"D Danny Jacobs shit Charl by rob brand. I just don't see it, man. He's a stall punch. I'll tell you this. This is a very strong aggressive kid, how strong you learn house dog we go to around with them goes to around with a guy that you told me it was for sure going to stop a cousin of a month. Let me know where you're you're. Right. I mean, I guess I thought he was going to stop. They're definitely not related, but. Not really. But I I guess the thing is you feel that they're serving people Hymie Gill that he should develop and be and you always get this for Nando Vargas field this guy where he's like, he's very talented. But you just don't wanna put them there yet. And then keep talking about at one sixty one sixty I think it's just like practically just wanted to shoot this kid's corrup- early. Because at some point he's going to lose one of those guys. I don't I don't I wanna pick him against any of those guys. Like you said once they just pump the break for right now. I don't think we anybody on the panel picking didn't hope. Even champions like Billy. Joe Sanders can come down to one sixty two. Boxing, lesson in my opinion. Like, it's just I think that era. Very selective. And how the Progress M in one sixty and if there's a way issue, and the reason why he can't go in there with us fine. Just be very smart and developing this kid because I still see flaws in this kid, and that's one of the most deadly divisions often been so in the Coleman been we got the Dylan all your birth in Comanche in a ten round the way fight there. Go like the a nephew of. No, he is. Nephew. I can't. The entity like the nets. Jamie, progressive's employee of the month two months in a row. Leave a message at the hi, Jamie. It's me, Jamie.

"Momentum going which these other teams the colts. And and Dallas. I mean, they're playing good and have seek Lonzo ball, which they can on the Rams. I I don't know. Why those guys can't stop the run? I mean with the guys they have they haven't been doing it. He runs the ball Dallas has a shot now. And if you look at the way he ran last week against Seattle five point three yards carry. I mean, they've Dallas and Dallas last week by the way, stuffed the NFL's number one rushing offense. Chris Carson looked like a man child against the Niners against Dallas d last week. You ran thirteen times for twenty yards. I mean, less than two yards a pop so they can stuff Seattle's number one rushing attack. Maybe they can stuff girly. I mean, it's going to me. I think that game's really interesting because something tells me Dallas, maybe home cooking, and they're gonna show up in L A, and it's just gonna be over. And it's going to be all Rams, but Dallas death. Has the line in the back to you know, to to hang in that game and win it. All right. Thank you very much. Lou one other item off football for a moment. Patrick McCaw of so much talk about the lawyer. Yeah, he's signed with the raptors. So Larry's buddy the agent Bill. Duffy. Nobody's full Bill. Got him another job after he lasted what one week in in Cleveland. And there's some investigation. I know the the league is looking into exactly how he went from. You know, all suddenly, you know, ten days he he was going to be a cavalier. And then ten days later is waived now, he's a Toronto raptor. And I know there was talk that maybe the maybe the warriors would get some kind of compensation kick back to them. I don't know what the status of that is. And I don't know what grounds they could. They can make that claim that they believe they deserve some kind of some kind of compensation. But I know the league is looking at that. And there's no way when you look at this now at the warriors were going to keep him this when you need fits in his salary cap knowledge, but had the warriors matched the offer to McCaw their tax Bill would have gone from eleven million to sixty one million. Now, not care. How much you're making you want to have it elevate that much for Patrick McCaw? I don't think so. Yeah. By the way, you're listening to Gary and Larry on Camby, our San Francisco ASEAN HD, two San Mateo, these sports leader. And you know, he's not worth that. But at the same time, I don't think Golden State wanted to see him in Toronto. But you see this Golden State now, I guess the NBA is investigating that the warriors one do, you know, shed, his salary cap problem there, and the NBA is examining the the offer sheet that that he signed with the Cavaliers. Saying that all that was kind of done on the down low to benefit Golden State. So I I don't you know, that would not have been how did that benefit gold say well that by him signing again, the New York Times while read the whole thing here. It says investigating the Cavaliers for salary cap. Circumvention a probe the Golden State encourage the league to undertake on the warriors behalf. The NBA examined the two years. Six million dollar offer sheet prior to approving it league sources said the found no reason to disallow it. Most executives are skeptical over possible punishment for the Cavaliers who had a three game window to evaluate and cut him. But anyway, that's so so nothing probably going to happen. But it's just the idea of the warriors come out ahead on this. Well, and if you're Patrick McCaw now you're in Toronto and a on a title contender with a chance to potentially wind up in the NBA finals again. So he's from his perspective things can kinda shook out. Nicely. Yeah. And you got Lowry is is the key guard there, and you know, we'll see from from from where it goes with Patrick McCaw. But again when you start bouncing around from team to team, and maybe this is old thinking how maybe thinking that it just like with all young people today used to be you went you got a job, and you tried to stay there for as long as you could nowadays kids take a job after two years, you're sending out your resume. You're looking to go around as maybe it's the same way in pro sports that the idea of staying with one team a long time that doesn't make you bad news. If you're jumping. Well, I think it has had for him. It probably had a lot to do what he wanted minutes and he wanted to play a lot and he wanted to develop his game. And and get those minutes and he's on a team that he plays. He wants to play the one and you have Steph curry, and you have Shaun Livingston. And you have Quinn cook. And so what that tells you right there is that there's just not a lot of minutes there. And then we're going to be a lot of minutes. Some if you've tried it is bizarre that a guy who won a ring played a role, you know, in seemingly had an a lot of upside potential and a very favorable kind of feeling within the organization about his future wants to play at a level that you know, it's gonna he's basically going to sit out force a trade. Now, he's in Toronto good for him. And hopefully, he found what he's looking for and get some minutes and develops his game. But I to me I I looked at him as a as a six six kid who had who lack strength. Lack confidence. Ten didn't have a real developed offense of game. And, you know, probably needs to be on a second division type team where he can pile up minutes and four time and develop his skills, and it probably, you know, I don't know if even Toronto will be the right spot for him. Because once again, I mean, you're on a competitive team looking to win a title this year. And you are a guy who needs minutes on the floor to develop your skills. So we'll see looking ahead in a few minutes. We're going to have again, Ted Griggs from. From Comcast New York NBC sports bay area. Ted put it on the ground moved to New York is Warren wealthy. You just read some of the quotes. He was a wide receiver for the Oakland Raiders during the sixties and seventies. You've got John Madden saying he could have if he had played long enough. He would have been the greatest wide receiver that ever played and Bill Walsh's in there. He was the most dynamic receiver in football the most feared player in football. And just he has a story that I think is a is interesting from the standpoint of you never know what can happen to you. You can be you know on pace for for greatness as Madden. And and Bill wall said, and then all of a sudden something strikes you down. And this is you know, what you gotta help me out sin and on. What is that what sin on? I have. No. Yeah. That's it. That's where he went when he had some problems. They they said he went to. Senate on and John Madden said he was never the same. When he came back from that from that program was a program to help help out young people with with mental problems. And when he came back he was never the same. So and then he fell into a life with alcohol, and but just to show how precarious these opportunities really are. And if you don't take full advantage. They they go away and your life changed changes dramatically, by the way, the text line rising up. Gary the Cowboys actually trained in Oxnard, bad knowledge. No not Thousand Oaks. Now will these two different guys? One guy said trains and Oxnard. I stand corrected. Then I stand corrected, and you know, who else is big Oxnard. Go ahead. Nando Vargas other the bible much you ever watching Fernando. Vargas fights at the end of the fighting love to Oxnard talks NAR. Now, I have to stand corrupt because the raiders took over a hotel down in Oxnard. Do you remember that? And that when they were with in LA, and Al Davis is always he had them turn their whole back the back yard so to speak into a raider full length football field and all this stuff. And then of course, the only came back up to Oakland, the hotel was stuck with. But you know, the other thing we'll get to twelve fifteen students. Lahser is gonna join us the as chronicle beat writer broke this Cuyler Murray to the NFL draft story. But you know, what that means if you're a forty Niner fan if Arizona decides they're going to trade away Josh Rosen and draft Tyler Murray. First overall at means Nick Bosa winds up in a forty Niner uniform. He didn't play this year by all accounts. He's the best player in the draft. You know, six five, you know, two hundred sixty pound defensive end the Niners number one. Need is a outside pass rusher. I don't know it makes you a little nervous because you know, Joey Bosa was awesome in college and has been awesome in the pros. But he's heard a lot Nick Bosa hasn't played the rest of this year to get ready for the draft. He hasn't played a lot of football because of injury, the kids film is awesome. Gary. I mean, it's really you watch this kid coming off the edge. He's a power base two hundred sixty pound pass rusher who is so athletic that he can get parallel to the to the ground and really bend the edge. So if Cuyler Murray coming out and winding up with maybe in the first pick in the draft. Now, that's a lot of speculation. But Arizona's got the first pick. And if their head coach is intrigued by him Nick Bosa could fall right into the lap. So he's got that would be a great way. Bloodline is great. That's for sure has come in. And he didn't play this year because he just he got hurt. And then he decided to put it away and get ready for the draft. And which is a little bit of a gamble. But I guess when you're that big a talent, right? I mean he could have played near the end of the season. Correct. I put on the film because I was skeptical because I figured out. Well, you know, I mean, maybe this kids mostly hype is brother has a big name. Yeah. Coming out of Ohio State. And then you you saw role in that film back and forth. And you can see this is an very very advanced player. This is like this is like a a rookie, but like almost like a five year vet. I mean, he's got everything you're looking for in outside pass rush ability encounter moves. And I mean, he's a power base guy. But he also has unbelievable speed Nath lettuces them. So Nick Bosa, you know, if he falls to the Niners a to that would be a break, and that's no hesitation you. Would bet your house on that. Well that what the forty Niners take him. No, I wouldn't bet the house at all. Pass rusher. Well, but I mean, I mean you just heard Mike Barr yesterday say quitting Williams the interior kid from from Alabama. Josh Allen, the outside rusher from Kentucky is going to be heard from clown. Feral the outside rusher from Clemson. It's all beauty and the the beholder. There's big Ed Oliver at Houston Devon, white the linebacker from LSU, greedy Williams, the corner smell issue. There's some big time transcended type football players at the top of the draft in the process of evaluating malls, all really just begun. So, but yeah, Nick Bosa if false yet to you'd have a hard time, not picking him. He's that good of a prospect. It'd be fun to pick up. Just for a few minutes before we get into this war wells thing for how many of you really feel like it would be a good move for the raiders to stay here for that one year in play at I was gone with AT and T two. But at at oracle. Park. Just would it mean that much to you as a sports fan? I guess you know as much as raider fan. I mean a lot to anybody else. But if you're a raider fan, you want another year being able to watch your team or do you want to watch them on the tube? Like, you're going to do basically going forward for the rest of your life as a human being get him outta here. You know, my thing is somebody doesn't want to be here. Let him go. Now, why delay the inevitable? But on the other hand as a as a sports fan..

And when he said that to me, he apologise maybe remember, maybe didn't. But I'm glad that he apologize. He give me his hand. And awesome, man. You know? Thinking wanted that's one it maybe the wounds started to heal that day at that restaurant. Maybe not. But with few exceptions, even the most bitter rivals inside the ring, eventually choose respect over rancor, the rematch. Vargas wanted never happened. And both men were able to move forward. Vargas. Now forty one years old has mellowed out a fair bit since his fighting days, he relocated from southern California to Las Vegas where he owns and operates a boxing gym in a poor section of town. That helps to keep kids off the street giving them a place to work out and even do their homework with help from tutors after school one of the supporters of his charitable Fernando. Vargas fighting foundation is none other than Oscar de LA Hoya now forty five and the president of golden boy promotions. This is a relatively recent development. But the bad blood is behind them as both explained to me, it was until recently that we we have made a pact than were were were friends though. And we actually supporting. His foundation that he some amateur boxing tournament that he's putting together to raise funds for on the privileged kids. And so I'm going to be the main sponsor, and so we're so we're actually where very cordial to each other. We respect each other. So yeah, it's it's, but it only happened recently less couple years, basically, he's a real good canoed. You know, I'm sure he thinks differently than than what he thought of me, you know, and I think of him Jim skimpy of what I thought about shows is I've been able to to get to know Minogue it. So he's a good good dude and help some my foundation things about the kids. And so as really, you know, Pleasanton for him to do that, here's Robert Garcia on the importance of delahoya in Vargas developing a respectful relationship. There's the inside the ring what you're doing. But outside of the ring everybody should get along and everybody should be friends and everybody should should respect each other and support each other. You know, then finally being able to talk and work together. It's good to see them. No after all that the years of bad, blood and bad blood. And finally, you know being able to get along and talk show things great. You know Oscars. Always been a great person's a lot. It's not that was funny holding that he was more for numbers pride and for those and group proton ASTA, but I'm glad that he finally realized visit us board. And I'm sure he has it was the better, man. Oscar, great person, so why not get along and work together is the knockout of Vargas Oscars, greatest win among his biggest fights against elite opponents many of which ended in close decisions one way or the other. It's probably his most emphatically. It was a defining win for Oscar, especially as a Mexican American fighter as Larry merchant reflects. I think that it was a hard fought fight for him to win over his own people. So to speak. And it took fight by fight in a whole career for him. And maybe beating Vargas was. Is the last part of that? But you can't make people of you. And for one another. They held back. Right. Oscar in hindsight husker was important guy in boxing in. He fought everybody in didn't always win, but always fought them, and he had a great career as a transformative figure boxing as for ARGUS. The question looking back is whether he could have had a better career at the Trinidad fight not happen. Had he been matched less aggressively fargos won multiple title belts. And though he lost his two biggest fights he forced the best out of his opponents both times. I asked Jim Lampley was this about as good as for Nando. Vargas was ever going to be. I think that was about as good as he was ever going to be losing close to the likes of Oscar de LA the thing. I always said about financial was that he had terrific SC. Gills? He had a boxing mind. He saw the way he beat. I cortez. You could not deny that he he knew how to box and he knew how to find an opponent's weak point and exploited. There were a lot of really good things about him. But he did not have superstar quickness. He didn't have that that extra flash. That that dynamism that Oscar had the turn it Ed had the chain had. You know, they were all in his in his arena in his area at that time and all of them were a beat quicker than Fernando and the end of the day the thing that separates superstars from stars. Or stars from good fighters to me is quickness. Can you do something to report it doesn't immediately? See because you do it. So quickly truly great fighters. Have that for Nando did not in two thousand two it would have been almost impossible to get Vargas to say something in praise of de LA Hoya. But this is twenty eighteen fargos isn't interested in line to himself or anyone else about the man he spent so much of his amateur and professional career measuring himself against. Osu's the best fighter that I fought. Technically, the best fighter. He lied through a jab downstairs, and you put your ran in front of you using lead you pay but the Ryan over the time. So, you know, very quick hands. Also. Yes power. But you know, the best technical fighter the best part of that that I bought pumper pound. Be awesome.

"Appearances in Oscar's arsenal during fights. You know, what we had a an understanding in Floyd that I wasn't going use the shoulder roll. 'cause they never worked for me. I just just didn't work for me. I didn't I didn't. I didn't really appreciate it as much. I have more of a classic with your guard up both fists protecting your face. But what he did teach me was first of all he got me in great shape. I mean, he was very military. When it came to waking up in the morning training. I would run with boots with combat boots. Every single day. He was very strict regimen was just I mean incredible. But he did teach me how to throw different combinations. My defense was tighter. My jobs were just impeccable. When I was with him because he would have me throw so many jobs during training. He would always tell me you have to throw minimum fifty jabs per round. That's just the jab. Here's Joel delahoya sharing memories of the partnership between Oscar and Floyd senior. I remember interviewing we're at the at Oscars office. We would interview different coaches, and they'd give us their their their insight employed on on what they do with us ker and. Okay. That sounds good fine. We'll we'll call you. And and then Floyd came in. And the first thing he does is tells us who stand up while sitting around the table conference table, and he tells us stand up, and he tells them to throw jab and Floyd starts, you know, with his movements and blocking and fainting and this and that and the other and schools, I kind of get myself into and my dad just kind of looked at each other. And we're like, okay this actually physically teaching off or something right now speaking, that's a good thing. I think Oscar really respected Floyd. I mean, he respected everyone don't wrong. But I mean, he really likes void. Because Floyd really, you know, was was it was almost a father figure type of relationship, you know, because we know how junior and and senior at the time warrant getting along. And I think Floyd was looking. For for that type of relationship, and he may have found it with us. Good. I'm you know, my dad and Oscar, you know, they had their of some bounds and team I've been looking, you know, for some respect from father figures. Well, and you may have slowed as well. The more things changed Oscar had a new trainer and a couple of defeats on his record for Nando. Vargas was also no longer unbeaten one thing stayed the same. Vargas kept talking smack about Oscar angling for a showdown finally in early two thousand two they signed to fight each other. And at a press conference announcing the may fourth pay per view of ant, Vargas escalated, his attack from verbal the physical shoving delahoya the first time they were positioned face to face Oscar recalls the incident, I understood what he was trying to do. You know, he he has to fight angry. He has to have some type of motivation for himself to to to fight with with that with that passion that he does. But I was I was. I was always a fire that was cool. Calm and collective that's it. But he pushed me like, really hard. And that kind of started, you know, kind of got under my skin a bit. So from that moment on when he pushed me, I remembered training every single day wanting to knock him out because of that push. If Oscar wanted to knock Vargas out, he was going to have to wait four months longer than he'd planned or maybe he was going to choose to wait for months longer matchmaker. Carl Moretti explains it was originally scheduled for may, and you know, delahoya quote unquote, suffered a hand injury. You know, which I literally got off the plane from the training camp with Vargas, I landed in my phone blew up saying, you know, the fights off. So what do you mean the fights off and all this and delahoya supposedly had handed jewelry, and it was rescheduled September. And the unfortunate thing is Vargas was looking tremend-. Indus in that camp. I just literally saw it. You know, sparring partners conditioning weight everything was on Mark. And to stop that have to get out of camp. You know and pick it up again in September is not easy to do. But that's you know, that's exactly what happened. And and we move onto the fight in September as opposed to make. I mean, look there they were both up in big bear. Which is ironic, you know, because it's such a small community, and you see things and you hear things, and let's just say Oscar wasn't having the greatest camp of his life. And combine that with the hand injury. Hence, you have the pull out, you know, I'm not saying I'm just saying. The postponement extended the longest inactive streak of delahoya career four hundred forty seven days by the time of the rescheduled September fourteenth date and by the time training resumed. There was something very different environments as camp in addition to conditioning coach John Philbin who'd been with Fernando for several camps. Vargas added a nutritionist from New Jersey with a bodybuilding background Muhsen Ali to the team, according to Robert Garcia Ollie's presence was problematic from the start one thing that I that I was that woman one Fernando dried in another conditioning coach, I remember the day. It was from New Jersey, I believe in the east coast. So he brought in that guy and Fernando really beta fish into this guy bit of everything else. It was women's where my dad my dad would would tell them for Nando you have to we have to run with two Houston springs. We have to run the mountain and. My dad, don't worry. That knows what he's doing. That knows what he's doing. And he was working with for Nando lot on on building. His body Fernando's intention was to look solid to live ripped. And this guy was dip did exactly Fernando one. He just worked on making sure for under look good when they came to the to the wains and all that and for Endo grid, look solid. There was there was times when my dad would wanna do more around with for Nando and brand was just so tired. And and his body was just tired that. He couldn't do the work that my dad wanted him to do we we had a couple of our friends from oxide in training camp with with us also. And then the few times that we that we ran in the in the mountains, or or in the invite les Brenda was always falling behind all these guys. And for Nando would never wanna be behind. Anybody for an uncool was was always the leader. When it came to to run. That he never won anybody to beat him of my my dad. My dad is an old school trainer who who always trained me and financial to Hardaway. You know? My dad had no idea, you know, what vitamins fighters, you take or or or or supplements or or energy drinks? None of that. It was it was more. It's no accident that Garcia mentioned supplements there after the delahoya fight

It's it's how is it changed in your mind? Well, I remember when I used to fight. I mean, my fights were exciting. You You know? know, where where we're I would throw like a ten punch combination that you don't see that anymore. You know, why do you think? You mentioned it's the money. You know, it's it's it's there's there's too much money involved. Therefore fighters don't wanna take the risk. You know, you know, what I'm saying? I smart, but come on give us some entertainment. I wanna see a knockdown somebody knocked out. So you you would go in.

So you said you were happiest when you retaliating ring who when you happiest to retaliate against the most Oscar. I would have to say, gee, that's a tough one. I fought this kid who was local name for Nando Vargas. Okay. He was from Oxnard. I believe and he was he was talking so much smack, you know, he was talking so much smack and this this this guy genuinely like just didn't like me for some strange reason. So it was it was kind of like the villain and the good guy. Right. But he was talking so much. And I remember man, I can't wait to get my hands on him. I cannot wait to get my hand. And he actually almost knocked me out in the first round. He had me through the ropes, and I I was holding on for the year life, and some for some reason I survived it, and I ended up knocking them out and they laugh, so, but you can imagine in between the fight was just brutal. It was it was a pretty cool. No kidding. Yeah. And now again, golden boy promotions with the first ever m a show at the form. What do you like about chocolate Dell and Tito Ortiz?
