Sena Agbeko Will Face David Morrell Jr. To Defend The WBA “Regular” Super Middleweight World Title.

David Morrell is driven to make an impression as the main event's headliner

MINNEAPOLIS — On Saturday, December 16 at The Armory in Minneapolis, Minnesota, Sena Agbeko of Ghana will take on Cuban David Morrell. The two fight in the main event, which lasts 12 rounds.


Morell (9-0, 8 KOs) is attempting to defend his WBA “Regular” 168-pound title for the sixth time. The 25-year-old, who is undefeated, stopped Yamaguchi Falcao in the opening round of their April fight in Las Vegas. Agbeko, who lacked an NSAC license, was replaced by the latter. He is intent on achieving his goal of a knockout, but he is also looking forward to facing David Benavidez, the interim WBC champion.


“This is a great opportunity to headline the last fight on Showtime. I was ready for him in April and I’m ready for him now. I’ll show him and anyone who doubts me. It’s going to be worse for him now. I’m better now than if we had fought in April. I’m taking him right out now,” said Morell in media reports.


“I’m really just focused on Agbeko. My body and my mental are 100%. I’m not thinking about David Benavidez right now. I’ll come for him after Agbeko. I’m taking this guy out first,” he added.


“I feel great to have this opportunity. My family is coming here to watch me for the first time. This is my time and this is my moment. I want everything,” he continued.


In October, Agbeko (28-2, 22 KOs) stopped Bruno Leonardo Romay in the second round of competition. The 31-year-old Ghanaian native is aiming to win six in a row and attempts to win the title of champion for the first time.


“I’ve always had the mindset that I want to be the top guy at super middleweight. I want to face the best. That’s what I’ve wanted since the beginning,” said Sena Agbeko in media reports. 


“This will be the culmination of everything I’ve ever dreamed of. It’s been a long 12 years. I’ve trained the whole time like I’m fighting for a world title. To win this fight Saturday night will mean everything to me. I want to add my name to a long line of Ghanaian champions,” he added.
