The little guy who lost his ass in the bagel store in New York last week is taking advantage of his viral fame … by entering the ring and beating the shit against other "stars".
Chris Morgan just inked an agreement on Monday with the combat promoter Damon Feldman – who arranged for Chris to put on boxing gloves and face someone later this year in Atlantic City. We took him out with his new crew … and he seemed rather excited.
Not as inflamed as he was in Bagel Boss, of course, but still delighted. Chris tells us that he is ready to face anyone foolish enough to face him … and that it requires minimal training.
He may want to rethink that, since he was driven by a much larger guy in the store. If his opponent is even a few inches higher than him, Chris may have difficulty.
Regarding the fight itself, we are told that the fight is currently being held for September 7th at the Showboat Hotel. And, even if no final opponent is still immutable, he could face an equally viral person – Antoine Dodson (the type "hide the children, hide the woman").
Damon says that Antoine is currently on the same card as Chris – so it's possible that they find themselves face to face. On the financial side, we are told that Chris is doing 5 to 6 numbers … based on ticket sales and online feeds.
BTW … Chris gave us a glimpse of how he plans to win a W in September. It looks like he's going to channel his inner demon and let the claws fly !!!
