This guys is part of the David vs. Goliath equation EVERY time he fights…
In the world of fighting, size is often perceived to be everything. To a certain extent, sheer brute strength and size can be a big advantage, but there’s a lot to be said for technique and skill.
When talking about combat sports, everybody loves a good David vs. Goliath fight. The Japanese in particular go crazy for a ‘freak show.’ The most watched fight in Japanese history is actually Bob Sapp vs. Akebono, which is saying something about their love for freaky fights.
Today’s article is about a guy who is literally tiny for heavyweight.
Meet Catalin Morosanu, a Romanian heavyweight kickboxer who stands at just six feet tall. Although this might not sound tiny, in the modern kickboxing game it really is. Weighing in just over the minimum heavyweight limit, Morosanu has made a name fighting giants all over the world.
Bearing in mind he is the smaller opponent in pretty much all his fights, Morosanu’s record of 42-10 with 25 knockouts is actually quite impressive.
Let’s Watch Him Fight
Paying a tribute to ‘The Carpathian Death’ Catalin Morosanu, we’ve compiled some of his best efforts against the biggest and scariest opponents during his 10-year career.

Here’s Catalin in quite a strange bout, again against a much taller fighter. Maurice Jackson weighs 22KG more than Catalin, and is a staggering 25cm taller too. Here’s what happened when they fought:
Finally, check out this bout against a pretty scary looking viking dude. Morosanu again overcomes a huge weight disadvantage for a monstrous first round knockout win.
