  • Background: Morrell, the gifted product of the Cuban amateur system, has been pushing for a showdown with fellow contender David Benavidez and other big-time fights. And those events will come if he continues to dominate opponents. The 25-year-old southpaw has knocked out eight of his nine foes – including Yamaguchi Falcao in the first round in April – and has barely lost a round in his fast-tracked professional career. He’s a significant favorite to beat Agbeko. The 31-year-old Ghanaian has won five consecutive fights (four by knockout) since he lost a near-shutout decision against Vladimir Shishkin in 2021. His most recent fight was on Oct. 14, when he stopped journeyman Bruno Leonardo Romay in two rounds. However, Morrell is a significant step up in opposition for him. Agbeko lives in Nashville.
