Ajose Olusegun Livid: I Would Whip Erik Morales' Ass!

By Ryan Burton
 
BoxingScene.com recently spoke to undefeated junior welterweight challenger Ajose Olusegun (30-0) who made his U.S. debut on September 30th when he defeated Ali Chebah via unanimous decision in a fight that was televised by Showtime as part of their ShoBox series.  The fight was a WBC title eliminator.  By winning the fight Olusegun became Erik Morales' mandatory challenger.
 
Olusegun is a native Nigerian who has fought most of his career in the United Kingdom. Since the big September win, he has heard Morales' name mentioned in many possible fights but none of which included himself in a near future showdown with the Mexican Icon.
 
"He isn't going to say my name because I am going to whip his ass," Olusegan bluntly stated.
 
The reality of the situation is that Olusegan isn't very known in the United States and Morales has many other more lucrative options.  Olusegun understands, but he hopes Morales respects his position as the mandatory challenger and grants him the opportunity to face him in the ring.
 
"I am just saying that he knows that he can't beat me.  He isn't going to make a lot of money fighting me and he knows that I will beat him.  If he knew he could beat me he would fight me anyway even for a little money but he knows he can't beat me so he is trying to avoid me.  I am not going to let that happen.  The WBC rule states that he is supposed to fight me.  They mandated me as the challenger," explained the Nigerian.
 
While Olusegun would love to face Morales he isn't against the WBC stripping Morales if he decides to fight someone else.  In the event Morales is stripped then Olusegun would most likely face the highest rated challenger available for the title.  Even though Morales wouldn't make a lot of money facing Olusegun, it would be a career high payday for Olusegun if he were to fight Morales.
 
"If he isn't going to fight me then he needs to be stripped.  That is the rule.  The title becomes vacant and I have to fight someone else.  It doesn't matter who I fight.  I just want my chance to fight for the world title and get the belt.  I have earned the right so it is only fair that I get the opportunity to fight for the title.  Hopefully it i versus Morales but I will fight anybody.  If they put King Kong in there I will fight and beat him too," Olusegun told Boxingscene.com.
 
The 31 year old Olusegun finished up our conversation by issuing a challenge to Morales.  Olusegun had this message for the only 4 division champion in Mexico's history, "Erik Morales, you know I am coming for you.  You are the champion and I know you are a honorable man so fight me.  I am the mandatory challenger so you need to fight me.  That title is mine and I am coming to get it whether you like it or not."
