John Morrison will enter the boxing ring on April 15 at Creator Clash when he takes on Harley Morenstein of Epic Meal Time fame.
Creator Clash pits content creators against each other in boxing bouts and Morrison's clash with Morenstein will mark his boxing debut.
Speaking to Jeremy Lambert and Stephen Jensen on The Spotlight, Morrison explained how the fight came together.
"It is kind of hard to find an opponent for Harley. I met iDubbbz and everyone at Creator Clash 1 when I was in Dad's corner, and it was so electric and I was so pumped up that I think everyone could tell I was excited about boxing and the event. I got a call from Ian and Anisa, basically, a little while ago, and they asked me if I would consider fighting and I said, 'Yeah,' and then they asked if I would consider fighting Harley. I only know two people closely, him and [Dad]. I would rather fight someone who is not my friend. Then, he took the fight. They texted me back and said, 'Harley said he would fight you.' I was like, 'I guess I'll fight him.' Then, I thought about it, and realized that in the world of pro wrestling, I don't hit anyone harder than I hit my friends. I've knocked Sheamus' teeth out before, and we laughed about it the next day. When I started thinking of it along those lines, okay, we're just going to punch each other until one of us can't stand up anymore, and I hope he's still my friend after that," said Morrison.
Morrison has been training with Dad, who is also on the card and holds the record for fastest KO in Creator Clash history, and Josh Barnett for the fight.
Before he heads to Creator Clash to fight Harley, Morrison will compete at Josh Barnett's Bloodsport during WrestleMania weekend.
