Hard to tell at this point in his career he hasnt fought anyone of note, record and ranking is solid enough for so few fights and Cuban fighters are usually tough with heart, lets see when he starts taking on tougher opponents, it will probably give us a better idea.

You're a tough crowd.

He's had good competition in, only, 9 fights.

I've only seen him against Falcao.

 

Lots of potential, with crazy good offense,  but I also see some big holes in his defense. Morell got overly excited the several times he had Falcao hurt, and left himself wide open for a counter.  (Including at the very end, when he leaned in with his chin exposed, instead of using his feet.)Falcao wasn't good enough to capitalize,  but someone at a higher level will.  

I also saw Morell stand squared up for a second or more, at least twice in that one round. I think he does this when he temporarily switches stances.  

 

These things can be fixed, of course,  but they need to be asap.

- - Gonna have to shed the lower caste Cuban reputation in boxing. 

Cuba's best, Rigo, was like soaking in a dirty bath tub while expecting to be freshly washed.

Save for failed Drug test and unfortunate refereeing in the first Wilder fight, Ortiz was near the Breakthrough for Cuban boxers greatness, but he's nearing 50 yrs now.
