David Benavidez vs. J´Leon Love

10 rounds, super middleweights

David Benavidez is an exceptional young champion. He was the WBC super middleweight champion at 20 years old which is quite incredible. He won a split decision against Ronald Gavril in their first encounter and then erased all doubt in the rematch as to who the best fighter between them is. Ronald Gavril might be unknown to many in the U.S but he is no joke. The guy has over 300 amateur fights and has wins over several world champions. So that win, especially the second one over Gavril was very impressive and he hurt him several times. He is now facing another Money Team fighter in J´Leon Love. We rate J´Leon Love a step below Gavril. He is up against it in this fight with Benavidez as he is giving up all the advantages: Height, Power, speed, technique and being the A-side. It will take an extra-ordinary performance from Love to get the victory here. We just don’t see it. The pick is David Benavidez.

The Pick: David Benavidez to win fight
