BATB IV Champion: Morgan Smith!

Monday, July 4th, 2011

After Canadian flatground connoisseur (and Concrete #106 cover guy/feature interview subject and commercial lead) Morgan Smith took out Mike Mo Capaldi in the Final Four of the Battle At The Berrics 4, he had to face a tough opponent for the Final roshambo. Boston’s PJ Ladd was ready, but Morgan had a couple advantages: he was favoured to win by notables in the crowd, and this battle actually took place on Canada Day, as host Rob Dyrdek pointed out. Ref’d by Koston and Berra, it was on…

But who emerged victorious? Yeah, that’s right… Click the image below to watch Morgan sweep a formidable U.S.-born flatground adversary in a Final that was presented to the web-masses today, on the 4th of July. Congrats, Morg!!!

Morgan Smith – the last Canadian hopeful in the “U.S. vs Them” format of the fourth Battle At The Berrics – followed up his win in a solid round against Alex Mizurov by taking on Rodrigo TX this past Saturday. We’re all familiar with Rodrigo’s consistent and heavily popped flatground game and so was Morgan, who once again built on his steady momentum at the LA indoor.

On Sunday, April 3rd, Reda was hoping to see a sweep of all Canadians in Battle At The Berrics 4. After Mark Appleyard and Wade Desarmo got taken out in Round 1 by Koston and Busenitz respectively, Morgan Smith was our last hope (and I’ve had my money on him since the beginning).
