Graham, did you did you have a chance to uh check it out, i’m actually looking at it now? Oh yeah, [, Laughter, ].
Sorry, i was a little preoccupied, yeah yeah, yeah yeah, it’s uh! It’S it’s a doozy man, yeah yeah! We we did talk about it.
Yesterday uh said cedric and i we did uh crown this as our champion of the week um.
You know what sal sanchez shout out to this kid uh.
You know, uh he’s fought twice this year, uh his last fight before o’quinn was.
He was coming off.
Fighting frank gonzalez uh, and you know what i believe he uh yeah there it is, you see it yeah, you saw it hey, you saw it.
Did we profile that, oh quinn, guy uh, i don’t believe i have, i think – maybe somebody else has in in the past.
I have not profiled them yet um, maybe uh.
Maybe we’ll do him tomorrow.
[ Laughter ], but this was the broken arrow card.
Yeah yeah yeah; yes, yes and um.
You know it was just one of those one of those wonderful events.
Man, like the you, you know what’s interesting about this starting interrupt but uh.
The actual mayor came out and welcomed boxing into this, basically uh in front of their town hall.
It was this big open-air, uh, yeah yeah.
It was uh, i believe it was put on by selena boxing promotions, plus um plus thompson.
I think they did a code deal for this one um yeah.
What what a great event man uh show box.
You know ripped that up, they threw it on.
It was great, it was great friday night.
It was a great friday night fight and i’ll tell you for that to be the main event and for the main event to end like that as drastically as it did, you know what that’s what we want to see guys we want to see.
So you know what we got to keep our raiders up and uh.
You know looking out for this kid man, because you know what he’s definitely on my radar now after watching this vicious vicious knockout um guys.
Oh, i believe the link here has been posted in our chat uh directly to that.
If you want to see it, you can check out my instagram knuckle up at 4pm or you can hit it up on our chat right here.
Uh, it’s been posted by, i believe our producer uh, thanks to him our eye in the sky, the one that always watches the one that governs what we do, but not what we say, because if we want here but yes, um what a wonderful wonderful monday, i’m Happy about all the fights that happened on the weekend, um, graham, i didn’t get a chance to touch base with you um about the anthony joshua fight um.
What do you think? What did you think about that whole situation? My my my premise going into the fight was that joshua had to use his reach uh and, if anything knocked out knocked down uh yousick before the six.
If he didn’t, if he couldn’t do that, it was going to go the distance and if it went the distance, it was going to go to the judges and we know never leave it in the hands of the judges.
But having said that, joshua was getting beaten up pretty bad in the 12th.
He did everything left in the tank.
He was done, yeah yeah.
I did notice that um.
I’M thinking that he’s gon na have to go back uh before that rematch uh work.
A little bit on his cardio man, because you know 20 pounds of three-inch difference in height and weight.
You know that’s um the guy’s going to last a little longer than that uh usa definitely had a little bit more in the gas tank but um.
You know usek did get beat.
He like his face did get beat up a bit yeah and uh.
It just goes to show you the power of these big heavyweights right.
It can only take one shot to finish it um usek.
He did play the angle properly.
Uh i thought he was gon na play the inside a little more.
He didn’t he was just playing that the the angles really well uh volume punching always pressing forward trying to bully him, and you know what we now have: a new unified heavyweight champion of the world and that’s uh alexander rusek.
What do you think of your boy? Okolie textbook textbook of textbook he’s everything everything that i always watch and say about this kid is the same, he’s a great fighter um.
You know, i don’t know about his rap career.
That he’s slowly got going on here.
Uh he’s got he’s, got a rap song out, but uh.
You know what man when you’re knocking people out like that and finishing fights – and you know you know putting those wins under your belt.
I guess you can do whatever the hell.
You want right yeah.
So you know what if i was knocking people out like that, i probably have a rap song out too called go to sleep or something along those lines, but i don’t so unfortunately, um yeah, no okay, i’d like to see where he goes next after this.
After this big fight um, you know who who’s he who who’s he gon na who’s he gon na face.
Next, we we don’t know, we don’t know.
Carl was saying uh.
An interesting fight might be joe joyce going up against you, sick next um yeah.
No, i would, i would definitely definitely love to watch that one yeah definitely watch that one yeah um there was a decent robbery on that card too um, you know what i didn’t get to see the entire card.
Well, let me know about the robbery who got robbed uh eric helped me out here.
Um christian was talking about it this morning because he thought it was a disgrace.
Oh really, yeah absolute disgrace.
He really held the judges uh.
You know to a certain certain level and and literally called it disgrace if you go to the nooner show or uh live at five boxing 247 [ Music ] and our producer pops.
In a comment on my shirt, that’s funny so campbell hatton that fight! Oh, the camel hat fight, yeah yeah, okay.
I heard i heard a bit about this, so you know it uh.
It is what it is camel, hatton robbery.
Yes, i’m gon na have to definitely go back and watch that yeah.
It was the only fight that i missed actually on that card.
I was on my way to uh my son’s birthday, so you know that was that that was wonderful, uh ray.
Thank you for uh for uh, letting us know which fight that was man.
It was uh kind of slipped, my mind there, but the campbell had him and his opponent, i’m gon na go back and watch that definitely uh.
If it was a robbery.
I want to see this um lauren sicoley.
You know what honestly great fighter i like him.
Uh he now improves to, i believe it’s 17-0 with 14 knockouts, so uh guys be on the lookout for this guy um.
You know not much of a rapper but uh, but definitely a boxer.
That’S for damn sure, i’m i’m pretty sure ray would agree.
That was a pretty decent card on saturday night um yeah, i mean now we’re really tuned in to october 9th and what happens because we’ve got a whole bunch of undefeateds, uh and, of course, the main event, but uh yeah.
That’S going to really shake up the heavyweight world.
If you ask in a good way, if you ask me well yeah, no it definitely, it definitely will definitely will and that’s what the heavyweight division needs.
It means it means it needs somebody to grab it by the feet.
Hang it upside down and give it a little shake, and let all that [ __ ] fall out of the pockets and then we scoop it all back together and let it fight again.
That’S what i need to have [ Laughter ].
If we can, if we can use that analogy, i don’t know it sounded pretty good.
I thought that would work too.
There goes our kids rating.
Oh, damn, damn sorry, sorry, eric you’re gon na have to start beeping me i guess but um yeah.
You know what uh sal sanchez uh kid.
You know what the kid surprised the hell out of me um.
You know big upset there against against uh o’quinn.
You know, quinn was undefeated coming into that fight and um wow.
He demolished him and what i did like what i did like is he finished.
He finished him, which was great.
You know he didn’t leave in the hands of the judges.
Let him gain his composure back.
You know he dropped him once dropped him twice came at him.
The third time and just you know, finished him.
Put him to bed quick finished him.
That’S why he won her knockout of the week.
That’S why we’re profiling him today on the damn show, because you know what we got ta watch out for kids like this man.
