Oh, my God, [ Music ].
What up talking fight fans thanks for tuning in to today’s episode of knuckle up? If yours truly Mike Orr and my man Cedric Ben, do you know what we do best baby prospects? You know what it is.
We are talking about.
A good one today, with a sensational first round knockout this weekend, we’re talking about a man named Gary Kelly.
I I had to profile today, man after this weekend, I had to profile them.
It was time to let you people know to watch this.
Trust me: he right now is supporting a record of 15-0 with nine Knockouts in that light Division and this 26 year old, who goes by the diva, is the South Park.
We stand in six three he’s ranked number one out of three in Ireland: 23 out of 20.
You said his nickname is the Diva yeah but interesting, interesting yeah.
You know the story behind that.
No, but you know what we’ll get him on the show and ask him how about that.
We should right: it’s uh, it’s yeah! So you know what he’s coming off a great phenomenal.
First round: TKO win over uh belmidi uh on the 29th man at Wembley Arena.
It took just 35 seconds folks, 35 seconds, the meeting down from a left to the Head prior to that stoppage out, like a light man, oh like a light uh, you know he’s an Irish professional but um.
I was a very that that the straight left that he landed for that one punch knockout.
I watched that fight, so I went back to watch some of the other fights and monsters fight with Vasquez uh seven from seven months ago, and he also dropped him with a straight left right down the middle.
So that shows that he’s accurate with his uh in his softball stance with that cross body shot.
Definitely definitely man um.
You know it just took 35 seconds to take out the previously undefeated French fighter, dalmidi uh, you know without breaking a sweat the fight at Wembley Arena on the undercut of the Katie Taylor, Undisputed light weight World title defense again, carabelle was meant to be a test Of sorts, so you know, Kali was favored uh even expected to win, especially considering uh.
He stopped the former world champion Miguel Vasquez last time out, but the French fighter was at a very least meant to bring um Kelly.
You know to to the star rounds man.
It was, it was meant to go the distance.
You know it was meant to test this kid uh that wasn’t the case in the end.
Um as Kelly got the job in the super.
You know he got in another job, super quick, it was.
It was over in just a few seconds in this last fight you sang this was supposed to be a test for me um.
You know the undefeated Frenchman Bell.
Media was supposed to bring him into the star rounds.
He was supposed to be brought into those later rounds and, unfortunately that is not what happened uh, as you guys seen this fight.
If you haven’t, I urge you to go out and watch this.
You know in just over half a minute man, the diva punish uh, the Moroccan, Bombardier uh, for his early aggression, with a beautiful time to one two, the left hand landed clean, uh and the former French Champion visited the canvas he rose to Bambi legs man and The referee was forced to step in and call a halt to what turned out to be a sensational first round fight as a matchroom boxer, because don’t forget um Kelly was originally signed to mtk Global um, and you know we all know what happened with that.
It’S unfortunate what happened with it but um.
You know what he’s now uh he’s now signed up to Ed, yearn man and uh he’s under Eddie, Hearns label and Eddie Hearn has, you know, definitely got the right right setup for this kid uh.
Definitely they’re gon na be getting behind him, pushing him real, good and uh yeah man.
Look at this.
You know, like he’s a long limb kid who knows what he’s doing man um you know Gary Kelly believes he is now well placed to fill the Bernard Dune sized hole left in the heart of double unboxing.
For over a decade now, uh the Divas eyeing up big arena fight nights, uh the venue he used to populate as a fan when it was called the point uh and was home to the amazing done uh topped cards.
Now that he has teamed up with matchroom uh, the fact that Bernard done days are discussed in rueful rather than celebratory terms among fight fans proves just how far boxing outside of a thriving Belfast has been distant from the big time since the Dub’s retirement uh.
The fight game in the mainstream are no longer bed fellows and, besides some star names who fight in Belfast or abroad, neither the Casual fan nor big media have been fluttering eyelids, the way uh of their Fighters.
So you know he believes, he’s the uh he’s that next guy man, he believes, he’s that next Irish guy to fill those shoes, man and uh.
You know what guys believe me this kid’s, the real deal he’s got the power man.
He knows how to use his distance he’s setting up with that one tomb and like if you guys haven’t seen it go back and watch this kid he was supposed to you know this was supposed to be a little bit of a step up fight for him.
He was supposed to be brought into those later rounds.
He was supposed to be tested, but what did he do? He just walked through the competition and proved you know that he’s on a different level.
Man and honestly, this is a big fight.
That left was serious.
Man that left was serious and the only reason why it wasn’t our winner of The Knockout of the week.
Man is just because of the technical aspects of robis’s uh Narco, and that’s the reason why me and you picked robisi over him for The Knockout of the week, not that this kid did not deserve it, because definitely he deserved it uh.
You know that one too was disgusting.
Cedric, let’s talk about it.
Let’S talk about it, uh, very good, lateral movement! That’S what I noticed about uh Kelly, very good, lateral movement, he’s very elusive with his with his tall tall long body, and you don’t see him get caught against the ropes a lot um.
So that’s why? I think that’s.
Why he’s able to catch guys walking into a straight cross um in that last fight? He was moving around very good um homeboy thought that he caught him in the corner and tried to come lunging in and and Coley just caught him caught him walking.
You know caught him coming in with that straight left, right on the chin, accurate, not just anywhere on the face, but it was right on the chin and, like I said in this last fight that I was watching him, do he landed that same punch too.
So any any Fighters that plan on fighting this guy make sure you better make sure you’re heading on point um, because he’s gon na catch you he’s going to catch you at some point coming in with that straight left, like like believe me, he’s being he’s being Tested in his last three outings man um, you know his last three outings, every single fighter he’s been in front of has had a winning record more than him like a higher winning record.
More ring experience like his last time out.
He took he took out Miguel Vasquez in five rounds with the Narco Vasquez was cut over the left eye down once in the third round and then ko’d by the one.
Two combination that he just can’t own Bell: Media with uh.
Before that he was out against viral science uh, I think Simmons yeah Simon uh.
He was 22-5 uh.
You know again and then cully’s stepping into that man.
So they’ve been testing.
This kid he’s definitely one to watch out for um.
You know he does have a really really long reach.
That’S what that’s what I love about it, man that one too is coming from.
You know it’s coming from next door.
Let me real, you know what I mean.
Some people say some of the you know those uppercuts are coming from downstairs.
This guy’s left coming from next door.
You know it’s it’s huge.
These are Big Shots.
Sometimes he doesn’t even set it up with a job she’ll, just throw that straight left like the one that he that he stopped the guy yeah.
He just threw that straight left right off the bat, which means it has to be a perfectly straight line.
It can be loopy, you got to make sure you turn your hip and pivot, your your back foot to put the weight onto the front leg, to get the most amount of power at full extension, and you know you guys have seen him do that consistently.
So we’ll see if he can continue to do this as he increases in the competition level, definitely well guys.
You know what it is.
Man happy Halloween to everybody around the world.
Go out, get your damn candy tonight! Well, we get back to work because we got work to do tomorrow.
