Everyone hope you had a great day, and i hope you had a great weekend because i’m telling you the boxing on the weekend was fantastic.
Like i was talking to you about last week, we had a big fight on the weekend and we’re gon na recap that tonight we’re gon na talk a little bit more.
Excuse me about an upcoming fight that i’ll be watching uh in this weekend coming up, and i’m really really looking forward to that and guys.
You will figure that out too once we get into it that it’s kind of a special fight for me this weekend and i’ll, let you know and we’ll uh we’ll check it out, and hopefully you can watch all right.
So, let’s go over.
Let’S recap: the big fight we talked about last week, so the fight was february 19th.
At the ao arena in manchester, united kingdom ben shalom’s, boxer presented amir khan versus kell, brook khan vs brook wow all right, so we talked about it a little bit about it.
Like last week and i’ll tell you that fight didn’t disappoint.
Honestly, i was having a blast watching it.
It brought me back kind of you know like we always talk about this rivalry thing, or at least i do in sports and uh.
This was a big rivalry between those two guys.
It’S about a 17-year feud they’ve had so to speak about who’s, bigger, stronger, faster uh.
You know the the the best one in in britain and uh.
These guys did not disappoint i’ll.
Tell you if you guys want to watch a fight that uh it was action-packed right in the beginning, and i knew it was going to be a real good one.
So i i i completely saw uh.
They were at 149 pound catch weight and uh they don’t.
They don’t like each other, those two guys they really don’t like each other uh, but we’ll go over the fight now a little bit and there’s our standard pop-up today, you know get rid of that goofy thing as usual.
He never wants to do it, but anyway will dry all right.
There we go oh yeah hold on, maybe not there.
We go all right, so uh, amir khan versus cal, brook uh, first round boy, that first round didn’t disappoint.
Who came out big time quick.
He threw some wicked blazing combinations right off the hop they were like just blazing and uh and brooke uh.
He backed it up but kel with some with some counter punching and uh great footwork, khan’s footwork was really good in the first round uh.
He was he.
I could tell right away that this was going to be a really good fight just by the pace.
You can see that these guys were gon na go at an absolute maniac of a pace and i was really concerned uh about that pace and you know, and if you watch the fight you’ll see yourselves man, i don’t know how you would keep that up.
For 12 rounds because it was just toe to toe head to head and and nothing left on the table, i’ll tell you that they they both gave it all they had in every round.
It was amazing, honestly, it was absolutely amazing, so good on you guys uh uh, kel and amir.
That was an amazing fight.
I liked it so second round uh it kind of started out the same way.
Like i say, uh kell brook started, started uh.
You know it looked like he was kind of he was.
He was kind of, i don’t know playing around with him in the beginning, or he was just feeling him out.
So much khan was super hyper.
He was like he just wanted to finish this fight, quick and i think that hurt him in the end he he gasped himself out.
Uh cal looked like it was a destruction really every round, cal uh destroyed him it.
You know that’s what i thought: anyways uh.
If you look at it, i mean amir, put up a great fight.
He he probably should have gone down in rounds.
Three four five uh he was.
He was almost knocked out on his feet a few times, but then he’s got a huge heart, amir khan.
He seems to come back and keep coming back and you know he’s really he’s really got a lot of heart and i like that in a fighter and he got hurt, but he came back and he winged his own punches and i mean, like i said guys, This was a super fun fight to watch because it was just it was just balls to the wall.
If you know what i mean like completely just boom, it was awesome, so they were great exchanges in the second round.
Uh kell brook got uh.
He had some swelling around his eye in the third round and i was thinking that might be of concern because of his past uh and the swelling seemed to uh it stuck around.
So he did get popped with us.
Some shots enough to give him a a good goose egg on the side of his eye there – and i thought oh wow – that’s uh, that’s gon na, be it and khan basically uh.
He played that round really well.
The third round, i think, was his best round con, but what happens is the last 30 seconds or 45 seconds of that round and rounds going forward? Uh man kell brook, took over and absolutely smoked him like i’m talking, pummeled him and uh.
I was just shaking my head because i mean khan had that one in the bag and the next thing you know he’s almost out on his feet.
It was unbelievable, really it went back and forth and back and forth, and it was really fun.
Fourth round, i checked it out great pace like i said it was unbelievable.
It was recovering well uh, again, kel had a flurry at the end of the of the round, and it was.
It was a doozy.
If you know what i mean uh, the fifth round, they went in there heavy shots by uh, brook, oh, my god, heavy shots, and it looked to me.
I don’t know i was.
I was checking it out and i’m thinking is amir khan actually trying to play the rope-a-dope here.
You know the old alley, rope-a-dope thing, because in that round he basically was laying on the ropes, but they said he couldn’t be gassed already.
I thought he was trying to get kel to punch himself out.
I thought it might have been a maybe part of the game plan, but uh ben kell brook was like a cyborg on fire.
If you know what i mean, he it didn’t matter, he he just had an absolute amazing fight and – and he didn’t even face him – i don’t even khan – was breathing heavily kel did not look brook did not look like.
He was like really that tired at any moment, and he just annihilated him uh.
Basically they came to the sixth round and that was it.
Uh khan barely made it through the fifth in the sixth.
He came out right off the stool crushed him with a.
I think i believe it was a right hand and then a left hook up against the ropes and then he just just cornered him and held him against the ropes and pummeled him into submission uh.
They had to stop the fight sixth round tko for kell brook and it was it was wow, and i i kind of liked at the end, i’m not really this in this situation.
I was big on it.
They uh they they they went to the center of the ring.
They talked, i believe, the rivalry, the differences, everything you know right then, and there they they both gave it all they got.
They seemed to uh, be embracing each other quite well, smiling and happy and uh.
They were taking photos afterwards, together, uh the trainers and the two fighters.
So i mean, i guess, that’s it that that’s the end of that looks like amir khan’s uh he’s he’s trying to decide.
If he’s going to retire, i mean he’s, had 40 fights in his career and uh.
I don’t think he’s got it.
You know he just doesn’t have it anymore, i don’t think the passion was there where kell brook he had a really tough upbringing guys if you want to look at a fighter that had a really hard time growing up uh, you know a certain, not his circumstances.
Just what he was put into and and had to live under so to speak and come out of is unbelievable.
So i’m really happy for kell brook he was really happy man.
You should like.
There was a lot of excitement and happiness at the end of this fight on both sides, so it was.
It was fun that way too.
There wasn’t enough, there wasn’t any bitter taste in their mouth and i really liked it.
I thought it was a great fight and i’m sure guys out there check it out amir khan and uh kell brook wicked wicked fight.
So let’s talk a little bit more about what’s happening, coming up all right, so basically the way i’m looking at it.
The next fight, i’m gon na look at guys it’s coming up this weekend is february 26, 2022.
From the sse hydro.
In glasgow, scotland, we got champion josh taylor, josh, taylor versus jack, catarrill, jack, cadrell, uh, big fight, uh, scotland, josh, taylor’s hometown man.
This is gon na, be a good one: uh josh taylor’s 18-0 with 13 knockouts, cadrell’s, 26 and 0 with um 13 knockouts.
So there you go it’s for the uh dots for for taylor’s, wbo super lightweight title, and i’m telling you it’s it’s.
I love the fact that they’re doing these big world title fights in scotland, i’m originally my parents and grandparents are from scotland and uh we’re from a little island in the north called bara and uh originally and uh.
So that’s it.
You know um.
I was named after neil mcneil from bera, so there you go neil mcneil.
That’S me apparently neil the deal is neil mcneil.
There you go.
That’S a good one, all right guys.
So that’s going to be a big fight.
The wbo super lightweight title: josh, taylor’s uh, headlining main event: uh, it’s going to be on sky sports, so here in canada and the united states, it’ll be on sky sports and uh they got up.
They got a bunch of other fights on that card.
We’Re not gon na go over all of them, because we’d probably be here all night, but uh the one fight that i’m looking at – and this was the bit of the surprise.
I was gon na – tell you there’s on the undercard.
There is a world title fight for the scottish heavyweight title: the scottish heavyweight title.
The fight is between nick campbell and jay mcfarland.
Now, if you guys remember, i did a episode about a year and a half ago on j mcfarland and he goes by the moniker jj ghost he’s actually uh.
It’S my friend’s cousin from scotland want to say hi to you hector how you doing heck right on hector robertson there and that’s his cousin.
So we’ve been in contact with jay a couple of times.
I’Ve been trying to get him on an interview.
He’S already said that he would be interested in doing it, so i’m still trying to get him uh.
We might get him later this week, just for the heck of it, because his fight is on saturday and it’s gon na be, like i say, like the scottish heavyweight title now.
The thing that’s interesting about this scottish heavyweight title, which i had no clue that this was the situation, was um.
It’S vacant, all right.
It’S been vacant.
This title all right for uh nobody’s fought for the heavyweight scottish title in 70, get this 71 years.
What 71 years there’s what i whoa? That is insane guys think about that, so the last time apparently was in 1951 and it was george stern versus hugh mcdonald uh 71 years ago.
So that is that that’s why i’m looking forward to it! This hasn’t happened in like uh three quarters of a century, so i’m going all the way with jj ghost my buddy there jay mcfarland he’s going to take down and win the title.
I i mean the other guy, apparently is six foot, seven he’s a massive giant but j j? Is they all end up on the canvas, doesn’t matter how tall they are or whatever? If jay takes them down and takes them out, you know six, seven, don’t mean nothing.
When you’re laying on your back right so anyways, it’s gon na be a great fight.
Uh night over there uh.
I know i was talking to some other people.
I know that um that there’s some really good up and comers uh on that card, there’s a lot of a lot of a lot of really good fights on that card, pro debuts and stuff.
So i’ll leave that up to you guys to check it out.
That’S the uh josh taylor, uh jack cadrell fight on saturday and we’re gon na talk about uh uh, we’ll be talking about.
Jj goes for sure i’ll be uh.
You know, hopefully getting them on the show later this week, so we’re just gon na work on that.
All right, so i want to thank you guys for coming out.

Maybe his family kidnapped him.
Are you still around her family day there you go all right guys! Well, i guess we’ll uh we’ll just talk a little bit more about stuff, i guess might as well.
I hear natasha jonas won her fight on the weekend as well.

I know ebony uh ebony’s fighting again.
I believe her second, something like that.
Ebony’S coming up, there’s all kind and my girl, amanda serrano, is fighting, as we all know very soon, can’t can’t i love amanda, serrano and uh and all that jazz.
So basically there there are the fights that are coming up guys this year are over the top.
Like the the competition shakur stevenson is fighting, we can go through a little bit of it.
You know, uh shakur, stevenson, fight, looks really good.
I mean that’s gon na be uh, that’s going to be for the undisputed title that that right there shakur stevenson he’s fighting somebody.
I can’t quite remember.
I know, though ryan garcia’s there’s been some talk with ryan garcia’s out there.
He left the uh.
He left the canelo camp.
He doesn’t have eddie reynoldson as his trainer right now or anymore.
Right now, he’s gone back to california and he’s training there.
He he really wants to get involved in stuff.
So um, you know that’s, what’s going to happen, eventually, you’re going to see ryan garcia again and – and he is friggin amazing – you know he’s a undefeated kid who’s.
Just he’s got he’s, got all the all the tools that boy i’ll tell you.
What’S gon na happen, that’s what’s gon na happen, so maybe we should just call the producer and see if he’s actually still there hello.
Mr producer, are you there
