[, Music, ], hello, there boston fans around the world.
Thank you for joining us once again here on talk and fight, we’re on with mike we’re at four it’s time for knuckle up.
I believe we have cedric in the green room waiting to bounce in as well as we talk about a little fighter out of puerto rico.
Yes, yes, here we go here, we go, i’m gon na try and do it: justice, okay, you ready sabriel, matthias 17 and 1 17 kos 29 year old puerto rican, orthodox 5, 8 71 and a half inch reach he’s ranked 10th out of 1897 in the world.
In his division and second in puerto rico, probably best known to be honest, uh for killing killing a boxer actually uh after a match um, he uh he fought back uh.
I believe it was uh a an ibf eliminator in maryland, usa uh.
It was dash dada chief, it’s the name of the boxer uh.
It went 11 rounds uh and it was stopped by his trainer uh, because after the 11th round he was concerned, his fighter wasn’t getting.
It was getting hit too much by the puerto rican uh, which later resulted in him uh ending up in a coleman dying uh.
I don’t know if you remember this kid yeah, i remember the name.
I didn’t see the the the mess, but i remember i remember that unfortunate situation.
Yes, yes, so um he has bounced back.
He has bounced back from that unfortunate untimely death.
It don’t you know it really sucks, but uh.
Here’S a big thing.
Man on my birthday saturday january 22nd, sabrina says real madrid will get the opportunity for revenge at the borgata hotel casino in spain in atlantic city, uh mathias will have a rematch with petros in a co-main event of the showtime televised card.
Did you say a rematch? This is a rematch yeah.
It’S a rematch coming up uh, it’s his only defeat.
It’S his only defeat.
Here’S the thing um gary! It’S on it’s on the gary russell, defending the wbc featherweight title against marquette, which is going to be a huge card anyway.
Uh mattias, who 17 and one with 17 kos he’s a feared.
Puncher uh lost that close decision to anyan in 2020 as part of a pay-per-view undercard on the rematch between tyson fury and deontay wilder uh.
Since then, matas has stopped the previously unbeaten malik hawkins in october of 2020 in the sixth round and forced the previously unbeaten uh to quit after eight rounds in their may clash.
So um everybody who knows everybody knows that this guy really wants this rematch uh he’s very excited to get the opportunity.
You know that defeat really slowed him down, but it was necessary.
It was necessary for get uh for him to get to where he ultimately wants to be.
It’S a girl.
That’S what i tell that’s, why i tell him my box, is you know, ll doesn’t stand for losing it stands for learning, exactly exactly um.
You know, and his opponent has vowed, to pull off a repeat victory when he faces back in october.
He won a close 10 round decision over uh daniel gonzalez at the barclays center in brooklyn um, which was featured on a trailer card so guys you might have seen this kid back on the trailer card.
Uh to all these people that are just new into boxing and everything, but yes, this is the kid we’re talking about that ended up having a match and as a result of that match, the uh the opponent died, uh as of complications man, because you know this Kid he’s a heavy puncher man, hard hitter, real fast yeah yeah with that being said, sometimes because a lot of times um with these uh fatal situations, there’s a lot of outside factors that uh, you know, might might got ta that might not have got picked up.
Like, for example, a lot of times when people kill themselves making weight um, you know it doesn’t just affect you physically, but affects you mentally, like if you’re, not if you’re, if your brain brain is missing water, because you’re draining yourself so much little, things like that.
Would make you more susceptible to getting a concussion or getting injured, or something like that so um, you know.
Obviously the punches does not help, but there’s also other factors that uh.
You know that that were involved that can be involved in that stuff.
So oh yeah, yeah um, you know this rematch, it’s been waiting for a long time.
You know it’s a it’s a winnable bout here, man to be honest, like uh, it was a very close decision in the last fight, so this rematch is gon na be gon na, be huge man and uh, currently at 140 pounds uh matthias is in in the Second, uh he’s in the second position in the world rankings of the ibf and ponce is in the first position so right this could be real, huge uh.
