David Morrell Stops Sena Agbeko In Round Two

David Morrell Jr. stopped Sena Agbeko in Showtime’s final boxing broadcast with a second-round knockout.

The Cuban arrived in the fight with many expectations, given his desire to fight David Benavidez. Morrell did not disappoint on the biggest stage by stopping Agbeko, who is also known for being a KO artist. The Ghanaian entered the fight with 28 wins and 22 by knockout. Morrell had too much power for his opponent. He had Agbeko on the ropes and landed a left hand to sting him. That was followed up by a series of right and left hands as the referee stopped the fight. After the fight, Morrell called out Benavidez.

“Thank you to my fans for coming to the fight,” Morrell said. “Teaching everyone who is the number one. I’m ready. I tell everybody my team, my family…I’m looking forward to next year. For now, I feel happy. Right now, I’m going to go my house for Christmas and focus on next year.

“Everybody came for my fight, I’m so excited. The first time my dad and my mom came to watch me fight, so I’m really excited to have them here… [And] it’s my night. It’s my time. It’s my year, and I’m looking forward to a good 2024. In 2024, I want to fight Benavidez. One hundred percent,” Morrell said

In chief support, Jose Valenzuela stopped Chris Colbert in round six to gain revenge after losing their first fight. Valenzuela was on the front foot immediately, battering his opponent on the ropes as Colbert hit the canvas in round one.

The pressure continued as Colbert had no answer to the increased output and pressure from Valenzuela. The latter then delivered the final blow. As Colbert was moving on the back foot, Valenzuela delivered a huge right hook to finish the fight in a highlight knockout. In the aftermath, Valenzuela called out Gervonta Davis.

“Everything happens for a reason. I got to thank God. I was patient for a reason. But you know, I beat him twice now. This was a title eliminator and I want to fight for the title. So, Tank Davis let’s get it on man. Let’s give these people a great show,” Valenzuela said
