Morales vs Garcia: Ajose Olusegun Will Be Ringside Waiting For Winner

Ajose Olusegun is waiting on the winner of Saturday's Morales vs Garcia fight, and he'll be ringside to make his presence known.

Ajose Olusegun will be ringside on Saturday night in Houston, scouting his promised next opponent in the Erik Morales vs Danny Garcia main event. Morales' WBC junior welterweight title is on the line, and Olusegun has been guaranteed a shot at the title next by Jose Sulaiman of the WBC.

"My presence will be felt in Houston as I will be sitting ringside awaiting the winner of Morales vs Garcia," said Olusegun in a press release.

"My plane touches down later tonight and I will be at tomorrow's weigh-in as well, sizing up both of my potential opponents. I'm a hungry fighter that can't be denied. I can't wait to see who I'll be facing next. My dream of becoming a world champion will be a reality in the near future. "

Olusegun (30-0, 14 KO) has been waiting on his title shot since beating Ali Chebah in an eliminator last September, part of that mess the WBC made with the division in order to gift-wrap the title for Morales. When the WBC stripped Timothy Bradley of his title, which was bogus to begin with, Morales' September 17 fight with Lucas Matthysse was approved as a vacant title fight. That changed to Morales vs Jorge Barrios, which the WBC ridiculously approved, and finally wound up being Morales vs Pablo Cano.

In the end, we got a good fight, and now Morales is facing a tough contender. But Olusegun deserves his shot. He's done what was asked of him and waited for his chance. Hopefully he doesn't do anything too outrageous, though, like curse or make a scene, because then the WBC would probably forbid him from being in their rankings. If he'd like to commit some crimes or go to jail, though, that would be OK.
