[, Music ]: what up talking fight fans thanks for tuning in to another weekly episode of the knockout of the week award by yours, truly mike orr and cedric ben in the den how’s it going cedric, i’m good man, i’m good! So, yes, fans! You know why! You’Re here to find out who is our winner and uh: it comes to you off of the undercard of the rodriguez and coutiers fight and uh.
That’S that’s our man, khalil koh, uh, wow uh.
Let’S talk about this kid uh honestly he’s uh he’s he’s he’s very new to the game: uh they founded a catch weight.
Last night 180 pounds uh going into this.
He was one oh and one uh taking on dylan o’sullivan, who was want to know time out.
Do you know why why there was a catch weight was overwhelming yeah? I i didn’t catch.
I didn’t catch the reason why there was a catch weight but uh, apparently both men.
They fought at this catch weight.
Both men made it very easily uh the 180 pounds.
It wasn’t a problem and uh.
I know that uh from the research that i’ve done on this khalil cole uh he plans on fighting it eventually at 168.
So he has some area to play he’s only five.
I believe he’s only five ten, so you know uh yeah.
So this was his outing uh big knockout man uh.
Let’S discuss it, yeah yeah yeah, he uh he like he.
He slowly broke him down from from the beginning of the fight uh, just like how they say, like chopping down a tree, wait specifically, what round was it again that he stopped the second second round the second round, but it wasn’t because it wasn’t just one shot That uh that stopped him, but like no each shot, you can tell, was just slowly and slowly breaking breaking so uh o’sullivan, down um and uh and yeah man, the the the main one that really got him was was that was an overhand right.
Oh then um and then it was just because it wasn’t just one.
That’S when it’s hard for me to pick which one it was the overhand right and then a hard body shot and he landed an uppercut all um.
You know all in in consecutive segment motions.
So it was uh right, yeah man he does.
He does have some lightning speed, though i’ll tell you the kid.
He knows how to move uh.
He he’s hard-hitting for sure uh, you know, and and for him to be able to make that that 180 uh.
You know congrats on him, that’s pretty big, but he looked.
He looked like he could fight a little lower man.
He could fight a little more um.
This was a catchweight, i guess yeah, maybe maybe there’s the issues he and that’s what i mean man.
You know because a lot of times, even just in general, i’m just thinking about when when people ask me how to make predictions on fights.
The reason why sometimes i hesitate is because you don’t know how these guys are training.
Like you don’t know, i don’t know what these guys are being good with the nutrition if they’re actually taking taking.
You know running their miles, uh uh properly, so um, you know if he says if he says he wants to uh to get down to it to 168.
It’S gon na be interesting.
If you know, when that’s gon na happen, when you know he couldn’t make one uh the the the the actual weight for you know for light heavyweight, so right not sure if there’s conditioning issues or or you know, apparently apparently he has had trouble making weight.
So i guess this is the reason why it was spotted to catch weight.
Man, you know he’s this kid he’s from new jersey, um.
He he he was a he’s.
He’S appeared on people’s lists of high people to watch out for men.
He burst, he burst out.
Uh on the international boxing scene uh a year prior winning the chemistry cup in germany, with a highlight reel worthy knockout of julio caesar, la cruz, uh, the iranian olympic gold medalist from cuba.
Oh wait! A second he’s, the one that dropped him yeah.
So, okay, okay, okay, so uh, and it was the first.
It was the 21 year old’s first international tournament.
He followed up by defeating the russian born fighter representing germany, so yeah man, this kid he’s managed he’s managed by uh david water and that that’s very, very interesting information right there.
So that’s um and keith connolly.
So you know what he’s and and who doc say.
You know what i mean like he had a great performance man knocking out uh the olympic gold medalist man and that that was a great performance, yes, and so that um julio, says uh uh la cruz, who’s.
You know he’s not just any gold.
Medalist he’s probably one of the most accomplished: uh um gold medalist there there are when you’re talking about like the greatest of greatest of all time, he’s this.
This past limits, i believe, was his third gold medal.
Yes, he also won multiple world championships in lower weight classes.
All the guys from from the 2015 pan am games when i, when i was there as a as a as an official, all of them moved up in a weight class and are still dominating um la cruz.
He was my favorite one back in 2015, when i saw him and anyways i’m sorry for going off in a row.
No, that’s what it’s about man we’re we’re informing the people, man my whole purpose, my whole purpose of bringing that up and and how highly i rank him – is to just to show that that that is a big win for um for for kiliel cole to to To get to get a knockout and i’m not sure i didn’t see the match, i remember seeing the highlight of him: stopping him um, not sure if he outboxed him or just or just timed him on that, but just the fact that you were able to hit Him because that you know that’s, that’s that’s cruz’s main thing is, you know he doesn’t really hit hard, but it’s real.
It’S literally impossible, virtually impossible to to hit him that’ll, knock him out and stop him um.
So um the link, the link, the link to this guys for all the fans watching out there.
Man is in the description.
Okay, the link is in the description.
If you want to see last night’s knockout, i’m telling you uh this kid, you know what i think he’s getting off to a little bit of a slow start.
Um, you know, uh he’s he’s young man he’s only 21 22 years old now.
Uh! No! Sorry.
Sorry, 25 years old yeah he was 21.
He was 21 when he was doing the olympic thing right, but uh, no now he’s 25 years old, he’s managed by david midwater and – and you know, they’re going to do him right, they’re going to do him justice.
I just think he had a little bit of a hiccup.
You know what i mean uh, his fight against aaron casper uh – that was uh majority majority split right, so it was a draw.
That’S that’s the little hick up there in that bout uh.
He did take on that guy though, and eric casper was six four and one, so he was a you know a little bit more experienced in the ring um and unfortunately he didn’t come away with that win, which i think slowed him up a little bit in His uh in his still forward man, because this kid was and is still on on a lot of people’s list, man for high up there and and kids to watch and and um, and he should be it like.
And i just i just hope, especially at the age of 25, when it’s starting to get a little bit harder to to maintain the the the weight that you wear as an amateur yeah or whatever you.
Whenever you first turn as a pro um, you guys usually guys move up in weight classes as they uh as they as they get a little bit older, not necessarily move down unless it’s for, like a big fight, obviously um so yeah.
It’S gon na be interesting to see how his next couple of fights will wait.
What the wheat you’re gon na be at well definitely, uh he’s he’s a matchroom he’s a matchroom guy he’s a master fighter, so we’re definitely gon na see more of him.
Um and honestly after last night, i wouldn’t mind seeing more of him uh very exciting.
He is very heavy-handed.
He is quick um, you know, he’s he’s got that ability man and he definitely.
He definitely has that.
One punch hurt you power and uh.
He showed that yesterday against o’sullivan uh there was that one shot that really stumbled on that that that i think it was that straight right to the face you could almost you could almost hear the nose splatter against his own face.
You know uh big hit man.
It really really dazed him out and uh.
He finished him and he finished him in a fine fashion.
Yeah it was that we’ve got the highlights on right now, 40 seconds left in the second round.
Um got him into the corner, just blasted him um, with uh with a brass of brazil.
I call them like single punch, combinations, finishers, finishers man, that’s what they are.
