[QUOTE=Motorcity Cobra;17682430]He's a prospect so of course he hasn't fought anyone yet. You're his step up fight.[/QUOTE] He is not even a big step up. Porky lost to the dude Lemieux just beat with one hand.

[QUOTE=Graz;17682361]Agree. I think Porky was robbed in that fight against DeGale. Porky is the real deal.[/QUOTE]I almost think this is a bad move for a young guy like Benavidez, but it would be a big accomplishment if he can stop…
