Morrell attempts to match Loma’s record

Unbeaten super middleweights Osvary David Morrell Jr. (2-0, 2 KOs) and Lennox Allen (22-0-1, 14 KOs) will step into the ring at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California, this Saturday night to fight for the World Boxing Association (WBA) interim 168lb title.

The 22-year-old Morrell will attempt to make history by becoming the third fighter in history to win a world title in his third professional fight, a feat only Vasyl Lomachenko and Saensak Muangsurin have achieved to date.

Allen is getting his first world title opportunity at 35 years of age.

Morrell is a -625 favorite. FOX will televise.

In the main event, welterweights Jamal “Shango” James and Thomas Dulorme meet for the WBA interim 147lb title. James is currently about a 2:1 favorite in that one.

  • The WBA Super middleweight Rankings are a bit weak. Still takes a bunch of faith for this type of move. Good luck to Lennox Allen, seems he had to actually earn his shot.

  • Hope this does not turn into another Miranda Adkins situation. Morrell has a pretty damn good boxing Ammy pedigree but still, relatively no pro experience.

  • Disappointed in fight news this is an “ interim “ title fight … not a “ history” making fight

  • Is this an interim title of the regular title but the actual title is the super champ.???? Gotta love the W.B.A
    ( we belt anybody)

  • terrible job by fightnews here. an interim title is not a world title. this should be edited as Morrell would not break any record if he wins

  • The WBA is completely down.
    How did Morrell get ranking (#3!)? He had no opponent, he didn’t get the belt …

  • Not a real world title and Loma actually won a World title in his second fight but got screwed over by the North American boxing establishment.
