It’S four o’clock: it’s four o’clock: what time is it? It’S four o’clock, [ Laughter, ], [, Music ] afternoon, talking fight fans.
It’S knuckle up time with mike or at four and he’s got a guy for me today and you with a name that no one can pronounce and get your shots of vodka ready.
Here we go here, we go, you know what we should do is have a little game.
We should have like uh i’ll say what country is he from what weight classes? Let’S see if the viewership can even figure out who you’re about to talk about all right? All right here we go here, we go, i haven’t had any shots of vodka.
That’S m-a-g-o-m-e-d, k-u-r-b-a-n-o-v mega med, kerbanov, okay, all right! Yes, this guy must be good yeah.
Another russian man he’s another russian.
I found you another russian.
I found the fight fans another russian.
Let’S uh: let’s: let’s talk a little bit about this, this wonderful boxer, um, he’s 21-0 and nobody’s ever heard of this kid 13 knockouts uh, he’s managed by a german titov and uh this guy.
This guy graham, is his manager.
You look at this guy and he looks like you know the kingpin for every mushroom rob or he’s hilarious, but uh yeah.
This kid is some serious stuff.
Man, like um, nobody’s seen him really um.
He’S he’s been like he’s been under the radar man he’s just you know, he’s this russian kid who’s uh.
Only 25 years old he’s got 21 fights.
You know, 21 wins 13 by knockout uh.
You know he won the 2008 guadalajara bantamweight youth world boxing championships um.
He fights at light middle and um.
You know people have been saying that uh the light middleweight division needs to look out because there’s a new uh there’s a new headhunter in town and it’s this guy.
This kid is um he’s he’s big stuff man um.
You know as an amateur he um, he won titles in the 2008 world championship.
He also had won some other.
You know regional titles uh.
His professional debut was june 19 2015.
He won that and then, after winning six more bouts, he defeated manik dileon by tko in 2016 for his first regional belt and um.
Ever since then, he’s just been stacking up, um a resume of people that he’s just been beating up man and this kid he’s another one of these russian guys.
Man he’s very militant, the way he fights, but he doesn’t like he doesn’t.
He doesn’t give a breathing room uh.
Unlike yesterday’s fighter, we were talking about where he uses his distance a lot.
This guy likes to close the gap get in there and just and just beat people man and and go at them, like you know like the terminator.
He comes in there and he just he crushes people, man, he punches through blocks.
You know his his ability to go to the body and – and i mean when he goes to the body he likes to go to the body and punish guys.
Um he’s got a fight schedule coming up for for this year, um.
I hope that it doesn’t get um honestly.
I hope it doesn’t get postponed, but so far it’s scheduled for may the eighth um – and you know this is gon na – be for the wbo inter international super welter title.
So it should be a really good vote.
Uh, i’m hoping that you know he comes through with the win, i’m pretty sure he will he’s a great fighter uh.
His name is a little hard to say.
I hope i said it right.
I hope i’m doing the guy justice.
You know i’m not russian.
I can’t even find it on [ Laughter, ] um, google, the childhood uh since, since his childhood you know he became he.
He became a boxer and around the age he started boxing at the age of 12.
um in his amateur boxing.
He got the title of master of sports and won the russian sparta uh spark height.
I don’t know what that is uh.
I believe it’s some sort of title for youth um.
You know, and then just after his professional debut this guy just started running through the who’s who, in the russian scene signed to rcc.
I believe he’s still part of rcc, and you know he’s he’s about to make this transition over into into our world of boxing, and i think we’re gon na start, knowing a little more who about who he is uh.
You know he’s he was on the radar for the top 25 under 25, but unfortunately he didn’t make the list uh.
He missed it by a little bit, but you know, but we can’t count this guy out.
This guy is uh.
You know he’s a very talented athlete he’s very strong um, you know he’s not he’s not the cleanest of fighters, he doesn’t have the greatest of technique, but he does have heart and he goes in there and he destroys guys and that’s what i love to see.
Man, i love to see people get their head, caved in and and knock down go to sleep, and you know you know hats off to this guy honestly and truthfully uh.
I love what you do there, uh magnomed or megaman, or whatever, whatever how you pronounce it.
I love what you do.
Man keep it up, fight fans check them out watch his highlights, they’re, always fun to watch watch the fights are even better um.
You know this guy is going to be a force to be reckoned with.
If, if he can get the right fights under his belt, and then you know, hopefully his management team uh, mr mr don don of the russian mob guy, looks like like really this guy’s manager looks like you know: the head of every russian mob movie, you’ve ever Seen in your life, it’s hilarious, uh yeah, i mean he’s, got the adidas tracks.
You’Ve done, oh my god, but he’s he’s one of the tracks.
For being you know, from being in the eastern promises, [ Laughter ].
