Morrell shocked Falcao early in the first round. Falcao turned his back, staggering, and listened to the referee count to eight. After that, Morrell landed a crushing right to the head and sent Falcao to the floor face down before the end of the countdown. Stop time 2:22. Falcao, who was knocked out for several minutes, accepted the fight ten days before it took place.

“Next will be David Benavidez,” Morrell said after the fight. - Where is he? I want to fight Benavidez. He's next, 100%. I don't want any other super middleweight guys. Only Benavidez. I respect Benavidez and his team, but in the ring I don't respect anyone."
