Smith Trophy

After a stellar 2018 for Morson fighters, we could be looking at the biggest year yet in terms of the company’s involvement in the sport at the highest level. 

Three of Morson’s marquee ambassadors have positioned themselves for potential mega fights throughout 2019 with Callum Smith, Antony Crolla and Nathan Gorman all simultaneously ready for their defining moment.

Callum Smith vs Golovkin/Canelo

Callum Smith sealed his position amongst the elite at super middleweight by defeating George Groves to win the Ali Trophy back in September and a fight against one of the pound for pound best in the sport seems a near certainty. Even better, it will more than likely be in the UK.


One of the names being heavily linked with Smith is the heavy hitting Kazakhstani, Gennady Golovkin. Promoter Eddie Hearn told talkSport last year that Golovkin was his ‘No. 1 choice for Callum next year’ and stated he had already spoken with GGG’s promoter. Hearn also entertained the possibility of the fight taking place at Anfield which has been a lifetime goal for Smith and has now been made possible after the stadium received the green light to host combat sports events for the first time last September.

During an exclusive interview with Morson, Mundo was asked whether fighting a big name like Golovkin at Anfield would top winning the Super Series:

“I don’t know, I think winning the whole event of fighting at Anfield would probably top fighting in Saudi Arabia. Obviously being a Liverpool lad, I’d have all my home fans there and fighting at Anfield is something that I thought would never be possible”

Another option on the table for Callum is Saul “Canelo” Alvarez who is currently ranked as the best active Boxer in the world today. The three weight World Champion recently defeated the aforementioned Golovkin and has a record of 51-1 -2, with notable wins over Amir Khan, Rocky Fielding and Callum’s brother, Liam Smith. Aside from the massive reputation of Canelo and the worldwide attention he brings to the sport, another incentive for this fight would be to avenge his brother’s defeat which would create for an interesting story.

Whether it’s Golovkin or Canelo, it’s clear that this will be one of the biggest spectacles in boxing this year and Morson would be following the scouse star every step of the way.

Anthony Crolla vs Vasyl Lomachenko

Widely regarded as one the most technically gifted fighters ever to step inside a Boxing ring, Vasyl Lomachenko is the puzzle yet to be solved during this unstoppable stage of his career.  Back in August, it was reported that Lomachenko may be interested in fighting Manchester’s beloved Anthony Crolla and soon after Crolla was matched against Daud Yordan to decide the number one contender for the Ukrainian’s WBA Super Lightweight title.

Anthony subsequently defeated Yordan in November, setting up an encounter with one of the most respected athletes in the sport and the battle is likely to take place stateside as the former World Champion told Sky Sports:

 “If the fight gets made, it’s more than likely it would be in America... you’d imagine New York or Vegas”

A win over Lomachenko would send shockwaves throughout the sport and arguably be greater than reclaiming the world title for Crolla. This would be another opportunity for a Morson fighter to etch their mark in history in 2019 and we hope Anthony gets his chance!

Nathan Gorman vs Daniel Dubois

Fans have clamoured throughout 2018 for this battle of two of Britain’s most exciting up and coming heavyweights and 2019 may very well be the year Morson’s Nathan Gorman faces off with Daniel Dubois. 

The young stars have captured the attention of many in the sport with Frank Warren pushing both heavily on BT Sport and both boasting undefeated records in their short careers. The two have a long history as they were teammates in the GB amateur squad and even shared a flat together.

This fight draws big similarities to Anthony Joshua vs Dillian Whyte in that due to the ability, talent and marketability of the two men involved neither man loses in this bout as it puts both on the world stage.

We visited Gorman during his training camp prior to his last win over Razvan Cojanu and he briefly touched on the possibility of a clash with 'Dynamite' in the near future:

 “He’s been on BT Sport since day one, in the fans eyes I’m the underdog and I’ll play that part. It’s a blessing that we’re both under the same matchmaker because it’s a fight that I want, probably he wants it and when it gets made it’ll be a massive fight”

If these matches come to fruition this year, it’ll indubitably be the biggest year Morson has had in the sport and there is every reason to be excited for what’s to come.
