These prospects, these young boys? That’S what we’re doing and uh today, like every other, we got a good one for you, man, kieran, malloy, uh, this irish cat young kid, but honestly, um excellent to watch man.
Great amateur uh, just turned professional he’s, got one fight under his belt, with one ko he’s in the super welterweight division and this 23 year old southpaw, who is 511 from galway.
Ireland is ranked 6 out of 10 in ireland, 452 out of 1962 in the world and um.
Honestly, if you guys want to see his pro debut uh we’re going back february, the 26th 2022 uh he has inked a long-term promotional deal with top rank uh.
He has also managed by uh colin boxing and uh.
He is trained.
He is trained by um angel fernandez uh, who now also trains anthony joshua, uh malloy could fight on the undercard of michael collins belt, with miguel uh mariga at belfast ssc arena in august um.
We were supposed to see him uh, but unfortunately, that fight got pulled uh due to his uh, his partner or sorry.
His opponent uh ended up with covid, so we were supposed to see him a little sooner than uh, then august 6th.
So we are going to see him august 6, guys so be on be on the lookout for that fight.
I’M super excited for this uh cedric.
You want to add to it.
Uh yeah yeah, i’m watching his uh one of his amateur fights against patty donovan.
Also, a former uh knuckle up: interviewee, yes, um so, and the difference they’re both southpaws like here and he’s a southpaw and the difference within me.
He keeps his hands up.
He won this fight against patty donovan patty donovan does a good job.
He fights with his hands down in that free flow style.
Um karen kept kept his hands up.
I think that was the main difference.
He kept his hands up and was reaching with the jab first before patty donovan could catch him with his jab and um.
You know, of course you know.
I always talk about that – that uh, knowing how to use your job in that proper way.
Uh karen definitely knows how to do that, and uh uh yeah definitely um.
You know he turns the page to the paid ranks after winning iris senior elite national titles.
In 2018 2019 and 2021 uh representing the famed um boxing club, he won a total of 11 national titles and fared well outside of his hometown home nation, taking home bronze medal at the 2018 eu boxing resort eu championships in spain and winning the herring boxing cup Title in 2017 he started boxing at the age of six and within a decade he had already had an ava world junior championship, bronze medal to his name.
He closed out his image of career in october, with a unanimous decision uh over long time, rival, luke maguire, to win his third irish title in four years.
Uh kid is no sludge.
When it comes to the you know, unpaid ranks uh.
He believes that he has a style suited for the paid ranks and he’s ready to unleash and show people in this way in his weight class.
What he is about and uh you know, he’s the second irish fighter to pull off uh.
You know the card uh uh, fellow former amateur standout, olympian, kurt walker um.
You know he signed honestly top rank has signed the trio, man, patty, donovan, kurt walker, and we got malloy and honestly these three guys.
You want to watch out for these irish cats man.
They definitely know how to throw down in this ring.
I love the fact that they’re all together on top ring, i think it’s, i think it’s great man, but you know the galway prospect was scheduled um.
You know to fight master square garden in the four rounder.
It has been cancelled, the top rank and common boxing like middleweight, was penciled in to fight jonathan ryan birds on the undercard of the wbc and ibf world champion uh, arthur petrov, uh nwbo champion joe smith, jr’s light heavyweight unification at hulu, theater, madison square garden.
However, the fight is off.
According to new york state athletic commission, it has been suggested.
Burr was pulled out of the fight on weigh-in day, leaving it too late for lloyd to find a representative.
It is a blow for the 23 year old southpaw, but one he can get over quickly as he is set to fight on the return of the mick card in belfast on august.
The 6th malloy is the second irish fighter to pull off this card.
Fellow former amateur standout olympian, kurt walker, was forced out with a cut earlier this month.
There is still irish interest on the card from the former irish american smith and dublin’s mcmahon who fights under jahi brown, but guys we’re talking about malloy.
Today he was scheduled to fight.
Unfortunately, that’s canceled.
We will get to see him august 26th and we’ll return to the mick so guys be on the lookout, so he is fighting soon.
Obviously, augustus is six he’s scheduled to fight there.
He was scheduled to fight uh against betrayal and uh on that butcher.
We have joe smith junior card, but it was.
It was called so you know unfortunate it’s unfortunate, but it happens in this game.
Definitely, though, be on the lookout for this kid man uh.
You know he’s got the right: coaches uh, definitely doing it right with uh being signed, the top rank.
You know he’s managed by uh by michael and jamie conlon’s, conlan boxing, uh and – and you know you couldn’t ask for more man and then angel uh and then his coach man he’s got angel fernandez.
Who is uh now trains anthony joshua uh.
Do you? What do you see when you watch this kid fight? What are you seeing? Because i know we don’t have much to go on right now, because he’s only one for one like he’s 1-0 right now with one knockout um, you know i’ve watched a bit of his amateur fights.
Do you think, do you think he’s gon na make a great transition into the paid ranks uh? I i do because um he has the defense for it.
Um he’s disciplined in his defense, uh patty donovan’s, fighting good he’s, throwing these big punches, but karen uh, mr boy, is doing a good job of of blocking them and different types of defenses, not just simply keeping here keeping his hands up, but he’s blocking he’s slipping.
Ducking under some um – and you know and he’s not just keeping his hands up sometimes sometimes he does drop his hand, but he does something offensive off of it and he gets right back to keeping his hands up so uh yeah yeah, just like most of the Possibilities possibility, that’s right, follow his career, excellent, so guys, you’ve heard it here, man from mike orr and cedric ben, bringing you those young, hungry, undefeated and undiscovered prospects from around the world, and definitely this one is one to keep in your books put an asterisk beside His name watch him he’s coming for the ring man we’re going to get to see him again august the 6th return to the mick.
You know what it is: man kieran malloy watch out for this 23 year old, southpaw out of galway, looking to bring boxing back to galway and honestly uh.
