PUEBLO, Colo. ― The Professional Bull Riders and Bad Boy Mowers have teamed up to offer $25,000 to any rider who is matched with and successfully rides the Bad Boy Mowers Bounty Bull during each 15/15 Bucking Battle.
Reigning PBR World Champion J.B. Mauney was the first cowboy in 2014 to have a chance at earning $25,000 on the Bad Boy Mowers Bounty Bull. In Oklahoma City, Mauney was matched with two-time World Champion BullBushwacker for the $25,000, but the bovine dumped Mauney in 3.48 seconds.
Bushwacker will also be the Bad Boy Mowers Bounty Bull in Anaheim, Calif., this weekend during the LiftMaster Chute Out where he will compete in the second 15/15 Bucking Battle of 2014. North Dakota native Nathan Schaper will square off with Bushwacker this upcoming Saturday for the first time in his career. After winning his first Built Ford Tough Series event while in Oklahoma City two weeks ago, the young gun will now check off another first as he attempts the World Champion Bull.
The PBR will be in Anaheim Feb. 7-9, as the Honda Center hosts the Built Ford Tough Series LiftMaster Chute Out. Bull riding begins at 8 p.m. on Friday, 6:50 p.m. on Saturday and 2:50 p.m. on Sunday. The 15/15 Bucking Battle will take place on Saturday, featuring the Top 15 bull riders facing off with the Top 15 bulls in a special round of competition.
The 15/15 Bucking Battle featuring the Bad Boy Mowers Bounty Bull will air on CBS Network Television Sunday, Feb. 9, at noon ET.
The BFTS is televised every week on CBS, CBS Sports Network and networks around the world. BFTS telecasts are produced for the PBR under a multi-year agreement with David Neal Productions, a Los Angeles-based production company led by 34-time Emmy® Award winner and Peabody Award winner David Neal, who serves as executive producer.
