David Benavidez & Morrell Jr Agreed For Oct/Nov On Showtime PPV


Promoter Sampson Lewkowicz reviews that undefeated David Benavidez (27-0, 23 KOs) and WBA ‘common’ tremendous middleweight champion David Morrell Jr (9-0, 8 KOs) have agreed to a battle for October or November.

Benavidez is displaying a whole lot of braveness in taking this battle towards Morrell as a result of it’s a bad-style match-up for him, and he’s acquired quite a bit to lose if he will get crushed.

It’s good that Benavidez has determined to battle the gifted 25-year-old Morrell Jr after speaking up a battle with him months in the past, he went quiet after the previous Cuban novice star destroyed Yamaguchi Falcao in a primary spherical knockout on April twenty second.

It was the mix of Benavidez wanting poor towards the sunshine hitting Caleb Plant and Morrell Jr’s first spherical destruction of Falco appeared to trigger the ‘Mexican Monster’ to clam up, not speaking and seeming to understand what he might probably lose out on if he have been to be obliterated in the identical method.

On paper, it is a nightmarish opponent for Benavidez as a result of Morrell Jr is a a lot stronger, extra athletic, and equally technical fighter as Caleb Plant. Benavidez had all he might deal with from Plant for seven rounds final March, and he’s fortunate the Tennessee native gassed out within the second half as a result of h would have misplaced that battle.

“It’s a battle we would like,” stated David Morrell Jr’s co-promoter Leon Margules of Warriors Boxing to Combat Freaks Unite concerning the Benavidez battle.

“We’ve an settlement. That is the plan,” Sampson Lewkowicz stated concerning the Morrell Jr vs. Benavidez battle. “We’re with the identical community. It will likely be extra aggressive than it will be with Canelo Alvarez.

“I consider Canelo wouldn’t go previous six rounds with Benavidez and Morrell. It’s an excellent battle for the general public.”

Hopefully, Lewkowicz is aware of what he’s getting Benavidez into by matching him towards Morrell Jr as a result of this isn’t Caleb Plant or David Lemieux that he’s going up towards.

“The winner could be subsequent in line to battle Canelo. I’m the true monster, and I’m able to show it within the ring,” stated Morrell.

A loss right here for Benavidez will carry him again to sq. one, leaving him ready the place he can be toiling away in obscurity as soon as once more.

If Benavidez strikes as much as 175, the place he arguably must be combating given his huge body, he might wind up getting schooled by WBA mild heavyweight champion Dmitry Bivol in the identical vogue as Gilberto Ramirez.

The battle that Benavidez has been pining away for towards Canelo since 2017 shall be gone without end if he loses to Morrell. As an alternative, it’ll be Morrell that winds up dealing with Canelo and until he, too is averted by the Mexican as he’s finished with Benavidez for the final 5 years.
