Foreign [ Music ] thanks for tuning in to today’s episode of The Knuckle Up knockout of the week with yours, truly Mike or – and I am joined by my friend today, Tim Witherspoon from the Friday night panel, we had a great weekend of Knockouts, so it was A little hard to pick the one that was deserving of this reward, but uh you know, with the help of Tim, we were we we narrowed it down to the winner and uh.
Definitely that winner is going to be Alexia Roca uh against his last minute, replacement.
Uh well actually, what can we say about this knockout uh, brilliant, brilliant knockout? I I was super excited for this uh.
You know, Roca, he’s 22-1 with 14 Kos was forced to labor hard before finally knocking out his replacement opponent, George ashy, who was 33 6-1 with 25k.
I was in the seventh round on Saturday night at the YouTube theater in Inglewood, California, broken drunk ashy twice in the contest once in the third and a final time in the seventh resulting in the fight being stopped as she was nailed by a big right hand.
From Roca in the seventh round that sent him down face first onto the canvas guys out cold in what I’m calling a highlight reel knockout for this weekend, uh.
Definitely this this is not taking away from some of the other Knockouts that happened this weekend.
You know this one year the referee, Thomas Taylor didn’t even bother to count as ashy was unconscious and wasn’t moving to muscle.
Uh Taylor halted the fight at 208 of the seventh uh in the third round.
Rokin knocked Ashley down with a nice right hook to the head that he never saw coming uh to his credit as he made it out of that round and fought tooth and nail in rounds.
Four, five and six and up until he got knocked out in the seventh uh before that Roca, suffered a cut over his eye uh in the sixth round from clash of heads as she took advantage of the blood dripping into roku’s left eye by Landing.
Numerous right hands on that spot of the cut for the remainder of the round the 38 year old Ashley, who campaigns at 140, was badly outsized by the much bigger and younger 25 year old broker in this fight uh, you know the size and power differences between Them were significant moments after the fight broker called out WBO Welterweight Champion Terence Crawford saying he wants him next uh for me for me, we’ll we’ll talk about this now we’ll get into it.
For me, I don’t think Roca, I don’t think Roca needs to jump in uh that quick with uh, you know bud Crawford.
I think he still has a little bit to go.
I think his defense, as we were talking yesterday, Tim about it.
His defense still needs a bit of work.
He is still green behind the ears.
You know he uh he he for me.
I don’t think that he’s able to step up into that competition as of yet, I think he needs a few more fights a little bit.
More ring time before we can see him in their returns, Bud Crawford, but uh Tim.
What are your thoughts on that big right hand? Well, that was a really hard hitting fight that was really hard in fighting.
I was impressed with uh his power and everything uh.
He really got hit, he really got hit with that.
He got hit with that.
You know they were banging back and forth banging back and forth.
You know, and you know me – I’m always going to criticize some things, but it’s in a good way.
I did see the the fact that they, both uh, you know they both suffered a little bit of lack of defense and and you know, but there was aggressive and you can’t tell it was a good fight.
There was exchanging punches and um, but me guys, like me, I noticed a defensive thing when when when, when they move up that ladder, I think uh defense is going to be needed.
I always emphasize on that gratefully.
Definitely it’s something that comes with definitely a hard hitting fight, yeah.
Definitely a hard hit and fight uh.
You know with time you know with winning time is when this defense will come.
You know he needs to get in.
There really start to work on that because, as you get up there, people like you, know, bud Crawford.
He will capitalize on situations like that.
Obviously, you know that Cut Above the eye kind of messed, with his vision a bit and that’s where you know George Ashley was able able to capitalize on that and able to.
You know get off some shots that you know landed cleanly and clearly not the kind of way you want to be stepping in the ring against buddy Crawford.
You need to have your game tight, because I think he’s strong enough.
You just need make.
You know somebody got to give him confidence like real quick.
They gave me confidence about with homes right he went up for homes, you know, and you know I only had what 13 14 fights, but somebody in my corner that that you know motivated me so um in his car he’s a warrior.
Maybe just maybe need a couple more things and I think he could he could.
He could probably participate in that that fight and do really well.
He could upset him because he could punch yes, a matter of somebody, maybe showing them something.
Now you write, on the other hand too.
I think it’s your way, but me I’m like man if he had the right guy.
I’M always like that optimistic.
I’M always like that right see.
Alexi Roca he’s only 25.
he’s only 25.
So he’s you know, he’s still he’s still kind of young he’s.
Still there uh, you know he’s got lots of time to make those jumps uh.
After that fight, though he is now ranked number 12 out of 2055 in the welterweight division.
Uh he’s uh in the world and he’s ranked six out of 397 in the United States uh.
You know for me for me.
I I kind of find that he’s uh.
You know up until up until now, really he’s kind of been slept on a little bit, because he’s kind of stuck in that in that gray area in the welterweight division, like he’s too good to fight some guys and and some of the other guys are just Too busy to fight him at the moment, because there’s no no real reward to fight there’s, no, you know you’re not going to sell out a stadium with him in a pay-per-view against Bud Crawford right now.
I don’t think you’re gon na see that okay, he needs to build a little bit more following, but definitely um.
You know as he goes on as he gets older uh.
You know his skills are there? Man he’s he’s, definitely got what it takes.
Man he’s got.
The power you know he’s just getting into that.
You know those stages of gaining that old man’s strength, as we call it he’s now, 22-1, with 14 Knockouts.
The only blemish on his record is against rashidi Ellis.
We talk about the difference.
I’M talking about a different boxer, I’m sorry, it’s okay! No man we’re talking about the one with the long uh! Oh we’re talking about.
Oh we’ll talk about him in a minute, um yeah, the other one in The Knockout against yours.
It was great uh.
You know huge right hand best part is I’ve got some.
I got some still shots.
I took some still shots of it.
We’Re gon na look at this big right hand uh from a couple of angles, so we get to see the way he just dropped them.
He just need a little bit more time.
It does need a little bit more time.
I’M sorry! I’M sorry! So here he is this.
Is this is okay? This is the final here.
This is the shot.
You know as she comes in you know, Roca slips.
It slips that punch and just comes barreling with this right hand right.
Oh yeah, yeah straight on the chin right on the chanting.
Drops we’ve got another angle of it.
Oh there he is flat on his face, guys already sleeping waving that account.
You know they got a little tied up here, made that space created that distance.
You can see.
You can see Roca right now, pinpointing that that Target he’s looking at that Target.
He sees that uh.
You know, as his hand, is down he’s ready to just deliver this.
The you know that thundering right hand blows too.
He was he was.
He was fighting back uh.
You know, I give it to him.
He definitely was in there to fight hard.
He you know he was looking.
He was looking to come through with the victory there, but he got caught clean and flush right on the chin there.
It is guys here’s here’s another angle from leaves his hand down.
Roka comes up over the top clips him right on the chin here it is.
This is how he lays out guys.
Oh there we go and down and out down and out huge huge you got.
You know that just goes to show you guys.
It helps you when you are digging down into that body.
Downstairs you better make sure that you have your head blocked, Cedric.
Yes, she huge knockout.
We just saw it big, big, yeah yeah.
I heard you guys talking that’s what happens when you keep dropping your hands.
After you, after you, uh throw right one thing I always tell the boxers like when you’re, even just Shadow Boxing or hitting the bag.
There should always be some type of defensive move that you do just just so it’s in your in your brain.
You have to think about it because she, you should always expect a Punch coming back at you, even if you’re winning the fight yeah win the fight.
You said, oh, you know you can’t just do this all the time all the time exactly exactly so.
That’S that was uh, I’m assuming he doesn’t really practice that because his jab was like it’s almost like when people are swimming like you know, when they swim in their hands, go down to get it back, come right back, yeah, exactly the straight line.
Some of these guys really got to spend time uh.
You know in front of that mirror Shadow Boxing a little more and correcting those little uh money mistakes that they’re making you know by by dropping that hand as you bring it back.
That was one thing that I always was you know on about my students.
You know you throw that out there.
I want it coming back at the same velocity, you put it out there.
I don’t want it.
I don’t want to drop him down.
You know you just got to teach them defense.
Just like you do offense.
Oh, you throw a jab right ahead, no bring your hands back same thing.
You do on defense.
They both go together, really exactly exactly right.
You know with a great offense.
You need great defense, that’s for sure, and you know you got ta always be protected.
You know just to just to show you man, it’s one punch that can change the entire outcome of a fight, and it shows you right there with this huge knockout of Alexi Roca, taking out George Ashley, that last minute replacement, but he fought a hard ass fight.
But now we got to touch on something: no, it was banging.
It was bad.
It was hard to pick.
It was hard to pick I’m not gon na.
Let that ice on my back had hard to pick this another big one.
I want to talk about inclusive um.
Definitely, uh put a hiccup in his step with the Gabriel Rosado knockout knockout of the year uh.
He got knocked out guys uh.
He uh he’s he’s funny and he’s fought a few times, which is, I should train with him in the gym he he was, he could punching and he was aggressive.
Yes, very aggressive Gabriel was jealous yeah yo, it’s this guy, this uh back to my metal, inclusive.
You know that was a huge knockout.
It put a hiccup in his career.
Definitely um he’s called him out.
He’S called him out after last night’s Victory.
He wants to take care of that blemish and he wants Gabriel Rosado back in the ring.
Oh, he wouldn’t fight Gabriel, but I’ll tell you his his career did take a little bit of a slow.
You know it slowed down quite a bit.
He was on a he was on a trajectory path straight up that knockout really put him back, because you know what he’s fought, what four or five times since then, and really this is the biggest the biggest media coverage that he’s had since getting knocked out like That but uh very, very impressive, uh body shots last night.
Definitely, I think, he’s one of the hardest body shot punchers in that division.
What are your thoughts on that and we’re talking about the guy with the socks? You know what I mean: there’s a lot of guys like him.
Um and you know they got cut down their tree got cut down too.
You know they got hit on the chin, but there’s a lot of guys um a lot of there’s some middleweights that punch hard like that Curtis, I’m gon na say the name because right right up now, Curtis Parker.
What’S that evidence the Spanish dude? It was some hard punches man and then they faced it uh uh, more strong competition, bad.
You know, but dumb guys can punch six drugs Citron or something like that.
Remember him Kermit Citron yeah.
He wasn’t near puncher.
He was a puncher right, yeah yeah, yeah, yeah yeah and he got stop.
Somebody stopped him.
I’M an old man, now y’all guys come on man I’ll help you out.
I remember I I know exactly that was uh in like early 2000s or you know, like 2005 2006, when he was uh up and coming it might have been like.
No, I don’t know, I can’t I don’t know I just I don’t want to just say it off the top of my head, but it was.
I know what you’re talking about.
He was on.
The his career was going up until he got that that loss – Iran or I don’t know – I forgot that maybe Antonio Margarita one of those guys, I think it was Marvin – was it Marvin Hagler.
Was that long? I don’t think central is worth the wait right.
Yes, okay, yeah yeah, yeah yeah, so there it is, you know back to normal inclusive, coming back uh.
You know with a very impressive win, stopping them with the body shots uh, you know he’s calling them yeah man he was, he was.
He was Landing flush.
Man honestly uh wow, that that shot that ended it it was.
It was huge that was honestly one of my one of my leading knockout Sarah.
Until this uh Alexia Roca fight uh, where uh you know, everybody went to sleep, he got slumped pretty hard uh.
You know I got ta also touch on that same card man.
Definitely some big action on this card, the um, the minimum weight.
I don’t know if you guys had a chance to see it uh, but our man in the minimum weight division, Oscar Collazo uh, taking on you, don’t Rez, don’t realize yeah the minimum weight yeah we’re banging for sure this one went five out of the 12 scheduled Rounds in that minimum division, Reyes was down twice around five count wave because he was sleeping.
He landed flat on his back huge knockout honestly.
What what a great card, though you know you got The meleclusive Knockout on the card.
You have the colors, though knockout on the card, and then our winner, the Alexi Roca, knockout against Georgia, Ashley uh, shout out to our Boy Floyd schoolfield on his uh WBA International light title that he won last night in a unanimous got ta give a shout out To our boy, we’ve been following him since his kids, congratulations, yeah congrats for that WBA light international title man.
This is one of many that this kid is going to have guys.
If you haven’t heard the name yet man Floyd kid, Austin Scofield make sure you look out for him.
He’S one of these up-and-comers just signed a golden boy, doing big things, Golden Boy, yeah and golden golden boys.
Do what I’m right um another guys I wan na.
We got ta talk about it because everybody’s talking about very popular fight, better be of Anthony yard down once in the eighth round his Corner advisor referee, to stop the contest better, be it was just the stronger guy.
What do you guys think about the fight yeah? That was, I was impressed series yeah yeah.
He um he’s one of those guys, that’s like, even though you know they, they weigh the same they’re, the same height.
You know basically same reach and everything like he just hits harder.
It just gets harder than everyone else and it’s not even like he throws what I like to call like single punch: combinations like he’s not gon na come at you with, like you know, a 10 punch combination, but it’s going to be bang and then bang bang.
It’S putting his body into it, he’s putting his whole body into it right.
You know like when you throw a fast combination.
You can’t exactly turn your hips and pivot your foot on every on every single punch, but when you throw single punches, you can really focus on on.
You know on that turn sitting down and turning on your punches and that’s what he does, he doesn’t throw fast combinations.
He just throw single punches, but like hard and heavy body, it’s like it’s like he’s swinging a bag of rocks at you.
Man, that’s you know, he’s it’s the only way to describe it.
You know he does a lot of explosive power training in his regimen and that’s where he gets that explosive hard-hitting power.
Man he’s he’s a truck, and you know what he’s the only world champion right now.
That is supporting a 100 finish rate.
There is nobody else carrying the title right now that is supporting a 100 finish.
Read better be of is the man you know.
I honestly I thought it was gon na go six.
It looked like he had the opportunity to finish it in six.
It went eight shout out to uh Ray who called that one from uh between the ropes TV.
He said it was going eight, it did go.
Eight, it was a huge fight shout out to them uh.
Also on the card guys got ta talk about it, um the debut I’m leaning it over because my neck, because my my neck is messed up Mike.
Did it yeah with with all these hard Knockouts? For you to watch, you had trouble picking them.
Are you? Oh Shania, get the charger Shania Moses, saituba debut! Oh, I got the charger 23 seconds.
I’M sorry wins is per debut by knockout opening up that card in the UK uh.
Well, his brother gets knocked out thoughts who who’s this.
I didn’t see that, for you, the YouTuber Brothers, the YouTuber Brothers yeah, Carol aituma, who uh you know who’s who’s been around the division for a while.
Now he was 9-0 going into that fight last night against Ezekiel ozavaro moderna uh.
That was for the WBC International light heavy title it was vacant.
Ituma was ko’d by a right hand to the head there that was it 104 of the fifth round uh.
Well, the debut of his brother Moses, at 248 uh only needed 23 seconds bone was ko’d by a left to the Head uh.
It literally was 23 seconds and three punches thrown, and that was it uh Moses saituma, they believe, is the British.
The next British Mike Tyson kind of thing uh, you know the kid can’t the kid canceled his own 18th birthday so that he can stay on track to beat that record and become the youngest heavyweight champion ever.
Can he do it? Only time will tell did he look good in his debut you’re damn right, and did I profile him already? Yes, I did during the weeks I told you to be watching for this kid he’s definitely gon na be a force to be reckoned with in that heavyweight division.
Look for this kid to be fast tracked, push through and be super busy in 2023.
You know it’s unfortunate that his brother lost, but you know it was a great debut for him.
