The "So What?": This is the second year for the Phoenix Pro Championships, which debuted in 2010 (won by IFBB Pro Melvin Anthony) and kicked off the 2010 IFBB Pro League contest season. There will be no 202 Division contest this year as there was last year (won by IFBB Pro Roc Shabazz).

Andrew Oye's Verdict: Among the pre-contest top contenders are Arizona-based Troy Alves (recent Hartford Pro winner), Ed Nunn (recent Dallas Pro runner-up), and Hidetada Yamagishi (recent Tampa Pro runner-up). On a side note: Polish powerlifter Robert Piotrkowicz competed at Joe Weider's Olympia Weekend for the first time last year, but he still fighting for a 2011 Olympia qualification to challenge 4-time Mr. Olympia IFBB Pro Jay Cutler again -- even though Piotrkowicz has already competed in a whopping six pro contests this year, including the Arnold Sports Festival's IFBB Pro Arnold Schwarzenegger Classic Bodybuilding Championships (won by IFBB Pro Branch Warren), Mr. Europe Pro Grand Prix (won by IFBB Pro Ronny Rockel), FIBO Power Pro Germany (won by IFBB Pro Dexter Jackson), Orland Pro Show of Champions (won by IFBB Pro Cedric McMillan), Toronto Pro SuperShow (won by IFBB Pro Craig Richardson) and the Tampa Pro (won by IFBB Pro Marius Dohne).
