- Jamahal Hill delivered a spectacular knockout of Johnny Walker on Saturday
- Stunning win has the highly-rated prospect rising up ranks at light-heavyweight
- Hill wants to take on Jiri Prochazka in fight that would elevate him further
- He said: ‘So I feel like I’ve got that swag. I feel like he was one of those guy’
Jamahal Hill is desperate for a fight with fellow knockout artist Jiri Prochazka, following his stunning victory over Johnny Walker on Saturday night.
The American delivered an almost cartoonish KO of Walker, sending him stiff to the canvas in the first round of their main event.
Hill reflected afterwards that there’s only one fight at light-heavyweight of interest at this moment in time, even though Prochazka is fighting for the title on May 7.

He said: ‘Right now, other than the Jiri [Prochazka] fight, not really [anybody I want to fight].
‘Everybody else is kind of tied up, and then the way that they fight and kind of like how they bring the fight out.
‘The reason I want Jiri so bad, I feel like that’s a fight from both ends, it would be a banger. I think it would be promoted well and not too many other people have that star ability like that.
‘I feel like I talk well. I feel like I dress well. I feel like I fight well. So I feel like I’ve got that swag. I feel like he was one of those guys.’
Hill is a rising star in the light-heavyweight division and says he can inject life into it
Prochazka is scheduled to take on Glover Teixeira but is likely to face Hill in the future
Prochazka is taking on Glover Teixeira at UFC 274 in May and Hill understands that he’ll have to be patient when it comes to a clash with the Czech.
But he feels he can liven up a division that badly needs new blood, adding: ‘I feel like the division is a little tired,’ Hill said. ‘Some guys need some naps. ‘Sweet Dreams’ is here to provide them.’
And on his massive highlight-reel KO of Walker, he reflected: ‘I was just being patient.
‘He’s a long guy, he’s big, he’s been working. He had some nice set ups, some little tricks when we were going. He felt strong whenever he tried to put me down. Just stay with it and flow. Keep flowing, keep going with it and I know eventually, I’ll find my spot.
‘Initially whenever [the punch] landed, I saw him kind of wobble and stumble. Whenever I saw him wobble like that and go back, I knew to get in and put another one on him and finish him.’
