Benavidez Vs. Andrade Is Being ‘Finalized’ For This Fall

David Benavidez could face Demetrius Andrade after ESPN confirmed that a fight is being finalized for this fall in Las Vegas.

The WBC interim champion at super-middleweight is in great form, having beaten Caleb Plant via a unanimous decision to make him a contender for Canelo Alvarez.

However, such a fight did not materialize, as the Mexican decided to face Jermell Charlo on September 30th, 2023. 

Benavidez has already reached the heights, having been a two-time champion in the super-middleweight division only to lose the belts twice.

One one occasion Benavidez failed a test for cocaine, while on the other occasion, he did not make weight. 

However, facing Andrade will not be a walkover. Andrade is also a former two-time world champion at 154 and 160.

Therefore, facing Benavidez at 168 will be something new, especially since he is 34-years-old.

The star’s slick style and boxing IQ may pose some troubles for the ‘Mexican Monster’ who is known for putting fighters under pressure with high volume and body work. 

With that being said, the boxing community on social media were looking forward to such a bout.
