Where To Watch:
Why Bet on David Benavidez?
Trained by his father, Benavidez was the WBC World super-middleweight champion between 2017 to 2020, which is when he lost his title on the scales.
David is a hard-hitting combination puncher, with an 88% KO ratio, and currently riding on a six-fight stoppage streak.
But he is also a lot smarter in the ring than people think. He is busy with his relentless attacks, and the pressure he applies is educated, rarely ever spoiling his work, keeping the distance at mid-range where he can work best.
When DB won his world title against Ronald Gavril, he was well ahead on the scorecards and then suffered a 12th-round flash knockdown. It was more exhaustion that led to that rather than him crumbling under a hard shot.
Why Bet on Caleb Plant?
Plant was the IBF World super-middleweight champion between 2019 to 2021, but then Canelo took his belt via 11th-round TKO to complete the set and become undisputed.
Caleb Plant is a clever, stylish fighter with sublime movement. He doesn’t get fazed under pressure and will keep firing shots when backed up or under duress.
He doesn’t respect his opponents, as in he will hold his feet and trade toe to toe, even if he’s in with a big puncher like Canelo.
It was a launching left hook that connected in the penultimate round that wobbled his legs after taking most of the Mexican’s hardest punches for half an hour. Then Canelo followed up and stopped him.
When Plant throws the jab, he does so from different levels, which are the awkward angles that could work for him to land his shots but to also upset his opponent’s rhythm.
Final Betting Analysis – David Benavidez vs. Caleb Plant
Benavidez will undoubtedly pressure Caleb and force him to fight but will have to watch out because he sets traps.
It’s better to pressure Plant from a distance, which Benavidez can do with his slight height and reach advantages. Caleb is such a great counter-puncher, so opponents have to stay two steps ahead of him at all times.
When Benavidez has opponents backing up, he follows them closely to rain punches in from everywhere making it extremely difficult to escape. This is where Caleb will do well to hold.
He is often quick to catch counters on his gloves, but as a stand-up tall fighter, he can eat a few too. This is where Plant needs to be sharp and reactive, to score through these openings.
When Benavidez starts throwing his combinations, you have to punch back, accurately, to break his rhythm. You can’t allow him to get into a groove because then it’s going to be a long, hard night.
The best bet for Benavidez would be to pressure constantly, as is his custom, and to know how to cut the ring off intelligently without getting tangled up.
David is fast, he’s big, and he can jab, but he has to cut off the ring to slow Caleb down and move him into the position where he wants him to be, which is when and where he can attack with punches in bunches.
It’s such a great fight, by far the best matchup of the year yet, but we simply believe that the stronger, more aggressive David Benavidez wins by late KO between rounds 9-12.
Go for a victory for Benavidez. If you bet $100 at -370 you could get $27.03 for a total payout of $127.03.
