Cowboy Association (PRCA) Bull Riding World Champion J.W. Harris and Professional Bull Riders World Champion (PBR) J.B. Mauney have a date with destiny in just over a weeks time. This afternoon both of these World Champions took time out of their schedules to sit down for a teleconference with select media personnel. The Rodeo Round Up was very honored to be asked to be a part of the meeting and have exclusive details for our fans!
Joining both the champs was producer of the J.W. Hart’s PBR Challenge, where this historic event will take place, J.W. Hart. We had just over 30 minutes to discuss all of our questions about this up coming match-up and what their thoughts are just over a week away from having a chance to earn a $25,000 paycheck for 8 seconds worth of work.
Some of the top media outlets were invited to this telephone conference and the response to the questions asked were amazing. Both J.W. Harris and J.B. Mauney were true professionals and did whatever they could to answer some of the hard questions truthfully. One might think that the tension between these two athletes would be sky high but it was just the opposite. These two champions have nothing but respect for each other and are going into this head to head competition feeling very confident and are excited to put on a great show for the fans. This event brings the fans of both the PRCA and the PBR together for one day and that is exactly what this was meant to do. The buzz has been fantastic and everyone involved is very excited for this to take place next Saturday in Decatur , Texas.
I was given the chance to record the entire teleconference with these three legends of the sport thanks to the PBR office and the media relations department. I am very excited to give all the followers and fans of the Rodeo Round Up the exclusive coverage of the meeting that happened this afternoon.
