On the undercard of the Premier Boxing Champions, David Benavidez-Demetrius Andrade event that will be airing live on Showtime pay-per-view, 17-year-old Mayweather Promotions prodigy Curmel Moton is ready to make his return to the ring as he will face Hunter Turbyfill (3-0, 1 KO) in a scheduled 4-round bout.

Set to take place on Saturday night, November 25th, at the Michelob Ultra Arena at Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, Curmel Moton will step inside the squared circle for the second time as a pro. On September 30, 2023, the highly touted boxing prospect made a brief but extremely impressive debut.

Curmel Moton started taking boxing seriously at the youthful age of six. He would go on to compete as an amateur and become an 18-time national champion. Recently, Moton made the decision to bypass a shot at the Olympics in order to start and focus on his career as a professional boxer.

The featherweight prospect is a young fighter who has all the tools. Moton is fundamentally sound; he has the speed, good reflexes, punching power, and despite his youthful age, he has a high ring IQ.

Moton also has the confidence, as prior to his pro debut, he stated his belief in regards to him being the best at 126.

His mentor, Hall of Fame boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr, agrees with his fighter as it relates to Moton being the best in the featherweight division, and Mayweather’s actions spoke louder than words.

Mayweather made an attempt to make Moton’s boxing debut a historical one when he called out a world champion.

During an August interview with Fighthype, Mayweather stated that a bout between his fighter Curmel Moton and WBA featherweight world champion Leigh Wood would be a good matchup right now. Mayweather was willing to endorse the high-risk, high-reward debut bout, but unfortunately, it didn’t happen.

Instead of a historical debut, Curmel Moton had to settle for a debut against the previously undefeated Ezequiel Flores. In the opening round of the bout, Moton scored a knockdown, and Flores was able to get up, but when the match continued, Moton threw a thirty-punch flurry, which forced the referee to step in and stop the contest.

Now Curmel Moton (1-0, 1 KO) is days away from continuing his boxing journey, and he will do it against another undefeated fighter. His opponent, Hunter Turbyfill, is a 28-year-old prospect from Memphis, Tennessee.

The last time Turbyfill competed inside the squared circle was back in August when he scored a unanimous decision victory over Nehemias Cruzz. Now, in his fourth fight as a pro, Turbyfill has a chance to put his name in the headlines if he can score the upset victory over a decorated prospect.

Curmel Moton is about to participate in his second bout as a pro despite the fact that he’s still not legally classified as an adult. However, he is mature beyond his years, and he’s focused on stepping in the ring on Saturday night and collecting win number two.
