She said she’s gon na do it.
I don’t know if she has the ability to do it, man to be honest, uh, and that’s only because i still don’t have my girl katie taylor 100, and i can’t wait to see this girl get in the ring.
You know she’s a machine we’ve profiled her on here many times.

Let you i’ll let you fill in that beep, where i beat myself there, but definitely definitely man, i’m looking forward to this fight.
Man uh, it’s gon na be a huge battle uh.
I think i think it’s actually gon na steal the show man to be honest, because i think a lot of people wait to see this fight for a long time is making you know, uh these girls fun in 2012.
, taylor beat uh, you know, jonas and uh.
You know a lot.
A lot can happen in nine years.
Man, so we’re gon na see what it’s gon na be like man.
It’S gon na be a very excellent uh, an excellent fight for sure it’s gon na be entertaining as hell, and you know, katie taylor.
Always always comes out, and you know entertains every time she fights i’m looking forward to seeing this fight man, you guys get on this card.
Man check it out, make sure you watch this fight, i’m telling you it’s going to be one of the big fights of the weekend, because you know what let’s be real men.
The women are getting super exciting this year.
Are they not for him loving it? Absolutely loving that, yes, exactly exactly our fight fans out there, man, i’m telling you keep watching these girls man.
These girls are super exciting man.
They are gon na steal.
The show this weekend, man, it’s gon na, be the big fight.
That’S been talked about all around the world for sure you know what and definitely coming off.
You know the blonde bomber versus you know, courtney.
That was a huge woman’s battle that happened.
You know a couple of weeks ago, so this one’s gon na have to live up to it, if not beat it.
So we’re gon na have a great match.
These women are gon na, come in they’re gon na leave it all in the ring.
They’Re gon na dish it all out and the winner is gon na, be crowned the undisputed light and for me, i’m hoping that’s katie taylor.
Well, actually you know what i’m i’m betting, the farm, i’m betting, the farm on, even though i don’t own a farm.
I bet you know what i’m gon na bet this stupid picture behind me.
I bet this stupid picture right here that that that taylor’s winning it you know what and and if i lose i i’ll burn this damn picture live on.
One of my shows, okay, i will burn that.
Damn picture live on my show.
Katie taylor doesn’t stay the undisputed.
You heard that out there folks this picture right here, burned, burned, burned up and we’ll replace it with something great, but graham what? What are your thoughts on these two? Ladies? They are going to go.
Toe-To-Toe um, it’s a tough call.
You know we’re probably going to talk about this on the friday night panel in a couple of hours uh, i i you know what this is just one of those i’ll leave: frasier duels, where you just want to see the fight and you could go either way.
You know you know what i’m saying like it’s just going to be a great fight, and you know what you’re absolutely right when it came down to the benny bridges, full story, yeah at the end of the day, what did we get? We got a great fight.
Two women just clobbered each other and that’s what i think is gon na happen happen.
You know what i believe into you know what like katie taylor, natasha jonas.
They are no strangers, of course, uh, and they share the ring previously in you know, in the amateur ranks you know they famously met in london, 2012 olympics when taylor defeated jonas in the uh, you know on route to the gold medal.
You know many years have passed since then and now they’re going to go head to head as professionals uh, but the same outcome looks likely again with taylor having the edge uh.
You know the undisputed lightweight champion.
She is a class act, uh she’s.
You know she rises to the occasion and you know she she claimed she’s, going to claim her 18th cons.
You know her 18th.
Successive victory as a professional is what i believe uh.
You know it’s it’s it’s worth.
You know it is worth nothing that nine nine of taylor’s last 11 wins have come via the judge’s scorecards, so there could be some value in opting for her to win on points uh if you’re gon na have the bet outcome.
So you know she hasn’t really finished people in her last few fights.
So what could happen it might go to? It might go the distance.
I would like her to see you know.
I’D like to see.
Katie taylor do do what katy taylor does best and just you know, bang people out, but is she gon na have enough power this time to put her away we’ll see uh as jonas as jonas picked up enough power to be able to put taylor away? And you know, jonas jonas is no slouch man, you know nine more than one seven knockouts and you know she’s.
You know she’s she’s, she’s a bad.
You know she’s she’s, a bad lady man.
I like watching her fight too, but at the end of the day i got ta.
Stick with my you know my irish last there man, i got ta stick with katie taylor.
You know the roots run deep in me.
You know the irish roots.
I got ta.
Stick with my irish people, so you know what jonas as much as i do like you, you know you’re, a beautiful lady, you’re, a wonderful fighter.
You know you’re, very talented boxer, but you’re gon na get your ass beat and that’s it straight up.
That’S what i think she’s getting her ass b uh.
You know what i’d like to see a knockout, but i believe this is going to be an epic battle that is gon na, go the distance and uh.
You know it’s probably gon na get one on points.
To be honest, you know we’re talking uh ten ten two minute rounds.
It’S gon na be a lengthy battle.
I can’t wait to see it.
I’M super, i’m super excited guys get on this man.
Make sure you see this one man, don’t slouch, don’t be wasting your time, trying to find it on sunday.
