He is ranked 59th out of 309 in the U.
S 310 out of 2103 in the world, and this 5 8 22 year old hailing from Salinas.
California is scheduled this Friday.
I believe it is all the eighth yes, so he’s scheduled on the 8th to fight Angel rebeller uh, who is five one and oh right now and that’s a Dignity, Health Sports Park in Carson and guys this card is the funduro and Ocampo card uh.
There’S lots of good fights on this card, guys uh the headline of course, Fedora Ocampo for the WBC intern World Welter super Welter strap.
Then we got Carlos Adams uh, taking on Juan Montiel for the WBC interim World middle and we got Fernando Martinez taking on Gerwin and Kaja uh for the ibf world Superfly, and this kid is going to be on the undercard of this fight, guys so make sure That you uh do your due diligence like I do man and make sure that you find a way to stream this fight and see the earlier fights, because you definitely want to see this kid uh get in the ring and do what he does uh best man And that’s uh box uh very intelligently, he’s got good hand.
Speed he’s, got great movement.
Laterally he’s got uh, you know, he’s got great ability to control the pace and um.
You know use that ring angles.
Man, uh Cedric.
I know you’re watching some of his fights right now I can see you got.
You got a glimp.
You got something in your eye there.
That just means you look over right now.
So I know you want to talk about this kid.
So, let’s uh, let’s discuss Ed he’s coming.
He has an aggressive style, but he’s still boxing at the same he’s always start his combinations with some good Jabs.
First right um, I ran them hard power pawns from another from another angle, but I like the way he keeps his hands up um Mr Guerrero, who was a uh Robert Guerrero.
I believe that’s his name thought Mayweather.
When his last fight um his dad, you know he’s in good hands um the way that he that he is off the ring, like you said before yeah, with it long extension on this job.
As long as he stays focused, he looks like he could have a break future too.
You know he does have a great future man and, yes, you are right uh, he has uh in his corner.
He has two generations of championship boxing in in the way of Robert, the ghost Guerrero and his father, Reuben uh, the Father and Son team agreed to manage and train Cardona.
After seeing his dedication commitment drive to succeed, um, you know he’s not afraid to ask questions.
He’S not uh scared to learn.
He has no ego, nothing like that uh and that’s what you need in boxing to become a world champion and champion boxer Robert Guerrero sticks behind this kid man and he believes that he’s going to be wearing a world strap uh.
You know the boxing team is known as mad dog Guerrero boxing and Gilroy uh.
They gave Cardone a chance when other trainers would uh wouldn’t take a chance on The Young and inexperienced Cardona figured started barsing at the age of seven years old uh.
I have a little boxing gym in cluster Park in East Salinas, known as the Salinas Boxing Club Cardona is now you know in professional about four of those fights coming by way of knockout and the stallion is no structure to the spotlight uh.
His first fight was an undercard in a nationally televised fight, all but one of well all, but most of his fights now uh have been televised.
All the fights have been on an undercard Cardona has no doubt that that will change.
So you know.
I hope that after this fight, we do get to see this kid and finally get to compete on a main card uh.
You know he has been in.
You know he’s been on these televised events since the beginning of his career uh.
You know he graduated from Everett high school and continues to live in East Salinas uh.
You know the boxer he’s here and he’s ready to choose his own path and that path is on the way to a world title and definitely with the kind of people that he has in his Corner.
In you know, father-son team, the Guerrero Championship boxers, I believe, he’s going to be in good hands uh for the rest of his career.
Here, man and uh.
Definitely I’d like to see this kid stay on his feet for a little while you know he was born and raised uh in Salinas in 2018.
He graduated from high school.
You know he has movie star good, looks and uh.
Maybe it’s a combination of his Italian Hispanic Roots, the strong chin and a weary smile that feed into his mystique and um.
You know he’s one of these guys that you’re definitely going to want to like do you like to watch man, and then you look in his corner and then you got Guerrero.
Who looks like you would imagine a boxing coach to look like man.
You know that baggy tracksuit bucket hat gold chains, you know it’s all part of the Persona and definitely uh this team.
Together with uh.
You know Father and Son, Guerrero and Cardona, it’s uh it’s turning on.
You know it’s turning out to be a really a really great team uh with him.
You know now becoming 8-0 with four Knockouts in his career, as a professional being fighting on these undercards soon soon to see him on a main card, I hope uh.
He definitely deserves it.
Man we definitely deserve to see him get in there with some great competition.
What uh? What are you hoping to see from this guy in the future? Cedric um he’s 2-0 right now, he’s eight, no eight, no with four knockouts ain’t, no foreign interesting to see.
If he’s the uh um like be more of a stop his opponents or if he’s gon na you know, go more the distance and just get you know, skills to do both.
So it’s going to be interesting to see which way which which uh you know with style that he that he went to his career.
You know and it really his dedication really does show you know.
Training and family are cardona’s life outside the ring uh.
He is an only child first thing in the morning.
Cardona takes a long run.
Then he comes home to make his father coffee and breakfast uh.
You know this.
This kid has dedication to this man, family fighting he eats it, he breathes it.
He sleeps it.
The recipe for a champion guys so you’re hearing it here from Mike Warren Center, telling you this weekend make sure you watch our man, Justin Cardona on the Fedora and Ocampo card that kicks off on the eighth you’re not going to want to miss it.
Hopefully, you guys have the ability to see Cardona in action.
