David Morrell vs Aidos Yerbossynuly Fight Preview
In this fight, undefeated Kazakh Yerbossynuly (16-0, 11 KOs) will face undefeated American champion Scott Morrell (7-0, 6 KOs) for the WBA 168-pound championship.
Morrell, a 24-year-old southpaw from Cuba, had a 130-2 record in amateur boxing before becoming a pro and going to Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA.
Morrell has defeated professionals like Kalvin Henderson, Alantez Fox, Mario Abel Cazares, and Mike Gavronski. How Morrell handles the undefeated, heavy-handed Yerbossynuly will be fascinating to see.
If Morrell prevails, the fight with WBC super middleweight champion David Benavidez, who has never been defeated, is scheduled for the first quarter of 2023.
Recently, Benavidez’s promoter Sampson Lewkowicz stated that he intends to schedule a bout between Benavidez and Morrell in the first quarter of 2019. Yerbossynuly won’t be quiet about it; he has no plans to lose to Morrell this Saturday.
Yerbossynuly, 30, knocked out Lennox Allen in the 10th round in his last bout in September of last year, making him a familiar opponent with Morrell. Because of his long layoff from boxing (14 months), he may be suffering from ring rust.
Compared to Yerbossynuly, Morrell is a more athletic and skilled fighter, with faster hands and more effective combinations. Yerbossynuly, on the other hand, has a significant edge in punching power.
Unless Yerbossynuly connects with one of his big blows and hurts Morrell, this bout has a good chance of being a mismatch.
Middleweight contenders Jeison Rosario (23-3-1, 17 KOs) and Brian Mendoza (20-2, 14 KOs) square off in a 10-round contest that serves as the co-main event.
As a result of Erickson Lubin and Jermell Charlo being knocked out in consecutive fights, Rosario, at 27 years old, has won his past three bouts.
Earlier on SHOWTIME, undefeated middleweight Fiodor Czerkaszyn (20-0, 13 KOs) faced up against veteran Nathaniel Gallimore (22-5-1, 17 KOs) in the opening bout of the night.
Boxer-puncher Morrell, who was groomed in the Cuban amateur system, has made quite an impression in his first seven professional bouts since defecting to the United States. The Minneapolis native has won four fights in a row with knockouts, most recently in June against Kalvin Henderson in the fourth round. He is second only to Canelo Alvarez in the WBA rankings, behind the champion. In comparison to Morrell, Yerbossnynuly is a close second.
According to the results of Yerbossnynuly’s most recent bout against Lennox Allen in Las Vegas, the Kazakh is a competent technician with big hands. Thirteen months ago, the American was disabled in Kazakhstan in the tenth of twelve rounds. In his third bout, Morrell faced Allen and won a unanimous decision after 12 rounds to claim the “interim” WBA championship.
