What up talking fight fans thanks for tuning in to today’s episode of knuckle up featuring myself mike orr? Am a man centered been in the den doing what we do best? Bringing you? Those young hungry undefeated undiscovered prospects from around the world and we the only channel out here, doing it.
So that’s why you’re here and yes, we are continuing again with granite chin promotions out of massachusetts and showcasing their young hungry undefeated prospects, the young up-and-comers, the future of the sport, and we got a good one today for you, man in laurent humes, we’re talking about This light heavyweight who is 74th out of 182, ranked in the united states and 510 out of 1149 in the world.
This kid is sporting, a 5-0 with 5ko record right now and guys mark the date on your calendar.
We get to see him take on larry smith on june, the 25th this year, guys at sheridan hotel in framingham.
Let’S talk about him um this guy man, mr laurent humes, i wonder if it’s like pronouncing french, i’m thinking, i’m thinking it is a little french, because the way it rolls off your tongue um he’s a light heavyweight, but he punches like a heavyweight um.
You know five and oh five, kos and uh.
Judging by by his highlights um seeing his fights his number one power punch is the left hook.
He dropped um.
He dropped his opponent.
This last opponent here uh three times in the fir.
I’M assuming i don’t know what roundness is.
I think it was the first round um three times in the first round, with the same punch all with the left hook, um so and the guy’s fighting looks like a pretty big guy too.
They look like a light heavyweight.
He ended the end of the fight, dropping what a body shot and a nice body shot like it actually made him like shifted his whole body across across the ring.
Yeah you get a chance to pull up the highlight: um yeah man, light heavy weight, punch like a heavy weight.
Five and oh five, kos, let’s see how long you keep this this streak.
Exactly exactly talk about a kid.
That’S got heavy hands.
This kid definitely does have heavy hands and i believe the fight you’re talking about, i believe, that’s against jesus javier cintron and i think syndrome was down twice in round one.
I believe it is okay, yeah and uh yo that one ended in a tko in the first uh.
This kid has never never been the distance in his career, so that just goes a lot to show you man, that these kids, that’s that’s a good and a bad thing that uh! Yes, all right! You stop everyone in the first round and then you get your way until you know the biggest fight of your life against the best opponent of your life and all of a sudden, you got to go 12 rounds 12 at their pace.
Yeah, that’s it! So you know it’s a good thing, it’s a good thing for the crowd and and for your bank account, but it’s not good for the experience exactly exactly the only time he’s been.
He he’s been past.
The first round was in his debut against philip martins uh.
They were both on a debut.
The time was 233 of the second round uh, and it was a pro debut for both fighters.
Since then, first round, tkos and ako the whole way up the scale um and he’s scheduled against larry smith for a sixth rounder.
So, let’s uh, let’s just see how this one’s going to work out.
Will he get brought the distance or will he finish it? We don’t know time will only tell we do have a clip of this uh.
I, okay, i don’t know exactly which fight it is, but there are a couple of cats: hey they’re, all knockouts, so it doesn’t matter we’re gon na roll it for you right now.
Let’S get that going, so we can show all the fans out there.
Mr lara humes and i’m assuming whichever fight it, is it’s going to be uh, it’s going to be with a left hook, it’s going to be what a left hook that that that he that he pulls up.
Yes, it is yes, it is.
You know what and it’s a real nasty left hook.
Let me tell you man, i wonder if he has um, you know another reason that to get him on the show, i wonder if he has uh just as much confidence in the right hand as he does on the left.
You know i’m i’m pretty sure, because what would happen i’m just assuming like if you, if you’re just relying on one punch you go into a fight.
Sometimes you might hurt your hand, it happens a lot.
You might hurt your hand in a fight, um and uh and then you’re forced to use the other one.
So those are the adjustments you know hopefully he’s making those adjustments, not adjustments, but making sure he has.
He has just as much confidence in in both hands.
Definitely definitely, i can’t wait to see this clip uh we’re just getting it prepared to roll guys to bear with us a second um cedric.
I know like when we talk about these kids.
You know when they’re, young and undefeated and really haven’t been the distance um.
You know sometimes it can be, it can be a bad thing.
Man, because you know we, we not, we don’t see uh him going into these later rounds.
We don’t see him testing the stamina.
We don’t see the fatigue set in um.
What are some other things to look at when, when uh, when this is happening? Um? Well, it’s it’s just about uh.
What is there’s nothing you can do to to replace experience right that, no matter how much you you run, no matter how many rounds of bags rounds of rounds on the bag that you do, whether you’re doing intervals or just straight power punches.
There’S nothing that you can imitate the the random movement unprepared movement of real fights of your opponent.
You don’t know if they’re coming forward backwards, sideways defense attack, like all the unknown factors like when you’re in training everything you already know, you’re already prepared.
You already know everything’s gon na happen.
You already know you already have it inside your head, you’re gon na it’s gon na be hard to going for this long run.
You already have it inside your head.
It’S gon na be hard doing these intervals on this bag.
When you’re in a real fight, first of all, you don’t know it’s going to go 12 rounds.
You’Re you’re, like you only you know in the moments he’s like you know, if he’s expecting the to finish his fights early like he does all of them.
So, all of a sudden, it’s like the fifth and sixth round – you haven’t put the guy out there yet and now it’s kind of just in your now.
You know you might just have just this much of a of of tiredness in you, but this much will mentally will make it even bigger, because you’re not you’re, you’re you’re, not sure of um.
You know of what the let’s say, what you’re not sure what the future’s gon na hold up: [ Music ], [ Applause ].
He is in the blue light heavyweight from don’t think just react baby even for amateurs, um nothing’s as good as a straight straight thing.
Good job bruh, i always love you, it’s okay to to have that in your arsenal.
You know, what’s going on, definitely not afraid to get hit.
Definitely [ Applause, ], honestly good one to watch.
