David Morrell Downplays Benavidez vs Andrade Showdown

WBA Regular super middleweight champion David Morrell (9-0, 8KO) is not happy about being left out of the super middleweight mega-fight picture. Currently, the media tour is in full swing for the showdown between two-time champion David “The Mexican Monster” Benavidez (27-0, 23KO) and two-divisional champion Demetrius “Boo Boo” Andrade (32-0, 19KO).

After the press conference for Benavidez versus Andrade, the talented Cuban took to social media, claiming the upcoming fight is a joke and that he is the best fighter of the division.

Morrell is viewed as an extremely high-risk champion that no one is rushing to fight. With a ton of experience on the amateur circuit, he was unsurprisingly fast-tracked at the professional ranks.

Part of the reason why Morrell is a little frustrated is that he has been chasing a fight with Benavidez. In addition, he believed they were going to fight as rumors were spreading of a possible showdown this year.

In his last outing, the WBA Regular champion made quick work of Yamaguchi Falcao with an impressive first-round stoppage.

The winner of Benavidez versus Andrade will look to fight undisputed champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez. Morrell should move in the direction of top contenders Christian Mbilli and Erik Bazinyan.
