About Bowyn Morgan
Bowyn Morgan is now ranked 15th in the IBF. This is the first time that Morgan has received a world ranking in any major boxing sanctioning body. It is also the first time that any New Zealand boxer has been ranked in the welterweight division in the IBF.
This is a long time coming for Morgan as he has had a long and successful career. The Christchurch-based fighter is ranked in the top 100 on Boxrec, his record in 21 Wins 1 lose no draws, He holds three New Zealand titles in two different divisions, as well as two different IBO regional titles and a minor world title. There were two things missing from his career, a major regional title and a top 15 ranking in a major boxing body.
The current IBF World Welterweight champion is Errol Spence Jr. It is entirely possible but unlikely Errol Spence Jr, will choose Morgan as a challenger as first and foremost he faces mandatory challenges for his current IBF and WBC world titles.
A rare occurrence of a world champion choosing an opponent ranked similar relates to Joseph Parker in 2017. The initial challenger was Hughie Fury, but due to Fury’s back injury, Parker had to pick someone else as his volunteer defence, this resulted in new opponent Razvan Cojanu who was ranked 14th in the WBO at the time.
Morgan is scheduled to face Japanese American Charles Bellamy in Christchurch, New Zealand at the historical Wilding Park. This will be for the vacant IBF Pan Pacific Welterweight title. If Morgan wins he will get a big boost in the IBF rankings which will get him one step closer to a world title fight.
In 1903 Parliament formed and passed the Boxing and Wrestling Act to cover the facets and the issuing of a Police boxing permit. The act and regulations have been slightly amended over the years. The latest amendment was 1984, because only boxing and wrestling is named in the current act and regulations, is why all the other combat sports do not have to apply for Police permits or restricted by anything else such that is required for current day boxers.
In 2018, Pro Box NZ created a new title for the pacific region called the Pro Box Pacific title, with the first bout happening on 4 May 2018 with Bowyn Morgan taking on Andres Delfin Rodriguez. PBCNZ tried to replicate the idea, however the original bout scheduled on 19 May 2018, between Sam Rapira and Abhay Chand did not happen due to Abhay Chand pulling out. Sam Rapira ended up fighting Ratu Dawai instead for the PBCNZ National Titles.
Bowyn Morgan next fight will be held on December 16, 2020 against Tim Tszyu.
The last fight of Bowyn Morgan took place on October 19, 2019 against Nelson Tinampay. Morgan won by technical knockout.
A pro debut
A 25-year-old Morgan made his professional debut on December 5, 2014 against Martin Mech. Bowyn won by technical knockout. With a new belt around his waist and another knockout on his record, you would expect Bowyn Morgan to be celebrating hard. Hooking into fatty and sugar-filled cuisine and washing it down with celebratory drinks – all luxuries that have been off the menu for months.
