[, Music ]: what up talking fight fans thanks for tuning in to today’s episode of knuckle up, featuring myself bike or am a man cedric ben, supporting that nice new haircut he’s got going on loving it [ Laughter, ], we’re touching on we’re touching a gentleman by The name mark chamberlain today, uh profiled this man about a year ago, uh yeah man – you just want to uh – want to let everybody know about his wonderful victory over the weekend.
Um, sorry july, the second, so mr chamberlain, aka thunder, is 11-0 right now with seven knockouts and is ranked four out of 96 in the uk, 97 out of 2181 in the world, guys 23 years old southpaw.
He is coming off of a wonderful unanimous decision win over mark vidal and that was july, the 2nd guys so last weekend that was for the vacant international boxing federation european light title.
This one went to the judges: all judges sworing, it 190 uh – very, very great uh, great performance put on by this kid uh, amateur, standout, uh, three national titles.
Let’S talk about them, let’s break it down for the people, yeah yeah tall, long, southpaw um, you know keeps he keeps his uh keeps his fundamentals, simple he’s not he’s not uh.
I’Ve only watched two of three of his fights but um.
You know he’s not trying to do anything.
Flashy keeps both hands up um in proper fundamental defense.
A lot of people there’s a difference between just keeping your hands up, just for the sake of keeping your hands up and actually having the same way.
How i talk about having an educated job, you know having having educated defense with being comfortable with your fundamentals, right, you’re, leaning to the side, the slipping, not just simply walking forward with your hands up, so he has that um yeah man, a very good good, good Uh grasp of the fundamentals and uh i can see why he’s undefeated, yeah, honestly uh he put on a great performance.
I was looking for his amateur record.
Unfortunately, i couldn’t get a definitive answer for it, but i know he’s a three national title, so we know he’s an educated, amateur boxer coming into this game.
Uh, you know his debut as a pro um is only uh.
You know four years ago, man he’s four years into this game and 2018 december.
The 15th is when this kid became pro and uh.
You know what he’s been doing: big things ever since uh he’s coming off of also another win uh in march of 2, uh march 20th, 2022 against jeff, o’farrey uh.
That was another great one.
Man uh, that one was a stoppage in the fifth round.
So this kid you know he can uh he’s got the ability to.
You know end these fights and uh.
Do it in a timely fashion.
You know knock it out.
Seven of his 11 wins.
You know great performance, uh unbeaten, lightweight prospect, mark chamberlain extended his unbeaten record to 11 fights as he handed and sustained beating the spain’s mark fidel over 10 rounds on that joyce and hammer undercard at wembley.
Uh vidal was rocked in the first round and in most rounds thereafter, as the fight became increasingly uncomfortable, uh viewing, but as much as chamberlain hit him, he could not knock him off his feet.
All three judges scored it at 190 um, the only possible reading uh.
There was a good case for referee bob williams, stopping the fight any time after the seventh round.
Although fidel kept punching back, he clearly had no chance of winning chamberlain started in blistering style, catching medell, with three left to the body early on then staggering him with a left hook as he came forward.
Another left staggered videl, but provoked a response from the spaniard who came forward to better effect later in the round.
Vandal put a lot of effort into the second round, but chamberlain kept his boxing together and was timing.
Him well rocking his head.
Back with his straight left, videl became increasingly frustrated in the third round, as chamberlain started to get more on top the main subject of his anger was referee williams, unwillingness to penalize chamberlain for punches to the back of the head.
He claims or use of his head still.
It was chamberlain’s street punches that were the most effective uh and the three punch combination had middle wobbling in the fourth round, vanell stuck it and stuck with it through and uh.
You know coming forward trying to throw chamberlain off his stride.
Chamberlain finally got a warning in the sixth round uh, as he rather used his head to push vidal off um.
Actually, you know it had a bit of success, although chamberlain was landing much more frequently in the seventh round, uh videl looked a steady amount of stick uh, but would not go down uh the onslaught got even stronger in the eighth, as dell was rocked repeatedly on The ropes but kept punching back uh.
It was now horribly one-sided without uh, incredible determination preventing a stoppage that would have been in his best long-term interest.
Instead, he kept it going and in the final round, chamberlain again came close to his stoppage as he hurt vidal repeatedly.
Mickey burke jr extended his you know so like it was, it was great man and then right after that, we got mickey burke jr extended his unbeaten meeting record with a six-point decision over serge and bobo.
What a great great weekend of fights, though i know you watch it, i know you watch it.
I watched it.
It was a great uh, a a great performance man put on by mark chamberlain.
You know, while the outbreak of kovid19 had disrupted many high-profile boxers plans for the year uh.
You know it resulted in unexpected opportunities for fighters uh.
You know in the infancies of their career um each of the first four shows in england, since boxing returned from its four-month hiatus featured at least one fighter having their first live, televised fight, uh and one fighter who seized his chance was mark chamberlain at six and All with four knockouts um at that point, uh the port’s mouth puncher required less than a minute to dispel uh dispatch of stu greener.
His opponent may not have been expected to win, but greener was believed to be a small step up in class.
Having previously defeated the unbeaten tyler davies and nathaniel wilson, son of chris eubank senior, so anything you want to add anything.
You want to add to this.
What weight class is this day? This kid is in the light division uh his last fight, he weighed in at 134 and three quarters 734, so 135, so who’s the champion, that’s the serious weight class with all the um, with all the all the dogs there yeah.
If we go into.
If we go into the rankings, okay in uk in the uk, this kid mark chamberlain, sitting forth just under uh just under gavin gwynne uh, ricky burns, maxie, hughes, uh and he’s you know ahead of craig woodruff, ryan walsh, corey gibbs, uh, dylan, chima and luke will Uh willis and ryan uh charlton.
So if you go to his world ranking where he is sitting currently 97th he’s got, some he’s got some time to go.
You know like um, we got some.
We got some high-end names up in uh up at the top of that group.
Definitely we got javonte davis, devin haney ken bonces lomo, you know lomachenko lopez, diaz.
Well, he’s still – and i mean he’s only – has he has 11 fights right now, seven fights so he still has.
I mean he’s still probably another i’d say probably another two years before before he would be uh.
His name would be mentioned up there with those guys.
As a challenger um but um yeah, i mean like i said he sticks to the fundamentals and he doesn’t very well.
I just wish he had a little bit more head movement, obviously he’s not getting hit, he’s still undefeated and mocking most of these guys out.
I’M just thinking for the future when he, when he’s facing the the guys at the at the higher levels, um, maybe just a little add a little bit more variety to the defense, yeah and um.
But i don’t know with that being said.
I think he’ll still be a title holder.
I mean title shot at least yeah.
He was training in a tko boxing gym um under under the tutelage of wayne batten.
I know what he still is, but uh, i’m pretty sure he is currently still um in the gym with him uh yeah he needs.
He needs a little bit of work, he’s still young still, you know still wet behind the ears as an amateur or sorry as a pro um.
You know, he’s gon na have uh he’s gon na have a good transition.
It’S been four years, but let’s put it this way, man he’s only 23 years old, right, um the pandemic might have slowed down this kid’s career and uh.
You know it’s: okay, it’s okay, because he’s still really young, so it didn’t affect him as much as it might have affected some other people, but um yeah.
You know what we need to see this get a little more.
We need to see him a little more busy um.
He has fought twice this year already man march and then again in you know last weekend, so i figure.
Maybe we could see him in a couple more months, we’ll get to see him at least three times.
This year, that’s what i’m hoping to see well now that he’s wearing that ibf european light title um yeah.
I think i think we will see him.
Maybe he’ll have a title defense before the year is up yeah um.
He have another fight scheduled.
Yet, no not good yet but uh.
He just fought last weekend on the second.
So we’re talking, you know, oh okay, that’s right! That’S right and then uh.
You know he.
He picked up a title good for him.
Congratulations! He picked up a title uh.
You know, and i’m hoping maybe we get to see him uh defend that title before the year is up uh guys.
I will keep you updated with when mr chamberlain, our man mark, thunder chamberlain, will be fighting and uh defending that title and not trying to improve to 12-0 man.
You want to say anything before we get out of here.
Um nah man hope he sticks with the fundamentals.
Just add a little bit of defense.
To that add a little bit of variety to that defense and uh yeah man, you should have a good career.
