his condition is going to be the best at the show, mark my words.... he will be 5lbs lighter then the last show but will be in outstanding shape.. his diet and prep has been spot on.. just watch and see, i just really hope he doesnt get overlooked..

Darrem Charles from Trinidad:
Sliced thighs, harder than Houston. Arms are on Swole! Nice color, shakey on the poses. Still slight in the ham department. Back still needs to be hards, legs are slight. Masterful between poses! Playing well to his strengths. Could be very competitive based on who's on deck.
