TWO CHAMPIONS collided at Bishop Ford High School Friday night in a Daily News Golden Gloves clash of titans.
Unfortunately, it was déjà vu for Roberto Morban (Fort Apache BC) when he and Iegor Plevako (Win or Die BC) bumped heads in the quarterfinals in Brooklyn. Morban, the 2010 Gloves champion, was dethroned in the 2011 quarterfinal by Plevako, who later replaced Morban as the super heavyweight king. Trying to return the favor on Friday, Morban had no answers for Plevako, who won by a 5-0 decision.
“Morban is good,” said Plevako, the P.C. Richard & Son Boxer of the Night. “He’s a great boxer (and) I respect him very much. But I’m better.”
