He turned it off that it’s four o’clock.
Yes, we are going around the world.
Graham, you are right, we are, and we are stopping today at well – we’re not stopping today at the ukraine because he doesn’t.
He doesn’t live there anymore, but he’s born there.
Um apparently, he’s uh he’s hanging out in germany so who we’re talking about victor vikurst, also known as victor foster, what a name right.
We did watch him on the card uh.
Just a couple of weeks ago there, with the tyson fury dionte wilder, he was on the opening fight there.
He fought our man, mike marshall, who came on had an interview um this kid victor man.
He is definitely starting to climb the ranks and he is starting to get noticed and uh he’s only a few fights away from earning those championship.
Uh championship bouts man to be honest, uh he’s 8-0 right now, with six knockouts he’s ranked 69th out of a uh 1100 in the world, wow yeah and uh.
You know he’s coming off that uh third round tko, a win off of mike marshall uh, he’s promoted by earl, crayland uh, i’m not too sure um.

Wow yeah man he’s got he’s got arms like like, like you know, like wings, man he’s got arms like wings.
He could probably fly this guy if he tried really really hard [ Laughter ], but i’ve seen a few of his highlight reels.
He’S he’s pretty impressive.
He’S a big boy.
Yeah he’s uh he’s a big dude he’s a big dude and um, reminiscent of the days of vitaly and vladimir klitschko, gave their nation hope of a 200 pound plus champion to be proud of two more fighters.
Uh are both on that path to the top, and one of them is victor vikers uh, this 29 year old, former amateur star, spent time learning from klitschko himself after sparring sessions with vladimir, so comparisons between the six foot, five inch fighters and vladimir are already evident.
Uh vikus was delighted to hear uh them when speaking to channel 24 in the ukraine when they trained together.
So he’s he’s happy that you know he’s he’s, got this amazing guy amazing boxer, rubbing off on him and uh.
You know the media is starting to notice that he’s he’s acting a lot like him and he’s and he’s and he’s fighting a lot like him and uh.
