I got ta come join you soon, uh, but yeah this kid brandon man, he he went through some some [ __ ] with his management team, and you know it’s it’s about time that uh he got out from underneath, whatever the hell was stopping him uh.
I don’t know exactly what it was, but uh.
He has a wicked wicked ko of samuel samuel t in round three um this kid man what i like about him.
First of all, he called me back instantly uh, but i do like about him.
Real fast he’s got nice hands great movement, lateral um.
You know he can.
He can push a pace.
Uh – and you know what he’s hungry man he’s he’s willing to get in there and do this and uh he’s been waiting around for years just for just to get back in the ring.
You know this is the crazy part he’s been waiting for time to get back in the ring, because he’s had issues with management and now he’s been picked up by vip promotions, and you know what they’re ecstatic that this kid’s here he was born and raised in Yuba city, california, to a korean father and a mexican mother.
He lived there for about 12 years and then moved to uh coachella valley, uh.
He played soccer and ran track as a youngster.
He faced racial prejudice growing up because of his korean descent.
He says people would stereotype a lot and look at my eyes and think chinese and people thought that, because i was asian that i couldn’t fight, so we’ve come down to southern california and they would say we want the little chinito which meant they wanted.
The chinese kid they obviously hadn’t seen those bruce lee movies by then but anyway.
Well, this is what i’m saying like come on.
Man you, you don’t want it.
You know what listen i i taught martial arts for many years and i’ll tell you one thing: you cannot ever underestimate your opponent ever do not do not ever walk into a battle with somebody and underestimate your opponent, because you will be surprised.
The [ __ ] that people know like the weirdest and most awkward people you know can can do damage and, and you would never think anything of it.
You know the little bookworm that you used to pick on in high school.
That everybody’s, like oh i’m, the jock you’re, the nerd, these guys will spin kick your face off man.
We’Ve all seen the videos on youtube like come on, but uh this kid here, brandon uh.
You know he started boxing around six years old.
He had his first amateur fight at eight uh.
He won four junior golden globe championships, the junior silver gloves three times and the junior pal five times.
He was due to represent the us at st petersburg in russia, but his parents refused to let him skip school in order to participate, so he amassed an impressive amateur record of a hundred and eighty-one and nine wow yeah yeah.
So he’s got a really good story.
Man and um, you know he signed a professional contract with manager cameron duncan in the fall of 2016 and debuted shortly afterward at the age of 17.
uh the next year, while he was still in high school.
He has been trained by his father bobby lee since day, one and after compiling a perfect 21-0 record.
Wait! Sorry, sorry wrong statistic! I thought your minute.
I thought you said bobby lee: no, no, but yeah! No! No! The nephew bruce lee! No! No! No! No! All right, yeah, i know brandon brandon lead darrod, that’s that’s his kid’s date.
Man he’s yo, he’s he he’s real stuff.
Honestly, you guys are going to want to watch this kid man he’s been hungry, he’s been waiting.
You know what i mean waiting long enough like he hasn’t been in the freaking ring since 2017 and he’s itching to get in there and uh.
So so sorry, so he he’s been since he’s been with vip he’s undefeated, like all of it all of his fights.
Well, no he’s pro his pro he’s.
Never he’s, never lost he’s four he’s 4-0 one knocked out, never lost okay, so and then he got picked up by vip.
Yes, because he’s been he’s been having trouble with management.
Okay, his management team was screwing him over.
I tried to find i tried to get in deeper to it to find out what actually was happening but uh he was he was.
He was put on the inactive list, man because he hasn’t, he hasn’t been doing anything wow.
So you know he finally got picked up.
He finally got picked up by vip and uh.
You know they’re doing they’re doing they’re doing wonders man, they got them already.
We’Re already going to get to see this kid.
I’M super excited man.
I’Ve watched a bunch of i’ve watched these fight, videos and uh.
The kids got talent, man and you know: commonwealth games, bronze, medalist, eight-time national champion now a professional boxer 4-0.
So what he had a little bit of a hiccup in his step.
But here’s the thing he had enough time to step away to work out his old man strength his grown-up man, strength.
You know what i mean: there’s those guys that are usually in that transition.
Where uh, you know, they’re still trying to still try to work that uh this.
This might have done good this little break.
This might have done.
You know some good because uh you know it looks like he’s.
It looks like he’s, never stopped it’s it’s great and uh.
We’Re definitely gon na get to see this kid.
I got him coming into the studio.
I’M super excited for this uh.
He should be joining us next wednesday, next hump day, so guys make sure you tune in for this, because we’re definitely gon na be talking to this kid.
We’Re definitely gon na be talking to him.
He’S gon na come he’s gon na be on the studio.
We’Re gon na ask him everything, man what it’s been like to sit at home and not be able to do anything.
You know uh what what how the management team screwed him over we’re gon na talk.
All this stuff, because you know what the fans want to hear it – i want to hear it.
You want to hear it graham.
No, i do right.
I do now yeah yeah man, honestly um steve woods adds brandon, the rod is uh, you know, adds them to the managerial stable, so guys, we’ve seen it uh.
The eight-time national amateur champion from liverpool was the last in the ring back in november 20.
You know it was last in the ring november of 2017.
That’S what i’m saying you know.
He turned professional under the tutelage of paul stevenson at the uh everton road triangle gym in his home city uh.
He recently became managerial free agent, an inked and deal with steve woods.
Who is the head honcho of vip boxing promotions and wood is? Is you know, he’s eager he’s eager to have this kid jump in the ring and do his things? Uh wood is the manager of ibf featherweight world champion josh warrington uh, who is promoted by eddie hearn and has previously looked after former wbo late world champion terry flanagan.
So there’s a lot going on here and uh.
You know brandon is a southpaw who can do either flyweight or superfly weight and has a ring record of 4-0.
You know with that quick finish and guys i mean quick finish.
You guys got to you got to go and check this out this this it’s it’s! It’S a pretty it’s! It’S a great match.
Man uh this kid.
It’S critical in this episode, in other words, part of me.
His finishes are quicker than this episode.
Oh hell, yeah, hell, yeah, we’re gon na talk.
Lots today don’t worry man, we got lots of but lots of stuff in the news about tyson fury and deontay wilder too.
So we got we got to touch base on that.
Don’T you think [ Laughter ]? Where would you like to start because i’m becoming quite an expert, because a lot of the other show hosts are also talking about tyson, fury and deontay wilder? So i’ll give you a bit of a quick little update.
I did at the behest of our uh friends across the pond.
I did some investigation on youtube, quick, dig through the rabbit hole.
Let’S see we can find down there and i found something interesting.
The the tyson fury camp is being pretty secretive about.
You know their training if you will, with one exception, nutrition.
Oh really, yep, tyson, fury’s hired, not only a nutritionist but a chef for him and his crew.
And when you see the video you see like i’d, say eight guys uh.
But but the point is, is this nutritionist was saying: well, listen, uh! When you’re at this caliber uh, you need five meals a day, not five steaks a day, but you know five uh apportioned meals a day.
So that’s the tyson fury camp.
When i went to see the deontay wilder videos, you know typing the exact same thing into my google search engine.
I get a bunch of uh released videos on a very serious bronze bomber, very chiseled, working out, uh and i’ll.
Tell you what he’s working on he’s working on? I guarantee this to stop the inside game.
If you will of tyson fury and deante while there doesn’t want to get pummeled again, so the thinking is, i’m told that deontay wilder needs to work on the body in order to deliver that wicked right.
Okay, now not all of his, not all of his knockouts have been delivered by that vicious right, but uh you could see in the training videos um that he’s being not taught.
He even said it himself.
He needs to break the old habits and the old habits he’s referring to is relying on that.
So no, very good, fury.
Pardon me praise and fury have the drug problem right well.
So this is the other thing that tyson fury said tyson fury said amen.
I wish i had gone to a mental health specialist about 10 years ago to deal with that, the drugs and alcohol, quite frankly because he went he went through managers like up and down like a yo-yo and training staff first for 10 audio now.
Finally, he if you will settle down now, i’m not so sure he has completely settled down, because there’s no way didn’t you see this last night just last year he was talking about the eight pints a day he was enjoying.
So you know that that in the bottle of bushmills, i believe i saw him drinking on uh on insta.
So but you know what you know, what truth be told getting up there in age yeah, you know, he’s he’s nearing the end of his career yeah.
When you hear box, you start talking about.
Oh, i only got this many fights left in me.
They’Re they’re, they’re.
Already mentally done right he’s mentally done.
You know it’s a lot of work to train for these fights.
You know what he’s young he wants to enjoy his money.
Uh, you know maybe buy a house and get out of the caravan just joking nice and respect to you.
You, you, six foot, nine monster.
If you google, it you’ll see the mansion that he’s wearing oh yeah.
No, this this guy’s got his whole family parked in the driveway.
What are you talking about all the travelers? Are there man they’re all there hanging out um honestly, i i and you know what they’re watching on television by the way me [ Laughter ].
I won’t even say it then yeah, but they’re watching here: they’re watching england um play ukraine uh for some final championship or something like that.
So they’re all sitting around the tv watching what we call soccer, they call football so he’s quite relaxed he’s quite in that uh mindset of i’m not gon na get stressed out about this particular fight upcoming.
I’M gon na eat right, i’m gon na work out.
I’Ve got lots of support around me.
I’M not doing any stupid stuff right now.
So that’s that’s! The deante wilder side is completely the opposite.
It’S like you know.
Every single video is him chiseled slapping away at his uh trainer and oh my gosh.
You know what, like honestly uh i’ll tell you i did.
I did come across the video.
I believe it was the stare down um that took place yesterday.
Hey man, deontay wilder’s, really really heated uh tyson fury seems to have gotten under his skin a bit uh and you know they had a little bit of a heated pushy match.
Uh at that face-off and uh wilder just yell.
He picked up fury man.
He just picked him up and like chucked him like, and you know what deontay wilder’s been planning this.
Since you know since day, one right he’s been playing since the last time they fought uh.
You know he got, he got, he got his.
He got his [ __ ] rocked he got knocked out.
We all know this uh, the first, the first fight you know i he didn’t win that either man.
In my opinion, he didn’t really win it either uh it could have went either way because i know fury was down on his back.
I believe twice in that fight in the first one right it could win either way and any ref would have any ref would have called the fight.
Quite frankly, i mean yeah, you know what yeah this uh, these guys, man, they they’ve got a they’ve, got a hate on for each other and uh.
It’S it’s making for some great entertainment man.
To be honest, like i sit and watch uh, you know these guys.
Honestly, i would love to see these guys sit down like they did on that trailer pay-per-view in, like uh, in like a smoking lounge at a nice oak table in some nice highback chairs, sipping brandy and talking [ __ ].
The way they do well guys yeah, like dancing fury, is like i’m going to you up like that’s it right he’s like i’m, going to f you up, while there’s like yo, i’m going to f you up, hey man, maybe double knock out first round the boxing World would lose their f in mind bro, oh my god.
The boxing world would lose their mind if that happened.
Deonte water is the underdog speaking of uh the betting world uh, yes uh, he is plus 240 and uh uh tyson is, i believe, minus 2.
is what the odds were yesterday when i checked yeah, so it’s cool, it’s gon na be a great fight.
Oh, yes, it’s going to be great if you’re, confident he will smash deontay wilder two bits uncertain of the next fight, though so these these are the headlines that we’re getting man.
You know it’s uh, it’s it’s! I i’m so excited man.
I can’t wait to watch this live and uh you know.
Have our have our people tune in and watch us watch it live.
I can’t wait.
We’Re gon na.
Do this watch party you guys, can all tune in watch us watch the fight.
It’S gon na get a little uh a little rowdy, so uh you can come join our party, it’s gon na be great man, so uh be on the lookout for that link to uh come come to you soon.
Man, if i have my way it’s gon na be a very short party, because deante wilder, as opposed to what you’re saying i believe, is gon na knock out tyson fury.
Well, you know what, if you’re getting 100 bucks you’re going to win 240.
yeah? I know they might.
Can i borrow well, you got to well.
You got to bet 230 to win 100.
That’S right! That’S right! Off of off of fury! Also some news, uh, there’s! There’S a gentleman on the card that uh that we’re gon na have in the studio next week as well, who’s on that card and he’s another up-and-coming big heavyweight, big baby.
