WBAN Goes One on One with Casey Morton who just made her Pro debut!

(OCT 18)  On October 11, 2014, at the Red Lion Woodlake Hotel, in Sacramento, California, the sport welcomed in Carissa "Casey" Morton, who entered the pro ranks when she fought on the "Capital City Explosion" card, winning by a four round unanimous decision in  her debut against Blanca Reymundo.

About Casey....She is a native of Oahu, Hawaii and of Polynesian and Asian decent. In search of a better life she found a home in San
Francisco, California at the age of 19. Since being introduced to
boxing she aspired to be crowned World Champion. She had her first
amateur boxing match after two and a half months of training and has not skipped a beat in working towards her goal.

Often earning Fight of the Night and Fighter of the Night awards in
her bouts, Casey is notorious for her crowd-pleasing fighting style.

Her relentless work ethic and dedication to her dream has inspired the lives of many. Between strenuous training sessions you can find Casey supporting youth outreach organizations, motivationally speaking to groups and classes, or coaching. Assisting people of all walks of life and ages in reaching and attaining their goals.

Casey is a proud SNAC sponsored athlete. She is trained by Boxing
Coach Jairo Escobar, Strength Coach Michael Bazzel, and under the
management of Gary Sullenger. Sullenger also advises and coaches
Morton in the gym, fine tuning her skill set. As Morton describes, this is her "Dream Team". "I am blessed with amazing people
in my life and in my corner. My coaches, manager, and sponsor are phenomenal at what they do. First and foremost, they are good people that I trust my life with. This is of utmost importance in a business like boxing. All thanks and glory to God."

WBAN got an opportunity to talk with Casey after her recent win in her pro debut.

Sue TL Fox:  You were an amateur boxer with the Beautiful Brawlers, what made you decide to turn pro?

Casey Morton:  I trained out of Undisputed Boxing Gym and with team CYC in Concord when I was asked to participate in the exciting Beautiful Brawlers event.

Since the moment I began boxing my goals were in the professional
rankings. I also lacked a full time coach until the beginning of 2014.
I have been fortunate to properly develop my skill set through staying
active in National and International amateur tournaments.

Sue TL  Fox:   Did you have aspirations to go to the Olympics---and if you did what was the turn of events that persuaded you to enter the pro ranks?

Casey Morton:  I did not have any aspirations to go to the Olympics. It was not an option for women when I began boxing. My vision was set in stone on becoming a World Champion.

Sue TL Fox:   What is next on your agenda, do you have any near-future pro fights on the horizon?


Casey Morton: My team and I are anxiously awaiting the next opportunities in November and December of this year. We are hoping it will be in or near San Francisco. It meant so much that a tremendous amount of people made the drive to Sacramento in support of my debut. I would love for them to not have to travel so far to support my next fight.

Sue TL Fox:   How did you feel stepping into the ring for the first time as a pro?

Casey Morton: It was indescribable. The most exciting and exhilarating experience of my life. I planned to walk out composed and serious... I could not stop myself from jumping up and down, hi-fiving the crowd. Definitely the ultimate adrenaline rush!

WBAN would like to thank Casey for taking the time to be interviewed after her fight with Reymundo.  We wish her a long and successful professional boxing career.
