Kenzie Morrison, Contender star Shane Mosley Jr. to share Kansas bill
This Saturday night at Memorial Hall in Kansas City, heavyweight puncher Kenzie Morrison shares a bill with Shane Mosley Jr.
Kenzie is the son of former world champion Tommy Morrison and the spitting image to boot.
So far in his career, Morrison has racked up 14 victories and two draws, with twelve big wins coming via knockout.
Still only 28, Morrison returns for the first time in over a year.
Also on the bill, Mosley Jr. is back in action for the first time since his Contender showing.
The son of Shane Mosley reached the final of the EPIX Tournament, eventually losing to Brandon Adams on points.
Losing every round of ten, the 28 year-old competes in a six-rounder. In contrast, Adams battles middleweight star Jermall Charlo in a huge match-up.
An example of the fine margins involved in taking part in a TV competition.
Morrison faces Leroy Childs, whilst Mosley battles Bernard Thomas.
The Joe Kelly event features featherweight Fidel Cervantes and heavyweight Sam Shewmaker in respective bouts.

The co-headliner takes place at Soboba Casino Resort. The telecast begins at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT and will also feature a 10-round clash of middleweight contenders as Hugo “The Boss” Centeno Jr. faces Willie “El Mongoose” Monroe Jr. in the co-main event.
