We got some definite great knockouts, so that happened.
Uh we’re definitely gon na talk about those but um our winner.
Our winner, definitely are definitely is um is off the card.
Man, um, vargas, vargas and uh zephidia.
Like i think it’s pronounced the beta zepeda, maybe yes, it sounds cool is the pain that sounds cool, yeah zepeda sounds good enough.
Yeah actually sounds good, but what? What a first round finish? Tko knockout, whatever they called it, but uh wow.
I know i know it felt um even more special for versus for sepeda because, as we said before, um for those of you that saw the weigh-ins you know it does happen once in a while, but uh this one really got uh got heated because it wasn’t Just the fighters, it was both like the both sides of both camps got into it um and uh, so yeah yeah.
So i know they’re both and the funny thing is, with the actual, the punch that that started off that, first of all, the way he landed.
It was a perfect full extension, jab, perfect, full extension cross and right accuracy, yo yo the and you know what he was walking into it too.
Yes, exactly walking into it, which uh you know added that actor a little bit of force.
I mean i thought i thought he was gon na be sitting in the judge’s lap.
You know trying to throw the same punch at the same time, yeah yeah and it’s just uh, just good to show you that little bit of reach uh advantage.
I guess yeah that jab and because that first jab, what the first job did was just turn his head a little bit.
So he didn’t even see that cross coming by the time he turned his head back around.
You know, honestly, honestly, it put him it put him away.
He put him away in a nice fashion, he did um, i mean he did get up, but he was finished off 10 seconds later.
So, even though, even though the the initial punch wasn’t the knock out of the week, it was so perfect, and so you know the perfect [ __ ], i’m watching it right now, as you speak, you know what it’s just a one, two, a one two, you Know that jab that vicious dish is left and he just drops him just drops yeah yeah and he’s just like honestly wow what a shot, what a knockout loving it he’s the winner of our knockout of the week for sure, and i believe, i’m not sure if We were doing this when uh, when, when zapata – no – probably not because this was like last year – zepeda fought baron check and that was um.
I’M pretty sure that was a 2020 well.
Everyone has their own fight of the year thing, but that was one of the most uh common for everyone to agree that that was the fight of the year so uh last year he got the fight of the year and it looks like this year so far.
We still got a couple months to go this year.
He has the knockout of the year.
So honestly it was.
It was great man uh.
What a good card, though that was put together, uh shout out to uh casir mazzy goldston uh.
You know, friend, of the talk and fight family.
We’Ve had him on here uh in an interview he just agreed to porno with a wonderful unanimous decision over mark mizura and uh can’t wait to get him in the studio.
So we can talk to him about that.
Uh jahi tucker also another prospect that i’ve that i’ve been following uh in his career man.
He now improves to uh five and all with the tko in the second round at 219, over um george sosa um, so yeah man, these these young, these young and overcomers man, i’m i’m loving the men they’re performing you know, they’re doing it in in a great Fashion man they’re doing it big, you know unanimous decision, you you’re convincing the judges that you’re the man at that point.
You know and uh these tkos and kos men with all these young guys also on that card man, carlos carabello, lost to jonas sultan.
In a unanimous decision it was unfortunate, but um he’s now he’s now going to blemish on his record, but it happens.
You can’t can’t can’t always be perfect.
Can we this was on last night’s card or a friday uh.
This is on last night: okay, yeah man, um yeah, we were we were.
We were doing the other card, while this card was going on: okay, okay, so um yeah.
So shout out to our our winner, though uh jose zapita.
Now the wbc silver super light title champ, so jose vargas, uh, it’s unfortunate man that um, you got your [ __ ] slapped, but you did to be honest.
What a great fight, though man uh, goes to show you man that um, that those little brawls that happen can throw a fighter off, okay, they can and and throwing throwing you off by making you fight angry.
Yes, it’s almost like people that get right like a road rage.
Yeah, your roadway is not gon na make you drive any better.
Oh my god, i’m gon na get them yeah.
You know what you know.
What you got.
You got a mouthful.
You got a mouthful of gloves and a nap that that that extra animosity he had from uh from the weigh-ins you know he really want to put everything he had into his punch, and you know when you’re more tense.
It makes you just a split second slower.
You know it doesn’t flow as fast or so that might have been the difference right.
There guys go back and watch it you’re going to love it um.
I’M sure we’ll put the link to the to the clip uh in our comments but uh.
Let’S talk about the other card man, the other card was big man um we did our watching our watching live attack and fight um.
You know we watched the uh, the wonderful jiren innis, with the spectacular first round tko of thomas de la moray, yeah yeah yeah.
I said um, you know before the fight i kind of gave two predictions.
I said this is either going to be a um, a tough 12-round battle for for dennis to win, or this was going to be a spectacular, knockout um and it was the the second one, the spectacular knockout and the reason why i said that is because the Lord makes a tough mother effort, he does get knocked down, but he usually gets up and uh and keeps going um.
So for him not to be able to continue out of this was the first round too.
First round yeah um time was 149 and he got dropped.
He got dropped, he got up twice, yeah yeah and he actually, he actually fought back.
As i predicted.
He actually fought back uh um and actually landed two good right hands on ennis and this switched to southpaw.
He landed two good right hands and – and it’s just put him to sleep after that – and it’s made quick work man – i i don’t even believe there was 20 punches, total thrown in the whole fight uh, probably not just the punches that i landed on, probably not, But uh yo ennis now improves to 28 no um big thanks man on the horizon for him for sure.
Uh big upset, though, had to be uh the jamal james, oh yeah yeah.
Well, i don’t know again i do my best to follow uh.
Sorry, the cat’s trying to get out the door here i do my best to uh to keep up with um with you know, as many boxes as possible.
There’S like 3 000 boxes per weight class.
So sometimes it’s hard, so his opponent bootayev um kind of slipped out of my radar.
I never even heard of this guy before randy put me on to him and said that uh that he’s that he’s very tough and um and was gon na give jamal james uh some trouble.
So i you know – and he was exactly right because he definitely was on james all night long.
They wouldn’t give him a break.
James is one of those one of those tall fighters that does not take advantage of his reach.
No man, he had a seven inch.
Seven inch reach advantage last night if he looks like a small again.
He looked like the smaller man at some points.
When he came in and played the inside, he stayed on the inside too much and um.
You know sure he’s got those wonderful.
He does have those wonderful inside uppercuts um, you know he does work the body, but it’s just bhutan had his number last night, man yeah.
He wouldn’t let him breathe, uh kept attacking the body and – and i mean with not not small shots – either man.
They were some vicious body, shots yeah yeah, and you know you could tell by the end of that fight man um.
I i a lot of people thought.
Maybe it was an early stoppage, but there was no.
There was no complaining exactly that’s why i always say if, when the referee stops the fight, if the fighter that got stopped is not really complaining that much, then then you go yeah and you know and the champ the champ wasn’t complaining.
He wasn’t complaining.
Uh he had enough man, he was, he was ready to go back and you know cry.
I don’t know, i don’t know about cry.
Don’T vote from those body shots.
Are you kidding me man? No, those body shots yo.
He making a bowel movement for a week after that, honestly yo.
He took some.
He took some nasty body, shots um bhutan, definitely stuck to his game plan man and he shut it down.
You know i every time there was a a breakup between the two guys from the ref.
You know: hey guys, let’s leave the exchange, it was.
It was right away right, away, close the gap in on him.
Staying on the inside attacked the body.
You know that left last night, man that left last night had an imprint had an imprint on on james’s midsection man, yeah yeah.
Definitely and honestly, there was there was a time there.
I think we counted.
I think we counted at least four unanswered body shots like one after another digging deeper and deeper each shot.
Exactly is exactly what you just said: digging deeper and deeper those body shots.
The way they accumulate over time is just like you know, chopping down a big tree.
You know one one chop is not gon na do it, but if you keep chopping and chopping, it’s getting the cuts, get deeper and deeper and deeper, and the more you get hit with a body shot, especially in the same spot over and over again yeah man.
This resistance gets lower shots like that man.
You can’t take repeated shots like that without damaging the insides.
You know i’m telling you that guy’s gon na sneeze today and hurt on the inside i’m telling you i’m telling you good luck.
You know honestly uh what what a great event last night that we had, though the watching live party uh thanks for everybody who supported us and joined into the festivities and uh, you know watched us watch the fight watch along with us.

We got ta try to get him on because we got ta because again he’s you know how many people can say that, like consecutive years, it’s one thing to to you know yeah, but the consecutive years he was.
He had the last year to knock the fight of the year in which uh he dropped.
His opponent uh, like i think, four or five times he got, dropped like two or three times himself too, but he and the way he finished him off was a spectacular ko2 and then last night he has the ko of the year.

We’Re gon na start watching some of these ones and bringing them back into our minds.
Man, because there are some good ones in the past, there are some that are happening every week, so guys make sure you tune in next weekend.
Saturday watching live on talk and fight man.
We hit it up november, 6th, doing a big and it’s canelo plant.
Hopefully, we’ll be on for a few more hours than we were last night.
Get it get those views up.
Man definitely definitely get those chats going.
Honestly last night was really good.
Half the room was decided man.
It was uh made for good content, yeah yeah, good time, man uh.
We appreciate it lots, but it’s in the comments make sure you uh people make sure you you know.
Add your add your comments in the in the chat section or whatever.
We’Ll do our best to interact it’s kind of hard, sometimes to pay attention to the chat and watch the same thing.
Why there’s that’s! Why there’s two of us, so we can at least at least function properly as a unit chris baxter.
What do you think about nico ali walsh, honestly chris um, i talked about him last week.
I did a special on him.
You can check that dot com, uh nico ali walsh.
We did a special on him.
Uh yeah yeah go ahead.
You said you know what he’s he’s still new into the game, but he’s shown a lot of potential um.
You know he is showing those novice.
Those novice moves still taking too much damage on exchanges, but um.
You know what that’s that’s.
That’S you know, experience man and he’s only.
I believe now, two and all so yeah yeah and he didn’t have a long amateur career either.
So he still loves.
He didn’t have a long amateur career but yo.
Honestly, i rate it.
I rate him, i think uh.
I think he’s got a hell of a lot to live up to uh with you know, with his grandfather being who he is and um honestly.
You know with shoes like that to phil you got a target on your back um yeah offensive wise.
He was doing his thing, but he did the the one punch that he was kind of consistently getting hit with was uh over his jab he’d get hit with a you know, overhand right over his jab um, and that was the most conceit, probably at least once Or twice per round, he must have got caught with that.
So definitely need to clean that up before he moves up into the higher ranks.
Definitely definitely a more experienced fighter with a little more power would uh would easily drop somebody with a shot like that.
You know it’s it’s putting it right on that temple and you know that’s that’s one of the sweet spots, man that makes you go bye-bye, [, Laughter, ], so uh, yes, chris thanks uh.
