With David Benavidez Jr.’s next fight against Caleb Plant in what could be considered a grudge match at super-middleweight, boxing’s stellar year is poised to continue. It’s important to mention that the path that brought us to this fight has been interesting.
These two were continuously mean-mugging one other when they were arguably the top dogs in their division a few years ago. The two guys, however, were unable to come to an agreement when the going got tough. Then Canelo entered and assumed that position as the division’s top dog, uniting it and defeating Plant in the process.
The greatest possible form of this battle may not have been seen, but neither man is now past their prime (and Benavidez may only be beginning his), so it’s not like we missed out on seeing the best possible version of this encounter. However, as a collision of aesthetics, it’s fascinating, so settle in.
Benavidez has accomplished a lot in his career thus far, and at 26 he might still be in the early stages. In order to win the WBC belt, he defeated Ronald Gavril in a split decision, earning him his first championship. Due to the tight result, there was a rematch, in which he much improved and won by a substantial margin.

But later that year, he tested positive for cocaine, and his belt was taken away. When he came back, he defeated veteran Anthony Dirrell to win it once more, only to miss weight for his first defense and lose it once more.
He won it while Canelo was away at light heavyweight, where he lost to Bivol, and now he is in possession of the interim version of the same WBC belt. But Canelo can’t take the real crown until he engages in combat with him or leaves. With a victory here, he will want to solidify his position as Canelo’s first contender and the best of the rest.
Plant has already faced Canelo, as is well known. He failed there, but he would be thrilled to give it another go. His career thus far has been a little more composed than that of his rival; he won the title fairly steadily, held it, and recovered well from the devastating defeat.
Unlike some competitors, he has had a troubled personal life, but it doesn’t seem to have had an impact on his fighting. He should be tuned in to what, at 30 years old, isn’t quite the last chance saloon but may be approaching it if that emphasis holds true in this situation.
