That’S a younger brother right.
I believe so i believe so.
David, isn’t that the one that’s at 168.
? Oh yeah, that’s the one that that 168, that that’s uh looking to fight canelo too, and i actually think he’d give canelo a good test too yo man me yo.
I i believe so too.
I believe so too um.
You know what david benevides he’s undefeated right now: man uh he’s he’s uh what 24 fights he’s 24-0 with 21 knockouts.
I believe it is and uh honestly i’m looking forward to watching this guy get back in the ring again uh, you know he’s fighting kyron davis.
That’S right: uh, oh yeah yeah! So so it’s kyron davis, david benavidez.
Getting in this and getting in this ring man uh footprint footprint center phoenix, it’s going to be huge man, kyron davis, 16 2-1, should be good.
Uh benavidez is coming off of uh.
His last fight to get ronald ellis uh, which was a tko in the 11th at two minutes three seconds of the round and um yeah man, i can’t pretty sure kyron davis he gave he gave uh darrell a good, a good goal in his last fight.
I’M pretty sure uh he he uh.
He fought darrell back in uh uh.
What was it uh february 27th at the beginning of the year, so yeah and he did uh it uh.
It was a draw um.
We can’t do a draw.
So you know what it was.
It was scored one third.
So you know it went the distance all 12.
What a great fight that was! I do remember actually watching that man and he did bring it to him um.
You know kyron davis he’s only 27.

Orthodox 510 73 inch reach it should be.
This is this is gear enough to be a good card as well man.

Uh that’s a showtime card, then we have a zone card starting at nine p.
m and that’s uh mongia versus rosado right.
Oh, that is going to be a good one.
Mangia versus rosado, gabe rosado is a is um, as a veteran he’s been around forever was never considered the top guy, but is always someone that’s going to definitely give you a good test.
He had one of the biggest knockouts of his career in his last fight.
Uh knockout of the week actually against um, a former former decorated amateur yeah um, who was supposed to just run him over and uh and um.
You know he definitely switched it around and then uh jamie, who i i believe they pronounced it, jaime yeah, um and who you were talking of.
Who are you talking about um about that? One from rosado was actually vector mere melee right? That was a ko in the first one that big one yeah remember: rosado was down in round one and then yes was down in round three with that spectacular water, yeah down for good now, yeah, yeah and uh.
Honestly, i couldn’t.
I can’t wait man.
I can’t wait to see this one.
This is gon na be a great, a great event, man for sure for sure great event, this saturday yeah yeah, i wish i mean – i know these they’re all different promotional companies, but man man, i just i wish they would spread out a little bit more like Youtube like man right, i’m gon na, have to have three laptops going with all these three cars.
Like i have two laptops.
You have to buy a third one yeah, so the the magia and rosato card is uh for 12 rounds and that is going to be for the wbo intern, intercontinental middleweight title uh presented by golden boy in association with zenfone promotions yeah.
So i’m i’m super excited super stoked for this fight weekend, man, um and there’s anna’s three or four different cards in in the uk yeah wow yeah man.
This is a really busy weekend.
You know what it’s it’s getting to the end of the year.
You know what i mean and uh we get, and a lot of these guys are trying to get those fights out and underneath them and get them over with before the new year happens, because i believe everybody wants to enter 2022 with.
You know, 2021.
In the past, no more thinking about this crap, no more thinking about the corona, no more thinking about any crap like that.
I think it’s these guys are like hey, let’s get it in here.
Let’S get these fights over with.
Let’S get these contracts signed, let’s get the fights done before the year is up and then, let’s all move into 2022 and start freeing up these divisions and having uh having a blast man and watching some people get knocked out on a complete.
On a complete side.
Note uh good old jake, paul uh was saying just yesterday, just saying about remember: i was mentioning amanda serrano and yesterday yes, knuckles, okay, uh well, naturally, he’s he’s hoping that amanda will will win yeah the card.
I think it’s december 18th, but if she does win he’s already talking to eddie hearn about matching up amanda against katie taylor, i know i know so we do have a lot to look forward to in 2020.
All right we do, we do have a lot to look forward in 2022.
I’M super excited about it.
What’S up little man, there’s there’s there’s the future of windsor boxing right there.
There you go! That’S the future of windsor boxing, the future of canada right there we’re going to be carrying it on his shoulders.
Man have you sent.
Have you sent kid austin? A note.
Is he coming on? I i did.
I don’t know i think he’s stuck.
I think he’s stuck like again.
You know he’s in he’s in that he’s in that porter camp i’ve been told that they don’t run, they don’t run too orthodox style.
Man they’re very uh, they’re very fly by the seat of their pants.
It must be something about the las vegas air, because remember cody, carly cody crowley was telling us about mayweather calling him at you know between 10 and 4 a.
m, for sparring yeah, they’re they’re, all over they’re all over the place there, man, honestly it must be the Las vegas heir, but yes, the last time he said he said junior told me to message you because of a conflict schedule.
I apologize for the cancellations and last minutes he’s like at this moment we’re in the sean porter camp.
Their schedule goes by the moment.
So you know what um i did talk to him this morning.
He did say that he was ready for the interview uh.
He was he was concerned about time.
I told him that it was going to be a quick one, so we could just let the fans know what’s been going on, since we last talked to him and uh.
You know what we might as well, let the fans know what’s been going on, since we last talked to him.
Uh he’s won a new belt yeah, so i’m super stoked about that, and i can’t wait to get them in here to talk about it.
Unfortunately, it’s not looking like it’s going to be today.
That’S why we had all these fights to talk about today, which honestly i’m happy to talk about them, a lot man, because i can’t wait to see this man, i’m i’m hyped for the benavidez card, i’m hyped for mangia and i’m hyped for kid galahad.
I i couldn’t you couldn’t want any more for a boxing weekend.
Man we got.
We got three great fights going on three good cards and uh we got.
We got some good potentials for our show cedric on sunday we have some really good potentials going on for our show man, so guys stay tuned.
Make sure you check us out on sunday, so we can bring you the knockout of the week and we know it’s definitely going to happen on one of these cards.
Man we’re doing it big and hey.
Maybe maybe rosado is going to do it big like he did before? Maybe he’s going to be a maybe he’s going to be a two-peat, maybe he’s going to be a back-to-back kind of thing here, man, you know he’s winning it again.
Let’S see if let’s see, if we can do it, man, maybe maybe it’s a possibility, we’ll have to see, is there any? Is there a show on friday, too any shows on friday, they’re they’re? Already there always are, but you know we’ve got.
We got tons going on man, we got tons going on friday.
I’M just checking the schedule right now.
Yes, we do have the uh.
The metro dome yorkshire is going on.
There’S cards going on in leads uh yeah.
You were right.
Graham, there are a ton of cards this weekend going on in the uk.
Unfortunately, they’re, not all televised and uh broadcast, so we’re definitely gon na have to look for places to find them.
I know we got a bunch of things going on in italy, but we unfortunately do not get that uh.
Those italian uh, you know feeds.
I don’t know why.
Uh i mean there’s also, i think, there’s also a big card going on in spain uh.
Unbelievably, these other european countries are picking it up as well.
Yes, our good friends at boxing 247 keep us pretty well informed as to what’s happening on the continent.
Germany, spain, italy, france, all big boxing nations, but we hardly ever hear about their cards because they’re they’re not televised over here period level in in britain, so yeah.
I know we can’t get them anywhere.
Maybe it’s about time that uh somebody does that for us: [, Music, ], there’s, there’s some thoughts to be had right.
There um! But yes, there is.
There is a card.
If you do have access to united kingdom bt sports, you can check out a card on friday.
Um, it’s uh.
It’S it’s a big one.
There’S a lot a lot of young talent on here.
Uh we do have.
We do have one of my active tomato cans on this card: active tomato cans, yeah active tomato cans, uh kevin mccully, sporting, a record of 15 215 and 12.
wow wow, and he will be taking on jake henty for his debut for a pint of beer.
You know what i just thought of something yeah for there’s, actually, probably more pressure on the opponent like all this.
If i’m like his friends like if you lose to this guy, like seriously, i have to reconsider our friendship, 200 losses.
I am gon na have to reconsider our friendship.
So sorry you let me let me correct you.
There 215 losses, oh my god, yeah, so uh, kevin mccully he’s he’s one of these journeymen.
The tomato can boxers that we’ve talked about that.
I did my weekly special on and honestly, if it wasn’t guys like him out there for these young and up and comers who are making that transition from amateur to pro uh.
You know these guys.
These guys got the experience.
Man they’re gon na they’re gon na they’re gon na.
Let these guys know what pro boxing is all about: yeah, well, they’re gon na they’re gon na force, the pressure they’re gon na push the pace.
They’Re gon na cut that ring they’re gon na use their ring iq yo, just because they have 215 losses, doesn’t mean they don’t know what they’re doing in there yeah yeah yeah sorry this means 215 times yeah yeah.
I got ta.
Add that in there too, with that being said, first of all, you know much respect to the heart that it takes to get in there almost 300 times or however many times that you did it, and especially especially knowing that there’s more of a chance that you’re Gon na lose than win and you’re still willing to get in there and and give it a shot that that says a lot about your character and how much drive you have um.
Maybe change up the training habits just a little bit, though um yeah well yeah kevin mccully yeah he’s on there um i did.
I did say that there are some active guys that may take over the top the top worst records ever uh.
You know i i did that.
Yes, i did do the week.
I did do a week of nothing but uh uh, nothing but losing records and the worst losing records in history of boxing and yeah man.
This guy here kevin mccauley.
Uh he’s he’s active right now and he’s still he’s still at it.
I’Ve seen this guy on many many many cards and let me tell you he’s scheduled already for three fights in november.
Okay, he is scheduled for three fights in november.
I don’t know i’m taking him or we’re gon na lose no, no, not knocked out.
I don’t care, i’m there, but see you go through this guy’s record and uh.
He hasn’t been knocked out since 2019 in a second round loss other than that.
It’S all points.
It’S all points he loses on points, but uh he is scheduled.
He is scheduled.
He is scheduled for the fifth, the 12th and the 25th of this month.
So this guy gets in there and fights a lot.
You know he’s not he’s not a young boy.
