Which current fighter does he resemble you of? Unfortunately for Benton, he had all the skills but no backing.

Lou Duva, for whom Benton later worked for as an assistant trainer (although he was more like the actual trainer while Duva was the mouthpiece), later said that he "screwed" Benton of a title shot, as Benton had beaten Joey Giardello yet it was the Duva managed Giardello who went onto get the title shot.
