Benavidez had a wrist injury and only got the cast off a few weeks ago.
There were rumours about him being on the Pac/Bradley undercard, but it might be too soon.
His younger brother David, who is only 15, is making local headlines at the moment for sparring with Kelly Pavlik for his Jaco combeack fight, and earlier sparring (and looking good) against Nobuhiro Ishida (the Japanese fighter who beat Kirkland). David Benavidez has his next amateur fight scheduled for April 21st, so I expect some news from Team Benavidez about Jose Jr's next fight after that. Like I said, maybe comeback on June 9th in Las Vegas.
As for Frankie Gomez, no idea. He was scheduled to fight last September, but had to pull out with a hand injury. But those rumours about him hanging it up, because his heart is not in it anymore, are very worrying. One of my favourite prospects...
