Yes, that’s right, the great white pipe light.
So this kid man has uh compiled a record of 17-0 with 10 knockouts in the cruiserweight division, um yo he’s from new zealand six one and a half this kid uh.
Definitely one to watch out for gon na be fighting.
May the 7th against anthony martinez – and this one is on u.
I believe it is going to be his us, his u.
s soil debut.
Actually, so i can’t wait to see this.
This is going to be a great fight.
Man, um, taking on anthony martinez who’s.
12 and 1, and oh right now, and this one’s going to be for the vacant wbo international cruiser title so guys, big, shot, big belt, uh, definitely danielle light.
He stiffly doesn’t punch his punch, light uh yeah, i mean knockouts, as you have in his 17 fights.
He has quite a few actually man.
10 out of the 17, are knockouts man at a 17 round.
You see sporting like a 60 here, man, 60 knockout rating uh.
You know cruiserweight cruiserweight division and we get to see him on home soil.
This kid also is part of peach boxing out of new zealand home of miyamoto, our uh, our female here that we’ve, you know, shown on this very very many times uh who we’ve interviewed on the show a few times and uh yeah.
This is one of our stablemates man coming out of new zealand there in uh in auckland, so it’s gon na be great man to see this kid in action uh.
What do you think about him? Um? Well, first of all, shout out to the people in the chat: sweet pete what up and uh sheila from atlanta what up? What up uh this guy david light.
Like i said man, he definitely doesn’t punch light.
He uh! I really like how he uses his jab and the the different way that he throws his right hand.
He doesn’t always throw it straight um.
He throws not not exactly a hook like basically wherever your head is that he’s just going to aim his arm in.
In that direction – and he has very good, very good accuracy with it um just watching his highlights from his last fight uh march 24th against trent uh broadhurst here, where he’s landing some good jabs um and like his jabs, are nice and straight and at full extension And he’s landing the right hand at different angles.
The only thing is he.
He got caught a couple times with a couple of stiff jabs where he made where it made his head snap back yeah.
That was the only the only really defensive flaw that i saw in him, but um yeah man that right hand comes from different angles, so definitely definitely um.
You know he competed in the men’s heavyweight division at the 2014 commonwealth games in glasgow, where he won silver medal against canada’s samara in el mess.
Yeah yeah yeah from windsor ontario he’s uh yeah.
The national team now yeah goodbye to the woods might like it right.
Yes, um, you know light is the current wbo oriental cruiserweight champion after defeating mark falling again by unanimous decision on march 18th and 2019, and uh he’s been holding that belt ever since man, david had reached the semifinals after knocking out malaysia’s um omar in the second Round of his first bout before defeating kenya’s um uh okaf in a unanimous decision, uh light joined a fellow boxer, david naika in bringing home a rare commonwealth games, boxing medals to new zealand.
The last time the two kiwi boxers returned from the commonwealth games, with both a gold and a silver medal, was in the perth commonwealth games in 1962.
So you know man, this guy said history, his amateur boxing titles, man, uh he’s the 2011 north island golden gloves.
Uh, you know champ uh, sorry made it to the semi-finals um new zealand national championship, uh new zealand, 2012 new zealand national championship 2013 2014 commonwealth games.
So the kid is no sludge when it comes to amateur records and amateur and amateur accolades.
But that’s all we’re talking about we’re talking about his pro ranks and, yes, he is going to be dying.
The old good old, u.
s soil man so he’s inviting the world to come and put on his skills.
What date is this and who’s he taking on again martinez? What’S the date again? Yes, this guy’s america’s anthony martinez, may the seventh 2022 this one.
What card is that’s the same date as i believe as uh.
Somebody big is fighting on that date.
I believe that might be uh boots, annis and castillo claim, or somebody i believe so, but it will not be on this card that this uh, these guys are heading up.
These guys are heading up this card.
Uh commission florida athletic commission is putting it on the promoter is uh lee margles of warrior boxing, so this one uh this one’s gon na be a good one.
Man so make sure you mark this date.
Your calendars guys anthony martinez 12-1-0, taking on david lighting 17-0 uh.
This one is going to be for the vacant.
Wbo international cruiser title so mark this one guys you’re not going to want to.
This is his first major title.
Um, obviously, he’s won a couple of titles before, but this the wbo is one of the you know, one of the ones that are actually recognized around the world.
So definitely a big big win for him if he pulls it out for both fighters.
If whoever wins it exactly man, you know 17, oh he’s ranked number five cruiserweight in the wbo current and you know in the wbo and he’s the current oriental uh cruiser champion plus he’s also the new zealand cruiserweight champ.

Yeah yeah, i think i realize uh with sweet, pea’s question how you feel about about mike t’s plane situation.
I wasn’t sure what you mean mike tyson’s playing situation and i’m assuming that’s uh.
That’S what it was.
Well, you know people want attention these days and that’s what that’s you know, that’s what those guys got in a heart.
Well, that’s what the guy got in a in a hard way: don’t don’t poke the bear yeah yeah! That is the entire lesson right here.
Don’T poke the bear yeah yeah? What are you trying to do? Yeah, yeah and people trying to say that you know he should have known better.
He was staying calm, the whole time he was just minding his own business.
He was on a plane.
So it’s like he’s not he could walk away.
Um yeah man he’s stuck in a tube of farts, yeah, yeah and there’s so many there’s so much harassment that you should be allowed to take like people shouldn’t be able to just come harass you just because just because that they know that they know that um.
You know as a trained friday, you’re not supposed to you’re, not supposed to you know, attack someone by just defending yourself.
You didn’t attack him.
He was defending himself minding his own business trying to relax, and you know people want to want to want to be on the internet.
Well, he was on the internet getting beat up.
So you know honestly he’s not also the king of the ring man he’s the king of the air now too right shout out to mike tyson for that wonderful display of punches on the plane.
That was awesome, definitely yeah.
Definitely he held back.
Let’S be real man that could have been a lot worse than it was yeah.
He just roughed him up a bit little school house school house play.
You know what i mean little schoolyard friend friend playing around that’s all it is.
It was nothing too big.
A major man, it could have been a lot worse.
Nothing is going to happen when it comes to that.
Just don’t poke the bear.
That’S that’s what you learned from this lesson: don’t poke the bear, even though the bear might be smoking weed.
It looks like he’s a little drowsy at times he’s just going he’s still on point.
The mirror still got it yo the bear still got it man so uh.
You better watch over that for sure uh.
