He was born october 25th, 97 in sacramento.
California, and as a young kid he wanted to play football.
However, his father pushed him into boxing um.
I believe he was eight years no six years old, the first time he started boxing and from there he literally got bit by that bug that most of us do.
When you know we learn how to throw our fists and take punches and punch people back and um he’s no exception to that, and you know now he’s 16-0 with 11 knockouts and he’s signed to floyd money, mayweather’s team, mayweather promotions.
So i believe we’re going to see a lot of him coming up uh this year as uh as the year starts to unfold and as we start to get into some of these amazing bouts that are supposed to happen this year, uh yeah.
So i’ve watched his kid he’s got some pretty pretty good hand.
Speed man he’s got lots of power um.
I believe it was his last fight against um.
No, it was his second last fight.
It’S 2019 november november 1st uh.
He fought jesse chris uh rosales and ended that, with a first round knockout 21 seconds into the match, um got him with a nice jab, followed off by a nice right hook and dropped.
The fight was over.
