David Benavidez Vs. Demetrius Andrade Preliminary And Undercard Live Results, Recaps: Subriel Matias Stops Shohjahon Ergashev In Round Six

David Benavidez and Demetrius Andrade face off in their super middleweight bout with the Mexican’s WBC interim belt on the line.

The winner will have the right to face Canelo Alvarez for his undisputed title, with everything on the line for the two undefeated fighters. Benavidez arrives into the fight following his win over Caleb Plant. Meanwhile, Andrade is aiming to follow his win over Demond Nicholson in what was the boxer’s second fight at 168. In chief support, Jermall Charlo takes on Jose Benavidez Jr. in a bout at 163 pounds.

But since Charlo weighed in over the limit at 164.4 and then 164.6, there are question marks over whether he can deliver after having been out of the ring for more than two years with mental health struggles. Elsewhere, Subriel Matias defends his IBF 140-pound title against Shohjahon Ergashev. Meanwhile, Hector Luis Garcia does the same with his WBA 130-pound title against Lamont Roach.

Subriel Matias vs. Shohjahon Ergashev – Junior Welterweight 

Subriel Matias retained his IBF junior welterweight title with a sixth-round stoppage win over Shohjahon Ergashev. From the opening bell, it was the challenger, Ergashev, who pushed Matias on the back foot with a strong left hand that connected. Ergashev continued to apply the pressure and keep Matias off balance as the latter resorted to a defensive stance. The former’s strong start continued in the second as the champion took further big shots from the southpaw, as his jab and uppercut landed on the inside.

Matias, however, finally had some success with a counter before the bell. That woke Matias up as he began to walk down his opponent. The champion had Ergashev back on the ropes as he let fly with numerous right and left hands in the fourth round.

And it all came to a head in the fifth. Matias’ pressure and output proved too much, with Ergashev beginning to feel the pace. And in the following round, the referee stopped the fight after two seconds of the sixth at the request of the corner.
