Super middleweight prospects David Benavidez, 18-0, 17 KOs, and Ronald Gavril, 18-1, 14 KO, vie for the vacant WBC super middleweight belt from The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, Las Vegas, September 8th, this Friday night.
Normally these types of fights would part of the development of a fighter on his way to becoming a contender, but boxing is so weak these days, they have to round up their kids to make a title fight in many cases. Benavidez is 20 yrs to Gavril’s 31 yrs, but their pro comp is about similar, meaning on paper this could be considered near even. However, Benavidez is a touted prospect looking mighty promising in a weak era if he can hold it together mentally. Most talented guys in the history of boxing can’t and so never pan out.
Great opportunity for both, so should be a good fight since this will be the biggest fight both in media exposure and talent that either has had.
