David Morrell Jr. Knockouts Mario Cázares in 1st Round
Undefeated WBA Super Middleweight Champion David Morrell Jr. (5-0, 4 KOs) defeated challenger Mario Cázares (12-1, 5 KOs) with a knockout in the first round of their fight in Minneapolis last night.
“I didn’t expect that to end so quickly,” said Morrell. “I thought it would be more like a five or six-round fight.” However, once Cazares stepped in the ring, I noticed that he was not ready to fight on my level. He wasn’t ready for this kind of test or this level of fight.”
When asked about knocking out at the 2:32 mark of the first round, Morrell said, “When I saw the opening, I took him out. When I hit him, I saw his legs wobble and I knew he was gone, completely out.”
“I’m ready for anyone at 168 pounds and now the world can see it,” continued Morrell. “I would love to fight Caleb Plant. I’m ready to fight Plant. He’s an excellent boxer, but I’m ready to go.”
