FORMER WEST HAM TEAM MATES FEATURE AT THE EXCEL
Article posted on 20.06.2011
Top prospect Billy Morgan is promising a night to remember for West Ham ABC on July 9.
The famous amateur outfit has three old boys in action on Frank Warren's big card at the ExCeL Arena.
Kevin Mitchell headlines against unbeaten John Murray, live on Sky Sports 1HD, while Morgan is joined on the undercard by debutant Ediz Hussein.
"It will be quite a night for the east end," said Morgan, who has won three out of three since turning professional and is trained by Jimmy Tibbs.
"West Ham's a real traditional kind of place and everyone down there will be willing us to do well at the ExCeL.
"There's been a great production line of talent over the years, and I remember looking up to the likes of Kevin when I was a youngster.
"He might have had a blip against Michael Katsidis, but I'm sure he'll be back with a bang against Murray and do us all proud.
"And look out for Hussein as well because he's a dangerous fighter and he'll do well as a pro too."
Lightweight Morgan trains out of the same stable as Mitchell, and has won all three of his fights so far under Warren on points.
"It will be nice to get a knockout," he joked.
"But I'm still young and learning my trade and the power will come with time."
