They are two men who have heated up the pre-fight and promise to spark the ring in the city where boxing always leaves evenings for history. In Las Vegas, David Benavidez vs Caleb Plant is a clash that goes far beyond the dispute for the super middleweight title. It is an encounter between two warriors who want to go for more and who hope for a chance to become the king of the category in the future.
Both have Mexican Canelo Alvarez as their decoy. On the one hand, Benavidez sees Canelo as the chance of a lifetime to show that he has no limits. Plant, on the other hand, was taken away his unbeaten record and title a year and a half ago at the hands of Canelo.

Benavidez has a scary punch, which is why this undefeated 26-year-old Phoenix native finished 23 of his 26 fights in an absolute way. In the last bout, he disposed of Canadian David Lemieux in three rounds.
What’s more, he was world super middleweight champion (WBC) twice, and the last time, he lost the belt for not making weight. However, no one has been able to beat him in the ring. Another important fact: 16 of his 23 KO’s were in the first 6 rounds, while 9 of them were in the opening round. He is not a man of long fights.

Caleb Plant is a provocateur. His attitudes in and out of the ring often generate a lot of criticism. At the age of 30, the Nashville-born man nicknamed Sweethands saw the opportunity of a lifetime slip away in November 2021, when Canelo Alvarez, after throwing him a couple of times, defeated him by technical KO in round 11. and was crowned the best super middleweight of all.
It took him nearly a year to recover from that, and he did so with an impressive KO against Anthony Dirrell last October. In his first 9 fights, he had 8 KOs within the first four rounds (6 of them in the first round). What’s more, in the following 14 fights, only two were decided before the sixth round.
While he impressed with a KO in his last fight, Caleb Plant will have to be wary of Benavidez’s heavy hand. And in the ring, he won’t be able to put on the show he usually does in the prelims.
Meanwhile, Benavidez, the undefeated Arizona fighter, is a serious fighter who is on the rise. Therefore, JefeBet believes he will have a resounding winthis time.
Prediction: David Benavidez wins by KO in round 7.
