[, Music ], damn yeah [, Music ]; well, it’s not close to FEMA Rocky, but it’ll do welcome talking fight fans for another episode of the Friday night boxing panel featuring Yours, Truly Mike Orr and, of course, two-time former World Heavyweight Champion Witherspoon.
How You Doing guys great, isn’t this a rock’em sock’em weekend coming up? I mean I can’t think how many fights there are wow.
I was telling Mike earlier Tim.
I was scrolling through BoxRec.
I got to like he’s he’s having technical issues already all right, yeah um.
I I just before we get started.
I just wanted to make a quick little comment.
Throughout the week on my new show, I’ve been uh telling the world about all the different heavyweights uh who compete uh on a world-class level, professionally uh in the heavyweight Division and uh I got ta say of all the guys.
I was highlighting a few names.
I want to bring out Sunny konto from Philadelphia.
I’M sure Tim knows the guy uh Cole blind Christensen out of Iceland.
I believe he’s undefeated Frank Sanchez out of USA, let alone Deontay Wilder, who will I’m sure we’re gon na get to in a second uh, Andy Ruiz right, he’s kind of like coming back uh.
You know, and I’m not that doesn’t even mention the the the Poo Labs or the wallins, even Michael Hunter, so there’s roughly speaking 10 names that I can think of head in the heavyweight division that aren’t British but but are certainly uh.
Oh by the way – and I haven’t even mentioned my favorite and yours – big baby Jared Anderson – I’m telling you man, uh, there’s an awful lot of heavyweights uh, who are in the top 10 already, who aren’t British and an awful lot more below that top 10? Who aren’t British but climbing, quickly and proving themselves in the ring week after week? As a matter of fact, I forgot to mention – I should have mentioned in our own backyard uh where Mike and I live uh just a few miles north in Richmond Hill, julong um.
He’S fighting tonight he’s a heavyweight, I believe he’s undefeated as well.
I guess he is he’s 19-0 and he’s taking on um erdogan yeah.
Yes, could you hear me? Yes? Okay, I’m sorry! No God, sorry! So there you go! I just wanted to introduce this by saying.
We have more than enough to look forward in the next year in the heavyweight division, even without Tyson Fury and the shenanigans involving Anthony, Joshua and or anyone else who thinks they’re big enough to take on Tyson.
If you’re, he is retired and that’s where it’s going to end up right now as of this moment, because I’d rather spend my time talking about some of these other upcoming fights.
Yes, one of them is featuring Deontay Wilder, but Mike.
Why don’t you recap us on a few of the big fights coming up this weekend? Oh, my God, are there fights man um Jesus, let’s uh, let’s talk about it, uh guys October 15th, if you guys are awake at 4am eastern time, uh you’re gon na have the privilege of watching the Paro Jarvis card.
Honestly, I need to talk about this.
One a little bit just because you know uh, it’s it’s Australia, uh! We got some great fighters on this.
One leonparo Brock Jarvis will Clash for the WBO Global silver lightweight title at Southbank, uh in in Brisbane, and this one’s going to be live on his own guys um as matchroom break new ground with their first show in Australia, yep yeah.
This is a this is a huge one, uh sorry to interrupt.
Isn’T it isn’t Sky Nicholson on that fight? Yes, yes, yes, yes, you were one of my favorite female Fighters.
I think definitely she’s she’s going to be looking at uh.
You know extend that unbeated streak to 5-0 with this fight where she takes on Christina Jacobs, and this one guys is for the vacant Commonwealth boxing Council feather title yeah, so this is.
This is a great one man.
This is a good one for women.
I know that there’s a big woman card that we are going to touch base on um yeah, but this card definitely one you want to watch.
If you can get up on that time, maybe even set a PVR so that you can um.
You know record it and watch it later, but Liam Paro, Brock, Jarvis, they’re fighting for the WBO uh, Global silver or Global super light.
Um also Caesar Mateo Tapia.
I know that I’ve I’ve profiled this guy before um I and then also uh, Abdullah Mayweather uh.
This one is for the WBA Oceana super middle uh.
There’S a lot of titles on this card, guys up for grabs um, also Dempsey, McKean is taking on Patrick Corte for the ibf Intercontinental heavy title, um Dempsey, McKean 21-0 undefeated heavyweight there um another one for you guys to watch out for definitely um.
Also on the card: yes, Scott Nicholson, we love watching her uh.
Definitely definitely some great talent, um rounding up the bottom of this card.
Here, uh we’ve got rocky Ogden taking on Ben Cameron, hands for the Australian super feather title along with Dylan the Australian National boxing Federation, Australian super Welter title and to end off and run off this card.
Man Galen Tate talked about this kid man.
In that light, division taking on uh Rhys Evans uh, this one is for the Australian National boxing Federation Australian light.
So this whole cart.
This whole card that we’re talking about here, Lee and perro, is nothing but titles, title shots or title matches, which always makes her great great fighting.
We know that absolutely so, uh yeah, that’s one uh and then we’re gon na touch.
We got ta touch base on it.
We got to talk about the big card that everybody’s talking about is Wilder the Wilder card.
We got to talk about this one for a bit the one shot and it’s over card yeah.
This is this: is it man, um Wilder, has weighed in 20? I believe it’s 26 or 27 pounds under what he came in at uh in the last fight against uh Tyson Fury.
Really, yes, uh he’s also got a new defense that he’s been working on guys.
So will we see Wilder pull it off some great defense into some evasive moves in the ring? Shall we see it? No, the champ says no.
I say his defense will be avoid being hit at all costs.
Well, he’s he’s doing a little bit of ducking and dodging in that ring there and looking you know, we’ll see what happens hey when, when okay or just a slag, we can hear it, we can hear you champ.
Okay, let me see your lips moving, so it’s okay, it’s just my video okay! So, there’s not that many people around that uh that that could you know to get him to get them back on on track with the defense and stuff like that.
I would like to see now I’ve seen some stuff, but I see some stuff of them trying to work stuff out if it’s confusing not to me but the waiting on it.
I don’t think I’m gon na find anybody to do that.
It’S gon na be hard movement getting out of the way Stevens, where you guaranteed to block the shot.
When it’s close to you, you know, like the old times, did um and there’s a move where you move around real fast, like uh Mayweather get hit.
That’S a deep and what what is more dependable is the one that you give you your body is everything is tight.
You catch it.
You fight your counter back Movement Like fast movement and stuff, like that.
That’S a deal if I could do but it’s harder to teach the one saying their cat s watching knocked out that way.
So I don’t know you know what we’ll we’ll see we’ll see when it gets underway, guys we’ll see when this gets underway.
If you guys need to yeah Eastern Time 9 pm Eastern October 15th, Deontay Wilder the happy part I’ll be happy to see it too, because you know what he is.
The greatest you know he’s on a mission to become two times hey.
I hey I’m down with it, but hey Tim Tim.
If Deontay survives I’ll be happy, I think helenius is going to kill him literally literally.
No, you know.
Okay, while there’s 42.
, I don’t know 31 Kos he’s on a mission to become a two-time heavyweight champion.
We know this his first Reign included.
10 title defenses uh, you know a feat accomplished by only seven heavyweights in boxing history, the bronze bomber now returns to Barclays, uh and he’s ready man.
He feels he feels rejuvenated um and he wants to rejuvenate the heavyweight division.
When he captures this WBC belt, he’s he’s I’ve seen him the video of them and um.
It was no problem.
I seen a video of uh Malik working with him, but I confused not confused.
I knew what they was trying.
I don’t know what they was trying to do, but it didn’t look, it didn’t look.
It looked amateurs and stuff um.
We was trying they’re trying to work on defense.
They don’t have the right person yeah around them.
The video look at it.
Okay, it didn’t look too good to me.
That’S what they think defensive.
They think defensive.
It might be this much a defense, you know, but it’s there’s a big.
This big you got to get it all a lot of it yeah.
Let me let me throw something into the mix here before we move along.
I wonder if Deontay, if deonte’s managers are telling him either a take it slow at the outset, uh or just go in there for that quick knockout punch as fast as you can get it over with, because the longer you wait, the more chances are helenius is Gon na believe you said, I can’t believe you said his manager.
No, I respect you, you, my man, you’re, my man, you say trainers.
You said it’s managers, I wouldn’t even expect them to even know anything.
I wouldn’t even talk to them.
I talked and I’m about getting our partners getting the business part together.
There is some some managers and trainers that the boxing, but when I wouldn’t even I wouldn’t even mention that I’m only saying that, because of his health, his health, his health worries me.
I’Ve said it before he implant.
The game plan here for Wilder is going to be walking.
Is he sick? That’S what it’s going to be like no remember the last beating he took from Tyson Fury man.
He definitely got some brain damage in that one.
He lost some weight.
He lost some weight right he’s coming he’s coming like 27 pounds under what he was at when he fought um uh um Tyson, Fury, Wilder weighed in at 214 and a half pounds for this fight.
Whoa yeah he’s in there at 214.
, Robert Delaney’s Robert helenius has weighed in at 253 and a quarter so wow yeah, so helenius Helen is outweighing this guy by 40 pounds in the ring.
This is gon na, be it’s gon na, be a serious fight.
Man and you know what maybe yeah, maybe I don’t care about the weight, but maybe Deontay lost that weight to be a little more Elusive and invasive in the ring working on that defense that he says that he’s been working on.
But we won’t find out until this gets underway, guys so no matter what you can put up, what all training videos you, while you can put up all the crap that you want on social media, but until you get in that ring and show us something different.
You ain’t done [, __, ] different.
That’S how I see it.
One last thought: uh, you know uh, the betting page is all favor uh Deontay Wilder to win this one.
Unbelievably, I I can’t believe it anyway.
Also on that card is Kayla plant who’s.
Looking to return exactly that’s what I was just about to say, I’m saying I’m looking forward to seeing Caleb plant take on Anthony Darrell.
This is going to be a great super little fight, um.
Also on the card.
I’M looking forward to Gary Antonio Russell um who’s.
19-0, taking on Emmanuel Rodriguez uh, this could be a good one, Frank Sanchez.
Another heavy here we go taking on Carlos Negron for the WBZ is Frank Sanchez.
Unbeaten, yes, 20-0 see that’s what I’m saying Carl ranked number ranked number 12 ranked number 12 and uh right now he’s fighting for that WBC Continental America’s title this weekend, uh so be on the lookout for that uh another another.
There’S a couple a couple of great uh: you know heavyweight matches on this card lower down in the in the night you got uh Giovanni bruzon, who’s, seven and one taking on James Evans who’s 401, and that is scheduled for six rounds in the heavy division.
Also, we got an eight rounder uh Jurgen foreign taking on Michael uh, Kofi uh, this one’s gon na be a good one uh.
You know Jurgen he’s ranked 218th in that heavy division right now, but he is 3-0 looking to stay undefeated and move up man.
So we got some great uh great heavyweights coming up here, also uh Michael Rivera 23-0 taking on Jerry Perez uh, this one’s in the light division, uh, also Keyshawn Williams, taking on Julio Rosa Walter Wade.
There’S some extra question when you finish: go ahead, go ahead! Champ! I’M gon na ask you a question.
Okay, remember when I was saying about the opponents that don’t bother, beat and knocked out and they wouldn’t last remember I could have made him make a mistake.
I didn’t make a mistake, but I judged I’d have judged you soon because it’s a different era of opponents.
You know when I, when I was uh when we were fighting they left to me they lesser but yeah.
You know the good thing, I’m saying so.
Yeah, definitely they change.
So I quitized the error.
I criticized no right, you understand what I’m saying of opponents is new, is whoever of opponents, none of them in the last still the same kind of like in a way, but they wouldn’t last some of them.
Wouldn’T last, but most of them went last with us, but there’s a new.
He deserves to get that, put in order that God prays and everything, because it’s a different era of opponents also and dip the lightning out of days.
So you got to look at it that way just send yeah yeah it does.
It makes sense a little bit.
The opponents are different, they’re, a different era, and you know what you Tim.
You came up in the era where uh, where boxing was real gritty.
It was a real dollars.
You know you guys it was.
It was true, two Gladiators entering a ring and one Gladiator winning uh.
You know very, very you know Romanesque kind of style.
It was very, very different kind of time in boxing than it is today.
Today is more all these guys are being they’re being trained and and geared up as professional athletes.
You know the Train, the training programs, and you know your eating programs and all that kind of stuff.
It’S a way different now than it was back then, and you know yeah man, I don’t think I don’t think some of today’s guys could you know, handle some of the uh the opponents back, then man, so we got ta, give them modern day credit.
You do you, do you got to give them modern day credit for for what they, what for what’s been put in front of them? You know what I mean they’re, the best who’s been put in front of you today, so yeah.
I understand what you’re saying um.
We got to talk about the big card.
That’S also expect uh uh respect us also, all right go ahead, exactly exactly exactly um big one that everybody’s been talking about.
Definitely hany camposis too uh fight TV, ESPN, plus October 15th, 9 p.
Eastern time, you guys aren’t going to want to miss this man uh.
This is uh.
This is a great fight man, any comboses stuff, don’t forget to Ben yeah, don’t forget to kind of oh we’re going to talk about him too.
Damn I just found out Haney camposis first Tangled June 5th uh in Melbourne as uh Victoria 1229 fans packed Marvel Stadium to watch the world’s best light flyways unify the division, uh Haney uh neutralize cambosis and earned a clear points verdict to become the Undisputed champion.
Here we go guys; this is about to get underway.
Uh part two of this Haney who’s.
Now 28, no 15 Knockouts returns to Melbourne, uh intent on repeating his first um fight the victory that propelled him up that mythical pound for pound rankings.
The dream has been a history making Phenom since turning professional in Mexico less than one month after his 17th birthday, he made his U.
S debut in Las Vegas, only Manny Pacquiao card um undercard in April 16, uh 2016.
and at 19 he became the youngest licensed promoter.
In boxing history uh, he was awarded the WBC World Championship in October of 2019 and defeated the that belt for or sorry defended that belt four times before taking the 8 000 plus mile journey to battle camposis in his homeland, where he overcame the adversity and his Father and trainer Bill Haney was granted a temporary Visa by the Australian government less than three days before this fight.
If you guys remember this, this was all this big talk.
We were talking about a couple months back and now we got no part two cambosis.
He was 20 and one with Ted Knockouts became the toast of the sport with the decision verdict over tfoma Lopez last November, which was named ESPN’s upset of the year uh.
It was accumulation of a hard-fought journey for camposis.
He fought Malaysia, Greece, London, New York, Connecticut Las Vegas uh, as he graduated from Prospect and Contender for Ken BOCES, who had 12 of his first 13 Pro fights in Australia.
The Haiti super fight marks one of the most significant International sporting events to take place in Melbourne, so guys part two about to get underway for this one, for, unfortunately, it’s on the same day as all these other cards, so you’re gon na have to pick and Choose guys what fights you’re going to want to see out there for real um? Honestly, though, the Haney camposis card there’s some great um, there’s another heavyweight on here, Hemi ahio, I haven’t talked about this guy in a long time.
He hasn’t really been talked about in a long time, 19-0 taking on uh this one’s gon na be great man, and I got ta touch.
I got ta talk about it.
Our man Amari Jones yep is fighting uh against tej Singh uh and Amari stepping up for this one guys uh Mari 7-0 right now, uh his opponent.
Sixteen five and three that’s in the super Welter division, uh, definitely gon na be a great matchup.
Our man Amari Jones, I know he’s gon na, come through with a big victory on this one.
You know the kid eats sleeps and lives boxing a dedicated fighter.
Man dedicated uh Craftsman.
You know what it is.
Um David Nika is on the card.
We got hemiyahio, we got Lorenzo Simpson, um, chernika, Johnson, she’s, great yeah, trinika Johnson, take it on our girl, Susie Ramadan for the ibf World, Super Bantam and the winner of that supposed to take on miyamutu.
Yes, yes, this is what I’m talking about.
So we got some great great action in Australia getting underway.
I’M super excited for this man.
Oh guys be on the lookout October 21st.
We should be streaming uh Mia’s card here on this channel, which uh, which I’m happy to say that we’re in the works of putting together right now, so that you guys can see her fight like.
I watch her fight because it’s great uh she’s she’s honestly seriously highly decorated female uh about to blow up here internationally about to get known man, and we are definitely going to be having some fun watching this one along with her.
This is gon na be great uh.
The other card we got to touch on Graham, is gon na, be the old woman’s card.
Let’S touch on it because it was.
It was handled very well uh by uh Holly Donovan earlier today, uh anyone you’re talking flight fans out there interested in a full and in-depth explanation of not only the main event co-main event, but also all the undercard Fighters.
I highly recommend uh giving a listen to Holly show, but let’s let’s go with Mike.
Let’S, let’s see what uh you and I have to say about it uh I I really enjoyed the press conferences, they’ve been rather rambunctious.
These girls are heated.
Let me tell you: yeah: I’ve watched I’ve watched some press conferences in the last little while and I’m going to tell you man, these women are heated, they’re, standing Toe to Toe, nose to nose and they’re just exchanging words, happily in each other’s faces, letting each other Know who’s the man or sorry who’s, the woman in in uh who’s.
You know who’s gon na walk out the winner man.
It’S been a great if you’ve been following it guys.
If you haven’t trust me, there’s lots of clips on YouTube that you guys can check out man of these press conferences where these girls are meeting face to face before they jump in that ring and battle it out.
Like Champions uh, I can’t wait to see this one man, we all know Shields the guat, take it on Savannah Marshall.
This is a big one guys this one is about to get this.
One has been talked about for so much time and you know what oh well.
She beat her in the amateurs.
She be, it doesn’t effing matter.
That’S the amateurs different boxing game.
Both Fighters have have evolved so much since 10 years ago, who gives a [ __ ] stop talking about the amateurs talk about who they fought now all right, all right, all right, if you had, if you had one last dollar in your pocket, who would it Be on I’m saying: hey, you know what I don’t even want to talk about it.
I don’t even want to say it because I’m just so sick of it, but I I actually think and Carl will be surprised.
I my money’s on Savannah Marshall.
I think I think I think Savannah’s going to take this one to be honest, uh Savannah has dropped more dropped more of her opponents uh I do like Savannah’s style, she’s, very uh.
You know she fights very long.
Uh she’s got heavy hands uh.
She definitely has a great Ring IQ, but we can’t we can’t count out Shields man, but if I, if, if we talk about it, let’s, let’s be honest, Shields Shields last fight was so lackluster uh.
You know such a lackluster performance that honestly it was a snoozer.
I was not impressed and for the woman to be Undisputed in two-way classes, only boxer to be back-to-back gold medalists in the Olympics.
You got to be doing a little more honestly.
You got to be going in there.
You got to be slumping girls over.
You got to be kicking ass and and definitively winning these matches.
Man right, you know like you should be.
You should be in there destroying these women.
You should be coming through and you should seriously be able to dominate these people.
You shouldn’t, let somebody that’s not your caliber.
Take you the distance, it shouldn’t happen when you’re at that level.
So for that, for that I’m gon na say you know what Savannah Marshall she she may take this man, because you know Clarissa isn’t really that knockout artist kind of fighter um.
You know the T-Rex she’s, 27, 5.
68 inch reach.
You know she is the guat Emma cozen.
How does Emma cozin take her the distance? You know what I’m saying and it wasn’t.
It wasn’t really that you know like who’s Emma cozen fought.
Who is who has she proved? You know who has she proved? Well, honestly, truthfully she’s got 12 Knockouts uh of her 22 victories, so realistically yeah.
Maybe she did deserve to be in there right, but you know we got Savannah Marshall.
You know 12-0 10 of those wins coming by way of knockout.
So, let’s talk about uh, Michaela, Meyer and Alicia Baumgartner.
Definitely another great fight, another great fight, I’m loving this one, oh Cedric, says Clarissa will smash Savannah.
Okay, okay, we’ll see it’s gon na, be a great fight either way what you know what I would love for.
My girl Clarissa to come through and smash it because you know what she’s got to put a lot of this talk to bed.
That’S what she needs to do.
If she comes out and literally walks through Savannah, then there’s enough said, then you know what yeah take take that take that title: take that name gwat greatest woman of all time and roll with it tattoo that [ __ ] right on your forehead.
You know, but until we see these girls fight, you know what I’m done.
Let’S move on to the next one, because you know what Shields and Marshall’s been talked about way too much way too much.
Okay, so Michaela mayor 17-0, taking on Alicia Baumgardner baumgarner, you know her last couple: outings have been very uh very entertaining I’m not gon na lie knock knocking a lot very.
You know we got Michaela mayor, you know 32, 5, 9, 66 and a half inch reach.
You know she’s she’s been in there with you know.
Her last fight was Jennifer Han uh.
Before that I believe she fought uh, uh, mavia, hamadush and then uh, I believe, before hamadu she was fought.
She fought uh Erica Ferris, so you know: she’s she’s fought some notable women here, man in the last uh in the last little while, but you look at Alicia, baumgarner and her performances have been have been.
You know pretty nice man uh.
You know in her last three two of them won by a unanimous decision.
She took out Terry Harper in the fourth round of the scheduled 10 rounder uh for the IBO and WBC World Super feather titles um.
You know she’s taking off Vanessa Bradford uh.
You know that was a unanimous decision.
What do you think who you liking for this one, I’m I’m gon na have to say I’m gon na have to say I do like Alicia baumgarner.
I do believe she’s got.
You know she does have what it takes to take this one away from McKayla Miller, but I think I think mayor is just ready for uh.
I like Alicia Baumgartner as well um just going with my gut on this one, because this is evenly split.
It really is it’s going to be a tight just just as in the main event, it’s going to be tight.
Uh bought battle, uh flip of the coin in terms of uh who you’re picking and why you’re picking them uh and that’s why I do like this.
How this has been set up? It’S uh, it’s almost nationalistic and it’s uh who you’re, who you’re picking here, except for the remaining fights which are practically all team, GB members or food.
You know: Caroline Dubois.
We got ebony Jones, Shannon Ryan, uh, Jenny, Fox uh, Chris artenstall Lauren price.
Sarah Lehman April Hunter and the girl that I profiled today uh Giorgio O’Connor uh, there’s a lot of a lot of great great women on here man.
I tell you what I am curious to see how Jenny don’t know how to pronounce her last name.
Judy Fuchs want to be careful how you say that last one yeah, I’m pretty sure it’s pronounced the bad way, uh, let’s, let’s just say, Ginny Jenny.
If I’m not mistaken, uh correct me, if I’m wrong here was it was it I’m pretty sure it was her who during the Olympics, was banned or suspended because of sexual activity, some stuff like that.
So it’s a really weird weird story, really Baxter.
But the point is that she’s back in the ring and I’m curious to see how she goes tomorrow, night.
That’S good! That’S just just a curiosity Point uh, the other one, there’s a couple of girls that I’m really looking forward to seeing um because we’ve heard so much about them.
We’Ve heard a lot about the team GB because of the the Fantastic media coverage they get.
But there are some great fighters on that card on the undercard who are going to be very entertaining and worthwhile to watch but boy.
Oh boy, do we have a night full of other entertainment? We do what I love about this uh this one here, uh the girlfriends man, Lauren pricing, uh, oh yeah.
I love how these two fight on the same pad together.
You know their Partners um, you know, live together box together and they’ll fight together.
It’S great they’re, usually usually, where you see one, you see them both right.
So this this one’s gon na be good um.
I can’t wait.
You know this is a good card.
Uh Ginny, though uh she’s 1-0, with one Narco right.
This is gon na, be your second fight, yeah 34 South uh, five, four she’s taking on Gemma rig uh.
Who is five and four right? You know 50 fighter here you know win kind of fighter, so I guess this is kind of like uh.
You know a little step up for her uh kind of test, her to see where she’s at uh.
Definitely after her last performance, you know she did take on uh.
I believe it was uh Randy Morales, who was four and three uh going into that one and uh.
She won that by KO in the fourth round man uh laid into that one, and that was scheduled for six.
So I’m kind of curious to see how she’s gon na do in the ring uh.
I can’t I can’t wait to see her get back in there.
Uh I’m excited for this one me too uh.
As I said, notwithstanding uh the two main events, if you will uh the undercard is packed and it’s solid, I’m you know going going back a step there.
I am curious to see how Caroline Dubois fared, because uh she’s stepping up from her Olympic showing and uh and she’s, got some uh.
What do you say boxing in her blood kind of kind of you know? Definitely did you what did he was or uh heavy in that game for sure she’s thinking she’s, taking on 40 41 ranked uh, Molina yeah she’s, ten she’s 10 wins 14 losses.
One draw, definitely um.
You know somebody who’s uh.
I guess we’ll call a gatekeeper or level uh level keeper big boss.
You know you want to get to the next level you’re going to pass the levels boss uh.
This is pretty much what this is looking like for her Caroline, you know: she’s 3-0 yeah.
Right now, this is her only her fourth fight as a professional she’s, stepping it up man, that’s what I’d like I’d like to see this uh.
You know she’s challenging herself uh.
This is gon na, be a great fight so guys, if you uh, if you do tend to tune into this one make sure you check out some of the undercard.
Don’T just don’t just sit there and tune in for the last, because I’m telling you there’s gon na be a lot of great fights on this all women’s card.
Honestly, you know Caroline Dubois ebony Jones, Shannon Ryan, Giorgio Connor, Jenny Foods, Chris art install Lauren price.
Sarah Lehman April Hunter – these are all these women are all the future.
The the future they’re the next 10 15 years of boxing these women man.
So these are names you guys are going to hear for the next 10 years in women’s boxing, so make sure that you check them out, give them the opportunity you know to get to get known man give them that opportunity by watching them you will not be Upset we will, and certainly let’s not forget about uh the Australians that are that are fighting down under and uh, and also the Americans and and the Canadians uh.
Quite frankly, uh yeah, we haven’t heard of her lately, but Mary Spencer’s got a an unblemished, uh undefeated record.
I think she’s 7-0.
Now so you know the women’s boxing within this past year certainly turned it up a notch.
I can’t believe that I mean just last year we were talking about.
You know whether we could help them, and now it seems like they’ve, really eclipsed what we’re doing on their behalf, uh great stuff out of the women and and it’s it’s heart and soul, heart and soul, type type of fighting.
That’S what we like uh.
They tend not to leave in the hands of the judges, they tend to go for it.
Um yeah we’ve had more.
We’Ve had more than enough interviews with women fighters who tell us, you know that they brawl with the best of them, but they know how to fight is the point.
They know how to fight and they’ve been taught well they’ve been trained.
Well, they they eat.
Well, they live well um, you know they live to fight, they fight to live yeah, definitely um other than that there is.
There is one more card, guys um.
If you’re ready for this one, this one is going to start off your Saturday, uh mcgrail Espinosa.
All right, yeah, the probellum card, getting underweight 2 p.
Eastern time, um Peter mcgrail, says victory over Alexander Espinosa will be the Launchpad towards title fights and big things.
Next year, uh mcgrail shared a final stare down with Nicaragua and puncher Espinoza Friday’s weigh-in ahead of the headline fight on probellum Liverpool.
Two uh future world champion has only had four fights as a professional, but the Liverpool Indian Stellar amateur career means he is ready for title class and mcgrail who tipped the scales at 124 22 pounds at the uh Olympia knows a win over the experience Espinoza, who Catapult him towards fights with domestic Rivals: Jason Cunningham, Liam Davies and gamaliafi um fighter fighters.
The Everton fan is already confident of beating you know he’s already confident uh at the moment in time.
You know, I think I think Peter mcgrail’s brother’s on that fight too.
I I believe yeah the big rails are both on here they’re, both on that they’re both on that card, and I think – and I think I think both of the cafes are on that card as well Cafe and his older brother uh on this one.
We we have on this card, it’s headlined by James James Dickens, um different and then, and this one’s for the IBM.
That’S gon na be a good fight.
Guys, that’s gon na be a good fight.
Yeah, it’s gon na be great.
It’S gon na be great.
Both these guys, man, uh, you know, Dickens is 31-4 uh.
The lemony is 18 and one this one’s for that world feather title IBO, uh, mcgrail, Alexander Espinoza, Joe mcgrail, is taking on uh Alexander Taylor uh this one.
You know he Joe mcgrail’s, only 5-0 he’s stepping up man he’s fighting Alexander Taylor, who is 20 36 and two so definitely has a hell of a lot of ring.
Experience um been around the block.
Yeah I’ve been around the block, he’s been there uh Steve parents.
He was 3-0 is taking on Angelo uh, uh Turco, uh, who’s, 8 26 and two uh.
Then you know we got William William Cauley who’s 2-0, taking on Angel Chavez, um and John Edwardson, taking on uh Simas volvasinas.
Who is ready for this one? Seven 103 and oh he’s been around the block twice: uh yeah that tomato can’s been opened so much oh yeah uh.
Then we got places Mikey young uh.
You know what it sounds like that tomato can’s been open once or twice exactly, but but guys don’t forget.
Without tomato cans, we wouldn’t be able to test and display the talents of the up-and-coming fighters as much as people don’t understand it.
We need them in boxing they’re there for a reason.
So, just because his record, you know he’s got 103 losses doesn’t mean that he doesn’t know what he’s doing in that ring.
He is being used to test the young to put them through their Paces to to help them learn how to fight in the paid race.
You know, he’s gon na put the pressure on him.
That’S what he’s there for he’s to put pressure on this Prospect to make sure that this Prospect can you know, provide the same kind of accuracy in his punching and it’s striking that he can.
When he’s not under pressure, this is a test.
This is definitely a test and a showcasing.
We’Re gon na see great fight and we’re gon na see this kid get pushed by this guy who has 103 losses.
Man there’s a reason why they keep bringing this guy.
In because he is he’s meant to take these kids and help them get to that next level, maybe adorable yeah, that’s uh! That’S you know, there’s uh, there’s not much going on other than we got to talk about.
We got to talk about the Canadian card because we’re from We’re from Canada yeah.
Let’S talk about it a little bit all right.
It features two heavyweights yeah.
Do you have these uh uh erdogan uh, who is 18 and five will be taken on Jung? Long Zhang 19-0 – this one here is at Richmond in Richmond Hill uh.
This one Ontario athletic commission uh.
I can’t wait to see this man this.
This should be good man, uh larone, White uh, hater Ali Khan, on here, megomed Moga, Harvey uh.
There’S some names on here guys that you might not know um.
We have a fighter that we’ve talked to that we’ve uh We’ve we’ve! Well that I’m talking to you about getting on there uh an Ontario boxer, Michaela Michael Miller, is on this card.
Uh he’s taking on the Ron White uh shout out to him man.
Hopefully you come through.
I know he just got back into the gym and got back to his uh to his old ways.
Uh training real hard.
So after his last fight uh at Rebel entertainment center that we were at and saw him uh, he looked really really good uh and he’s definitely definitely got a new spark uh in his training man and uh.
He he says: he’s gon na he’s gon na come through with a victory on this one and he’s not he’s he’s not on the a side right here he’s on the B side of this card.
So he’s been put up there to to, you know, maybe lose, but I don’t think that’s gon na happen.
I think our man Miller is going to come through the victory on this one because I know he’s hungry.
I know he’s hungry man, oh man, I was.
I was just about to to to fall into Tim’s lap and say: okay, let’s talk about this Connor Ben Fiasco and then then he loses his uh connection.
I know um but I’ll I’ll.
You know if you are finished with the Roundup of the uh, we’re we’re finished.
We’Re finished with we’ve got a few minutes left in the show, and I wouldn’t mind touching on it.
I I first of all uh.
My heart goes out to the guys on the undercard who got uh displaced because of the uh.
Shall we say suspension, uh some say it might be postponed.
Some site might be canceled, but at the end of the day, khanaban is an idiot uh you.
You cannot tell me that you know he got uh tested positive uh for any other reason.
He certainly wasn’t looking to get pregnant nope, you know so.
Does he look in the master steroids.
Take a look at the before and after pictures of the guy’s body.
I mean come on Connor at the end of the day.
At the end of the day, the the way I see it is if you’re, if you’re, if you got this stuff in your system – and you don’t know, then there’s a serious problem, there’s a serious problem with your team.
You know if you’re, not if you’re not voluntarily taking this and your team is, you know, slipping this to you without you knowing then you’re an idiot.
You know it’s ridiculous man up, take the damn punishment and get on with it.
Because, honestly, you know it’s.
It’S a disgrace.
Man look at all these people that you know spent money out of their own Pockets to pay for training camps to pay for the you know, travel to pay for sparring partners to pay for all this kind of [ __ ].
Just for what? For one guy to take some drugs so that you know he can he can boost his own confidence, boost his own confidence yeah, it’s too bad um and he’s coming out that he failed a first drug test back in the winter time.
So you know eight odd months ago, so standing the economy, and I I hope I never hear his name again in the fight world uh, I don’t we, we don’t need those kinds of Fighters um.
It does make me wonder, though uh you know whether or not matchroom should do the right thing have all their fighters on their roster tested just to prove to the rest of the world, to all boxing fans that, just because there’s One Bad Apple, it doesn’t ruin The entire basket – you know sugar did Sugar, did mention it on Wednesday.
If you guys remember, you know, usually when there’s one in the hen house right they’re, all in the hen house, take I’m not I’m not saying, and I’m not, accusing that the entire matchroom stable is using [ __ ].
But you know what, where there’s one there’s gon na be two where the smoke where the smoke was fire, and so all I’m saying if I, if I were Eddie Hearn, if I were Eddie Hearn, what would be the harm in asking all of my fighters to Go to go, get tested, prove to the fans that you guys are clean and you’re ready for your next fight.
To be fair, to be fair to those fighters who you’re going to be up against, you know prove it to the world that you guys are clean period and that actually would lead the way uh for all promoters to have all of their rosters uh.
Take those tests, you know, as I pointed out on the new show, you know the the the people doing.
The tests are basically under control of the British Board of boxing anyway, so you know why why why why it came to light two days before the fight is another question very, very peculiar that it would come out in the way it did uh peculiar he? He wasn’t going to take uh that second test um, you know so there’s a whole bunch of like yeah.
The problem is now, though, if you got to think about this too problem is now his name is sullied.
It’S you know they, even if you come back from this like, even if it finds out that you know.
Oh, you know he didn’t take it.
He you know it was some mix up.
However, it’s always going to be in the back of people’s minds.
Now you know, there’s always going to be that that doubt hey, you know, no matter what you, if you can prove if you can prove that it’s wrong, and you can prove that you know there was some some mix up in the way of handling or whatever And you get found innocent at the end of the day, that’s still going to be a little asterisk beside your name stating that you caused this a whole event canceled for those of us who are old enough to remember.
There was a sprinter by the name of Ben Johnson who uh got caught uh after being tested after winning the gold at the Olympics yeah and was immediately stripped of his gold medal.
Yeah there was no hey.
This test might be wrong kind of stuff.
No, they they took that and handed it to what Carl Lewis who came in second, you know so the end of the day.
That’S what I’m thinking you know far and wide here.
I think you know in terms of the tentacles of the boxing industry.
You know, we’ve often been accused of uh all the various nefarious activities that take place behind the scenes, whether it be uh gloves, whether it be pepper, whether it be well Tim could know more about this than I ever would, but at the end of the day, You’Ve got all these kinds of accusations being leveled at the boxing industry and yet just when we think we’re coming out of the woods Along Comes Connor Ben, like what the heck was.
He thinking, what were his trainers? Thinking now.
More importantly, I’m sorry that my phone was going.
It won’t happen again.
Sorry for the audience.
I apologize keep keep your phone steady.
We are yes, yes, you are talking about Connor Ben everybody.
Is we’re just talking about him with somebody talking about about an hour ago.
What what the guidance YouTube channel um and he said dumb cases strong both of them are strong, but kind of is, is a little a little bit stronger than um um yeah, the new bank.
Right I mean obviously I was I was taking Ben yeah.
I thought Ben was going to come through and bet you know what I’m very impressed with Ben.
In the last couple of fights I’ve seen with him man, I love his aggressive style.
I love the way he comes in.
I love the way he just you know.
No holds bar leaves it up this.
This is this upset me like this has made me mad like come on man.
You, you you’re, taking a drug that you know is banned like how did you think like? How did you think that you weren’t gon na get caught like, even though like did you did you think you were gon na get caught because it’s a woman’s drug for egg reproduction? Well, actually, Mike it’s actually a combination of drugs, the drug he was caught using is a masking agent for the steroids he was using so because he he was also what was it.
God got a clomiphene.
That’S that that’s the masking agent.
Yes, yeah! That’S the masking engine um.
It’S also used to treat infertility in women.
Yes, do not ovulate right right, so it’s so he’s either trying to get pregnant yeah or he was.
He was trying to mask his steroid use.
So pretty clear to me yeah.
He doesn’t look like the type of guy mind you have you seen the there’s a meme out there, a really funny one uh, oh, but we shouldn’t make fun of these people because they work so hard they’re, so dedicated passionate.
Now guys, like him, Sully the sport.
They make us look bad, uh and, and everyone wants to know or are all boxers like that.
Did they all take drugs? Well, you know, I think it happens.
Probably in every sport, I’m not kind of hazardous, there’s gon na be a bad apple, but if I were Eddie Hearn I’d make all of my boxers take the test twice three times whatever.
What what is it pee into the jar kind of test like at the end of the day, it’s not like they’re taking blood or anything it’s uh.
These guys are boxers come on.
What are you scared to take a test? And if you are, why are you scared to take a test? Because, anyway, I’m just saying Eddie Hearn should make a move here, prove himself to be the leader that he thinks he is and have all of his tests or have all of his boxers tested.
That’S what I think uh honestly honestly, Sean Porter says he wants Connor Ben to come clean and admit he was using performance enhancing drugs because it just makes him look worse if he hides hides it anymore, right right, like and all I’m saying.
Is it just cast that long Shadow on all boxers, yeah man, it’s like if I, if okay just think about it for the past year, we’ve been talking about boxing turning the corner, whether it’s because of Jake Paul, whether it’s because of the women in the game? At the end of the day, we’ve been talking about the Improvement in the game, the Improvement of the game.
On behalf of the fans, a number of fans are increasing.
The Creator Clash series that little loves YouTubers fight each other, raise over a million dollars for all those uh special Charities.
That was great boxing was really on the increase in terms of popularity and then comes Connor band to burst the bubbles.
Yes, you know like it’s things like that, that you know like with boxing.
You know it’s it’s on a steady, slow climb, and then you get something like this and it’s just like a you know it just it just ruins it it it’s.
It makes It’s upsetting.
It’S upsetting that that he allowed himself.
You know what, if you’re, cheating man you suck at it.
You know if you’re gon na cheat don’t get caught.
Man come on.
You know what I mean if you’re gon na cheat and you have to cheat because it betters the way that you feel about yourself because you’re going into this fight and you’re, not confident in your ability to beat Chris Eubank right.
So this is why you’re taking these drugs, you know, don’t get caught doing it so and then, when you get caught doing it, you admit that you weren’t, taking the crap at all, like you, failed to test admit the crap already man, because it’s just making you Look bad, it’s making! You look bad and, on top of that, think about all the people that were on that card that spent money out of their own Pockets to get ready for that card.
Man at the end of the day.
What I think should happen when he does get proven guilty, he should be suspended and he should have to pay back everybody all that money that they lost out of their own pockets them that’s what should happen.
You want to stop fighters from doing this cool um.
You got a four kill: four million dollars in prize money and uh.
You got ta Fork out all the money that uh these people paid for the last three months in their training camp.
To come to this car.
I’M surprised we’ve not heard of any lawsuits.
If I were one of those undercard boxers I’d be suing the [ __ ] out of that managers yeah, I wonder if it’s man aging them, that’s exactly what we were saying: Tim, um and uh.
You know, Matt Matthew needs to prove a point.
I mean that Matthew needs to issue an edict and say hey all my boxers.
I want you all to take a test, get get clean and uh, no prove yourself clean and uh.
Let’S get on with the business of boxing, which is a great sport.
Matty Harris was on that card too.
Wasn’T he uh? He was scheduled to fight heavyweight.
No that’s right! Yeah! He was on that card.
Man uh, you know, like I’ve been talking to him, he’s very upset about certain situations.
Uh, the the Irish lad.
Coil, I think, was on that fight too yeah.
There was the you know, there’s some great Fighters that we’ve talked to that are friends of them.
You know that our channel here that we support and uh you know what it’s It’s upsetting.
It’S really upsetting that uh.
You know they had to go through that.
You know work so hard yeah.
You know because these guys, we know these guys that we talked to on a regular basis.
We know the dedication and the time and the effort and the money that it costs these guys to get to where they’re at and be on these cards.
And then you got some goof like Conor Ben who’s, denying that he took something like honestly.
How? How can you test positive for something if you didn’t take it, you know what I mean like I’m sorry, the test says positive.
You can’t get a positive test unless the thing is in your system, so either you voluntarily took it or somebody in your sleep might be going right.
You know what I mean like or rubbing it in topically, who knows either either you got ta either you got ta, blame your training staff or blame your your team because they’re doping, you up without you knowing and you not knowing are a [, __, ] or You’Re doing it he he he knew.
You know what was even funnier, leading up to that with the social media presence of Chris Eubank Jr, because he was stuffing himself with all sorts of weird food and I’m going what the heck is that about.
You know, and he was saying he was training 60 and I’m going what the heck so I mean, I think he must have known or his team must have known.
What I am surprised is that uh they didn’t reach out to Biba uh the British Irish boxing Authority and get get them to sanction the event.
If, if in fact, Connor band was truly clean, as he says he was, but obviously he wasn’t – I mean even mattum knew he wasn’t they couldn’t they couldn’t get clearance from either Biba or any other sanctioning body I mean, could they moved it offshore, given all that Money at stake: you know how much would it of cost to fly everyone over to Malta? You know yeah, I don’t know, but you’ll pick pick a neutral country if, if he truly was clean or move the entire undercard um to Saudi Arabia, I think societies wouldn’t have picked up that fight sure they would have.
Oh, of course they would have.
But somebody makes it that was a huge money that was started in the 90s right, and then we got the next generation of those guys starting a new rivalry.
Man that that could have lasted years could have been a three p.
You know what I’m saying it could have been, it could have been, it could have been.
You know, the interesting rivalry is now between the uh UAE and Saudi Arabia.
These guys are pumping millions in two separate countries.
Uh, both of them are pumping a ton of money into boxing and a ton of money to get big names into boxing over there.
So you know you’re telling me that uh, the Sheikh couldn’t have come along with a couple million bucks and said alien boxes.
All your teams take my private jets.
Take 10 of my private jets, come over here to Jetta and uh and fight honestly they’re paying half a million dollars to sit front row.
Why not right? You know, there’s so many like there’s so many weird points.
Uh left up in the air in the wake of Connor Ben’s decision to take drugs.
Yeah, you know and and that’s the bottom line I mean I mean yeah we could they could.
They have found another sanctioning body, probably yeah, um uh.
Could they have all flown on mass to some uh Kingdom in the Middle East? Probably for sure you know, could they have continued even to fight uh in England without the main event, probably probably yeah, then you got an unsanctioned, an unsanctioned exhibition tournament.
No, no! No! The only the only the only thing that wouldn’t have been sanctioned would have been the main event yeah, which would have it yeah.
That would have been hilarious, see these two battle each other out for no position, no good like nothing.
So so there was lots of my point is: there’s lots of uh.
You know what ifs that surround it and uh.
You know someone at the end of the day pulled the plug and I’m gon na I’m gon na Hazard, a guess here and say this: here’s! What I’ll Hazard to guess, seeing we’ve run out of time, yeah I’ll say they made an offer to biva? Okay, that’s the British Irish boxing Authority.
Okay, um! We know some guys who who work with those people they’re good people put on some good independent fights, but I’ll bet, Bieber got a little greedy and said yeah sure we’ll be happy to sanction the event in in the wake of uh the bbboc saying.
No, we won’t do it.
We’Re gon na suspend it blah blah blah Diva came along yeah, okay, give us 17 million dollars and we’ll be happy.
Sorry, 17 million pounds and we’ll be happy to sanction and someone over matter went no [, __ ] way, yeah right, they’re like no.
No, no! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No cancel! They cancel that before anybody could do anything.
Why surprises no lawsuits? I’M really surprised.
I think I think what they’re waiting for is for the the uh the investigation be over, and then I think we’re going to see some lawsuits come up from this one for sure there are too many teams that lost too much money um, you know, and and
