Undefeated Junior Welterweight contender Ryan “Blue Chip” Martin appeared on a live-stream of the Pay Me No Mind Show, a sports and entertainment podcast, to discuss his successful 2018 debut. During the evening of Tuesday, March 27, Martin (21-0, 12 KOs) headlined longtime Gennady Golovkin promoter Tom Loeffler’s “Hollywood Fight Nights” event which marked the launch of his new series intended to introduce boxing fans to the faces of tomorrow’s premium cable television stars.
Martin broke down Colombian Luis Eduardo Florez (23-9, 19 KOs) over four dominant rounds before stopping the veteran at the 30 seconds mark to earn the 12th knockout of his career. As the 25-year old Chattanooga native unleashed his punishing combinations of punches, tens of thousands of avid boxing fans contributed to the performance with their comments in the live stream’s chat on the newly formed 360 Promotions’ Facebook page.
The live stream also included the debut of standout amateur Brian Ceballos, a welterweight from Brooklyn, New York. Both Ceballos and Martin represent key players in the future of Loeffler’s 360 Promotions, and they’re also both signed to Split-T Management.
During Martin’s interview, the former Lightweight junior titlist shared his thoughts on options for his Big Bear training camp mate Gennady Golovkin, his outlook on the talent-laden Junior Welterweight division, training alongside power-punching IBF and WBA Super World Cruiserweight champion Murat Gassiev, his role in Loeffler’s world championship aspirations for his fledgling 360 Promotions, Broner-Vargas and much more.
