Saint Paul, MN is about to get a taste of “Mr. fight of the night”. It’s hard to attend a show where Hultin is fighting and not leave thinking about his fight. Obviously that is not always a great thing for The Hitman, but for the fans…. well, his following is proof of their approval. Hultin has yet to be able to fight in front of a home audience but always has a large portion of venue filled with Hitman fanatics. (Tyler Hultin is from Fergus Falls, MN and now lives in Fargo ND) For his Saint Paul appearance he has had to have the promoter send tickets three separate times!! Tyler last fought this past April in what most would say was tougher than needed win. Ortley always comes to bang, and Hitman obliged. Most think Hutlin could have/should have taken Silas out before the final bell, but styles make fights and Hitman likes to please the fans!! Below is a Q&A we had with Tyler Hultin. Look for a lot more from The Hitman in 2013, but dont look past Travis Perzynski, he is coming to win, and he too is quite fan friendly….
April 7th fight didn’t go as planned. I was happy to get the W, but my performance was far from what I’m capable of! Everyone that knows me knows that’s the truth! Just goes to show you that training is key! And it can control the outcome!
There was a ton of excitement about a showdown between you and Corey Rodriguez that was to take place this past September, but boxing happened. How disappointing was that to you?
It definitely was a Disappointment! I look at Corey Rodriguez as a top Fighter in Minnesota! Having that chance to train and fight a fighter like that really can show you what your made of! It would have been my 2nd time making it down to fight at 154. That is where I feel the sharpest and strongest! Hopefully another opportunity will present itself down the road!
Hunting is a passion of yours, even causing you to have to miss a September 15 date, did you get your bear? On that topic, what sort of training will you be doing during deer season?
Hunting is a way of life for us! Like Boxing we train for it, ha! Missing September 15th was hard to deal with, especially having the 29th called off!.. For sure fights are hard to come by and when they’re taking from you its even harder! Preparations for November 17th have been going real good! Coach Hultin has been having me hit the deer trails! A lot of agility involved. Axing on old trees, tossing logs, climbing trees, and hopefully by this weekend dragging deer! “No Bear for me this year, my Brother Tanner Hultin Shot a nice 215pd black Bear” our hunting party all had opportunities but you always wait for the right one!
You are fighting Travis Perzynski (1,1), he went the distance with Jon Schmidt (10,2) and TKOed Bobby Butters (1,1) in the first round of their fight. What are your thoughts on this upcoming challenge?
Everyone fights each other different, that will be our case in our upcoming bout! I’m looking very forward to it!
Kaos and I have been getting gym time together! Kolle is a big help for me in the gym because he keeps me at bay. His Training methods and composure help me become better! Just last night during our sparring session, I can get wild at times, right away while sparring he’s reminding me to keep composure! Great guy to be able to train with, we help push each other! Great to have in the gym! I can’t take away from what I’m getting from my other trainers! Potential moves may be made but at this time will keep it to what we know!
November 17 is looking like a who’s who of Minnesota boxing at many different weights, but light middle and middleweight will be well represented. How interested will you be in watching all of the possible future match-ups?
I think that is what intrigues me the most! Its almost like Who’s next! Haha!
Speaking again of the star-studded show. Are you excited to be able showcase what you’ve got in front of a new audience?
Absolutely! My name is known throughout Minnesota, yet my appearance is very shaded from only taking part in fights in the Northern area.. I’m very happy for the opportunity and hope that it continues! This will be a great show to be a part of!
I Hope you enjoy! I’m a fire cracker when it comes to being in that ring! Its Home away from Home! And I don’t stop until that last bell rings!
Caleb Truax is headlining this event and is probably Minnesota’s biggest draw, does that add to the appeal of fighting on this show?
Yes it does, I’m a fan! He’s definitely made a name for himself and what better than fighting on a card with Truax headling! It would have been great to hit up traux’s camp for this fight! Prior engagements didn’t allow me to do so. I hope the offer will be there again for upcoming event!
160 is a fine weight. But its not for me!.. 154 is where I want to be!
Is there anything you would like to add? And how can people get tickets from you?
Good luck to all the fighters and their teams November 17th! I look forward to fighting in front of a new crowd and to put the new tools to work that the coaches and I having been working on through camp!
