David Morrell Wants To Make A Name For Himself In Super Middleweight Division
Morrell defends his WBA regular super middleweight title this Saturday.
David Morrell just wants to show who he is.
That’s what the WBA (regular) super middleweight champion told FIGHT SPORTS ahead of his fight this Saturday against Kazakhstan’s Aidos Yerbossynuly.
“I’m ready for everyone in 168,” Morrell added. “I want to everyone to see me.”
Morrell, of Cuba, is undefeated so far in all of his seven pro fights. He has won six of them by knockout and just one by decision.
In his last outing, he technically knocked out Kalvin Henderson in the fourth-round of a scheduled 12-round bout in Minnesota – which is where he’s had his last three fights.
As for his next opponent, Yerbossynuly, who is 16-0 with 11 knockouts, he gave him his credit.
“He’s a good boxer [and] has a good record,” Morrell said.
Yerbossynuly has mainly fought overseas and has not competed in the U.S. since 2017 when he defeated Riarus Dudley and Devin Butcher by TKO and a unanimous decision, respectively.
Morrell added that he has been preparing for the upcoming bout for the last three months and has been studying Yerbossynuly. He said he saw that he was overeager, at some points, in his last fight, but has been working on that as well.
The final press conference for Morrell-Yerbossynuly kicks off tomorrow at 1 p.m. CT and will be streamed on the SHOWTIME Sports YouTube and Facebook pages. The final weigh-in also takes place at 1 p.m. CT and will be streamed on the same platforms.
