David Morrell recently defeated Mario Cazares in a fight to win the WBA Super Middleweight World Championship.

The victory and a new championship allowed him to go on Canelo López as the required challenger. The WBA Super, WBC, and WBO titles are currently held by Canelo, who will eventually have to defend them against Morrell.

In an interview with ESNEWS, Morrell’s trainer, Ronnie Shields, discussed his fighter’s future and the possibility of facing Canelo. Shields sees this as a fantastic chance and thinks Morrell is ready for the battle. According to Shields, Morrell has reportedly evolved into Canelo’s “hitman” in the WBA.

Morrell has dazzled spectators with his speed, power, and accuracy in the ring while holding the WBA title and sporting an undefeated record of 5-0 with four knockouts. He has demonstrated that, despite his brief career, he can win the global championship.

Canelo matchup: Is the Cuban boxer prepared?

On the opposite end of the spectrum, Canelo has a record of 56-1-2 with 38 knockouts and is regarded as one of the finest boxers in the world, pound-for-pound. Gennady Golovkin, Sergey Kovalev, and Billy Joe Saunders are just a few of the top fighters he has defeated.

Although a date for Canelo and Morrell’s bout has yet to be set, it is anticipated to happen soon. The IBF Super Middleweight World Champion Caleb Plant will be Canelo’s opponent in a unification fight in September, and if Canelo wins, Morrell will be his obligatory opponent.

The chance to compete against Canelo is a fantastic opportunity for Morrell to demonstrate his prowess against one of the top fighters in the world. Morrell has only been a professional boxer for two years but has already shown the ability to win a world championship.
