Aarron ‘The Marksman’ Morgan [11(8)-0] is aiming to prove that he is one of the best light middleweights in Britain.

The Londoner of Dublin descent hopes that a big domestic clash is on the horizon and wants “the opportunity to prove or disprove it.”

The Newham 154lber spoke to Irish-Boxing.com ahead of his fight on Saturday night and described how he is looking “I’m looking to do a demolition job on him and then hopefully my phone will ring to fight one of the top domestic fighters.”

“I feel I am one of the best fighters in the 11st division from these shores. There’s some wars to be had – I can smell them!”

The man in the opposite corner for the six-round bout this weekend is high-level Hungarian journeyman/gatekeeper Laszlo Fazekas [30(18)-25(3)-1]. Morgan has done his homework and detailed how “I have had a look at him and he looks clever and durable. He has only been stopped three times in almost 60 contests so that shows the mark of the man.”

“He has 30 wins with 18 via KO so I’m assuming he can dig a bit. He went the distance with Paulie Malignaggi recently as well which shows he has mixed in good class.”

The 28 year old explained how “my boxing style is a throwback to the fighters I love. The Haglers, the Chavezs, Wilfredo Gomez, Larry Holmes, Evander Holyfield – fighters that could do it all. Box, bang, and, when need be, brawl with the best of them.”

“As an amateur I felt I always had a pro style! Now I know that is an extremely cliché saying, but it was true.”

“I never entered a contest to win via computer scoring. I hit to hurt and finish a contest myself.”

“I had a trial with the GB team and made it through to the advanced stage of selection. Unfortunately I was unsuccessful in getting on the squad. It was then I decided to realise a dream and box as a professional.”

“So far in a competitive ring I haven’t had to use all my attributes as a professional, but I am relishing the chance to mix with an opponent that can bring things out of me.”
