Money Powell IV looks to learn a few lessons after a layoff when he steps into the boxing ring Saturday night, almost one year to the day since his last fight. He’s fighting Fidel Monterrosa Munoz in a super middleweight bout at ‘A Night of Championship Boxing 10’ put on by Pulse Boxing at the Georgia International Convention Center in Atlanta.
“He’s a veteran, he has almost 70 fights…I’m actually happy that I’m fighting a guy like that because he may be able to even show me some things in the ring that I can use later on in my career.”
Powell heads into the fight with a record of 12-1, and while he is showing his more experienced opponent a lot of respect, he says there is only going to be one outcome, “100% I see myself winning, just like I do every single fight.” Showcasing the deadly combination of speed and power, Powell has been making a name for himself in the sport, with seven of his wins coming by knockout. He says he’s been focused on elevating all of his fundamentals.
“This camp has focused a lot on me just improving a lot of things that I already was good at trying to go from good to great. My jab, my speed, my reflexes, timing, just everything. My boxing IQ, all of that has just really helped me just get better.”
Powell says he’s also looking forward to the other fights on the card, saying many of the boxers are also good friends of his. “I’m looking forward to Saturday because I know it’s going to be a great show,” says Powell.
