[ Music, ] hello, there, boxing fans around the world.
Thank you for joining us once again here on talking pipe another episode of knuckle up featuring yours truly mike four at four and cedric ben is in the den today you’re gon na, explain to me and the rest of the world who the heck is iron chalmers.
We will but first we’re gon na get you out of here, so see you later, the other way.
Okay, yes, yes! Yes, we are talking about none other than aaron chalmers, the x on the beach star, the gordy shore star mma, star assigned to bellator, who ended with a 5-2 record in his mma career before retiring deciding to put on the boxing gloves folks.
Yes, he has been signed to a multi-fight promotional deal with none other than boxer who we’ve been looking at all week, and i’ve stumbled upon this um cedric break it down for us man.
I know there’s no boxing matches to really see he did have his pro debut already.
He is one and oh in that pro debut and he debuted on the savannah marshall guard against none other than our our woman.
Her uh herman’s, which we talked about that fight uh.
He was on this card, yeah yeah, yeah, yeah, um.
Sorry, i mean the stuff that he was doing in anime is interesting, as i just watched him knock.
The f out of this guy here alex thompson um.
It’S kind of hard to judge, because some of the things that you can get away with in with mma stand up.
You can’t really get away with in boxing uh, so it’s gon na be interesting to see how he uh how he matches up with uh.
With someone that only does only does stand up the guy’s, like the the way that he’s been finishing, his fights just by like just straight up like rushing the person and overwhelming them and his work from so far he’s caught.
One like any time someone’s coming is coming at him: he’ll just catch them.
There was one time he caught someone right on the chin and the other times he just swarms the person anyway, it’s gon na be interesting, the stuff that to see if, if uh, if this stuff will actually work on um, you know season season, boxers yeah.
You know one of the main reasons why we talked about it right before it went on that they picked him up is because of all the the the followers that he has.
I don’t know millions of followers on instagram and um and close to a million whatever on twitter, so i’m assuming they’re hoping to uh to to to get some of those followers there and probably a future if he gets if he gets a couple of knockouts in Boxing he’s probably gon na be a next opponent for uh i mean those youtube guys.
Oh honestly, honestly, i’m gon na! Even let you know this okay, so the former gertie shower star, officially retired, from mma uh.
You know ending with a solid 5-2 record after fighting in bama and bellator um chalmers who’s 34 uh has now officially signed with sky sports uh.
You know promotion boxer and already had his first fight he’s coached by renowned trainer, adam booth and chalmers did appear on the undercard of savannah martial’s world title fight, a move to mma.
The boxing had been proposed to chalmers months ago uh.
When there was speculation, he could fight fellow influencer tommy, fury former lover, love island, star, tommy, fury 22 is the younger half brother of february, world champions nice and fury.
If you guys don’t know uh and it didn’t come to fruition.
But chalmers has been working hard in training and women and when he did make his permission uh his promotional debut, it was done in a great fashion um.
You know he has also revealed that he hopes to fight fury in the future, while also eyeing youtube returned boxer, jake paul guys as a potential opponent down the line.
So charmers told the sun quote, i don’t know tommy, but i know he probably gets as much uh as much stick as i do so.
Maybe that’s something we can look at down the line.
He’S a big lad stuff like that.
It interests us because it’s a challenge: it’s a big fight, maybe not for so-called boxing fans but i’ll bring gordy shore fans to boxing, which is not a bad thing.
End quote so that being said guys, you know what he’s trying he’s uh trying to make that jump from mma now to boxing uh.
You know guys if you had the opportunity to see his pro debut uh and can find it again to watch, definitely check it out.
Um we’re gon na try and find the video of it and post it here in the comments for you guys to see it.
Uh, so you guys can follow along uh with this guy’s career too, as well um.
I just thought that you know today.
I would bring him out to the public and let everybody know about him uh.
You know just to show that boxer really uh.
You know they’ve got a wide, a wider range of what they’re looking for in their boxers and they definitely are the quickest growing.
You know um promotional company in the uk right now, man and they are definitely signing everybody.
They can that uh is looking to boost them yeah.
Another another side.
Note you know he’s um.
He was signed with with bellator before, which is, i believe, you know the second biggest mma company after the ufc.
You know i’m assuming.
If you’re, you know bellator, your paychecks are pretty good and for him to leave that to go to boxing, i’m assuming the paycheck’s, probably even a little bit better.
So yeah, that’s probably the reason why i made that switch.
Definitely you know in in 2017 he had his first mma fight, uh beating greg, greg jenkins uh.
He has previously practiced winning time.
He won uh his second professional fight in ba mma 31 at the sec arena, beating alex thompson by ko on the 15th of september 2017.
uh, his third fight uh.
His third and final fight for ba mma was a win by tko against carl donaldson.
On the 15th of december, in his hometown arena the metro radio arena in newcastle uh in march 2018 chalmers announced he would be joining bellator and he had his first fight against ash griffiths on the 25th of may 2018 for the bellator 200 event at wembley arena.
He won that fight technical submission in the first round and in the second outing for the promotion.
Chalmers suffered his first defeat as a professional fighter, as he was defeated by american corey browning by submission in the third round and then in june 2019.
Charmers return to the win column with a submission victory over fred freeman uh chalmers next face then austin clem in a welterweight boat uh at bellator dublin on february 22 2020.
He lost that by unanimous decision.
Uh chalmers announced his retirement for the mma competition there and then uh ig tv, video posted on the 18th of february 2021 and uh guys.
