[, Music ]: what up talking fight fans thanks for tuning in to today’s episode of knuckle up with yours, truly mike orr and my man cedric ben, doing what we do best, and that is prospects.
Oh, is carl in the house today, no he’s not yet.
He probably will be here soon ready to drop his comments.
But yes, we’re talking about young, hungry, undefeated and undiscovered prospects, and we do it every day in and out except saturdays, because we got ta work.
Sometimes so you guys don’t have to.
But yes, we’re talking about adrian, pretty boy, panera wow! Let me talk about this kid for half a second before we break down his fighting style man right now, this 25 year old, who is six four six four man cruiserweight, is eight and oh, with eight knockouts man supporting that hundred percent um.
He is ranked 20th and 186 in the united states right now, 159th out of 1139 in the world, and he is coming off of a first round tko victory on the 23rd of this month against javier gomez, rudia, and that was at the uh carib royal, orlando.
Orlando and yeah man, honestly uh this kid uh he’s a monster.
Man and he’s been uh he’s been taking people out being called being called a knockout artist boom uk in the house there he is yeah well yeah, let’s uh, i was away.
I was away for a few days.
I didn’t get a chance to clean the gym.
Sorry, sorry, but yeah, let’s uh, you’ve watched some highlights.
Let’S uh, let’s talk about him um you um.
He has he’s eight, no right now with eight knockouts um, many of them.
Many of his knockouts came early in the fight early in the early play.
Correct yeah! That’S fine! That’S right! How many in the first round, uh out of the seven, i believe, out of the seven or sorry out of the eight seven of them have been within within well actually they’ve all been within two rounds except except his second fight, which actually went a tko in The fourth, so seven out of those eight, have not gone past the second round um.
You know what um uh.
That’S it’s, it’s a good, it’s good, financially, but bad for experience.
Whenever, whenever i say it’s kind of like uh, we talked about edison all right cook.
Addison, whatever his first name is berlinga that was on, he went like six.
You know with 16 first round knockouts, it’s great for advertising, you know people buying tickets or whatever stuff.
You know they can advertise you at this knockout artist, but it’s just kind of you’re you’re lacking that experience that you get as as you’re moving up in the ranks.
So that’s that’s.
The only concern with someone going on a going out that, like the ideal situation, is that you go the distance, but still and like the last round, you knock out the person.
So at least you get.
The experience of you know fighting that better competition um.
But as as far as mr pinero’s uh fighting style, obviously he’s a power puncher, um yeah, the few highlights i got to see from him is that he does.
He does try to set it up.
He doesn’t just come in wild but um.
I know it’s working for him so far, so hopefully hopefully he’s getting that more experience in sparring because he’s not getting in this fight because he’s finishing off everyone, everyone early exactly exactly honestly, it is true man you’re not going to get a lot of ring experience, But are they? Are they padding this guy’s record? Probably um? Are they trying to move them fast, get them up well time out.
The timeout sees that i, like that, i’m glad you brought that up because yeah exactly you don’t get paid for overtime in boxing, but here’s here’s the thing uh.
Whenever people say you know, every boxer has a padded record that, like a promoter, has to have a reason to to take care of you, not just any random off the off the person off the street that comes in is going to sign a contract and the Promoter is going to make sure to give you every easy fight possible, like you have to have a room, they see potential in them.
Yes, either they see potential or you’re coming in with a name like like you’re coming into the pro ranks with with um.
You know some olympic gold medals or something like that or you’re already a ticket sailor, there’s some amateur boxers that can sell out, sell out their home towns.
So if you come into the pro ranks like that, then the promo, the promoter will will take care of you like, as far as matchups, to make sure that you’re you’re still bringing in you know that money is coming in but you’re, just if you’re just a Random person just turning pro that you’re like you’re, not getting protected, you’re just thrown into the wolves.
If you can make it you can make it, but like you, don’t you don’t get protected.
So you know it’s not just a given just because someone is undefeated.
Uh um that they have a they have a padded record because i’ve never heard of this guy before i don’t know, if he’s not, if he hasn’t done anything as an amateur, he is, if like he doesn’t, have any any high level amateur status and he’s 8-0 With eight first-round knockouts, this might be someone someone to watch, because you know he’s not he’s not being carried he’s, not being protective.
No he’s he’s not bearing carried he’s not signed to any major promotion.
Uh can’t even i can’t even find a manager for him like uh.
You know he’s he’s uh he’s he’s been training out of a place called church street boxing in florida uh.
You know they have some some.
You know house trainers in there, but no nobody.
Nobody! Major is doing it for this kid uh.
You know he grew up in brazil.
He was a soccer player.
You know that was the sport of his country and naturally that is what he focused on boxing was the furthest thing from his mind, but before he moved into the ring, pinerno gave another sport a try.
He took he took the football, but this time it was american version of the sport before moving to the us uh.
You know he went to poland to live with his grandfather uh and go to school there for a year uh.
One day the teachers in in poland saw him.
You know, saw him and invited him to an amateur football team where he coached uh.
You know upon moving to the united states, he settled into orlando florida.
He probably joined the football team at freedom high school where he started uh a defense event.
Despite playing a new sport in a completely new city and country, pierno uh saw sports as a source of comfort during a time of uncertainty uh during his senior season in 2015 2016.
He amassed 14 tackles and four sacks, although he was not even introduced to football until his teenage years, he quickly became one of freedom’s best players for a moment and considered playing the next level in joining college football program, but the full scholarship offers that he had Hoped for never came uh with this paternal, a difficult decision to make he’d soon find himself beginning a completely new journey um.
You know fitness has always been a major component for him.
Uh, you know he’s a regular at the gym working to not only build up his body but to keep himself in line and disciplined uh.
You know, with over 18 000 instagram followers.
He found another area where fitness makes an impact and that’s modeling his opportunity as a model continues to grow as he manages and balances two seemingly different career paths that and boxing.
Although critics have questioned a boxer stepping into the modeling scene, never lets doubts get to him uh instead of pajerno uh, you know, has simply turned uh this fuel into a greater motivation to be his best, whether it be modeling boxing or other aspects in his life.
Man uh, the expert level of preparation which bruno is continually improving in the gym, has served him well uh in his boxing career this far man, and then you know when he first stepped into the boxing ring.
He completely fell in love with the sport immediately.
He wanted to challenge himself to the greatest limits.
Becoming a world champion was one of his goals from the start uh in this four in the four years since then, he’s won the new england golden gloves in super heavyweight at a as a novice fighter.
He also been around multiple world champions contenders and olympians um.
You know uh what keeps him so motivated, even in the toughest scariest situations against some of the world’s top boxers uh, the belief in being disciplined and whatever he does.
His mindset does not waver from the goals that he has set for himself man.
So this kid has a super strong mind and he’s got these goals that are set for him and he’s going to do whatever he can to achieve these goals.
Man and one of the most important lessons has learned as an athlete is the rather simple message yet one.
That’S that he strives to carry out every day as soon as he steps into the ring.
His goal is to do his best and that’s what his dad always taught him as long as you do your best and leave leave like you left it all on the field or in the ring.
You should be happy uh with this winning mentality.
Paterno now has so much left to prove as a boxer, but outside the ring he deserves the positivity impact.
Others uh is even greater.
After all, he knows exactly what it feels like to be counted out when starting when starting a new journey man.
So you know more than just a boxer.
Herno is a true inspiration to those who are aiming to take a leap of faith into a new life in a new area in a new country uh, you know no matter the goal, whether in sports or or anything coherent values and mindset are sometimes um or Something everyone can learn from man, he may have started as an underdog, but now he continues to chase his dream of being that world champion and uh.
You know what, with that july, 23rd win taking him to eight and eight uh.
You know what can you say? He’S definitely definitely yo yeah.
Definitely, let’s get him over to the uk and see what happens.
Man we’ll take yeah we’ll get up over the uk, get that zero gone because you know what that zero will be a lesson, and you know what it won’t affect him because of this kid’s mindset.
That’S the thing he will learn from this uh he’ll.
Learn from that loss, you know it’s gon na happen.
Eventually, you’re not gon na go all the way.
You know there is those times where it’s just gon na.
You know you’re gon na get that loss man, but that loss is gon na, be a lesson – and this is one of those kids whose mindset is so strong that it will be a lesson it will not affect him.
He will learn from it.
