Fighter history

At 26, right-handed American David “El Bandera Roja” Benavidez (26-0, 23 KOs) showcases one of the most complete skill sets in the super-middleweight class. He stands at 6’2 with a 74.5-inch reach and possesses possibly the most powerful punching profile in the division. Yet, as powerful as Benavidez is, it is his accuracy that makes him the knockout threat that he is. Remember: No boxer has lasted a full fight against Benavidez since February 2018 (def. Ronald Gavril via UD).

Caleb “Sweethands” Plant (22-1, 13 KOs) is a very well-rounded fighter at age 30. With only a single blemish on his professional boxing record (a respectable loss to Canelo Alvarez back in November of 2021), Plant does exactly the opposite of his surname, staying mobile in the ring. With flourishing footwork, Plant is a crafty fighter that has made a living off making his opponents miss. Against the heavy-handed Benavidez, Plant will look to keep his opponent off balance and off schedule.
