Sorry about that here we go.
We had a great uh episode.
Yesterday, live featuring, mazzy out of new york and uh.
Today, we’re gon na profile, another knockout artist and holy crap.
It must be four o’clock cause someone’s phoning me.
Sorry! I do this every time then i’m like and we laughed about it yesterday before the show and you promised it would never happen again – yeah yeah.
Unfortunately it happened.
Sorry guys, can you can you please tell your mom that you’re on the air before it was funny.
It probably it probably is my michael: will you, will you comb your beard mike your beard, your beard’s, not cold.
Please, please, do it uh all right, let’s see who we got today, who we got today, who we got today? Okay, what knockouts you possibly dreamed up today? I have not dreamed of this one.
It’S it’s edward burlanga! Everybody knows about this.
Guy he’s he’s on everybody’s radar right now, this kid, let’s just honestly amateur record of 162 and seventeen, he debuted april 29, 2016.
, and now this kid he’s just he’s: he’s 16 and oh 16 knockouts.
But here’s the best part he’s only ever fought.
All 16 knockouts have come have come within the first three minutes, which is incredible.
I love watching this kid fight.
Actually, graham, we have a clip of one of his knockouts and we’re gon na cue it up and we’re gon na watch it right now.
You’Re gon na visit play by play yeah.
Well, no, i’m not gon na.
Have it last three seconds it speaks for itself.
Really it really does all right here it is.
I was about to ask: is he the guy in the red shorts he’s he’s? Not the commander he’s not the guy on the ground yeah.
So this is.
This is fighting against boots when in the bubble, first, first fight in the bubble july 21st.
So that was this – that was the 14th ko in the first round.
Look at that look at the sheer power.
This kid has man talk about heavy-handed, okay, this guy this guy.
This is what i love he’s he’s scheduled to fight next month april 24th, against uh demon nicholson, so he’s going to be going for his 17th consecutive knockout and he swears.
He swears okay, he swears he’s not trying to do this.
It’S just it’s happening.
He’S he’s a precise he’s poised and he places his shots.
Well, you know he picks his shots.
Well, he places him well, but the kid’s got rocks for fists man.
He’S he’s heavy-handed like you know, he’s he’s uh he’s a super middleweight.
He’S 6-1 he’s got a 73-inch reach.
You know the kids just he’s unbelievable man uh, you know as a youth.
He had uh 2013 reno bronze uh, the gold in 2015 at the reno for the youth national championship.
Uh, you know he’s a silver medalist from the junior national championships um in the us and he’s also the silver medalist from the us national pal junior championship.
So you know we had a highly decorated amateur career and now this kid’s coming in here and he’s just destroying people.
It’S actually at the point now, where fighters are starting to ask for more money to get in the ring with them, because they’re they’re, afraid of a man like the kids, just got the power man – and you know it’s it’s fun – to see this kid.
But you know box, even though it’s you know only a few seconds most of his fights right, like his entire.
His entire career as a pro he’s, only got 16 rounds.
Man like how you know, that’s very impressive.
You know and honestly top rank top rank uh their staples are deep man uh.
He you know his uh he’s got his strength and condition and conditioning coach is dave, hung and uh.
He is trained by his uncle dre uh andre uh rosier uh rose um.
So you know he’s got a great team behind him and we get to see him and he’s coming up soon.
Usually we don’t know with a you know: coven last year happening and we’re starting to open up around the world.
Now we now are starting to see the fights that we want to see these guys.
You know we have no idea what they’re going to fight this guy’s scheduled to fight next month, guys make sure you check them out in the meantime.
Take your time.
It’S not going to take a long time just go watch all these fights.
Don’T even watch the highlight reels, but you don’t need to watch the highlight reels.
Literally his fights three minutes.
That’S all you need to do just go.
Watch his fights.
It’S not going to take you a long time, trust me and then you’re going to want to be watching this kid in april.
Graham that knockout was brilliant man that kid’s got heavy hands.
Every single knockout is like the same, just guys, crippling under under the strength of this kid.
The only thing is is that he said you know like we have yet to seen his real true skill set, though that’s another big thing is you know, as a fighter you’re only going 16.
You know 16 rounds, 16 fights you’re only fighting for three minutes.
Yes, he does say that, because his fights aren’t lasting as long, he does more sparring time in the gym to try to make up for it.
But let’s, let’s be real man, there’s sparring in the gym versus actually being in the ring.
They’Re two different elements: sure you can try and make up for it, but really are you making up for it? Another thing is yeah man.
I don’t think you were gon na see him uh lose anytime soon.
I believe he’s uh shooting after a record um.
It remains like honestly, there are a few guys who have done this in their career uh.
He he’s actually chasing right now: ali rabbi’s record of 21 consecutive first round knockouts and uh to start his pro career uh, tyrone brunson did it in uh, nine uh, 19 consecutive fights and the late edwin valero in he’s third on the list, and he did that With 18.
, so he’s chasing this record, he’s literally on the doorstep right now of uh hitting you know the third that third record man and uh taking taking that position, and you know what realistically he’s not you know he’s not far off of uh hitting that 21 And you know we can see, we can see if it’ll happen and – and the thing is, is that people are going to want to watch this kid a lot and not only to see him knock out, but to see him get knocked out right.
It’S there’s always that thing too there’s always there’s always people playing both sides, there’s the guys that want to hey man, i’m in it to see this kid keep going, keep going, and then you have those guys and you’re like when the hell is this king gon Na lose or when the hell is he gon na get past the first round.
You know so he’s he’s making a big name for himself.
You know top rank, you guys did a wonderful thing grabbing.
This guy he’s had a brooklyn new york.
You know, i believe, he’s a puerto rican native and uh.
You know he.
He just embraces everything about his culture and and his hometown, and you know he’s a great representative for the us and uh yo man he’s an excellent prospect.
Uh, you know bob bob.
What are you doing bud like you, you’re killing it with these uh these prospects? Man, honestly, i i don’t know i i think i think right now that uh top rank top rate might have the the stacked stable at the moment, with all the new prospects, uh yeah, honestly, graham mike or guys, watching, check them out.
Edgar verlanga make sure you watch him in april, kid’s wicked.
Honestly that clip was his.
You know this is 14th fight, guys go back watch it all just check it out, you’re going to love watching these these first round knockouts man – i i laugh at some of them.
Some of them are pretty you know pretty hysterical to watch these guys get smoked.
