He’s been a rugby player, a kickboxer, a politician, and a reality show contestant. Romanian star Catalin Morosanu has accomplished a lot during his career. Now, you can add promoter to the list. Morosanu is promoting the big Dynamite Fighting Show event to be held Thursday in Bucharest, Romania. Romanian newspaper Gazeta Sporturilor spoke to the hard-hitting heavyweight, who will battle France’s Freddy Kemayo in the main event. The charismatic Morosanu gave updates on the show, his career plans, and had a message for Kemayo.
Morosanu, 34, said he thinks he will retire in early 2020. He had his first Local Kombat fight around 2006. A reason for holding the event in Romania is that he wanted big fights to come back to Romania. Kemayo has a previous stoppage win over Morosanu, and Morosanu won the second fight between them on points. Thursday’s fight will be a tiebreaker. Morosanu is expecting a tough fight-Kemayo is taller and has been more active and Morosanu hasn’t fought since last August. Morosanu said he missed fighting at home in Romania, as in recent years he has fought in Spain, the United States, Russia, the Czech Republic, and Italy. If I’m not mistaken, it’s been 2-3 years since he last fought in his country.
He was asked what he would be if he didn’t succeed as a fighter, and Morosanu said he would most likely have entered the police force. He was preparing for the Police Academy as a teenager but he was injured. He soon took up kickboxing, and he ended up on the path to being a fighter which he did not expect.
Morosanu promised to give a good fight, and vowed to punish Freddie because Kemayo “spoke ugly” in an interview. Morosanu said he is happy with what he has accomplished in his career-fighting around the world and bringing joy to his fans.
