David Morrell Jr. Doesn’t Hold Back on Assessment of Edgar Berlanga

On Saturday, February 24, Edgar Berlanga defeated Padraig McCrory by a sixth-round KO. Berlanga took the time to call out Saúl “Canelo” Álvarez. The undisputed super middleweight champion is on the lookout for an opponent for a clash in Las Vegas, NV, on May 4. Whether such a fight materialises remains to be seen. Despite his KO win on Saturday, David Morrell Jr. was not impressed by his rival super middleweight.

David Morrell Jr. Gives Brutal Edgar Berlanga Assessment

David Morrell Jr. Unimpressed

David Morrell Jr. (10-0, 9 KOs) is fast making a name for himself in the super middleweight division and was left unimpressed by Berlanga’s win at the weekend. He was brutal in his assessment of his rival, describing him as nowhere near his level, and predicted a one-round victory if the two ever fought.

Morrell Jr. did not hold back and said: “Berlanga is simply not on my level. I’ve watched his fights, and I see nothing that worries me. Berlanga sucks, and I would destroy him. If we ever step into the ring together, I’ll knock him out in one round, guaranteed.”

The Cuban-born fighter made it clear he’s ready to show everyone he is the best in the division: “I’m here to prove that I’m the best. Whether it’s Berlanga or anyone else, I’ll be ready to step into the ring and show the world what I’m made of. I’m the best fighter in the super middleweight division, and soon everyone will know that.”

Bright Future for Morrell Jr.

“Osvary Morrell” has taken to the professional ranks impressively. He has recorded dominant wins against Sena AgbekoAlantez Fox and Aidos Yerbossynuly. With his criticism of Berlanga, it’s clear the 26-year-old Cuban fighter believes he has what it takes to rule the division, and from what we’ve seen so far, it’s clear why many fans are waiting to see what comes next for this explosive talent.
