That’S our number one is the boxing and guys thanks for coming out, thanks for showing up thanks for all the likes like like like, like share share all that jazz has been rippingly.
Amazing is, if that’s a word ripping me, but it is really really getting somewhere.
The traction is crazy, even i believe even the even the professionals really are starting to listen to me because everywhere i turn i see like uh all kinds of stuff we’ve been talking about and now they’re implementing it and they’re talking about it.
Even the big sports writers, so that somebody must be on to me, i guess somebody is on to me so anyways, let’s uh, let’s get right into our our boxing segment for monday, thanks again for coming out here at talkandfight.
com, and i’m going to be talking tonight About the fight on the weekend, the past weekend, the fight that i’ve been waiting for for over a year, it went down in new york, city, madison square gardens, theater, that was the teo firmo lopez and george camboso jr fight.
Well guys i watched every inch of it.
I hope you guys did too and uh it didn’t disappoint it was.
It was right to the wire literally uh.
I was a little surprised at the end with the outcome um, because i always thought that taya firmle was the best the biggest and the baddest and the best up-and-comer uh pretty much anywhere, and i i did not think he was gon na lose this one.
But i knew he had a.
There was a chance and if you look at my past episode with george camposo junior guys, if you go back, i inspected george and i really liked george’s situation back then.
Uh being the oceanic champion and all the thunder from down under, as we talked about he’s the, and he is now the most famous boxer in australian history, good on you, george god bless you dude, you showed up, you did the job and i’m really proud of Them so, let’s get into the fight a little more all right, so uh, basically right from the start guys, you could see that teo firmo was uh.
Quite the bigger man uh size, wise uh.
He had to cut a lot of weight.
He always does have to cut a lot of weight before these uh.
These fights, because he’s he’s getting to the point where it’s actually affecting his ability to move forward in that division and keep it.
It probably was one of the one of the factors involved in his demise that night, so the cutting of weight was hurt, was hurt him a bit he’s.
He was the harder puncher he’ll always be a harder puncher, but george camposo jr.
That night showed me that he is actually a hard puncher as well like harder than i.
I had seen him in the earlier fights with uh, selby and bay, but he kind of brought it uh.
He brought it full circle on the fight on the weekend and i was blown away by by his performance, so teo firmo.
Again, let’s get back to what he’s all about uh.
He was very confident going into the fight, as we all know, but that could have played a little bit uh against him as well.
Maybe he looked uh past george, a little bit to the to the big big, big, big, payday and uh.
That might have hurt him a bit and the one thing that i noticed about teo firmo that i kind of liked is he actually you know the one thing that he did well.
Is he had great interviews, great interviewer, he’s good he’s good with uh, promoting himself and stuff of that sort, he’s a very confident kid and that’s great.
So the interviews were great, but the performance honestly guys wasn’t his best.
So uh, maybe a little less interviews there to firmo a little more training uh.
I don’t know you know there was a lot of factors involved and we’re going to get into it, guys right now factors and stuff and how the fight went and why it went.
The way it went so that’s tail, george, on the other hand, came in well prepared.
He was training and training and training and training and training seven days a week for a year and a half for this fight he over trained.
If there is such a thing uh, he was very calm in the ring.
If you guys saw very calm fighter uh, he he was confident uh.
He brought a a fantastic game plan.
Now his camp camposo’s camp there had a like a fabulous fabulous game plan to win this fight, and i inspected every round watched it two or three times to see exactly what was going on and and he handled everything i mean teo firmo was throwing.
You know he was throwing his left, his jab, his jab, his jab, throwing out the job and george was not going to decide not going to decide, come with the overhand right.
The overhand right boom right on the beak every time and tail had no answer for that, because he just he didn’t know what to do.
He got confused.
He got frustrated.
He literally was frustrated with the whole situation now.
The other thing that really stood out to me was, which was fantastic guys.
Fantastic, was the fact that the fight was in the middle of the ring.
Now that was obviously planned by camboso’s camp.
Do not go against the ropes.
Do not get him pushing you up against the ropes into the corner, it didn’t even happen once in the fight.
It was toe to toe right in the middle.
You know there was a lot quite a lot of clutching and grabbing and head head.
You know had uh grabs and all this kind of stuff, and and but it was in the middle of the ring, so that was that was apparent to me that um that camboso uh did not want to get into a fight up against the ropes.
Like you know, like a foreman rope, a dope alley type thing, but he that was that was a fantastic way to deal with with uh with teo now in in the fight.
If you guys watched it, uh teo was knocked down early.
I believe it was the second round he actually got knocked down.
He got right back up, but it’s only the second time that he’s ever been knocked down in a fight and uh.
There’S there’s there’s some video about i’m gon na mention it now because we’re talking about him getting knocked down because i’m like really like how does the guy get knocked down? I don’t know, but i did some research on in regards to that situation, and you know what sparring two months before this fight two months before this fight, he was sparring with jose benavidez uh a kid out of his camp david benavidez brother.
We talked about jose and uh and uh david on earlier episodes, and i’m telling you uh.
It was a problem, so the guy that came out his name was uh, jose velazquez.
I believe uh valenzuela something of this sort.
It’S a kid out of guys check this out a kid out of the benavidez camp, so they wanted him to come out.
Excuse me guys! Oh here we go here’s my toronto maple leaf koozie, my favorite koozie, so thought i’d show you that so he came uh.
He started sparring with a tail and what happened was um.
He kind of over sh, he kind of was nailing him hard and the next thing you know tail went down.
This is inspiring now that infuriated tales father and apparently he uh.
He got into a big argument with jose benavidez in regards to that, and it was crazy.
Now it’s not his fault.
They hired him to be a sparring partner for teo.
It happened, but they basically were blaming them for something that he didn’t really have any anything to do with.
He was just doing what he was asked to do.
He was getting paid, so he did it well.
So you can’t really give him any bad.
Uh publicity on that the kid that did it he’s only 19 or 20.
he’s an up and comer, i believe, he’s 6-0 or something of that sort.
Right now, but look out for this guy, i believe his name is jose valenzuela or valen yeah valenzuela.
Something of that sort.
So we’ll look more into that.
If you guys got any comments about that, let me know vasquez, maybe vasquez, but it was a bad scene for them.
Now in the fight uh george did himself get knocked down.
Taiyo uh knocked him down.
I think it was the eighth round or ninth round, so they both had a knock down.
George got right back up and uh continued to fight in the middle of the ring, which was fantastic it.
It did hurt him.
If there was, you know, he did get hurt, but he he he knows this is this.
Is this? Is his big chance to become the unified lightweight world champion instantly and uh take care of his family and friends for the rest of their lives and that’s what he did he got up and uh.
He just continued to fight uh he around.
I believe it was the tenth round uh he cut teo firmo lopez, badly, a very bad cut uh.
I was shocked because i’ve never seen tail cut like that and if you guys haven’t seen the fight or the guys that did watch the fight, it was uh.
He had to go get checked out by the doctors a couple of times and uh.
They were pretty concerned about that cut and it was bleeding profusely.
So the fight kept going on great fight lots of blood all of a sudden.
They come to the championship rounds.
It’S basically an even fight all right, so the 11th round even round in my mind, pretty even there’s no definitive winner.
Now the 12th round comes in final round guys.
Teo firmo lopez beat lomanchenko in round 12.
Okay of that fight, so i assumed he was going to come out and do the same thing in round 12 and he did not he actually, in my opinion, he lost round 12, and that is the reason why uh he lost the fight.
That’S the only reason why, because it was so so close, i mean it doesn’t get much closer than that really, but he won the.
He won that championship round.
Camposo nice work, george, i’m super proud of you, man that was killer.
I loved it.
I thought it was amazing.
Like honestly, i was like: let’s go, let’s give her, you know what i mean so now.
Where do they go from there? Really? What do they do now? Teo doesn’t have any belts and george has all the belts.
So i’m sure there’s got to be a rematch clause because there just has to be all right.
So i’m going to predict uh there’s going to be a lopez, camboso junior, rematch, fight, two uh, who knows when it’ll be it could be after say: camposo has one defense against a guy like say: devin haney, all right, but devin.
Haiti is fighting this weekend, so that could all change and we’re going to talk about that after this guy’s.
You know moving forward in the show we’re going to talk about the fights coming up this weekend, but as far as i see, if haiti doesn’t uh fight cambodzo, it’s gon na be uh, teo and cambo, so junior two and uh my prediction on that one.
Well, we’ll we’ll find out closer to the match.
Okay, so that’s all i got for the fight.
George camposo ends up being the winner.
He is now the unified lightweight heavy uh lightweight champion of the world and uh all good for him.
He’S now a huge celebrity in his own countries, the biggest biggest thing since kangaroos and uh and koalas.
If you know what i mean so good on you, george god bless you ball tail.
I know you’re coming back faster, harder furious, because that’s what we do here at talk and fight and uh – that’s that’s gon na be a hell of a battle.
The two so we’ll just keep our eyes out for that one all right! So, let’s move on here we’re gon na talk a little bit about the fights that are on this weekend that i’m gon na be watching.
You guys might want to watch these ones coming up this weekend.
The uh, the first fight that i’m going to be watching this weekend is going to be december.
4Th mgm grand las vegas eddie hearn match room on the zone all right again.
That zone is going to be mr devin haney, who we just talked about versus jojo diaz for the wbc lightweight title.
So there you go so haiti if he retains the title, is going to fight camposo junior for all the titles, even more titles in the lightweight division.
So that is going to be what i’m watching.
You guys want to watch that one devin haiti is a hell of a fighter, fantastic fighter and uh.
You know moving on towards either one of teo, even if maybe it’s devin haney against teo firmo lopez.
We don’t know so we’ll see what happens with that.
But that’s going to be a great fight, then, on saturday night i believe december 5th staples center, los angeles, california, united states.
We’Ve got al haymon’s, uh pbc on show time and pay-per-view.
We got another killer fight.
This is a monster of a fight gervanta.
The tank davis all right versus isaac, cruz all right, wba, regular lightweight title so like this is these are two huge huge.
I’M talking, really big fights and really big guests.
You know what i mean all right and uh on the undercard of that one.
We also have another guy that i uh had an episode about a little while ago, stefan uh fondura from fandora.
I love fondura uh he’s fighting sergio garcia in the super welterweight division and that’s a fight you might want to watch.
I’Ve fondura is, is a serious cat.
