David Benavidez vs. Ronald Ellis Weigh-in Results

All eyes were on David Benavidez for weigh-in day.

Benavidez is set to take on Ronald Ellis this Saturday night, March 13. This will be Benavidez’s first bout since August 2020. While Benavidez defeated Roamer Alexis Angulo, he was stripped of the WBC Super-Middleweight Title after missing weight.

Benavidez isn’t seeing much in Ellis in terms of being a threat. Here’s what he told Ring Magazine.

“I don’t see too much of a threat. He doesn’t have too much power. Not too much speed, so I think I’m going to go in there and do whatever I want to do and I’m expecting to have a spectacular KO.”

Benavidez also responded to those who criticize the matchmaking.

“When we first came out to camp I was originally looking at (former world titlist) Jose Uzcategui. He turned the fight down and then we tried to get the man who beat Uzcategui, Lionell Thompson. He turned it down and I think in the position I’m in right now, since I don’t have a title no more, everybody looks at me as a threat and it’s not worth the risk. So, it was kind of hard finding an opponent.

“What are you supposed to do when you can’t get these fighters to fight you? You take the next person who’s willing to fight. That’s where we’re at with Ronald Ellis.”

With Benavidez having missed weight for his last outing, many wondered if he would hit his target ahead of the Ellis fight. The good news is he did. Both Benavidez and Ellis tipped the scales at 167.2 pounds, making their bout official.
