David Benavidez And David Morrell Jr. Reach An Agreement To Fight

David Benavidez and David Morrell Jr. have reached an agreement in principle to fight in October/November. 

That is according to Benavidez’s promoter Sampson Lewkowicz. The two heavy-hitters are being lined up to face each other, as a fight with the undisputed super-middleweight champion Canelo Alvarez appears out of reach. 

But with Benavidez and Morrell Jr, boxing fans are in for a treat. Morell (9-0, 8 KOs) is the current WBA ‘regular’ champion, having knocked out eight of his nine opponents so far.

And in his last fight, Morrell Jr. blew away Yamaguchi Falcao with a first-round knockout. 

Meanwhile, Benavidez is coming off the best win of his career, beating Caleb Plant via a unanimous decision, to retain his WBC interim title. 

And the winner of this potential bout could take the mantle away from Canelo, as the latter’s form has not been the same since his loss to Dmitry Bivol.

And by the looks of it, both fighters are ready to put on a show. 

“We have an agreement. This is the plan. We are with the same network. It’s easy to get an agreement. I strongly believe it will be more competitive than it would be with Canelo Alvarez.

“I believe Canelo wouldn’t go past six rounds with Benavidez, and with Morrell,” Sampson Lewkowicz told Dan Rafael’s on Fight Freaks Unite
