Tahdooahnippah feels now is the time to show the world what they have never seen, “A real wild Comanche! No fighter in the world brings what I bring to the ring.” From the pound of the Native American drum, to the breath taking display of Native American Fancy War Dancers, to the hip hop sounds of his Native American rappers. Comanche Boy tops it off with his power punching, fan friendly style, knocking his opponents outs. He then performs his own Comanche victory dance, taking his opponents soul to the creator. Comanche Boy is here and Star Boxing is going to take him to a world title.
