David Morrell vs. Lennox Allen

12 rounds, for vacant WBA interim super middleweight title

David Morrell (2-0) is the newest talent from Cuba to arrive at the big scene in America and his talent seems real. He is being fast tracked in the kind of way the big promoters are able to fast track talented fighters who normally had long extensive amateur careers behind them. He has that going for him and they believe that already in his 3rd fight he will be ready for a seasoned professional who also happens to be undefeated in Lennox Allen (22-0-1). Although Allen is undefeated, you would struggle to find any good opponents on his ledger. The best fighter that Allen has beaten is Derek Webster which was in his last fight. Webster is massively on the decline and is nearing 40 years old. If that wasn´t enough we can tell you that Allen has had 2 fights in 5 years’ time and anyone will tell you that staying active in the gym is not the same as actually having fights.

Morrell seems to be very talented and he carries a lot of power in his shots which often are precise, at least against the limited opposition he has been facing so far. Morrell will be way too good for Allen in this fight but it might be more difficult to get Allen out of there than some people expect because he is experienced and he has good feet so this fight might go some rounds. The pick is David Morrell to win this fight for a price of -1000 (1.10 decimal odds).
