On February 18, Kendal Morris will return to the Fight For It Cage for the first time since 2019. This time, he’ll be doing it as a professional fighter, kicking off a career with the momentum of a first-round TKO over Josh Hoffman at Titans of the Cage 32 in November.
It will be a good opportunity for Morris to show his growth as a fighter since suffering losses at the hands of Zachary Faulkner and Trukon Carson at Fight For It VII and III, respectively. Stepping into the professional welterweight ranks, look for Morris to lean into the strengths he’s displayed in his amateur career — namely, the vicious striking game that has earned him the four TKO victories in his 4-3 amateur record.
As Morris looks to build momentum in his professional debut, Ernest Robinson will be looking to kick off his own career, and turn around a three-fight skid that marked the last bouts of his amateur career between 2018 and 2020. Indeed, Robinson hasn’t fought under the bright lights since that 2020 split-decision loss to Spencer Deegan at KOTC: Fists N Fury. One should assume he’s been doing his share of woodshedding since then, sharpening his tools for a big comeback in his first outing as a pro.
As these men step into the cage for the first time as professionals, all slates are wiped clean. The amateur records offer an indication of where they’ve been, but at Fight For It XIV, Kendal Morris and Ernest Robinson are going to show us where they’re headed.
Combat sports action returns to the Downtown Spartanburg Marriott in Spartanburg, SC when Fight For It XIV kicks off on Saturday, February 18. Catch every bout live in-person, or via pay-per-view, with tickets available now at fightforitcompany.com.
