WBC super middleweight champion David Benavidez and Yildirim traded trash taking barbs on social media in the past few weeks.

Here’s what two fighters had to say about each other in social media site; Avni Yildirim: I’m coming for you Benavidez! David Benavidez: Be careful what you wish for, I m gonna knock you out.

Yildirim has been working with Mike Tyson’s former coach Stacey McKinley. Turkish prospect aims to be the first ever Turkish world champion in pro boxing.

German super middleweight Vincent Feigenbutz (29-2-0) dominated and stopped at the fifth round, Yusuf Kangul (16-3-1), and kept the Global Boxing Union Intercontinental super middleweight title.

[QUOTE=nick_viking;19102492]Dude got stopped by Eubank Jr, he isn’t worrying Benavidez.[/QUOTE] 'stopped' is an understatement - the guy was beaten, broken, humiliated, brutalised and violated by Eubank Jr. It was a relentless assault
