Four o’clock, you know what time it is, graham, it’s time to knuckle up with my gore at four how’s it going.
You don’t even need me anymore, hey man, i get to say.
One thing you beat me to the punch every day, so fast must be a special day.
It must be your birthday.
That’S right! That’S right turn the big 4-0 today, the big four out, so anybody out there watching.
Thank you for the birthday with is, if i haven’t gotten back pardon me, did you get my sympathy card? Oh yeah, yeah yeah, it’s real good here, but still there’s a lot of game left.
Well, all right welcome to talk and fight another episode with mike we’re at four knuckle up here we go uh just before we go into this.
I got ta say uh.
I’Ve always wanted to go to australia way back in the 80s.
I had the opportunity uh.
I had an agent working for me, uh, who was putting me into different hotels, and he put me into a hotel in bermuda when i finished that two-year stint.
He goes where do you want to go next? I went australia and he goes.
Why do you want to go there? It’S just full of fleas.
Okay, all right! I guess i’m not going to go to australia, though [ Music ].
It’S still on my bucket list.
I still want to get to australia.
I got a family there.
I would love to go and see them cool awesome.
I would love to go and see them, but so yeah, if you look familiar with australia speaking of female friday, what do you got? That’S it um, ibani bridges, school teacher, turned professional boxer and also uh has pretty pretty huge instagram following uh he’s been the subject of some nasty um dick pics.
In the last little, while over the uh coronavirus, she’s been complaining that some of her fans are sending her, you know junk pics and trying to get her to judge on the size of them, which is making headlines right now, um, it’s kind of sick and disgusting, Because you know she is uh she’s, a true athlete, no matter how good looking she is, she’s still a professional – and you know she she’s got to remain professional and it’s sad that these guys are doing this to her, because you know what um she accumulated.
A a great amateur uh, you know she had a great amateur career.
Accumulated 26 wins over four losses.
Uh she turned pro, i believe it’s 2019 and uh she’s had four fights uh in 2019.
I’M sorry three fights in 2019, one in 2020 uh last one being uh february: the 8th um yeah she’s 4-0, with uh two knockouts, so she’s a 50 knockout artist.
Here, um – and you know she uh – she used to be a math teacher man.
She so she juggles she juggles teaching math to her students at school and uh juggles his professional boxing career.
But due to this coronavirus we don’t know uh, you know, what’s what’s in store for and um in the next, you know here we don’t know, what’s lined up for there’s not really much about who she’s gon na fight or you know when she’s gon na fight, But uh i thought it was.
I thought it was pretty surprising, she’s um managed by bro brian cohen, who also um, managed jessica camara.
Surprisingly so uh small world right.
So um you know, maybe we can uh.
Maybe we can ask jessica to uh get in touch with brian and maybe get her on here, because, honestly, i would love to uh i’d love to talk to the you know the bomber.
You know this girl, she’s uh she’s, a workhorse man.
You should see her in the gym: uh her fights, she’s, very aggressive, she’s.
You know she swarms her opponents and uh.
You know she’s in there to win it.
Man and she’s got a lot of heart and a lot of drive and honestly i would love to get her on the show.
So i don’t know, maybe if we can reach out to jessica, maybe if she’s even watching this, you know through instagram or whatever, please uh, if any bridges please come on the show, we’d love to talk to you and hear your story about you know.
Moving from being a schoolteacher to a great amateur career and now becoming a pro at uh, 4-0 and uh, you know you might be one of the next up and coming uh.
Ladies of of boxing – and you know, we really want to get in touch with you and and hear your story so um, please yeah, contact us or we’re gon na try and get a hold of you for sure.
You know she’s uh, she’s, five one but she’s uh.
She packs a punch like a like a like a big person, man, the when she’s she’s in there in that gym.
Just you know: she’s she’s, ferocious man, she’s she’s got.
I can’t put put a name on it actually like.
She reminds me of a fighter, but i just can’t quite picture that fighter name in my head right now, but she’s, just she’s, really aggressive she’s she’s got the heart.
She’S got the drive and truly to be able to juggle.
You know, teaching and professional boxing.
You know she obviously has a huge love for this sport and uh.
You know hopefully fight fans.
We can get her on.
So we can, you know, talk to her and have a discussion with her about all this uh, because i would love to hear this story.
I think it’d be a great story for us to.
You know have on our show, and you know it should be a great guest man to have uh.
You know recurring.
Two things come to mind.
Uh one is uh.
Maybe she has a lot of pent up anger, uh as a teacher and just hey.
I would take all that on her opponent, exactly exactly you know, little billy in the back pissing you off all week, yeah you get in the ring and then punch crap out of people on the weekends.
That’S that’s how it all started right.
It’S just for you! So the robber – if that’s the way it happened, yo, let us know you got to get in touch with us.
We need to know we want to hear your story.
You got ta contact us man, we’d love to have you on this.
Show i’ve reached out to you on your instagram i’ve messaged you under the original honey badger, please you had a fighter on yesterday: you’re uh profiling, an australian fighter yesterday, profiling another one.
Today i mean in your research you’re discovering a lot of good other than these.
Two, i thought yeah a lot of people.
There’S a lot of young talent coming out of out of australia.
Is you know, i think i’ve also done another guy uh, the beast uh, who is an american but uh chose to uh start his professional career over in australia? I don’t know if it’s it’s, it’s an easier, an easier stepping stone or if it’s just there’s more competition for them at the time.
But australia seems to be pushing out a lot of fighters uh right now and uh.
They seem to be performing very very well.
So obviously, there’s there’s great boxing over in australia.
I’Ve never been.
I would love to go and visit one day and you know check out some of those gyms to see how these guys are actually training but uh yeah.
You know you can’t you can’t deny it.
Man, you know the brits are in there they’re taking over.
You got the australians starting to take over it’s uh.
It’S it’s, this new style of boxing man and you got a lot of these.
Do you know these new and up-and-comers? It’S just it’s the drive and the heart they have man.
It’S become such a such a fitness combative world.
These days, where everybody trains, everybody has some style of training, so you’re getting these talent pools that are so deep of of raw talent.
And then you know we’re putting them in the gym and they’re harnessing this this raw talent, uh, the coaches and the training and the management – and you know everybody on their teams – are just doing the right things to get these people noticed, and you know what for Me for me to be able to notice this girl uh on our side of the world and she’s over in australia, but you know i’m not.
I noticed her for her achievements in the boxing ring.
Not not these headlines with all this crap, that’s going on in her life with you know, sick fans sending her crap that you know it’s.
It’S just pointless and childish bullcrap, and you know this.
This girl is a true professional and uh.
You know i i hate seeing crap like that.
You know: she’s got she’s got that talent.
You know she’s 34 years old, she’s a little late into the game, but you know she’s made some headway so far and uh she suffered.
She suffered inner pro debut.
I believe it was a broken ankle that required two surgeries, so she was put on the shelf there for a bit.
So you know we we can see, i hope, to see good things from her, because you know she is she’s.
Very talented and uh i’d like to see her in the ring this year at least a couple times.
You know she’s not afraid of getting in there and banging it out man.
You know once she debuted it was.
You know two other fights right after that the same year and then one in 2020.
So, let’s, let’s see what happens uh, hopefully uh.
Some luck, hopefully her management team does great for her, which uh brian cohen, usually does uh.
You know he’s been in the game a long time and uh.
You know, i think i think we’re gon na see her on the world stage.
Man, if she keeps banging people out like this she’s, very heavy-handed and uh, you know there’s there’s not too many women out there that are, that are true.
Heavy-Handed punchers and this girl’s got the power in both hands, and then she can do some damage.
