The Ghanian was knocked out in the second round as Morrell took his record to 10-0, with nine KOs. The boxers were in talks to fight in Las Vegas, where there would have been drug testing. The fight went ahead in Minnesota instead, without any drug testing. This concerned Agbeko since they agreed to undertake WADA testing, particularly since Morrell was knocking out most of his opponents.
“There was no testing by the Commission before or after the fight. They explicitly stated that the Commission wasn’t required to do the testing, and they chose not to do any testing for this fight. I think there’s something up in that regard.
“You make me sign a contract for WADA testing, and then there’s no testing whatsoever. So, it feels like it was a setup. Absolutely, 100%, I think he’s on something because in the fight in April [against Yamaguchi Falcao], we saw a lot of acne on his face and on his back, and I definitely think he’s on something,” Agbeko stated
If Morrell wants to secure a lucrative fight with Benavidez, then VADA testing will likely be implemented. The Mexican Monster underwent VADA testing for his last fight with Demetrius Andrade and stopped the two-weight world champion after round six. So, to get those fights, Morrell must do the same to avoid questions over his wins.
