Ronnie Shields: David Morrell Wants Everyone

David Morrell is making it clear he wants to fight everyone.

The Cuban boxer, who happens to be southpaw is the secondary world champion of the WBA owning the “world” super middleweight title, the owner of the full-fledged title is none other than Canelo Alvarez.

Alvarez is out indefinitely with a wrist injury that he just had surgery on.

After his twelfth round stoppage of Aidos Yerbossynuly, Morrell wants it to be known he wants to face the best.

“I don’t want him to get into chasing Benavidez or chasing Caleb Plant,” Ronnie Shields, the new head coach of David Morrell told Keith Idec “[Benavidez] is a econdary champion. [Morrell] wants to fight Canelo, but, of course, Canelo’s not gonna fight him. It’s up to the management, like always, what’s next. You know? And I’ve just gotta come up with a game plan for whoever’s next.”

It is clear with only a handful of fights Morrell is now in the conversation as one of the five best guys in the division.

“I said it would take two or three fights to get him where I want him to be,” Shields said. “You seen the difference from the past two fights. He boxed when he had to box. He stayed in the middle of the ring, like I wanted him to. A couple times he got on the ropes, when he wasn’t supposed to. I had to jump on him about that, but overall, yeah, he did 100 percent what we trained to do.”

Morrell is now actively pleading his case to be considered in the mix with one of the big name fighters for his next fight.
