Plus, Eddie always has a few opinions on everything else that's going on in the world of boxing. We'll get to that a little bit later. But it was a busy weekend in boxing. Canelo Alvarez successfully defended his 168 -pound titles. What's the future for him? What's the future for Jermell Charlo, who quite frankly didn't show up in this fight? I thought it was an embarrassing performance by Jermell Charlo who talked a good game, made us believe or made some people believe he was going to win or at least compete, and then just moved around the ring for 12 rounds to survive a decision. We'll talk about that and much more with Keith Idec, senior writer with BoxingScene .com. He was out in Las Vegas. Keith, let's just start there. Compare your expectations for Canelo Charlo with how the fight played out. Chris, what did you think of the way that fight played out in the ring? Chris, I'm not in any way surprised that Canelo Alvarez won. Of course, Charlo was moving up two weight classes. Canelo, although he hadn't looked all that great in his previous three fights, said repeatedly that he would look better because his surgically repaired left wrist was now 100 percent. He could train with it, et cetera. So I felt like Canelo would win the fight. But I did think honestly it was going to be a competitive fight. And the thing that really surprised me more than anything, Chris, which I think you just alluded to, is Jermell Charlo simply did not come to win this fight. He seemed to come to go 12 rounds with Canelo to avoid getting knocked out. And the reason that surprised me more than anything, Chris, is because that's not who Jermell Charlo is. That's not who he has been throughout his career. He has fought and promoted his fights and done interviews with a chip on his shoulder that never goes away. And it has served him very well because he's always been defiant and disproving sometimes imaginary enemies. But, you know, he has always used that to motivate him. And in this case, he really didn't. I thought that he would be able to flip that switch on fight night, although throughout the promotion he sort of behaved the way that he behaved once the bell rang. Like he didn't really believe that he could win the fight and that, you know, this might have been too much for him in the sense that he was moving up two weight classes and fighting a big puncher and a dangerous guy. And that's the way he approached the entire fight. You know, Derek James was on him between rounds. Hey, you're losing this fight. You need to do more. You need to pick it up. And he just never really responded to that. And again, I can't really emphasize enough, Chris, how surprised I am that he didn't try to win. Because, you know, this is a very prideful guy. This is a guy, again, who has repeatedly proved people wrong or tried to prove people wrong and used that as a way to drive him to great heights. Because, Chris, he's the undisputed 154 pound champion, the first one of the four belt era. He has avenged the two blemishes or the two previous blemishes on his record. He's avenged both of those. He knocked out Tony Harrison in their rematch. And although in his first fight against Tony Harrison, I didn't really think that he lost. It was a very close competitive fight. Didn't necessarily think that he lost. But he came back and avenged it with an 11th round knockout. You could certainly argue that he'd lost his first fight to Brian Costanio. But then came back and knocked Costanio out as well in his rematch. So he had taken care of the two blemishes on his record. This is just something that's just going to, you know, it's a blemish on his record that is never going to go away. And it might, unfortunately, be for him, the fight that people remember him for most. Because he just did not come to make this a competitive fight. And there's really no excuse for that. Unless he was hurt and he's not using that as an excuse. Unless his left hand really wasn't 100%. Because it was his first fight since he broke two bones in his left hand last December. Unless that was a factor and he's just not using that as an excuse, which would be commendable to hide that if that is the case. Just didn't look like he came to win the fight. And there's really no two ways about that. I don't really see how you could have seen that any other way. I spoke to Tim Zu yesterday. Did an interview with him for his upcoming fight with Brian Mendoza. And he echoed, we basically agreed on everything that Tim Zu said. And he felt, he was less harsh on Charlo than I thought he was going to be, honestly, because they have this rivalry. But he said the same thing. He was just surprised that we didn't get the A -level Charlo that we've gotten in most of his fights. And the kind of, you know, tenacious, ferocious guy that we usually see. Yeah, Charlo wants credit for going the distance. He doesn't get it in my book. He wants credit for not getting knocked out. He doesn't get it in my book. If you take on a challenge like this, I don't care if you move up one -way class, two -way classes, three -way classes. You have an obligation to try to win. Like, people are paying money to see you try to win. People are buying, spending 85 bucks on pay -per -view to see you try to win. He didn't do that. And I agree with you. When his career's over, you know, if it's corrected tomorrow, this would be the fight he's remembered for. For going up two -way classes and, quote, challenging Canelo Alvarez, but not really challenging him. I'm not surprised that Canelo dominated. I'll say that, Keith, because I've been saying that since that fight was made. I never believed Jermell Charlo could compete with Canelo because, and I say this about every Canelo opponent. To be competitive or to beat Canelo Alvarez, you have to throw with him. You have to be willing to let the right hand go. And since like 2018, when Canelo became this sort of middleweight and above destroyer, only two fighters have done that. Gennady has Golovkin done it, and Dmitry Bivol has done it. Both those guys have been willing to throw punches with Canelo. They have not been fearful of the artillery that was coming back. But every opponent other than that, that I've seen Canelo go up against, whether it's Callum Smith. Billy Joe Saunders had a different game plan, but eventually Billy Joe kind of succumbed to it. And now Jermell Charlo, they just, you know, they were trying to, Caleb Plant, I put on that list as well. They were just trying to jab and, you know, move and try to outbox him from the outside. You can't do that. You can't beat Canelo Alvarez unless you're willing to throw something big back against him. And, you know, Jermell Charlo was kind of an oversized example of that. You know, just the way he fought was just, I thought, just awful. Just a really weak performance from Jermell. But a kind of a continuation of guys that, you know, show up believing they have a game plan to face and beat Canelo Alvarez. But they just don't. And that kind of brings me to my next question, Keith, of who does at this point? You know, I think we'd all agree David Benavidez, at least on paper, is the most competitive option for Canelo Alvarez. I don't know if he's a realistic option for May of 2024. Terrence Crawford's out there saying he wants a piece of Canelo. I love Terrence Crawford. I think it's a marketable fight. But you're not going to convince me Terrence Crawford's going to stand in the pocket and trade with Canelo Alvarez. I just don't believe it. Jermell Charlo, don't get me started. There's no market for a Jermell Charlo -Canelo Alvarez fight. Less so after watching Jermell, the smaller brother and the more active brother, lose to Canelo. What is realistic right now for Canelo Alvarez as we look to the second fight of this PBC deal? Chris, the last time we spoke about this on the podcast, I remember telling you that the people who wanted to see him fight Terrence Crawford next, better hope that the Jermell Charlo fight is at least competitive, because then how do you sell a fight against an even smaller opponent in his next fight? And here we are. I'm not saying Terrence Crawford won't go in there to win. He certainly, based on everything that I know about Terrence Crawford, yet I also thought similar things about Jermell Charlo. I would think Terrence Crawford would go in there with a real attempt to win the fight. He's got a lot of pride. He's a very talented guy. He's one of the best pound -for -pound fighters in the world, coming off an incredibly dominant, career -defining win. But like you said earlier, Chris, when you get in there and you fight Canelo and he starts touching you in the beginning of the fight, people tend to realize, well, this is going to be harder than I thought. Canelo said that throughout Fight Week last week. He said watch when the fight starts and then you'll see Jermell Charlo realize that he's in there with a guy that he hasn't, the type of guy that he hasn't been in the ring with before, and that obviously played out. The same thing could be true of Crawford. Now, it is a marketable fight, Chris, and I think the public reaction to it, to me, has been somewhat surprising because it's been relatively positive. People want to see this fight. I can't stress enough. This guy would have to move up 21 pounds to fight Canelo because Canelo has repeatedly said, I am not doing this in a catchweight. It's not going to be at 164, 162, something where you might then think that Terrence Crawford has more of a chance to win. I really don't see as great as Terrence Crawford is, and as much as I commend him for wanting this challenge, I don't see this as a fight that he can win.
Fresh update on "alvarez" discussed on SI Boxing with Chris Mannix
"This is boxing with Chris Mannix. Somebody punch him in the face. Anthony Joshua is a composed and ferocious finisher. Watch this. Andy Ruiz is the heavyweight champion. Hosted by SI's Chris Mannix. That was my moment. Now with interviews, analysis and everything going on in the world of boxing. When you have talent, you are given another chance. Here's Chris Mannix. Ah, that is the sound of my ship coming in. I have successfully made it back from Andrade Island. A long and tortured journey after watching Demetrius Andrade just crash and burn on Saturday in Las Vegas. Knocked out in the sixth round of his fight against David Benavidez. I was overflowing with confidence going into that fight. I was a Demetrius Andrade truther. Undefeated, 19 knockouts avoided for his entire career. I thought he'd be able to outbox David Benavidez first couple of rounds. I felt good about my prediction. And the third round comes and even though I thought Andrade won that third round, he took a shot late in that third round that seemed to change the complexion of the fight. Goes down in the fourth. Never really recovers. You could see his footwork was gone. His head was out of it. And the freight train that is David Benavidez just rolled right over him. So kudos to David Benavidez. He is the real deal. We'll get to Fighter of the Year in the weeks and days to come, but he's put a pretty good campaign together. Beats Caleb Plant by one side of destruction and then absolutely mows down Demetrius Andrade. So we'll get into what this means for both those guys. But I want everybody out there to know that I have returned successfully from Andrade Island. A little poorer, that's for sure. And certainly a little worse for wear because of what happened this past Saturday night. Got a great show though for you, Cory Erdmann, writer, BoxingScene.com, broadcaster at Zone and other place. He's going to join me talk about the Andrade Benavidez fight. Also Taylor, Katie Taylor, Chantelle Cameron. Great show over the UK or Ireland, I should say. Not the UK, Auckland this past weekend. Gotta correct myself on that one. Cory and I will talk about that a little bit later. Ryan Garcia. I sat down with Ryan in Dallas, Texas very recently. Ryan and I talked about his decision to move to Texas and to kind of restart his career down there. So we get into all that. He's working with Derek James and how he looks at this as kind of a new beginning on what is still a very young career. But first, as promised, Cory Erdmann is here. He will be in Houston, Texas this weekend. Not for the Garcia fight, but he'll be working the show on Friday. Cory always finds his way into these very interesting shows. Cory, let's just remind me. That is the Red Owl Boxing show, which is taking place on Friday, the day before the Ryan Garcia fight, correct? You are correct. Yeah, so it's a new kind of prospect-ish series that's being launched on to Zone. Red Owl Boxing has agreed to about nine shows so far with the Zone. We've done a couple of Red Owl cards from Canada featuring some Canadian prospects. But this one is really leveled up in terms of the talent that's on. And so the main event will have Omar Salcido and Luis Correa, Jaleel Hackett, the Mayweather prospect will be on that card as well, and a bunch of other interesting names. And, you know, in a post-showbox world and in a world now where there's more boxing broadcasts than ever, we need series like this to keep fighters of this caliber, both prospects and kind of fringe contenders, active. And I'm liking the way that this one's shaping up. So I'm excited to do it. Nobody loves a good prospect series or fringe contender series like Corey Ehrman. I consider myself something of a boxing nerd. When we have these zone production meetings, I tend to nerd out a little bit. But I pale in comparison to the nerd knowledge of Corey Ehrman. When he walks in there and is able to quickly identify, like use Becky prospects and, you know, the Canadian talent pipeline, I bow to your knowledge of the inner workings of low-level boxing. I will give you that. I mean, listen, I mean, you understand the level of commitment to fighters. I mean, you were a platinum member of the Android club, you know, which Android Island sounds a lot like being at the White Lotus right now. Maybe worse. So let's talk about what we saw this past weekend with Android and Benavidez. Undefeated middleweight champion second fight at super middleweight at the very least Corey. I thought this was going to be competitive because Android was always a big middleweight and I thought he still had the skills even at 34 years old to give David Benavidez a lot of problems. And look the first couple of rounds he did like his footwork was sharp. He moved really well. I stayed low didn't allow Benavidez to kind of close the gap on him. But like I said end of that third round, he took a shot and then the fourth round you just start to get it mowed down. Did this go the way you expected it to go? What did you think of the way the fight played out? I couldn't have predicted that it would go like this. I mean this kind of destruction was certainly surprising to me. I wasn't picking Android coming into this fight, but like you I thought that Android would be mobile enough to cause problems at least into the later rounds and you know, maybe then get stopped but I didn't see it going quite this way and I wrote about Benavidez on unboxing scene for my Monday column. And for me, I think this was the full the me kind of seeing the full picture of David Benavidez. The full Benavidez? Did he show you the full Benavidez? Yeah, exactly. He revealed himself to me on Saturday night and I liked what I saw Chris Mannix. This was a fighter who clearly is more than just an imposing physical presence because there were adjustments that he had to make to Andrade. This wasn't just someone that was mowing down someone who was moving up in way. That was certainly a factor. You know, Andrade looked like, you know, he was on the hypertrophy program coming into this fight and certainly bulked up maybe more than he was comfortable with but the boxing skills were still there. The hand speed was still there. The strategy certainly seemed to have a pretty good one but Benavidez wasn't just physically imposing. It wasn't just the hand speed. It wasn't just the power. It was those adjustments that he was able to make and he made them quickly and he turned it into a route as you said, basically from the end of the third round on. So this was an impressive performance for me and really, you know, put into full picture just how scary of a proposition David Benavidez was. You know, as I was watching it and then writing about it afterwards, I was coming back to there was a moment during, in a way, Maloney when Andrade Ward and Tim Bradley were on commentary and they kind of broke from the convention of trying to be a commentator, trying to engage in conversation and they slipped into that role of just being fighters who were watching someone and being mesmerized from them. And Andrade Ward just kept repeating the line. He's a lot to deal with. It's a lot to deal with. And as I was watching that Benavidez performance, that's what was playing in my mind. That David Benavidez is a lot to deal with for anyone at 168 and wherever he winds up on the scale. Look, Benavidez is a notorious slow starter and we saw some of that in this fight. First round, Andrade out punched Benavidez 8-7. Second round, Andrade 12-8. Then you get to the third round and like I said, even though I thought Andrade won that round, you got to like the final minute and Benavidez landed something big. I don't know if it was a body shot or a head shot, but he landed something that put Andrade on his back foot and had him moving over those final 35-40 seconds. Then you get to the fourth round and it's Benavidez 18, Andrade 12. Fifth round, David Benavidez landed 40 punches on Demetrius Andrade. 38 of those punches were power shots, including the one that knocked him down. Andrade only landed 10 punches in that round. Then the sixth comes around, same thing. 38 punches landed to 14. 36 of those punches, according to CopyBox, were power shots. So he really is like, you know, he's a young man, but he's kind of like an old car. Like he just kind of gets going slowly and then just is almost impossible to stop when he starts getting some momentum. And you know, I don't know who can compete with that. Now that brings the natural, you know, segue up to Canelo Alvarez. And I guess we start here. If Benavidez fought Canelo in May, and we can get into later, will he fight Canelo in May? But if Benavidez fought Canelo in May, who would you make the favorite right now? I know oftentimes we become kind of prisoners of the moment where we just saw something awesome and we forget how awesome something else is. And Canelo, even though he's not the guy we saw back in 2018 going toe-to-toe with Gennady Golovkin, beating up later on Callum Smith and Billy Joe Saunders and all those guys. He made his way to the top of 168. He's still a dangerous guy. He still has some of the best hand speed in boxing. He still has some of the best power in the Super Middleweight division. But if Benavidez and Canelo fought this May, who would you make the favorite in that fight? I still make Canelo the favorite and I was interested in this and so I looked to see if anyone was actually offering odds on this yet. And I did find one sports book that was and Canelo was a little under a two-to-one favorite, which I think is fair. And I think that that is, that's a credit to David Benavidez and I would have thought and probably campaigned for that line to be a little bit wider before I saw what I saw out of Benavidez against Andrade. I will sort of flip this another way though. And I will say that although I think Canelo is the rightful favorite, both because Canelo's been basically the premier fighter in boxing for the last decade and until kind of fully proven otherwise deserves that, but also from an odds maker perspective, I understand the economics of betting and why they would make it that way. However, when I'm coming into this fight now, my mind has kind of shifted into the question of whether Canelo can beat Benavidez and not the other way around. So I'm kind of, I'm not meaning to dodge the question here, but I'm kind of, in my mind, I now actually do question whether Canelo is big enough, fresh enough to deal with what I've seen out of Benavidez. And that's the main question in my mind and not, hey, like does Benavidez have what it takes to beat Canelo? I want to see how does Canelo deal with this guy because this is a proposition he hasn't seen yet. And Benavidez, listen, he doesn't do the things that Bivol did to beat Canelo, but I'm not entirely certain that he can't do some of the things that Bivol did to beat Canelo, plus some other stuff that is really dangerous to Canelo. So this is, this has become even more fascinating to me. Well, I think the two to one odds in favor of Canelo are about right. And you say that Canelo has not seen the kind of things that Benavidez has done. I would argue back that Benavidez hasn't seen anything close to what Canelo does. Of course. The one common thread, like the common thread, at least of 2023 for Benavidez opponents have been, neither of them have any power, right? Like, you know, Caleb Plant do respect some of the knockouts. He's had not a power puncher, Demetrius Andrade, 19 knockouts, whatever, not a power puncher, like not pillow fisted by any stretch. But these aren't knockout punchers. Canelo Alvarez is a knockout puncher. Canelo Alvarez can hurt you with one shot, can knock you down and knock you out with one shot. Now, he is not the five, six punch combination guy he once was. We saw that in the Jermell Charlo fight. The Canelo from 2018 would have walked right through Jermell Charlo, would have landed one big shot and followed up with like seven more. That guy doesn't really exist anymore. At least we haven't seen him in a couple of years. But, you know, Benavidez comes in just full speed. Like he is, when he comes at you, there's no slowing down. Like he is coming at you and throwing a whole bunch of punches. That's a dangerous thing to do with a puncher like Canelo Alvarez. So, I would argue in favor of Canelo that you're not going to do some of the things that have made you successful against a fighter like Canelo. You're not going to throw as many punches as you do per round against Canelo. We see that time and again. Like, you know, the output of opponents against Canelo Alvarez is so much different than what it is against other opponents because you're worried about what's coming back. Like, you know that if you're going to stand in the pocket and trade, something big is probably coming back at you. The only guys willing to do that has been Demetri Beeville. One thing Beeville has shown throughout most of his career is that he has a light heavyweight chin. Like he has legit chin. He has been hit by Joe Smith. He has been hit by Canelo Alvarez. He can stand up to that type of power. Now, I think Benavidez has a good chin. Does he have a granite chin? Can he take a big counter shot? That remains to be seen. That's why I think that fight is so interesting. Now, the question becomes, will Canelo take it? And, you know, in kind of poking around people I know around Team Canelo, I don't get the sense that this is a front burner, you know, opponent for them. Like, I still, I think there still is interest in Terrence Crawford to fight Canelo in May because that is probably the most marketable fight that can be made for Canelo Alvarez right now. There might be somebody else. I mean, Edgar Berlanga is still out there with an undefeated record. Hai-Mimonguia is still out there with undefeated record. He could go a multitude of different places for his next fight. And that's kind of the sense I get. Now, could things change in the weeks ahead? Yeah, sure. Like, you know, Canelo, he might decide to wake up mid-December. You know what? Maybe I will fight this guy. Maybe it is time to kind of prove once again to people that I am still at the top of my game. But I don't get the sense, Corey, that this fight's imminent by any stretch. I think there are other options Canelo is looking at and David Benavidez is not high on that list. Yeah, that does seem to be the case. And you know, you're, you know, you've been sniffing around a lot more than I have on this front to find out, you know, what Canelo's thinking right now. But the way that Canelo has talked about Benavidez or really has kind of avoided that scenario and those questions has always suggested to me that it's not something that he's running towards. That's not to say that I think that Canelo is afraid of David Benavidez or anything like that. But no, because Corey, Canelo, Canelo is in, and I've said this on this podcast before, Canelo is in his Mayweather years, right? Like he is now in his money-making, maximize exposure, cash, all those things years, you know, three years ago. And look, I said this David Benavidez, like David doesn't think Canelo's ducking him either. David knows full well that a few years ago, if David still had 168 pound belt, Canelo would have fought him. Like he was determined to become the super middleweight champion of the world, the undisputed king at 168. Now, it's like, well, what's the smartest fight out there for me to take? He's not going to duck David Benavidez forever. But if, you know, he's not going to feel like he's obligated to find him. And look, I understand that. I don't love it because the best fight out there in May is Canelo against Benavidez. But if I'm Canelo and I'm in my early to mid 30s, and I've accomplished pretty much everything. I'm a first ballot Hall of Famer. I'm a three division world champion, four division world champion. Sorry, I moved to 175 when he beat Sergey Kovalev. He's proven everything that he wants to prove. So if he wants to go out there and fight Terence Crawford in a fight that would do more pay-per-view buys than a Canelo Benavidez fight. I'm sorry, it's true. Benavidez, he's well known to people like you and me and others in boxing. Terence Crawford is known by more and Terence Crawford coming off that win over Arrow Spence is at his peak marketability. So if he wants to go out there and fight Terence Crawford, I can't really begrudge him for that. Yeah, and even though there is that weight disparity, I can see, you know, Canelo clinging on to that the pursuit of pound for pound greatness again, right? You know, Canelo for so long was universally regarded as number one in the world. And now there are a lot of people who think that that man is Terence Crawford either him or in a way and again, even though there would be, you know, they would be playing some games with the weight a little bit in his mind beating Crawford may kind of signifies superiority over the entire sport again, and that is far more tantalizing to him than just beating, you know, the new young upstart to pick up another 168 pound title and you know, you're right. Canelo has, you know, it's tough because we want to kind of treat every active fighter the same and make the same demands of them. But Canelo, you just pointed out all of his accolades, like he is in the equivalent of, you know, what a musician would be in when they're kind of a legacy act. It doesn't matter what album they release at this point. They're going to sell out stadiums and they're going to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. And that is the position that Canelo is in and what did those acts do? They do just what seems most fun to them? What venues seem fun? Do they want a Vegas residency or do they want to play, you know, some monstrous stadium that those are literally the choices that Canelo has right now as an active fighter. And so I think that Crawford seems more appealing to him than Benavidez does right now. I'll tell you, I believe that Canelo will fight David Benavidez within the next 18 months. I believe he will. I don't think he's going to duck Benavidez forever, but I think going to Crawford or somebody like that makes more sense to him for May, September. Who knows? I mean, look, the Saudis could wake up and write a check and have Dimitri Bivol fight against Archer Benerbiev in the spring and all of a sudden Bivol could be walking around as the undisputed champion at 175. That could tempt Canelo to get into the ring again with Bivol before the end of the year. But I do think that we get Benavidez Canelo at some point. I just don't think we're going to get it in May of next year. Maybe I'm wrong. Hopefully I'm wrong, but that's the sense I'm getting right now. As far as Benavidez goes, he said something interesting in the aftermath of this past fight. He said that if Canelo can't happen, he'd be willing to go up and wait to fight Dimitri Bivol himself. And I love that attitude. I absolutely positively love that fight because look, David Benavidez is basically a 175 squeezing his way down to 168 anyway. He's going to be bigger than Dimitri Bivol if he steps in the ring with him at 175. He's got the style. He's got the power. That is a can't miss type of fight. I would love to see David Benavidez fight Dimitri Bivol in the spring if Canelo says, you know what? I'm not going to do this right now because the Benavidez beats Bivol. I mean, all of a sudden that's the fight that Canelo almost has to take because then Benavidez would have a light heavyweight strap. He will have beaten the guy that beat Canelo. That's the one thing I think that David Benavidez can do to make sure Canelo fights him in his next fight. Yeah, then he's basically cornered Canelo provided that Canelo is still looking for achievement as a professional and not just looking to put on events. Yeah, I mean, that would be a fantastic fight and what a position to get Bivol in, especially if Bivol can't get that, better be a fight beforehand. You know, Bivol's been inactive. He's had serious turmoil outside of the ring as well. Like why not go and give that a shot? And again, you know, the boxing public these days is a lot more forgiving of these types of like dare to be great scenarios. We use that term a lot. But Benavidez going up to 175, even if he doesn't beat Bivol, just come back. You know, you won't lose anything by taking that risk. So if that fight is available and he wants it, I love the fight and I am fully in support. I love that fight. And if Bivol really wants a challenge and wants to make some money, that's the fight he takes to, you know, obviously like everybody that if Archer Better Breathe gets through Callum Smith in January, which is a tough fight. Like that's a that's not a gimme for for better be it. But if he gets through that and the Saudis want to write a check by all means, let's see that fight. That's the best fight you can make at light heavyweight. But if that's not available, then a Benavidez Bivol fight in Vegas is awesome. Like that is a phenomenal fight, a pay-per-view fight to make sometime in, you know, April or May in Las Vegas, maybe in Texas, maybe somewhere, maybe New York, who knows, wherever it is. It's it's a tremendous fight on the undercard of the show. You had Jamal Charlo making his return two and a half years out of the ring. The former middleweight champion didn't go so well for him on Friday when he missed weight by three and a half pounds. A catch win, I should point out. He was originally supposed to make 163, blew that, finished up, I think, at 166.6 or something like that. Eventually, the fight went on with Jose Benavidez, who is really 140, 147 pounder, was coming way up in weight for this particular fight. All that being said, but Jamal looked fine. You know, he hadn't been in the ring for a long time. He obviously had some weight issues for this training camp. He said he trained three weeks for this fight. He looked fine. Like his speed looked pretty good. His power looked decent, didn't really have any kind of problem with Benavidez. What was your assessment of Jamal Charlo's performance in the co-main event? Yeah, I think that my assessment is basically what Jamal's assessment was of his own performance, which is that, listen, he got it done and he's proud of himself for getting it done. And, you know, in listening to Charlo speak to the media in the build up to this fight, I think you got a greater sense of just kind of what kind of struggles Jamal was going through. And he didn't specify exactly what he was going through. But I think, you know, having seen Jamal in public over the last several years and, you know, how erratic his behavior was coming, I think we can come to our own conclusions as to what he was dealing with. But he was dealing with a lot and, you know, I'm willing to give someone grace for that. You know, like I don't care that he missed weight. You know, obviously, you know, he had a truncated training camp and he was probably starting from a much higher point on the scale, given what he was dealing with before. But inside the ring, he looked like a supremely talented fighter who hadn't thought for a while. But all of that seemed to still be there. You know, when you look at the underlying statistics of that fight, landing 40% of his shots overall and nearly 50% of his power shots, that tells me that the punch selection is still there, that accuracy is still there, and that Jamal after, you know, one or two more serious training camps and then a step up in opposition, still has it in him most likely to get back to somewhat close to where he was before. So I think that that fight provided exactly what Jamal needed. It got him comfortable with being, you know, out there and fighting again, given what he was dealing with behind the scenes. I think it's just exactly what he needed. He got it and he showed me the right amount that I needed to see to believe that Jamal could still be a thing. Yeah, I've been very critical of Jamal professionally as a middleweight champion. I didn't like that he wasn't seeking out the biggest fights, most notably Demetrius Andre, but he also didn't make fights with guys like Jaime Munguia, didn't make fights with Gennady Golovkin. I took issue with that over the years. Personally, I'm very impressed with Jamal Charles, really how he conducted himself during the build up to this fight and really how open he was about his mental health challenges and the things he had been going through in his life. Look, his brother didn't come to the show, like that was surprising. Jamal, you know, just weeks earlier had come to, you know, Jermell's fight against Canelo Alvarez. Jermell wasn't there for this fight and you saw at the end of that press conference after the fight, Jamal basically made a plea to the media to, you know, say hello to my brother for me, tell him I love him. So I give Jamal a lot of credit for being so open about what he's gone through over the years. Now, the question is, can he get back to the proverbial mountaintop? I think 168 is going to be a challenge for him because even though he won that fight against Jose Benavidez clean, he was backing up a lot. And again, Benavidez is not a middleweight or a super middleweight. He's a welterweight who, you know, is beefing up just for the opportunity to fight someone like Jermell Charlo. What happens when Jermell's in the ring with Caleb Plant, which is a guy that clearly there'll be some clamors for, are some clamors for, for him to fight? What happens if he fights a guy like David Benavidez? I mean, if Jermell had fought Benavidez on this night, it would not have gone any better for him than it did for Demetri Sandro. In fact, it probably would have gone worse because, you know, Andrade at least was able to stick and move for a couple of rounds. I don't think Jermell has that really in him. I think the key for Jermell is going to be staying active. And that may mean taking another low-level fight. Like, let's say he can fight again in February. And granted, at this point, as we record this, I have absolutely no idea where these PBC fights are going to wind up. But if he can fight again in February, he should do it. Like, even if it's for relatively low money, he should do it because he's got to try to get some of that ring rust off the momentum back, get his confidence back to a sky-high level. I think he's at least two fights away from being able to challenge even someone like Caleb Plant. I would love a Caleb Plant fight. That is a big event because we all know the bad blood between those two guys. Caleb Plant slapped Jermell, you know, just a couple of months ago. I don't think he's there yet. And look, I'd still like to see him in against Andrade down the line. I don't think he's there yet. I think he needs, you know, not a Benavidez type, but he's a legitimate 168 who's not a huge threat to kind of get himself back to that world championship level. Maybe it means fighting on another undercard. Maybe it means taking a reduced purse. But to get back to the kind of paydays he's looking for and the events he's looking to be in, I think he needs to stay active. I think you need to see him kind of going back to his roots, you know, before he was a world champion, before he was, you know, one of the best guys at 54 and then 60. I think he needs to kind of rebuild that way in order for him to get back on top. Yeah, I think so, too. And, you know, I hope that he sees that as well, because you're right. I don't think that, you know, a 10-month layoff where he's hoping for a bigger fight and he thinks that, you know, the improvements, the getting back to where he was before will just happen in camp. I think it's going to happen in live action. And I think for him, too, having continual structure and fights to look forward to, that's probably good for him as a person and as an athlete as well. So I think on both fronts, it's a good idea for Jamal to remain as active as possible. And I think that if he does, I think that we'll see a little bit more aggression coming back. You know, you mentioned that he was backing up against Jose Benavidez. I think that's to be expected for a fighter that is really rusty. I think when you've been out of action for a long time, that's kind of where you find comfort is backing up and seeing what's coming at you and then reacting to that. But as your confidence builds, your fitness increases, you start to take some more chances. You start to get a little bit more aggressive. And so I think that we'll see that return from Jamal provided that he can be active and he can continue to shake that rust off. And, you know, and it's also just good for him in terms of his public standing as well to be busy, you know, get a few more impressive performances back under his belt and suddenly his name value starts to rise again. I think that it's good on every front for him to take the approach that you're suggesting. He's still got a name. He's still got an undefeated record. He still for now has 160-pound title. There is a pathway, a clear pathway for Jamal Chahal to get back into bigger fights. I just think he needs to, he's into it. And I think he needs to find a way to be active. And that means communicating with his handlers, look, I don't need the big purse. I don't need the headlining slot. Like just get me back out there. Keep me on cards to get me back to a level where I can compete with the guys that people ultimately want to see him. Last thought on that card, the Super El Matias fight against Urgachev. Like, you knew that was going to be just a, you know, it had the potential to be the fight of the night and it was close to it. It was certainly the best fight of the undercard, I thought.

I've been wanting to talk with Rebecca Albera's story for a while. She is an award -winning entrepreneur, sexologist, and intimate product developer. Three titles that do not often go together. But I'm glad we waited for this moment when, like many of my very favorite conversations, we find Rebecca and her company Bloomy, a wellness brand focused on clean, intimate care essentials, at an inflection point, asking the very familiar question, will what got us here get us to where we want to go next? Rebecca, finally, thank you so much for being here. Thank you so much for having me. I'm glad it worked. I'm so happy to have this conversation. Rebecca, among the things you say about intimacy is that so much of the root of intimacy is unlearning bad sex ed. What was the bad sex ed that you grew up with? My bad sex ed was actually no sex ed to start with. I definitely saw love, and my parents modeled that so well. But in terms of, like, in my community, in my school, did we have sex education? Not really, because it was abstinence -only education in high school. It's wild that someone goes from growing up in an environment that is abstinence -only to, I mean, by the time you are in college, you're very clear that you want to study sex and sexuality. I sit at the intersection of so many things, being Latina, a woman. I was a single mom at that time. I just felt like I could relate to so many people's intimacy journeys. And I wanted to create the spaces where we could talk about it. I didn't know exactly what it was going to look like. But yes, in college, I tell this story, you know, I was apprehensive about sexuality because my first year in college, I was actually assaulted. And I ended up transferring home. I ended up at Cal, a very liberal, very progressive school where I could take so many wonderful classes that were holistic, and I shared with people that it was very healing for me. I had great therapy. I had great all of that. But the education, it just transformed my life. When did it become clear to you that you are an entrepreneur? To be honest, I feel like I've always known this since I was little. I had that spirit of, oh, that should be a business. And why don't we have a solution? I would just see things differently than like the cousins I grew up with, I think. They would joke and say, why do you always have so many ideas? Why are you always so bossy? But it was just little. I was little and I was like taking initiative to create things. Talk me through the evolution of Blumey, because as I understand it, the original idea was a multi -brand marketplace. How did it morph from that concept to a place for education, advice on intimacy with a line of sexual wellness products? I had been in the industry for 10 years. I was working as a consultant for startups, helping them with their product development. And I was coaching both singles and couples, learning so much about intimacy challenges, intimacy goals, and really helping people in a lot of different ways, where at the end of so many of my sessions, my clients wanted solutions. They wanted the book, the product, the toy, the whatever it was. And so I would manually send this to them. I started creating a list, but it was a little bit like it was a lot of work on my end to always curate. And so what I did is I said, I'm just going to put these products that I recommend that are clean, because it's very important that these products be healthy, especially for these areas of the body, put them all on a page. And that was the beginning of Bloomie, where I had multiple brands. They were my favorite clean brands that I would recommend in the category. And then when I developed our first product with our team, it was called Bloomie Arousal Oil. We still sell it. It's a bestseller. That was just the beginning of a pivot for us. And that's why we fundraised and why we ended up really focusing on Bloomie's products, making solutions for products that I wish I had 10 years ago. The question I'm about to ask you seems particularly relevant given the timing of your and my conversation, but I want to take us back to April 2022. Your line is set to debut at Target and your funding falls short. How does that happen? Funding for women of color entrepreneurs is severely lower than what it should be. There is less than one percent of funding that is going to entrepreneurs of color and Latina founders. So I never use that as an excuse. But when I went out and I fundraised, I did everything by the book. I trained, I did accelerators, I did boot camps. I had a cis white male co -founder. I had everything you're supposed to, and I'm using quotes, to have. And we fell short. We wanted to raise two million. We raised one million. So what did I do? I ended up seeing that there is no standard for my industry. This is new. Intimacy companies were not being venture backed at that time. And I just realized I'm going to have to do things differently. So we crowd raised. We basically opened up part of our round to the community where they could invest one hundred or two hundred dollars minimum. We raised almost a million dollars that way, two different times. And then we also I took out personal loans. We had a few angels give us personal loans. I took out a line of credit. Like I did everything to make sure that we could have sufficient capital to meet the demands of going into retail. And even with that, I'll say when founders ask me, what does it take to go into retail? It's so big of a question. I want to sit down and go through things with people. But you have to estimate how much you're going to need to be on shelf, stay on shelf. That's even harder. Mark it and to not plan to be profitable right away.

Subscribe to my feed on AMP as well. We've got a great show for you today. Corey Erdman, writer over at BoxingScene .com, broadcaster at DAZN, ESPN +, plenty of other outlets. He joins me to talk about the news of the week. We're going to get into the Chris Eubank Jr. and Liam Smith fight. A lot of people surprised by that outcome. I want to talk about the possible resuscitation of Chris Eubank Jr. against Connor Benn. There's obviously a buzz building again for that fight. We have a big fight in the lightweight division, breaking news. I love when news breaks right before we record this podcast. Of course, Stevenson Frank Martin, that fight is a done deal for the fall on ESPN. We'll talk about that as well. A little bit later on, Erickson Lubin, 154 -pound title contender. He joins me. It's been quite the journey, I would say, for Erickson Lubin, who came into the game as this white -hot prospect. He was signed straight out of the amateur ranks. The first fighter signed to Iron Mike Promotions. Had a blistering start to his career. Then he had a couple of setbacks. The first -round knockout to Jermell Charlo. He had the knockout loss to Sebastian Vandora. He is back on September 30th facing Jesus Ramos as the co -main event of Canelo Alvarez, Jermell Charlo. I talked to Erickson about his journey through boxing to this point. Why at 27 years old he feels like he's just entering the best years of his career? Stick around for that conversation a little bit later in the show. At the top, I do want to touch on the news that broke on Sunday. Just touch on it because we're still missing a lot of information on what happened over in the UK with Brian McIntyre, the trainer for Terrence Crawford, the trainer for Chris Eubank. He was arrested on Sunday at the Manchester airport for possession of a firearm and possession of ammunition. As we record this, he is still being held over in the UK. If you know anything about UK gun laws, it's pretty serious stuff. The UK has some of the most strictest gun laws in the world and there are minimum sentences for these gun laws. A lot going on with Brian McIntyre, the trainer for Terrence Crawford. We'll talk more about it as we get more information. Right now, all we know is that he's been arrested, he's being held. For his sake, we hope for the best for BOMAC to deal with that particular situation.

"alvarez" Discussed on SI Boxing with Chris Mannix
"Now for this week's picks brought to you by our friends over at FanDuel. And this week, no surprise, I am focused on the big one. Tyson Fury against dillion white WBC heavyweight championship on the line over in the UK, more than 90,000 fans expected at Wembley. This is going to be a big event. Now, Tyson Fury is the favorite and it's easy to see why. He is coming off back to back spectacular wins over Deontay while they're whereas dilly and white is just a couple of fights removed from getting knocked out by Alexander pavek. So I think your money is safe, betting on fury. I think he has an advantage over white in virtually every possible way. He's the better boxer. He's got, I think, more overall power. He is going to have so many size and physical advantages in this flight. He has proved to be very good at using them. So fury, even at -600, is a pretty safe bet to take on that. And now, method of victory, I think is interesting. This is where I think you can win some money. Most people are expecting this fight to end one way or the other by knockout. Fury, he just knocked out wilder twice. Dillion white, he has got great power in that overhand left. But I think this is going to be more of a boxing match. I don't think you're going to see Tyson Fury be as aggressive as he was against Deontay. I think you're going to see more of the fury that we saw in the first fight against wilder. Or we saw during his first career defining win against Vladimir Klitschko, I think he's going to be more of a boxer in this one. And if that's the case, I can see this fight ending in a 9 three ten to two type of decision. If you read by points, is plus two 40 according to FanDuel and that, I think, is a bet that you should jump on. So take fury to win. He's a favorite. He got bet big to make that worth your while, but the real bet I think is fury by decision. Those are my picks, brought to you by FanDuel. That's it for this week's episode my thanks to Mike coppinger and Canelo Álvarez for joining the show. As always, subscribe, rate, review this podcast on Apple podcast, Spotify, wherever you download podcasts.

"alvarez" Discussed on SI Boxing with Chris Mannix
"That'd be this is a fighting machine. I mean, I think everyone loves that guy. Just comes forward hands down. Throws a hundred punches, whatever it is around with power and he's turning, I think he has a real chance to be a star. He just needs the right fights. But certainly he's very accommodating. He talks great trash and so anyway, I walked over to him, I was a Dallas. I walk over to him and I see the commotion is kind of dying down and I was like, hey, what happened? He said, well, general Charles started shouting at my father. So I got in his face. And I know about this yesterday, and I said, because you know bull obviously both turtle and Benavidez have lobby for shots of Cano and both are excellent matchups in their own right, but canola is usually said, well, why don't they fight each other and earn a shot? So I asked canola, I said, hey, what did you think about this whole fight at ringside and all that? Did you see what happens? So he said, they need to fight. They need to fight in the ring. Why outside the ring? It doesn't make sense. They have some problems fix it in the ring. And then I said, okay, well, you know, I asked him, do you want to see the fight or whatever? He said, I don't care if they fight each other or not. Not my problem. So there you have it from Canada Alvarez. But he is right. I don't understand that. I think this is at least the second frac as they've been in. Just fight each other. Make millions of dollars. It's, in my opinion, one of the three or 5 best fights you can make after that, the winner would, you can't deny the winner, a big opportunity. People would then be calling for Canelo to fight one of those guys. I agree. You know, Charlotte's got a belt at one 60, but he's a big one 60. You could see him moving up sooner rather than later. Benavidez is up there at one 68, Benavidez is going to fight David lemieux next month, Charles is going to fight so let's keep like, you can do it for the end of the year, like everything just lines up right there for that fight to happen, but that's one Mike. We talked about Crawford Spence, like we have both have some optimism for Crawford Spence. I still have zero optimism for Charlie Benavidez. Maybe it's because I've been burned so badly on these, you know, Charlotte Android, personal feelings that I've had over the years, I just don't see it..

I'm hitting it late in my prime. But i've thirty. I was a mess. Okay i mean. I was full alcoholic. I was out of my mind. I was not yet diagnosed I was manic. I thought i was the queen of the cat federation and i had a logo in a motto in a website for this whole thing and I was a manic mess. In here you are and you put it together. And let's talk a little bit about blue-grey so what is what is this all about and when did you formulate it and in in why it was After coming tennessee after having my daughter and it was born out of the idea of struggle. You know. I think that just basically Me going through all these you know after me having my daughter my son taken from me because i was pregnant and i i went to the hospital. I simply went to the hospital and Because i was manic. And i was i was having anxiety attack and i was just not feeling well when i took my son with me and i didn't have anyone else with me. Take care of him and they just decided you know okay. You're not feeling well we're gonna take your son and you know War as happened and they took him for two days and All these things. You know that. I was told that i couldn't do that. I couldn't be a mom because i had bipolar disorder that i couldn't finish my schooling that i couldn't do all these things you know. I think that all these things that i have been through. I proved to the world and proved to everyone mice. All these people that had told me that i couldn't do. You know i'm showing everybody. Yes i you know you can be who you wanna be a life. You know go he determined. You have to put your mind to it in you. Just you know there's this there's this Stigmas and i'm pretty much just showing people that you can live successfully in enhanced bipolar disorder so wide. So and i m pretty much women in that they can live successfully with bipolar disorder and That's pretty much what blueberries lifestyle is. i am a certified life coach and i have a different Methods that i show women Had a work toward with through their anxiety fears. Like for example. I had fear of the unknown. When coming here. I fear the what is a many fears because one of my fears was driving eighteen hours. Al highway in Angered that huge fear of mine. And i drove eighteen hours and i made it because the the the the the want was so great of of the change that i needed so it exactly exactly when i mean when they're in the us lot you had a reason you had a pretty viable reason why you wanted to know. Move forward and out and I i i totally respect that i did. I did the same thing Well not exactly the same thing from jersey to tennessee. But i went from connecticut to arizona in two thousand eleven. Yeah three days in a u haul with by my then dog and Yeah but i like you said the desire to change for me with so much stronger than anything that was going to hold me back in connecticut that it was just like i gotta go man and like i can. I came to arizona. I barely knew the person that i was renting the rv from. We live off the grid with no water no electricity and all that and i spent six months off grid and had an amazing time of my life and found myself at that time and set my goals which i have so far surpass any goals. I had at that time. Because i did not know how much power i had you know and And yeah and i get that. I mean i really get that i me talk about a leap of faith because it's like if you screw that up you know back was so her. I was like if you're right. I would out in the middle of the desert with nothing. Had i screwed that choice up. But because i believe in god i believe in higher spirit type stuff. So it's like you know. I believe that we are led to where we are supposed to go today. Mission to that. I've learned and i think that was the push that i needed at that time was whether you make the right decision or not. A new succeed or fail. They're the no matter what you do in life. Though important part is that that no matter what is there's always a learning let less they to be learned. Yes yes there's always something positive that be taking out of a negative situation. And i know that's hard for people to believe. Wrap their head around and like i've just i buried friend in september two suicide. Which was the worst thing i am. Thank you. And i mean there's people losing people to cove it and that's the most obvious thing for them of eventually you will realize what the lesson was that you needed to learn from that and you will just be grateful that you had experience with the people that are you. Learn the lessons from So yeah that's a positive spin on a negative situation right there so okay so if if any of my listeners the ladies want to learn more about blue gray or how you as a search mindset coach can help them or if you just want to give a a little example of what you could do for like you know anyone of my listeners Go for promoting yourself Well you can find me at blue greys.

"It's i really think it's anchor. But i i do it. I know you're probably not. But that's why i'm just kinda like i just go back into the interview like nothing happened is it's just how it is so so positively passionate on. So what is it that you have done to enact this movement so Like i've done a lot of things like for example. One time i was actually at a pizzeria and there was person and it was like a lot of my interest intuition and for example like this person seem to be having a hard time and i don't know if this person was homeless or not but you know there weren't eating you know i don't know by just seemed i went night purchase. A pizza night ended up sung person to just give a pizza to them. That was something that came out of the kindness of my heart. Then another time. You know. I was In mcdonalds and i actually manic when this happened but a lot of people would say. Hey why why would he do this. But this person was actually person actually homeless than i confirmed it with the person and this person Needed a ride. And i ended up buying person some toilet trees because the parts were so. I gave him the right to the bus ago. So you know there's a little things like that you know when you see someone in need and recording them trying to go viral. Give eight that help or some news. Yeah at the very least just showed some kindness. Don't don't don't do. That stuff really dislike humiliating people that it could legitimately be any of us at any moment. That like on tape is just not the way to do it. Show kindness if you can't show kindness than just keep it moving. Because i mean if you can't necessarily how i mean you can. You can use that phone to call for help. Exactly exactly i mean sometimes i mean i have done a lot of stuff like that too. I have given people bus money to get to treatment which is like fifty miles away from where i live. And i've done the mcdonald's thing. I have anonymously got a lot of stuff out here which i don't even want to do stuff i see stuff i act on it then i move on. You know it's like and i don't do stuff for accolades. it's not my deal. In fact i'm i'm usually more embarrassed and people recognize the fact that i did something because then it's like oh man now they're gonna expect this holiday time as actually allies about it especially where i live funding. I mean some people take advantage of you know you know. I guess. I prefer to help in the anonymous way where it's just like people that really really need it in are not expecting it and they wake up in something is taking care of and it's just a blessing to them and those are the people that generally do pass it on because they know what it was like to be destitute or hungry or worried about their kids. No shoes no. I mean whatever it is you know hearing you are true so i mean sometimes i sometimes really if you just look especially like. There's a lot of homeless people here in. I don't know what draw is because this is a terrible place to be homeless but oftentimes. There's not much more. I can do except literally make eye contact with them. Smile and show them that i recognize that they are still a human being with as much as much as anybody else that they're just they're just not at the top of their game right now. You know and and we. I've been there. I've been home. I don't know if you've been homeless or not. But i know that you went through a struggle You know with with your marriage in your kids and all that and you you definitely struggled you could not get to where you are because somebody know gave you the candy path and said here you go closer. Her you go. Now you're gonna be a in there you know. And that's exactly why. I actually i mean i come from new jersey and it's not the cost of living over there pretty high. I've not been you know living in my mom's house not been ni- being able to afford Out pretty much. We moved down here in tennessee. You know with a budget of not so much and you know we made it on a slim chance so rape you did it and you you've made it and i remember something i read. I kinda of put it together for you. And it was like risky behavior versus a leap of faith. And you know what it's all the it depends on your perception. You know 'cause. I prefer to think of things as we face when i'm not manic in thinking i'm like talking to god and stuff like that you know. It was risky behavior. Because at that time a lot of people were telling me no. Why would you go there. You don't even know where you're going and you know and especially because of that stigma of you know you have bipolar disorder. And this is risky behavior. what are you doing. you know that stigma. So oh yeah. I love stigma. It's my hate stigma a yeah well as a matter. I just kind of funny. Because i really. This is your interview. But i just wanna to like i just want to drop this quick in the podcast global summit going to be speaking at and i am speaking on stigma and mental health and Since i since. I've let people know it the amount of stuff knee as of i beginning. People retelling me their stigma and is now only mental health stigma. And i'm just like wow we. He snakes this preconception ching. We got going on in our country of just because somebody told you this that it must be true because people are not telling you the truth about everything people and i'm not going to give my speech away but Yeah stigma is just massive. And i mean. I know that you're breaking it to your. You're doing the best that you can to To put your voice in the stigma war and as a community. I appreciate you doing that..
"alvarez" Discussed on Dancing with Bipolar
"Ideas but i was actually trying to reach out to people that were helping me with this log because i had a purpose. I had a a bigger idea which was to help people with mental health diagnosis at re eventually. Aiming at the time it didn't work out high expected it to. But i think that my idea was there for me wanting to help people right while set the. It's at the foundation a pretty strong foundation to to to build on for you. Know your your your your company blue gray. I don't wanna call the company. But you're you're endeavour blue-grey and along with europe positively pass it on movement and i don't even know what other stuff you've got going on underneath all that but yeah i mean every as far as i look at it every everything that you do get helped you move forward into whatever your main miss you mission is. It's all it all counts. I mean and you don't know you actually don't know that you were affecting a famous person. I'm gonna tell you that right now and you probably know that now that you you know you've been a little longer that you honestly don't know crew you touch because people aren't really going to be like hey. I was on this bipolar blog. When they're making one hundred million dollars a movie they're not you know what i mean but you don't know that you are not affecting them so yeah i mean to anybody out. There never disregard what you do because the the person that you touch could touch hundred other people and the effect it just goes like waves so yeah never disregard. What you do positive. Yes i think that you know at that time. I didn't think i was. I was going. You know i was thinking that i was doing much and at the at the time. I still don't think i'm doing a lot of momentum. Still building blocks is still built. Exactly into what i think i still doing the creating stages of what i what is your. Yeah what is the big picture of like. Yeah okay. Let's say her clever Three years down the road. How has your how has your mission expanded. Where are you in in you know in in your in your head. Where are you in e. Maybe not thirty. Three years. Because i do have a big goal in mind and My my main goal would be just be helping people with mental health. Noses just maybe some type of organization or something. Where i could find people. Were help people in some kind of way. Because i've had in my life where i felt needed like i needed help and i didn't feel like i was being helped and like this is just a big passion project of mine. I think this is something that in my heart. I think i need to do with mental health diagnoses in general. Because it's something that you know. Just help someone else it. Just it's a feeling you get you know. I do know. I told her. I'm shaking my head. And fatty her going. Yes i actually. I did it. I get it when you get that that anonymous or sometimes not anonymous message or no or in your case because you work directly with people. You might get that phone call. That's like thank you. You have no idea what you how this affected my life in this way or what. Your words meant to me or that you know. I've not i feel like i'm not alone anymore. It's it's humbling is for me. What it is. And and every time i get it. It's like oh my god. I actually fulfilling my mission and it's like it at humbling is only word that i and i'm grateful that i i. I'm sure you are too that you have been given the opportunity that you've been given this life to make these improvements in the world in our own. It's it's it's it's massive. It really is so you know you know take we're speaking to the choir here is like we do get it and to all the people out there listening that we are helping out you know when at the anonymity give opportunity to Speak more about her blue gray program and how you can become involved in that And reach out to us so that you can become well and then you can start your own mission in your own area to make improvement to break stigma to you know to take to take the diagnosis of having mental health out of the shadows and put a face to in be proud of who you are in what you represent because as a community we are superheroes like we turn rocket who. I thought that someone someone brought this up community They tell me that the polar disorder in the mental health jenner. I think our kryptonite and recorded at the same time. It's like we are if we're making our weakness our strength because for some reason we are more creative for some reason. We are more intuitive. We are more we. It makes us stronger. Makes you know we have so many talents. We have so many other things that because of this we you know. It's a lot of people choose to see the negative. But we haven't yes they do. That's why yeah people. Sorry go ahead. Tools to name positively passed it on because we have. We have to choose to see the positives. I love it. So let's talk about talk about this. What is this positivity. Pass it on in the reason. I think i chose to to to do that. Is just simply because mostly. I'm sorry anybody could be on the podcast. You want good with that. My dog to name this was more because Mainly because basically when you do something positive for someone should pass on to someone else and keep going reaction. I totally agree with you. So how what do you do. What is how is this. Just like has just been formulated or have you had this action for a minute. Like what is it that you do like the you know the starbucks thing where you buy the coffee for the guy behind you know you fight him a few things. for example. There was one time that was actually at pizzaria. I just awesome They seem i mean. This is just my intuition. I mean they seem to be having a hard time and Sugary it's okay..
