Where To Watch:
Why bet on David Benavidez?
David Benavidez has had a career of highs and lows, not because of his boxing ability but because of his personal life. For example, in 2019 he was stripped of his super middleweight world title for a positive cocaine test.
But the Arizona native has been able to pick himself up from his knocks and this year regained the belt that belonged to him, defeating a difficult opponent like Caleb Plant by unanimous decision.
Benavidez, of Latino roots, is an orthodox fighter, but he has only fought once this year and was in the aforementioned fight against Plant.
But his record is unblemished, as he is at 27-0 and has knocked out 23 of his opponents, showing the power he has in his hands. Eighty-five percent of his fights have ended by way of a knockout.
In his home country, he is ranked No. 1 in his weight class and second best in the world.
Despite being only 26 years old, the ‘Monster’ has had a long career since he made his professional debut at 16 and is the youngest 168-pound champion in history, having won it at the age of 20.
His height is 1.88 meters, and his reach is 1.89, slightly larger than his opponent.
Why bet on Demetrius Andrade?
Demetrius Andrade has been a professional since 2008 and is one of the most important super middleweight fighters in the world. He has even been champion in another division, such as super welterweight.
He had five successful defenses of the world middleweight title he won against Walter Kautondokwa but lost the belt for not fighting again when the schedule demanded it.
Nevertheless, Andrade’s career is remarkable, as he has a record of 32 wins and no losses. Nineteen of his opponents lost by knockout.
This year he has only fought once, defeating Demond Nicholson by unanimous decision in Washington. That ended a drought of fights, since in 2022 he did not fight.
‘Boo Boo’ is a southpaw, he is 1.83 meters tall, and his reach is at 1.87 meters. He is the second-best super middleweight in the United States, only behind his opponent this weekend.
