Ghanaian boxer, Sena Agbeko, has been ranked as the ninth contender in the World Boxing Association (WBA) Super Middleweight division in the latest rankings released by the body. This comes just ahead of his bout with the WBA super middleweight champion, David Morrell.
Agbeko, nicknamed “The African Assassin”, has won his last three fights and heads to the fight with Morrell on a winning streak. However, the Cuban southpaw is the heavy favorite to win the bout, having won seven of his eight professional bouts via knockouts, following an impressive amateur career.
The fight is set to take place on Saturday, April 22, and will be the most high-profile undercard bout on the Ryan Garcia-Gervonta Davis bill at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The event has garnered much excitement among boxing fans, who eagerly anticipate the match-ups.
The WBA Super Middleweight division is stacked with top talent, and Agbeko will be up against tough competition. Undefeated Demetrius Andrade, who has won all 32 of his fights, tops the rankings as the number one contender, while Caleb Plant, who recently lost via unanimous decision to David Benavidez, ranks fifth on the list.
Agbeko has had a successful professional career so far, with 27 wins and two losses under his belt. However, he faces an uphill battle against Morrell, who has shown impressive skill and technique in his professional career thus far.
The rankings released by the WBA demonstrate the level of talent in the super middleweight division, and the anticipation surrounding the upcoming fight between Agbeko and Morrell only adds to the excitement. Boxing fans will be eagerly awaiting the outcome of the fight, which has the potential to be a thrilling and action-packed bout.
