John Morrison is going to step into the boxing ring in April 2023 at Creator Clash in a content creator vs content creator bout.
He is scheduled to take on Harley Morenstein of Epic Meal Time and recently discussed how this unexpected fight opportunity came about.
Speaking to Jeremy Lambert and Stephen Jenson on The Spotlight, Morrison revealed:
“It is kind of hard to find an opponent for Harley. I met iDubbbz and everyone at Creator Clash 1 when I was in Dad’s corner, and it was so electric and I was so pumped up that I think everyone could tell I was excited about boxing and the event.”
The “Dad” in question would be the creation of comedian Nathan Barnatt.
“I got a call from Ian and Anisa, basically, a little while ago, and they asked me if I would consider fighting and I said, ‘Yeah,’ and then they asked if I would consider fighting Harley.
“I only know two people closely, him and [Dad]. I would rather fight someone who is not my friend. Then, he took the fight. They texted me back and said, ‘Harley said he would fight you.’
“I was like, ‘I guess I’ll fight him.’ Then, I thought about it, and realized that in the world of pro wrestling, I don’t hit anyone harder than I hit my friends.
“I’ve knocked Sheamus’ teeth out before, and we laughed about it the next day.
“When I started thinking of it along those lines, okay, we’re just going to punch each other until one of us can’t stand up anymore, and I hope he’s still my friend after that!”
Morrison has been training with Dad and Josh Barnett for the fight.
Dad currently holds the fastest KO in Creator Clash history against Matt Watson and in 22 seconds at the inaugural Creator Clash in May 2022.
Morriosn will compete against Barnett at Josh Barnett’s Bloodsport taking place during WrestleMania weekend.
It was recently reported that Jon Moxley was also set to appear.
