Definitely definitely what made it, what made the knockout uh extra good! First of all, i love it.
I love how she keeps um keeps himself at full extension, uh, full extension of his long straight punches um.
He landed that right hand.
The initial right hand that he landed right before he landed it.
He actually got caught with a with uh, with a right hook from his opponent yeah.
That shows that he has a good chin, yeah um he so he took this shot and then gave one back like at the same reflex – and i mean like straight like a very, very straight shot pinpoint accuracy, and it really goes to show that he does have A hammer for a right hand: man.
He definitely definitely smacked it man.
Oh sorry, we forgot to knock out graham there for a second yeah.
There we go so uh yeah.
We talked about men, uh yeah.
I noticed i was a little smaller but yeah.
You know this kid does have a thunderous right hand.
Um, honestly man, bob abram has been signing.

He made his top-ranked debut on the weekend, which was great man uh.
You know she started boxing at the age of eight years old in uh fire in the ring boxing club in san francisco under head trainer, miguel rios who is still in his corner today, which is you know? Sometimes that doesn’t happen when you move from the amateurs you know to the pros, but miguel rios is still in this guy’s corner uh.
You know, as he was preparing for this march, 4th battle um in south florida along he was.
He was, you know: training alongside undefeated junior middleweight, phenom, xander zeus.
Now guys, if you were watching that fight on the weekend, you could see xander’s ass, who was prospect of the year last year, standing on the outside really cheering on uh.

He was the olympic team uh trials for boxing.
He was third, so you know when his uh, when his dreams of you know olympic gold kind of disappeared, he set his sights on.
You know the paid ranks man.
He made his professional debut last october in fresno, where he knocked out uh luciano ramos in the fourth round uh and you know, as an amateur he’s, defeated numerous top names as as uh he’s just quick you’re.
Just talking about his debut last year against um against ramos yeah, that’s the highlight.
That’S the highlight that i got on my on my laptop right here.
Yeah, let’s talk about it.
Let’S talk about um talk about the highlight because it adds on as going back to the ko and then talking about the fight it you know it just shows.
You know he definitely has a you know.
I’M always talking about guys that use their reach to have an educated jab, just because there’s a lot of boxes that that might have a long reach, but just because you have a long reach doesn’t mean that uh that you know how to use it.
A lot of guys with a long read, don’t know how to use it.
Um charlie, she he definitely has an educated jab keeps it at full extension.
You know against ramos, he uh he’s landing a lot of the straight crosses and then coming back to last saturday when he had his uh his knockout.
It wasn’t a one punch knockout, but those right hands were laser and they were just you know, landing right on the target and you know referee had to jump in to stop the fight because uh when it continued.
So i’m predicting.
You know this.
That’S going to be his is his main thing as he continues that how perfect he throws that that that one, two straight straight across you know and talk about it.
Man like it’s, it’s really nice to see when uh, when you have a guy who’s.
Just in the hit in the pro ranks, uh able to use that educated, jab and – and you know, set it – use it to set up those brilliant rights.
Man, uh honestly, miguel ramos uh, you know, he’s a he’s: a well-renowned uh trainer and uh.
It goes to show you man that people coming out of that stable uh definitely have some education in the ring.
Man uh great ring, iq uh.
You know bob abram said i quote: we’ve had our eyes on charlie since his amateur days and we believe he is a young man with the potential to bring the championship back uh championship boxing back to the bay area.

But i just know i just you know i can just tell man this guy.
I love the way he throws that that straight cross i mean it see.
It sounds pretty simple.
It’S pretty elementary.
It’S just a one.
Two any person walking off the street can learn how to throw one too.
But it’s it’s it’s.
You know it’s everything else that comes with it.
Are you doing it at full extension? Are you doing it at the right time? Are you accurate with it um?
