David Morrell Sends His Prayers Out To Aidos Yerbossynuly


As news broke that WBA #1 super middleweight contender Aidos Yerbossynuly (16-1, 11KO) was placed in a medically induced coma on November 6 following his knockout loss to regular champion David Morrell, the boxing community gathered on social media to pay their respects. Most importantly, Morrell did not hesitate to send a message to his former opponent to let him know he is in his prayers!

On November 5, Yerbossynuly stepped up for his first crack at a world title. The 30 year-old Kazakh fighter climbed the rankings to secure a mandatory position with the WBA. Undefeated and hungry, he presented a tough test for the champion on paper. Morrell is a special talent and it was clear the assignment would be dangerous for the challenger.

Make no mistake, Yerbossynuly showed extreme heart over twelve rounds. However, he sustained substantial damage early-on. He received what looked like a broken nose by the first quarter of the fight. Additionally, his face was completely swollen by the middle rounds. This, a testament to the amount of head damage he endured.

Regardless, the challenger still presented enough problems to mount an offensive attack of his own and gain positive moments in the fight. This may have been why his trainer Kay Koroma nor referee Tony Weeks looked to attempt to stop the fight earlier. In hindsight, these two are receiving some criticism, but Yerbossynuly showed he was very lucid until he finally went down twice in the twelfth round.

After the second knockdown, Weeks promptly stopped the fight. The challenger rose to his feet, but could not gain his footing. Morrell immediately helped his opponent back to his corner and signaled for the doctor. This was the first indication, beyond his facial damage, that Yerbossynuly would be in need of medical treatment.

3kingsboxing.com would also like to keep Yerbossynuly in our prayers. We hope for a successful recovery and return to his loved ones.
