Around the time many Haitian boxers occupied the top of their divisions a number of lesser known journeymen who hail from Haiti failed to get a breakthrough. Among them was Dieuly Aristilde (9-8-0) who has an unenvious record of 8 defeats for just 9 wins. The now 41 year old fighter is back and his aim is an upset over undefeated 26 year old James McKenzie Morrison.
On the paper this fight is a total mismatch designed simply to boost Morrison’s record. The Haiti-born fighter has not fought in 2 years whereas Morrisson (9-0-2) has four fights last year. Morrison also has a high percentage of wins by knock-out while Aristilde has a high percentage of loses by knock-out!
However, Aristilde does have 2 knock-outs on his record which suggests that the fight may not be without risk for the young Oklahoma fighter heavyweight fighter.
