Yes, people! Today! We are going to be profiling and talking about a gentleman who goes by the alias of the muslim boxer, also known as musan khesan, and this guy is a force to be reckoned with at the moment.
Uh this kidman 10-0, seven knockouts in the cruiserweight division.
28 years old stands: six foot three birth place.
Baltimore maryland now resides in las vegas nevada, where he lives and trains with his famous brother haseem rachman, who uh was famously known for for uh, knocking out lennox lewis in their first fight uh back in the late 90s uh yeah, i’m really uh.
I don’t know if he’s having any some technical difficulties getting on, but i was really looking forward to hearing from him just to hear a story.
Definitely he’ll tell us the full story of the details when he comes on but uh you know tell us, you know.
Just for people – i don’t know we can, we can run through some things while we wait for him um, so lusin uh never meant to follow in his brother’s footsteps, but uh quickly became a familiar face among boxing’s best uh rockman is the former heavyweight world champion Who famously knocked out lenox lewis, like cedric, just under you know, explained to everybody.
His younger brother is an unbeaten cruiserweight and uh caisson uh, with his ex-brother ex-heavyweight uh hussein rocking him case on the 20th.
Well, now he’s i believe, 23 years old, uh.
No sorry, 28 years old, um, sorry, i was a little off there uh.
You know he’s 28 years old, this kid uh he’s 21 years younger than his older brother and uh.
You know this curtain.
This current unbeaten cruiserweight needed out of boston where he was living at the time and could only live with his brother under one condition that when he moves there, he was told that he would have to actually come in and start boxing and use boxing uh yeah.
His brother said: hey you’re, not just going to come here and just chill and hang out and watch tv exactly we’re going to be putting in some work.
Yeah you coming to live with me little brother you’re doing work and that’s exactly what he did.
So you know he’s moved into los angeles nevada, where he’s coming to his own man and uh.
You know this kid’s, no slouch he’s been sparring, some champions uh.
You know throughout time and um you might know him.
You might know him as um being one of ksi’s uh sparring partners for the uh, the rematch against him and uh youtuber uh.
I guess it was logan paul, wasn’t it that fought ksi yeah? What one of the paul brothers, i believe it was logan, though he he was the sparring partner for uh ksi, and got him ready for that uh that wonderful event that happened um this kid, though um moussan cason.
He used to be a boxer man and uh or sorry, not a boxer, a bouncer at a nightclub uh where him and a guy got into an altercation and he just dropped.
Him dropped him with a shot and uh.
This boxer guy was like yo man.
You should be doing this and you come to my gym, so he did he followed.
He followed him went to the gym uh, you know and got hooked man.
Just like everybody out there you go to the gym man, you get hooked, that’s the way it works.
The minute you start punching people in the face you enjoy it, it’s it’s such a good stress, relief man and i don’t know too many people that haven’t been bit by that bug.
The minute you get in that gym and you start hitting you get bit and you’re and you’re in there forever come on cedric you’re a lifer.
Just like i am yeah yeah, the bug you know he didn’t have much of an amateur career uh.
We will talk to him about that um, you know because he did get into it late and um.
You know it’s it’s.
We need to hear more of this story.
This is why i’ve profiled this this gentleman before this is why we’re having you know, wait for him to sign on here and hopefully join us for this interview today.
Uh, if not it’ll, be a small little profile and we oh, i know you’re back.
Oh, i see i’m having technically difficulties.
No so hopefully, hopefully the weather in vegas is real, nice and uh.
Well, it’s always really nice in vegas.
Let’S just hope that the technical difficulties get taken care of.
So we can get him in here and talk to him because honestly, uh, the guy’s got a great story.
Um and you know what he’s a super talented, cruiserweight uh and you know what i i believe, he’s about to embark on a journey and follow follow in you know the footsteps of his older brother, who you know, was uh ex-heavyweight champion yeah.
It’S a interesting story to hear that you know, especially oh he just stepped into the into competition by accident and especially since you know not not having much of a of an amateur career and just getting right into it, so very interested to hear the story.
The back story behind that oh yeah um, you know he his coach he’s he’s mentally confident as a fighter uh, especially because he has his coach, uh, rasheem, jefferson uh, you know he’s amazing.
Uh he’s helped him learn how to box.
Instead of just throwing the right hands, because you know this, kid has a right hand for mel man, i’m telling you right now, um and this his coach has really uh honed honed that skill and really helped him learn how to box.
Instead of just throwing punches man and uh, you know physically, he might be a little bit rusty, but he gets the job done.
Man and uh, you know, and – and he really and he really is coming through like like.
I was telling you before uh.
You know the kid hasn’t been the distance since uh 2019 november 16th, which was a unanimous decision, win uh everything after that man uh.
You know he fought curtis head uh, 2020 uh december 12th.
You know ended that with a ko in the second round uh his next fight uh was july.
23, 2021 against tristan james took him out third round ko uh lamont capers tko third round, that was november, the 6th 2021 and last weekend ko fifth round over stephen lyons.
So you know this kid: he does have the power man.
He does have the power to put people away.
He does have the power to be a champion man.
He you know he.
He comes from championship roots man, you know it’s in his blood.
His brother is a world champion he’s going to be a world champion.
Man he’s got a cruiserweight to be watching for for sure uh.
You know there’s not too many, not too many that uh, that um that are really up and coming, though man in this cruiserweight division, yeah yeah the cruiserweight division, since it has been a little lackluster man to be honest.
Ever since uh it was, it was kind of exciting.
When usyk was there, he made it exciting, um uh, but then you know he they had the super six tournament and he clearly cleaned out the whole division and moved up the heavyweight and ever since then, i’ve been looking to to fill out fill out.
The you know it’s wide open.
The cruiserweight division right now is wide open for someone to take control exactly so um we’ll see.
If mr cason could do it uh, you know what i i believe he does man, you know he’s still young in the gay man.
28 years old um, you know he spar he’s inspired with people like caleb plant uh.
You know badoo jack um, you know and uh andrew ruiz jr.
So you know he’s he’s, got the experience.
You know 10-0 um.
You know sparring partner for ksi, like the guy, the guy’s known in the game.
A lot of people know him he’s really he’s really coming into his own and uh really coming out from underneath that shadow of his brother and um.
You know he’s he’s imparted on this journey and uh.
You know he’s he’s doing well he’s doing well and he’s caught my eye.
You know the guy’s got.
You know some great speed, great strength and a right hand from hell and uh yo.
That’S a recipe for knockouts man and that’s what i like.
I like the knockouts, that’s my thing.
I like watching people go to bed and this guy.
Does it man and he’s done it for his last five fights he’s put these people to sleep, so you know he’s an exciting fighter to watch guys.
So i want you to go and put an asterisk beside that guy’s name and start watching him, because he is going to be a big thing in the cruiserweight division.
Man and you know, he’s just just getting underway, which is good, and you know what he got.
A late start in this boxing, but he has an older brother who’s a champion.
So i’m pretty sure he knew what he was doing, but he does have the right coaching in his corner right now that have taken that raw talent and have actually turned it into great boxing skill, which hence the record that he has right now: sporting that undefeated 10-0, so with seven knockouts uh, it doesn’t look like we’re gon na get him in here today, um.
I think the technical technicalities are stopping it, which is unfortunate.
Uh cedric did you want to? Did you want to touch uh about, like uh any of his boxing style that you’ve seen um uh yeah man? You could definitely see that um he’s basically coming to hurt you.
Yes, he does have good fundamentals, but but he makes it clear what his intentions are.
He’S coming forward, uh keeps his hands up nothing too fancy, but he’s gon na he’s gon na stick that jab on you to just as a as a range finder and yes that right hand is coming like a missile yeah buddy thunder thunder.
I love it.
I love it uh i’d love to get them in here.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like uh.
You know the technical difficulties are getting worked out, so fans bear with us.
Please we will get him back in the studio.
We were talking to him all morning.
It’S just you know: what can we do? Man, tech problems, it’s unfortunate, it happens.
