Benavidez aims for early KO against Ellis

Two-time world champion David Benavídez (23-0, 20 KOs) faces Ronald Ellis (18-1-2, 12 KOs) in a 12-round WBC super-middleweight title eliminator March 13 on Showtime from Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut.

“I’ve had an amazing camp in Big Bear and this is the strongest I have ever felt so I’m looking to get an early stoppage against Ellis,” said Benavidez. “I’m glad this is a title eliminator and it’s going to be another step to being a world champion once again.”

The telecast also features lightweights Isaac Cruz (20-1-1, 15 KOs) and Matías Romero (24-0, 8 KOs) in a 12-round co-main event bout. A 10-round super welterweight affair between Terrell Gausha (21-2-1, 10 KOs) and Jamontay Clark (15-1-1, 7 KOs) will open the show.

  • This should be a good fight with Benavidez hopefully makes weight and wins by a decision or late round stoppage.

  • I think he should concentrate on laying off the blow and making weight.

  • Yep, that should be in Al’s “Keys to Victory” 🙂
    “Solid consistent jab, no blow the week of the fight, and make weight like a pro is supposed to”

  • I want to see Benavidez make weight for a dramatic KO of Ellis and remind the world that no person is the king at 168 until he is defeated.

    • the problem he may not make weight. This cocaine man will never be the best at 168 as Clenbuterol wont fight him…

  • A clean, healthy, and “on weight” Benavidez can accomplish a whole lot.

    This should be a better WBC elimination bout than last week’s Dirrel vs Davis….. which was also a WBC eliminator…..?

  • Better AIM to make weight David, is the best for your boxing career, of course keep winning too

  • Benavídez in 2! , He needs to make a statement and not fk around and get this kid out of there asap.

  • Benavidez would be wise to not sleep on Ellis. He’s better than what he’s accomplished in his career and is no easy task
