Whoop but sorry see i censored myself there, that’s good, that’s good.
I played i played squash when i was young, but not handball anyway.
Uh welcome once again to another edition of talk and fight.
I’Ve got mike orr with me and we are knuckling up.
Another great show lined up for us.
That’S right knuckle up so uh yeah we’re ready.
So i hear you’ve got uh a great fighter out of newark new jersey lined up for us.
Yes, yes covered all right yeah.
What’S your name stevenson give me that name again shoot car stevenson like tupac, you got it stevenson yeah, i’m at 15-0, eight knockouts uh wbo featherweight, title holder.
Up until uh he moved up a weight class and he’s uh decided to give up that belt um.
He is very exciting um.
Not only is he a perfect record in the ring he’s perfect record in the streets uh getting arrested back in 2018, who’s a bear knuckler, oh yeah, bare knuckler him and his buddy decided to beat up a couple of people in a parking garage in florida.
You know he received, he received a one year, one year, probation and uh 50 hours community service, but uh he’s got good people in his back uh.
You know in his corner, you know they’ve, i guess kept him on the straight straight and narrow uh, he’s managed and coached by his uh, his idol uh, andre ward, who um surprisingly enough was one of the most decorated uh us amateur boxers of all time, and This kid shikhar stephenson is the next highly decorated amateur boxer to come out of the u.
s besides his mentor, so it’s pretty cool you’re uh he’s he’s very exciting, graham um they’re calling him the next uh floyd mayweather.
But we all know those are some big shoes to fill and uh.
You know he’s only 23, so let’s not uh put that kind of pressure on him because uh you know those are.
Those are some big shoes to fill man, but he is definitely um.
He definitely fights a lot like him.
You know he’s relentless on the body uh his his ability to uh.
You know change levels in his punching and his combos.
You know they float like water, he’s very fluid four or five shot: combos um yeah man, the guys.
The guys, the next big thing, i’m looking uh forward to this summer, actually um, there’s talks that uh he will be fighting to unify the belts in the next weight up uh.
I believe he has the ability to he’s a young kid and uh.
You know he fights he fights like uh like a veteran man and uh.
Believe me is uh, highlight reels, exciting and uh for all you out there watching make sure you check him out uh, you know even check out his uh, his uh arrest, video man.
It’S just as exciting as his ring videos.
Man he’s uh.
He he really.
He really dominates with uh with the combos um in both videos, man, whether he’s in the ring or whether he’s on the street.
He fights clean, he’s accurate.
His punches are fast and you can’t hit him he’s just an amazing fighter to watch watch out for him.
I’M glad that uh somebody’s kept him on the you know on the straight path because he could have went real south for him and you know being from a family of nine uh.
His childhood probably was you know not so not so great, because, probably you know a lot of money, a lot of money to raise nine kids, so you know, i’m glad, i’m glad to see that he’s uh been kept on the right path.
I’M sure that’s because of andre ward as manager and uh we’re gon na see a lot of big things from this kid.
Uh watch his fights.
You know 15-0, that’s great, quick question uh before you get jet off there um when he was arrested for that uh altercation in the parking lot at that at that time, was he a trained fighter or was that raw talent? No, that was that was two.
That was two years ago when he was uh.
I believe he was 11 or 12-0 at that point.
So we’re talking about a pro.
You know a pro fighter two years ago, that was an undefeated, an undefeated boxer and uh.
Honestly, when you watch the cctv video uh from the parking garage, you can tell this guy’s a professional man just uh the way.
The way he delivers these blows to this guy man, you know and and just keeping him down on the ground.
With these, like one little uppercut shots and stuff, is you know what he’s he’s fun to watch? Man he’s fun to watch.
I stumbled on that video.
It put me on to his his actual ring videos, and this is what i actually this is.
This is what made me take notice of this kid and uh, with all the research that i’ve done so far.
You know what yeah man he’s he’s he’s he’s a a prospect and he’s you know the future of boxing man.
We have a lot of good kids that are coming up in this sport right now.
You know all the guys that we watch right now, they’re in their prime man and – and you know in a few years, there’s going to be a complete change around in the talent pool, and this kid is one of the kids to watch man.
He’S he’s also listed on, i believe the uh espn’s uh 25 under 25 list uh and i’m telling you the talent pool is is – is becoming very deep and uh.
You know we’re about to see a big change in boxing and we’re about to see real, exciting fights.
Man, pure knockout artists.
