  1. I dunno. Whenever I see Kelvin I always think of Cypress Hill's track Takin Hits From The Bong. Anyway great interview. Kelvin to me is in a lose lose situation with Till. If he wins people will say Kelvin beat a guy who got beat by a former 155er. If Kelvin loses he got beat by a guy who got beat by a former 155er. I hope Kelvin gets big $$$ for this fight.

  2. Till needs to fire he’s couches . They keep giving the most difficult fights kelvin ain’t the kind of fighter you take after 2 bad knockouts. He’s the fighter you avoid fighting because he’s to good. Couches should of gave him a tune up fight. I hate to see young up and coming talent careers get ended short and fighters stock go to shit because of couches. As couch you got give your fighter s tune up get confidence back till style is all based on confidence

    • Well Tyron didn't KO him, he dropped and subbed Till but yeah, that doesn't make this much better. Kelvin's possibly better than Tyron and Gastelum might have the best boxing in the sport. I predict a fast first round KTFO loss and then retirement for Till. Darren's team had every right to turn down this fight and should have.
