What do we have lined up? We? We have something great.
We have something great.
I believe this is going to be the first first male fighter that uh we featured on my show that uh has yet to have a professional boat, so he’s technically an amateur technically an amateur, but he’s just turned pro, and he is now signed to devin haney Promotions so now he’s signed to devin haney, new promotional uh company, so we’re gon na see lots of this kid.
His name is amari jones uh played for teemia or you know, boxer team, usa, uh he’s part of double trouble gym.

He is one of these amateurs.
That’S that’s on the scene that everybody should be looking out, for he is the number one middleweight in the us uh beating a handful of the best upcomers uh, even even even a guy that we’ve just profiled on the show he has a win in his amateur Over mazzy goldstein, who we had on the show and um amari’s mario murray’s, calling out jake paul a man he uh.
He wants to fight jake, paul and uh.
He he’s had no no uh response and uh.
He doesn’t understand why yeah? I think i think he thinks that jake paul might be afraid to fight him and he says: come on man, i you know, i’m an amateur, i haven’t had a pro fight.
Yet what’s stopping you from taking this fight, i believe it’s because of his abilities.
This kid is really good.
If you watch all his amateur boats, there’s tons of them.
I can’t find his actual record for win loss for his amateurs.
So i’m not even going to talk about that.
We just know that he’s really good he’s had a ton of fights he’s got a lot of experience.
You know he’s now, training he’s now.
Training with devin haney he’s been sparring in the ring with him.
Uh he’s got a lot of you know this kid’s he’s got he’s got the he’s, got the ability to be big uh.
You know he’s the only fighter on my list right now without a professional fight uh, but he’s burst onto the scene as one of the key components to devin haney’s camp for uh.
The gamble fight – that’s coming up, so he’s actually using this kid uh in his sparring and well sparring and getting ready for his own camp uh jones, who is known to be training with part of devon.
Hey me, promotions is a fighter.
Who, honestly, is one of the most well respected boxing media people um, and that was told by fight hype? Uh he’s commented about being blown away by his in in in regards to jones talents in the gym.
So, even though we haven’t seen him yet in a pro situation or in a pro fight, his amateur ability and the way that he’s transitioning now um from amateur to pro is is, is very it’s it’s it’s honestly, it’s it’s really what fun to watch man he’s He’S really talented he’s transitioning.
Well, we don’t have a fight for him yet, but definitely he’s going to be one of these guys to look out, for you know as a welterweight he’s he’s he’s coming up and he’s going to be he’s going to be a force to be reckoned with.
In that weight class man he’s he’s fast, um his ability to duck and dodge guys.
Man like i watch some of his sparring tapes and he’s in the gym with these guys that are you know, they’re bigger, they’re, stronger the fast you know, they’re just as fast.
If that faster them – and they can’t hit this guy man he’s just ducking and dodging everything and he’s just got this nice long region – and you know, he’s a very talented athlete who is now just going to be turning well he’s turned pro, but we just wait To see in his first fight guys we’ll keep you up to date, we’ll definitely let you know when this kid’s going to be in the ring he’s going to be a force to be reckoned with.

I know he’s gon na make that pro debut with some honestly.

It’S probably when he’s gon na make that debut uh, but you know what you can watch his training.
You can watch devin, haney coaching, this kid from the sidelines really sparring and i’m telling you this kid is just eating up.
The information like like crazy he’s like a sponge – and you know you can see it – you can see his his his abilities and the way he’s transitioning in in different in the different videos.
