Trainer Eyes Canelo Showdown for Rising Star David Morrell After Agbeko Win!
Trainer Ronnie Shields has set his sights on a blockbuster showdown between David Morrell Jr and Canelo Alvarez, aiming for the undisputed super middleweight championship if a clash with David Benavidez doesn’t materialize. Shields believes Morrell’s exceptional talent warrants a shot at Canelo, viewing him as the perfect opponent for the boxing superstar.
Despite Morrell’s limited ten-fight career, his prowess in the ring has earned him recognition, with Shields advocating for two or three mandatory fights to set the stage for a potential Canelo matchup. The pursuit of a fight against Benavidez hit a roadblock, as Benavidez opted to face Demetrius Andrade instead of Morrell, leaving the Cuban talent eager for a significant challenge.
Morrell’s focus on facing Benavidez has been met with disappointment, but his recent performance against Sena Agbeko highlighted his dominance, securing a second-round stoppage on Showtime’s final broadcast after 37 years in boxing. Despite Agbeko’s efforts, Morrell, at 25 years old, showcased his prowess and left his mark in the ring.
While discussions about a potential clash with Canelo have surfaced, Morrell’s immediate aim has been redirecting Benavidez’s attention to the ring. His trainer’s aspirations for a Canelo showdown suggest an ambitious leap for Morrell’s career, highlighting the confidence in his abilities.
As the boxing world anticipates Morrell’s next move, the possibility of a Canelo matchup adds an intriguing dimension to his burgeoning career, offering a potential marquee moment for the young Cuban talent.
