Minnesota State super lightweight champion Markus “Hooch” Morris (10-2, 6 KO’s) of Duluth, Minnesota will face Los Angeles, California’s Arnold Barboza Jr. (15-0, 5 KO’s) tomorrow night at the Mariott Events Center in Burbank, CA. The bout will be televised live on UniMas. Morris weighed in earlier tonight, coming in at 142.6 pounds while Barboza Jr. was 142.4.

I’m going into this fight as the underdog or a test for Arnold but I’m going to tell you like this, they picked the wrong one.”
