Catching Up With David Benavidez – WBC world super middleweight champion David Benavidez prepares for the toughest bout of his 19-0 career as he rematches Ronald Gavril this Saturday night.
The 21 year old Benavidez successfully defended his belt against Gavril this past September, but he won only a split decision as Gavril gave Benavidez a tough encounter. The two men meet again this saturday night at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas as they are the co-feature to the welterweight bout between Danny Garcia and Brandon Rios. They are exciting times for the 168 pound weight class as Benavidez is also watching the World Boxing Super Series going on in Europe. Benavidez intends to dispatch the challenge of Gavril before turning his attention to bigger fights in the weight class.
In this latest TBC segment, our man on the scene Marcelino Castillo catches the champion as he talks to the media during the build-up to Saturday’s encounter.
