To say Anthony Morrison has fought for everything
he has is an understatement. This is a fighter that
has literally put his belongings and dreams in a duffle
bag and left town to get off the rough streets of
Philly. Coming off of impressive wins over Kevin Roddy
and Tim Troxel, Anthony “Antmo” Morrison will fight the
biggest fight of his career when he faces former WEC
star and American Top Team standout Micha Miller at
Shine fights on September 4th. We sat down with “Antmo”
to talk about his upcoming fight.

Anthony Morrison: I think Micha is a great
fighter and I am ready to fight him.
SP: We have heard rumblings that people are
wondering why you are even on this card and that you are
not on Micha’s level. How does that make you feel?

SP: Has it been hard being away from family
for so long?
AM: It’s been very hard on me and on my family
at times. I am living out of my bags and often wonder if
this dream is ever going to happen for me. The pressure
can get so great that I sometimes wonder if I can keep
it going. I know there is no future for me or my family
if I stay in Philly right now so I am driven by that to

AM: I have a game plan and all I need to do is
stay on it. I’m not a trash talker so all I will say is
I’m ready to take this fight wherever it needs to go and
I am very focused and very determined.
SP: Any last words?
AM: I would like to thank my coach, Kru Brian
Crenshaw and my team at Combat Sports Center. I would
like to thank Shine for giving me the chance to fight in
their show and I promise that on Sept 4th I am bringing
a fight to Shine.
