In a tough and gritty fight, Benavidez survived a twelfth round knockdown to prevail by scores of 116-111, 117-111. Gavril was up 116-111 on the third card.

“It feels amazing to win this title,” said Benavidez. “It’s everything I’ve dreamed about since I was a little kid. It’s everything I’ve dedicated myself to and I’ve worked hard for. It finally paid off. I felt my performance was good except for the last round when I got too anxious and wanted to knock him out. I let my young side takeover and I wanted to give the fans a great fight. I didn’t really feel hurt but it was a shock knockdown. I know to be careful and more cautious. It was a learning experience.” Continue reading “Benavidez beats Gavril for WBC 168lb title”

In the main event at the 2300 Arena, North Philly junior lightweight Avery Sparrow, 8-1, 3 KOs, outworked Canadian Joey LaViolette, 6-1, 4 KOs, and took the eight round decision by majority verdict. LaViolette was aggressive at times and appeared to have some power, but despite the one even score, he never threw or landed enough to construct anything resembling a victory.

On the other hand, Sparrow, quicker and busier, boxed well and plugged along to the finish line, putting six of the eight rounds in his column, on my card. The official scores were 80-72, 79-73 and that puzzling 76-76. Continue reading “Results from Philadelphia”

Golovkin: I am not Chavez Jr.

Throughout training camp, WBC/WBA/IBF middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin has been asked about the comparison between two fights — the difficulty he had against Danny Jacobs and the ease Alvarez had against Julio César Chȧvez, Jr.

“I am not Julio César Chȧvez, Jr. and Canelo is no Danny Jacobs. There are no survivors in my fights,” said Golovkin. “Boxing is a business. If I look great against Jacobs…if I knocked him out, I would not be getting this fight with Canelo now. Jacobs was a very good fighter and gave me good learning experience going 12 rounds. I have never done that before. I felt amazing going 12 rounds for the first time. Jacobs gives everyone problems.” Continue reading “Golovkin: I am not Chavez Jr.”
