HOUSTON, TX – Undefeated super middleweight, David Morrell Jr. (6-0, 5 KOs) has fired back at David Benavidez (26-0, 23 KOs) over his comments that followed after his fight with David Lemieux this past Saturday on Showtime. Benavidez referenced Morrell Jr., Caleb Plant and Jermall Charlo as bitches, and vowed that he would knock everyone out.
“I ain’t no bitch and you’re going to find out,” stated Morrell, who holds the WBA's "regular" title at 168-pounds. “I’m from Cuba and I’m not afraid to fight you. I've beaten bigger and better fighters than you. So right after this fight I got coming up, get your ass ready.”
Benavidez and Morrell are both handled by Premier Boxing Champions. Morrell is scheduled to put his WBA title on the line in a 12-round bout against Kalvin Henderson (15-1-1, 11 KOs), live on Showtime, next Saturday night, June 4th.
“I have business to handle of June 4th against Henderson, a fight I’m taking very seriously,” concluded Morrell. “After that, I’m on the hunt for Benavidez’ head. There is no bitch in me, after my fight, I’m gonna make you my bitch. No need to talk no more I’m gonna show you better than I can tell you...see you soon bitch."
