This is just one of the guys you’re gon na have to watch out for sure uh.
Sorry i was.
I was uh late because i was watching his highlights.
I was watching it and he is he lives up to that nickname of a wild because um, you know he he came out.
You know touch gloves and within a couple of seconds, he’s throwing bombs at his at his opponent yeah and he does have very heavy hands.
Man he’s a little bit wild with his defense too, because he got caught once or twice.
Yes, his wildness was a little bit more effective than his opponent to wildness.
Definitely definitely so he does.
He does fit the nickname and he is elusive.
He does have speed, um yeah, you know what, but this is one of these things.
He’S now got a great coach uh under you know, that’s backing him and his coach already sees.
You know that he does resemble the great prince that scene right there is that ability, if they can harness his defense – and you know, make him tighten up a little bit like our man, tim witherspoon, always says, and our boxing coach here cedric always says defense defense, Defense uh yeah.
He needs to work on it a little bit but guys we are going to see this kid man seriously.
Uh air q is putting all their you know all their best people behind him to move this kid up into championship.
Fights he’s fighting out of the philippines right now, right he’s not located in the states.
No, yes, one of his interviews, and it was all in uh yeah.
That’S what i mean so um.
I found a few articles on him and um.
You know he’s he’s.
He had a highly respected amateur career.
I wasn’t able to find the digits on it uh.
You know i’ve been reading through articles um for for a while now trying to find something on it.
Uh i’ve only translated.
So many but yes the kid he does.
He does live up to his name um.
You know he is a very elusive fighter, he’s very fast, he’s very wild and he’s a heavy hitter for such a small guy at 120.
Pounds, like you know the heavyweights take shit’s, that big and for this guy and for this guy to pack the kind of power that he has.
He definitely has some raw talent and uh that raw talent has gotten this far and now that he’s got uh.
Some good coaching behind him.
I think we’re gon na see him in the future.
Man, and i mean not too not too long.
I you know, i suspect we might see him on an undercard by the end of the next year end of this year.
I’M sorry or the beginning of next year.
We should see this kid on an undercard on one of these big big name fights now um.
What’S the name of the promotion that he’s on there right now, he’s under arq? Is that a filipino that’s, a philippine company? I’M assuming i don’t know what is obviously we don’t know what his contract is, but um again, just judging by his fighting style and um, you know crowd-pleasing style.
I’M sure one of the big promotional companies will want to pick him up just to put him on an undercard to to get the crowd warmed up, what weight class is he again, sir uh he he well he’s his last fight was at 120, but you know With uh, with with the size of him and all that, realistically you know he could he could.
He could end up going up and wait.
