Unbeaten welterweight Jose Benavidez Jr. will remain out of the ring to rest from a recurring injury, manager Steven Feder told Boxingscene.com recently.

The unbeaten Benavidez (17-0, 13 KOs) last fought on October 13th, defeating Pavel Miranda by unanimous decision over eight rounds, despite getting hurt in the final stanza.

During the bout, Benavidez re-aggravated an injury to his right hand. That injury was a broken right hand suffered in his November 2011 bout against Samuel Santana.

Benavidez had surgery on his right hand after the Santana fight and fought three more times since that bout. However, although there was no significant injury to his hand, Benavidez and his team decided it was best to rest until he was at 100% and not allow the injury to linger.

“He was suffering pain, so it was best to get him to rest,” said Feder over the phone. “He’s at an age where we do not want to push him. We’re thinking about him in the long term.”

Feder also said Benavidez will remain out of the ring six to eight months from the Miranda bout. Six to eight months is in the April-June range.

“He’s not training, but he is running and staying in shape,” said Feder.

Benavidez, who hails from Phoenix, has trained at the Wild Card Gym in Hollywood. He is promoted by Top Rank.

[QUOTE=richardt]There are many young guys who are stepping up. Go look at Javiar Fortuna's record. It includes a former world champ and 2 unbeaten prospects. TONS of young guys on ShowBox have already stepped up by their 12-15th fight. All they are doing is over-protecting Benevidez.[/QUOTE] ...

[QUOTE=richardt]His team needs to stop putting him in with hopeless, hapless setups and gravy train fights. Enough sub 500 and no names. If you are going to injure your hand, it may as well be against another prospect or low level contender, instead of a setup.[/QUOTE] They have to. Benavidez ...
