Sportstalksocial Big Scoop Special-"The Hexecutioner"

This could be the breakthrough we needed on sportstalk as getting a world champion to join our ranks would be more than awesome and bringing with him his fan base would just be the cherry on the top.

I never thought the day would turn out like it did when I woke up this morning as I went into the office for once and things kind of just happened. The family business has Everlast as one of their brands which most of us know is a well known boxing brand around the world.

Boxing has been on a sabbatical as such during the pandemic which is a real problem for the fighters as what do they do? Today in walked Hekkie Bulder who is South Africa's most decorated fighter. Most of you may not have heard of him as he is a junior flyweight or lightweight. In his last fight which was back on the 31st December 2018 he lost his WBA Junior Flyweight title to the current champion Hiroto Kyaguchi who stopped him in the final round of the fight.

He is now on the comeback trail and came in to collect gloves and strapping etc. The problem he said was that during the lockdown period he hasn't had a pool of fighters he could fight locally and had to wait for international fighters. There was one local fight he could have taken but in his mind that was a backward step and wouldn't further his career.

Titles won to date.

IBO All Africa junior flyweight, IBO junior flyweight, IBO minimuweight, WBA interim minimumweight, WBA minimumweight, WBA “super” minimumweight, WBA Pan African junior flyweight, IBO light flyweight, WBA/IBF/Ring magazine light flyweight titles, and WBA “super” light flyweight title.

We spoke for a few hours this afternoon and has agreed for a photo shoot next week with his belts. The plan is to get him on sportstalk in some form or other so I don't want to tell all right now. Either I do a series on him with his stories or he can do that himself as he has so much to offer. The best would be to get him to join us so let me do my magic as I believe that this can be done and not a difficult sell. A really down to earth guy who has loads of great stories and hopefully the first of many professional sportsmen that will join us.

We chatted about training and dietary needs building up to a fight plus what it is like on weigh in week which was fascinating hearing it from his view point and past experiences. Whatever happens we will do a series in some form that will lead up to his fight on March 21st which I will be attending. He doesn't even know where the fight is happening yet as the venue is still being negotiated along with everything else. I will have more information next week, but this is a great opportunity not to be missed.

He is 32 so the time is ticking and the lockdown period has been super frustrating as your career is on hold. He is the no 1 ranked contender for the WBC and expect him to win in 3 weeks time putting his career back on the right path. His plans are simple and that is getting the world titles back over the coming years. Whatever happens this will be pretty cool for all of us to follow as this does not happen everyday.

My eyes has been quite glued as I read through. Great strategy and I hope it yields out something really positive. Hoping for some better news from this end soonest.

I am fairly confident I can get him on board as he seemed really keen and offered to do a photo shoot when I mentioned sportstalk. Will know as he will phone and let me know which day next week as I know he is busy training right now so he still has gaps in between sparring and gym sessions..

Way to go, dude, I hope it works out and will be looking forward to hearing all about it. You never know who you can bump into sometimes and its even better when you have something that interests them.

I tend to bump into everyone lol. Right place right time and all that so it should be good. He seemed keen as he needs all the publicity he can get as fighters are only current when they are active. With the lock down they have had nothing and bet you anything he would love to have a hive account to play around on.

Wow! It will really great for Sportstalk when he’s joining with us here.
Update us with good news about him :)

Nothing is guaranteed yet but will know more when we meet up next week.

That's amazing. Maybe you can ask if you can put little sneak peaks here and there in sports talk social. Maybe he can get some fans to drop by and check the site. Ultimately it is up to him, but I am hopeful we can get him and some sports fan added to the community.

That's awesome! Just so you (and he) knows, he now has a new fan. You were right in your assessment that I've never heard of him but this gives me a reason to pay attention. I grew up in the golden age of boxing in the '80s (Hearns, Hagler, Sugar Ray Leonard, Duran, etc) and was fascinated by the whole spectacle of it all. It followed through to Tyson and Holyfield. But it has since dropped off considerably with the advent of MMA and the loss of the characters who used to surround the boxing world. This gives me a chance to have a rooting interest again. I'll be very interested to follow along. Hopefully he'll realize the potential of what's going on here with Hive, Sportstalksocial, et al, and will come aboard. The more the merrier and now is the perfect time to get started.

Same as you really as found nothing interesting to watch since. Hate the idea fighters are protected by promoters and need a boxer to follow. There are others in their camp obviously so let us start with one and he will get the others to join. Hoping we will get others from various countries from around the world soon.

This is too dope! as a boxing fan, I really like using this platform to talk about boxing lately. I hope it becomes the norm to have fighters on sports talk and maybe stream on vimm so the fans can chat with them and interact with the fighters...

So much could come of this but awsome news!

Wow this is amazing news . I know it isn't guaranteed yet but it is all right , it got me excited just to think what might happen if he actually hops on .

Fantastic!!
