What up talking fight fans, thanks for tuning in to today’s episode of knuckle up with mike orr and cedric ben in the den you know what we’re doing we’re talking about some filipino boxers that you need to be on the lookout for man and uh.
Yesterday we kicked off the week and today we got another good one for you, um and that is in the man of charlie saurez, guys uh.
I don’t know if you know about this kid.
Well, not really a kid.
I’M going to call this one, a man because he is older, he did get off to a late start in his professional career, but a highly decorated, amateur uh, this guy 10-0 7 kos in the super feather division.
If you guys don’t know, that’s uh, that’s pretty light guys it’s about 130 135 pounds so he’s right.
Second, at a 36 in the philippines, 72nd out of 15 30 in the world, and this 33 year old is five five and a half and packs a serious punch at 130, with seven knockouts um, guys he’s uh back in action coming up june, the 10th and Again august the 7th so be on the lookout to watch this kid.
Who is the wba champ um off his last fight? He is now the wba uh asian super feather title champion and uh.
That’S coming off a 12 round, tko deep at the end of it.
Against uh his countryman uh mangubot uh, which is a great fight cedric.
I know you’re, probably watching this one, this one’s uh, the uppercut from around the world that everybody’s talking about this vicious must-see uppercut that he literally almost takes this guy’s head off.
What a great fight guys, if you haven’t seen it uh, just google, the full fight check it out on youtube man.
They actually open up the video with a slow-mo of this uppercut, it’s great to see! Cedric! You want to! You want to talk about him.
A little bit yeah yeah yeah, i actually i missed that uppercut but uh.
What i’ve been watching is um his fight with vasily lomachenko, and this was in the world series of boxing and it’s one of the reasons why he uh.
He he’s he’s young in his as far as number of fights, but he’s a little bit older at age.
Because um, you know when you’re fighting that world series of boxing you it doesn’t count towards your professional record, even though it’s you’re fighting with no headgear um, and it doesn’t count towards your amateur record either.
So that’s the weird thing about that, but anyway uh i was very interested.
He has a couple of nice videos up there, but i was really interested in watching this fight with the lava chance.
The distance uh lomachenko won, but uh suarez was in there.
The whole time and he’s very um he’s orthodox in his approach like like he’ll, like he’ll, throw lead power punches like he’ll, throw a lead, hard straight right hand or a lead hard left hook from his orthodox stance.
Um and like i said, even though, even though lomachenko won this fight, uh uh um suarez was right in there with his with his unorthodox style.
Yes, that works for him.
You know i’ll tell you.
The philippines has always been uh regarded as an assembly line for raw, yet exciting boxing talent and the quest to find the next pac-man, if at all possible, is an irresistible one.
But there is an already abundance of world-class boxers in the very lightest weight classes, but not much serious conversation about heavier division fighters.
Charlie charez is the latest to throw his hat into the ring.
He is the philippines most decorated amateur uh.
This super feather uh has already fought and beaten most of the world’s top boxers in the three-round format.
Uh his skills are sublime, but even more impressively, sarez shows the attributes that will likely make him even more dominant for us in these professions.
In the professional arenas – and you know this fighter – who hails from a very small island or the very same island as many pacquiao shares and a tribute bestowed upon the famous senator – he can really bang guys this kid can really bang uh vsp boxing promotions is uh In vietnam, we’re quick to sign this rising star and most oh, oh, my bad sorry, i just turned on to the uppercut, highlight i apologize sorry for interrupting you out there no problem, so they were quick to sign this rising star and you know curve his path To the world rankings uh, you know, look looks assured, you know.
The caliber of sores is undeniable and uh can be scaled to a performance against lomachenko many years ago, uh.
Well as the philippines, youngest youngster was still honing his craft.
He was asked to fight lomo on three days noticed and he declined.
He had an injury to his shoulder and was not able to raise his arm.
He was told that they could not replace him, so he accepted that match and decided to do his best.
He made a plan, he made the plan to counter his counter and, as it was very hard for him for him to attack and maintain a strong defense, so was um.
Lomachenko won the boat, but many were so impressed by the confidence shiraz showing uh.
They were already declaring him a future uh world star man and, honestly he would love he in quotes.
I would love to fight loma again he’s a really smart boxer, but i know that i have improved so much since we last met in the ring.
The outcome would definitely be different, so this kid also um has been cr.
You know he’s been named um the boxer of march, the box of the month by the wba world, boxing association, congratulating its wba super feather champion, uh for being promoted by his country army.
After winning the title on monday, a promotion ceremony was held for sirez, who is a member of the army and was promoted from reverse sergeant to staff sergeant and he’s affiliated with the 1303rd reserve command community defense center capital, uh region, regional community, defense group and uh.
The promotion was directly related to service becoming the wba regional champion off that last fight.
A proud accomplishment for the body serez was also named fighter of the month by the wba asia.
Thanks to his 12th round technical knockout win over tom june mangabot uh last march of the 12th, you know um his trainer army reservist first lieutenant delphon willis, who was an important part of his achievement, also attended that promotion ceremony guys and uh.
Honestly, you got ta be on the lookout for this kid he’s gon na be back in the in the ring soon enough man, you know this 33 year old fighter only turned pro in 2019 and is in no rush to hunt for world title in a stacked.
130, pound division that includes reigning wbc, champion oscar valdez of mexico, usa, has fought and defeated in the amateurs, so has been in there with these world-class champions and he has beaten them in these amateur.
You know amateur uh ranks.
You know the three rounds doing it.

You know he’s laid into the game at 33, very highly decorated, amateur you know, he’s got the speed he’s got the ring.
Iq he’s got the defense; he definitely has the power man and honestly, it’s a recipe for world champion.
So you know what they say: they’re looking for the next manny pack, i’m not saying that this guy is the next pac-man, but he damn near could be close enough to it.
Um you know center.
What do you want to say after that vicious uppercut? You just watched yeah, yeah, yeah um, i’m not sure how much time he got left at 33 years old, almost time he got left to catch up to pacquiao’s resume.
But but i see what you’re saying about his explosiveness and his exciting crowd-pleasing style.
He could definitely make a a name for himself and some good money in the next couple of years.
