Casey “LADY HAWAIIAN PUNCH” Morton gets one step closer to achieving her goal!

On March 25 at the Okada Manila Hotel and Casino in Paranaque City, Philippines, Prince Ranch Boxing’s female flyweight Casey “Lady Hawaiian Punch” Morton (8-1-3, 1KO), retained her WBO Asia Pacific title with a split decision victory over Japan’s Chie Higano (8-8-1, 2KO). Scorecards read 94-96 for Higano and 97-93, 96-94 for Morton.

“I felt good to come back down to flyweight.

“I feel this is the weight where I can make my run toward a world title. Higano was a very tough opponent and I have a lot of respect for her. It’s very difficult to get a win overseas but I was able to do it. Now my goal is to capture the WBO world title. I’m hoping to get my shot by the end of the year.”

Morton, who is trained by Nonito Donaire Sr, feels she has the perfect team in place to take her career to the next level.

“With Nonito Donaire Sr. as my coach, I feel he’s the right person to make me into a world champion as a trainer.

“In addition, my manager Greg Hannley is providing everything I need for these big fights, as well as Victor Conte who has my back every step of the way. The team I have in place now is the best in boxing and I’m grateful for all their support. Together we will go to the top.”
