Hello boxing fans around the world welcome once again to another episode of knuckle up on sunday, where we feature the best knockouts that we’ve seen anyway and uh well, mike uh.
I don’t know about you, but i well, i saw kind of one knocking.
I saw some guy stumbling around well.
Okay, wait a second! He was from ireland, so uh.
What was i saying he’s looking for his kill kenny is what he’s doing um james tennyson is who you’re talking about by the way anyway.
Anyway, you know what the funny thing is about that particular fight, we’ll talk about it later, i’m sure but uh.
The funny thing is about that particular fight.
Uh, irishman versus the mexican.
The commentators were saying afterwards.
You know, oh, if only he had known what these mexican fighters were like.
Like you tell me: oh they don’t have.
They don’t have no internet in ireland anyway.
Listen, you know what we’re on friday night we’re talking about uh, the vival fight and uh and uh.
All those guys won their fights and although none by knockout, so i guess i watched the wrong card entirely.
I was pretty happy with the uh katie taylor outcome.
You know i mean i got ta say miss g b, miss graham boyce uh.
Miss gp gave it her all you know, but no knockouts uh.
That fight was really close.
The way the commentators were calling it like um taylor really had to uh had to pull up.
She had really had to pour it on in those championship rounds.
Those later rounds uh because they said it would look pretty even going into into those later rounds, and you know taylor’s not really a finisher.
You know undefeated, yes, only six knockouts in her in her career right now, uh she’s, not really the finisher she’s gon na go in the distance.
She does have the skills to do it, but i give it to natasha jonas for for stepping in the ring and just and giving it her all and and pouring her heart in and really just you know, putting on a great performance which put on for a Great show and honestly and truthfully, i thought it was one of the most exciting fights on that card.
To be honest, if not the most exciting fight on that card, it um good.
I liked the uh not on that particular car, but i just got a couple of other quick mentions here then we’ll get into the knockouts.
There was a good stoppage.
There was a straf and tennyson fight um on that card.
That was, i think, that was stopping the first round with memory serves.
That was a good good, quick out, but uh the other one i really enjoyed, which ended up as a draw was uh was on.
It was uh was on the undercard for the ruiz fight, and that was the granolas and sanchez draw.
Did you see that one? I did not get an opportunity to see that one? No, that was a really good fight as well, but again uh, not a knockout.
Uh, surprisingly surprising.
I love knockouts this weekend, but there were a couple uh.
Oh you know what my hat.
My hat goes off to the ukraine i found uh.
I found some knockouts there that have happened throughout the week, really they weren’t super devastating.
So we we’re not gon na feature them, but i’ve i found um.
I guess it’s, the ukrainian instagram uh and there’s a club.
There called puncher box club uh in kiev, ukraine and uh yeah, there’s some there’s some talented kids coming up in the ukraine, man, uh and and i’ll tell you watching these fights with these kids.
You know, i don’t understand a damn word of what’s being said, but from from the excitement of the people that are actually watching yeah, they make for some good matches these young kids they’re getting in there and they’re literally slugging the [ __ ] out of each Other man they’re in there just head hunting.
It’S it’s entertaining to watch you know, and then you got some of these guys in there that are really really skilled uh.
You know it’s it’s it’s nice to see that you know on that side of the world that uh yeah there’s still some great young talent, that’s undiscovered over there uh.
You know i’m glad that i’ve been able to stumble on some new new places to find this content, so you know we’ll only see what uh, what the future holds with uh with what we can find over there now did you happen to catch any of the Uh the fights that were on the card in the philippines uh, yes, actually i did catch some of those fights there was.
There was a knockout there.
Uh again, i didn’t really we’re not gon na show it it wasn’t too devastating.
It was just you know, right right right at the bell at the sixth, you know, you’re not getting saved by the bell.
Nasty gut shot dropped to the knees fight’s over uh.
It was great that i was surprised.
I was surprised that i could even find those some of those fights.
Um did you know those guys the philippines, when they they got some really speedy short little guys in there just bashing the crap out of each other man, it’s very very exciting.
To watch uh.
You know the philippines uh, they produce some great great professional boxers and they have over the years – and you know they’re super exciting to watch man.
That’S that’s just how it is.
That’S how it is man.
You know the philippines mexican.
You know these guys.
They they’re, just you, know: they’re fierce man, they just they don’t have an off switch.
It’S go forward and punch as fast as you can and try and knock this guy’s head off, and you know it shows every single time you see these guys get in the ring man.
It always makes for an exciting fight, no matter who they are.
Even if there are no names man, they still fight like they’re, you know on top of the world, it’s it’s great, but again, mexico has a huge, huge professional boxing community.
I think uh box rex has them registered at about, like 3 800 active uh male pro fighters right now.
So that’s pretty amazing yeah! It’S it’s pretty nuts man, so they’ve got a lot of people over there that are that are so unknown.
You know – and this is what we’re trying to do – we’re trying to find these knockouts so that we can make these guys, don’t because you know what there’s so many good knockouts around the world uh.
You know what i wanted.
I wanted to touch on that um that that fight um, the quick one there, the little irish lad honestly.
I believe i believe that should have been ruled as a ko and i don’t believe he should have been able to continue after that standing eight uh.
He had no idea where he was um, it should have been, it should have been ruled the ko the stoppage.
I think the ref uh.
I think the ref should have really really you know, done his job properly and and and stopped that man he shouldn’t.
Allow him to you know, engage again in another another.
You know exchange time with tennyson right, yeah, the tennyson fight like tennyson, like let’s be real.
He he got dropped.
He was on his butt.
You know he goes to.
He goes to get up and he rolls over.
You know he falls on his face and he stands up falls back into the ropes.
You know, honestly, how the hell are you giving him a standing saying that he’s able to just walk forward now? The guy didn’t even know where the hell he was and then you know you let him enter this exchange.
The exchange happens, it’s what two punches, the guys against the ropes, and you know he he gets fed another shot.
I believe it was a right through through his block and then the ref stops in it stops it it’s like you know, you could have avoided that last shot in the face.
Somebody done some damage by you know doing your job properly and stopping that fight.
When the guy was on the ground, you never should have been allowed to stand up.
He was out cold, i’m sorry, but okay.
So, let’s move on.
Let’S move on, let’s, let’s talk about the knockouts man.
Let’S talk, let’s get to the knockout, let’s get to the real knockouts.
Here we go real knockouts i have to do give.
I have to give one honorable mention here for knockout.
We don’t have the video.
I was able to see it, but we always say that we are going to mention the knockouts that happen when there is a world title involved.
So nicaragua francisco fonseca versus robin zamora for the vacant, wba uh federal, attend super feather title uh.
It was a ko in the eighth out of an eleven round belt and um yeah.
We just got ta mention that, because you know again it is a knockout and it was for a world title.
So we got ta.
Let everybody know that that has happened so moving right along we’re going to move on to the the uh ruiz areola card, which is which is hilarious.
Like you know, we got ruiz, i wasn’t really.
You know it wasn’t a very exciting fight.
He was down in the second and unanimous decision, but before that we had three knockouts man, three knockouts in this card, i loved it great great, great great fight, so we’re gon na start off with um eduardo ramirez is the first one.
This is a quick one.
Um, you know ramirez versus avilar ko third round.
This is for the wba interim world feather title uh.
We’Ve got a quick little clip here, uh shot by a fan, so you know what bear with the video, but you will see the shot.
So, let’s run that one there, please, let’s check this one out here.
It is it’s a quick little clip see if we get this one going.
I love this outside stadium, yeah right right! Oh, is it gon na play? It’S not looking like it’s working here.
Oh here it comes here, comes it’s a quick one.
Oh no, it’s not it’s a slow one.
You’Ve got a super slow mode.
Oh yeah, that 18 seconds i don’t know.
I don’t know what happened there.
Man, it’s uh, it’s a quick one! Two and enemy drops.
It drops them and you know that’s it.
It’S ruled ko he’s done it’s over uh.
I don’t know if this video is gon na play.
Maybe we can try and get it going.
Maybe we’ll i don’t know, let’s see what’s happening here with with our back end.
Try and run it one more time.
Well, there’s there’s uh, there’s the beginning of it there.
Okay, we missed the shot man, it shoots him right across.
Oh there we go, we heard it again.
It shoots him across the ring.
He drops to his ass against the ropes.
It was great.
It was good good, shot.
Okay, the next, the next knockout that that that was on that card, which um i don’t know.
If you guys remember, i’ve talked about this guy before um.
You know super welterweight, uh, 1601 sebastian fenora versus uh yorg, your goal or your game kata kata stopped.
This is a standing ko ruled by uh california, commission right, california rules, it’s a standing ko.
This is taken from a guy a way back in the stands.
So you know it’s a really small kind of video you’re gon na see you’re, you can’t miss.
You can’t miss fedora, because this guy is like seven feet, tall man and in the division, the tallest guy in the division.
It’S it’s just ridiculous.
You know he’s 152 pounds and the guy’s, like you know, six, six, six or something like that and the guy that he was fighting.
Kata was only five eleven, so just um in this video just you’ll have to squint a little bit, maybe to see but you’ll see some string bean tower, guy, literally just filling this guy, and then the ref is just like.
No no you’ve had enough.
Let’S, let’s roll this video, let’s get this one going! Oh come on! Why are these videos not working today, man? Ah all right? Well, that one doesn’t look like it doesn’t.
Work doesn’t want to play we’re having trouble today, guys.
Sorry, sorry we’re trying to show you these knockouts, i’m squinting, though yeah yeah well, you’d, see it better if the video was actually moving.
If the video was moving you’d be able to see the guy, that’s towering over the other guy in the ring it’s nice here.
It is, i don’t know, what’s happening with the videos today, guys uh.
What can we say, but okay, we’re getting to the next one? Then, let’s just get rid of this video guys just look up the fight, go and see it.
It’S quick! Just watch it honestly.
You got to hear the commentating in the back, the guy that’s holding it, and then you know the classic mexican guy, hey it’s great.
It’S hilarious, the commentating in it.
In the background, is it’s just barred on like it, you know: hands down the funniest stuff.
You’Ll hear but the big one, the big knockout of the week fingers crossed my fingers crossed this.
One works guys fingers crossed after all, my bragging about technology a couple hours ago, but okay, so the the you know we got lara versus lamanna for the vacant wba world middle title, and you know what we talked about this fight on friday.
Laura you know longest reigning 154 loses his belt.
You know what he came back and i mean with a vengeance.
Let’S roll this clip man.
This is a good one.
Yeah hope it works.
Yeah me too me too.
I really hope it works.
We need to see this one.
We need to see this.
One sorry knuckle up fans, i don’t know, what’s happening today behind the scenes.
I don’t know what’s going on with these videos.
Hopefully we might get it okay.
As soon as that fighter comes back and says, we’re five seconds away from the big pop come on yeah right behind yeah right on the ear there you go fight fans.
Did you see it? This is what happens when you get crushed by a devastating look at that devastating left.
Folks, look at that devastating left now, lamena didn’t get off that mat for five minutes after that shot.
He lays there contemplating life wishing he didn’t show up wishing that he was still at home in probably thinking that he’s still at home in bed and still has to wake up to come to the fight that was devastating, i’m pretty sure everybody pooped a little.
You know like it was: it was a hard shot, it knocked it.
It was a very hard shot.
I wish the video would have played, because this video has four angles of that: knockout, that that we had geared up guys.
I’M sorry, i don’t know what’s happening with the videos today.
Uh i clipped them the best i could uh.
I found all the ones that i could unfortunately we’re we’re having.
I guess, difficulties loading them up and getting them running to speed.
So i’m not sure i know i know.
I know our producer got some new internet that he claims is the fastest, but anyways guys the winner has to be laura laura’s, taking it we’re giving it to laura for the knockout of the week.
You know what good on you, man, what a great fight that was, even though it was only one round, [ Laughter ], but you know what i think uh.
I think laura now gon na be crowned the new uh wba world middle champ, big things to come.
I hope to see him again.
He looked great in the ring uh you know in in that quick, quick match there uh.
I hope we see big things from him in the future.
I i know he’s uh he’s a great fighter and uh.
He shows that um he’s back and he’s ready to ready to make a.
You know a run through this through these talented competition.
That’S out there right now, so guys those are the knockouts.
Let me see: do you think you think we can try and run this laura one more time, let’s see if we can get it going one more time.
Let’S see what happens, let’s see if it happens, because i want to see it one more time definitely want to see it.
Let’S see if we can get the laura come on here we go here comes that that was a slow-mo one yeah now i’ll tell you right there, that is, that is a well executed, left and i’ll.
Tell you the ones that knock you out are the ones you don’t see and honestly he did not see that coming man, he came forward the whole time not expecting it, and you know what the great tactician that laura is with the belts on the line.
You don’t leave it up to the judges right and laura did not leave it up to the judges guys.
So you know what he’s the winner of our knuckle up knockout of the week.
It goes to laura congratulations.
You know what you definitely made, that man sit down and take a seat.
