Most consider him the future of boxing. But it seems like he’s ready to claim the present of the sport in his name. Curmel Moton, the 17-year-old, up-and-coming boxer, touted as the next Floyd Mayweather, has announced the plans for his next stint in the ring.

In September last year, the boxer who trains under the tutelage of Mayweather made his pro-debut against 27-year-old Ezequiel Flores. He won the bout via a groundbreaking first-round knockout. Two months later, personifying the word, ‘unstoppable’, he faced off against another relatively older fighter, Hunter Turbyfill. Stopping that fight too in a first-round knockout, he has established his base in the boxing world. Months later, after a bit of teasing, he has finally announced the date of his next fight.

When is the next ‘big deal’?

30th March, as a date for his next fight, comes at an unexpected juncture. Prior to his announcement, speculations were rife that the young boxer would either be stacked on the undercard of the January 27 event featuring Jaime Munguia vs. John Ryder, or the next closest event, Teofimo Lopez vs. Jamaine Ortiz on February 8.

Currently, the only big event scheduled for March 30th is the PBC and Amazon Prime Video PPV debut event where Gervonta Davis has been rumored as the headliner. It is still unconfirmed if this is where Moton will make his ring walk for his third professional fight.
