David Benavidez-Jose Uzacategui Will Meet November 13
The matchup between David Benavidez and Jose Uzcategui is back on track.
Benavidez (24-0, 21 KOs) and Uzcategui (31-4, 26 KOs) will face off on November 13 at the Footprint Center in Phoenix, Arizona as the PBC Showtime main event. The fight was originally scheduled for August 28, but Benavidez tested positive for Covid-19.
At 20 years old, Benavidez was the youngest middleweight champion in the division’s history. He was stripped of the title after testing positive for cocaine in 2018. He reclaimed the title after defeating Anthony Direll in the ninth round in 2019.
He lost it again after weighing nearly three pounds overweight in the following bout.
Uzacategui is also a former champion. But the power puncher lost to Plant in January 2019.
