Uh, honestly, i haven’t heard too, like we’ve been having a little trouble finding some stuff on his amateur career and uh.
You know where what his background is, but this young kid out of detroit right now: uh been training with sugar hill uh.
You know he’s had some great fights coming off of a great tko in the third round over malik calhoun uh back on the uh november 19th 2021 southern junction nightclub, irving uh, was a great fight man.
Definitely, if you haven’t seen it, you guys got ta check that fight out also his uh pro debut against ricky evans, uh first round ko man, time 143 uh another another promising young man here to uh to watch man.

Let’S talk about him, let’s talk about uh, you know his ability here, uh and and what you think that this kid can do in the future.
Man yeah yeah well, like you, said, there’s not too much uh footage on him as i watch him drop his opponent here around.
He fought his southpaw uh.
We could tell he’s smart, even though there’s not much to to to look up on his amateur stuff, and he just started his pro career yeah.
You could tell he’s very smart um.
He came out against mr calhoun, who was a southpaw who was 2-0.
I believe with two i don’t know, i believe, with two knockouts anyway: 2-0 with two knockouts and the guy and he’s the southpaw so um devel smith has an orthodoxy, came in trying to throw lots of right hands towards the southpaw and uh.
He was very successful.
He dropped him in the first round and then in the second round, landed another big right hand when he was off when he was coming off the ropes and dropped him.
So you know you could tell he’s uh.
You know he’s he’s boxing educated.
Definitely interesting to follow his career.
We will be following his career uh guys.
We have some video that we’ve queued up, that we’re going to show you uh.
This is him training in detroit, getting ready for may 26 detroit brawl and uh.
You know he’s uh he’s in the ring and he’s being talked to by you know, he’s being watched and coached by none other than sugar hill, so we’re gon na uh we’re gon na get that underway, uh so roll that video, please yeah man, just preparation, sparring And he fights you know some guys, um fight different than the way they they spar he’s in the green yep blue helmet at the in the green shirt, using from a distance, maybe a little bit more head movement.
He gets caught with a little uh with a with a few straight punches here.
Definitely i’m enjoying the way that he is doubling up on that jab, really using it uh and then and then you know really really playing the levels there.
With the right hand, finish uh he’s letting his hands go freely.
Uh, you know, he’s not afraid to get hit man, so you see him getting in there.
He uh he is taking a little bit of damage a little bit.
It’S just the is just the the the the two jabs that he got caught with.
He just got cut with a good jab right there, but other than that um, you know he’s keeping his hands up on the inside there.
You know punching punching his way out using his reach full at full extension.
Um missed that one there every once in a while, throwing the the the left hook to the body yeah.
He was successful at towards the end as he’s working, the body high low high low high low high low i’m loving it, i’m loving the way that he’s bringing the hands right back to the chin.
There’S no laziness about it.
You know he’s not dropping them.
You know with fatigue uh.
This is this is after a day of sparring, really you know and uh it can show that uh he’s he’s gon na do well.
Man he’s punishing that body.
He’S going to town he’s wearing him down he’s setting every everything up using that jab three good body shots.
