David Benavidez vs. Denis Douglin on August 5th, PBC on ESPN

PHILADELPHIA - Undefeated rising contender David "El Bandera Roja" Benavidez (15-0, 14 KOs) is set to face super middleweight contender Denis Douglin (20-4, 13 KOs) in the 10-round main event of Premier Boxing Champions on ESPN and ESPN Deportes Friday, August 5 live from the 2300 Arena in Philadelphia.
 
Televised coverage begins at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT with exciting lightweight contender Alejandro "El Charro" Luna (20-0, 15 KOs) taking on Ireland's Stephen "The Rock" Ormond (21-2, 11 KOs) in a 10-round attraction.
 
"We never stopped training after my last fight," said Benavidez. "We went right back into camp and I'm already in fighting shape. Douglin is a tough southpaw. We'll start looking at tape and see what kind of holes he has. I'll start with the jab and break him down. We're working hard towards bigger and bigger fights. This is going to be a great night of action."

"I plan on applying pressure and making Benavidez adjust to my style," said Douglin. "He's a tall, strong fighter, but he doesn't use his height. He's one-dimensional, but he's very good at what he does. He doesn't have the experience to deal with my style. I am stepping in with an undefeated fighter but he will leave the ring with a loss."
 
Tickets for the live event, which is promoted by King's Promotions, are priced at $50, $75 and $100, not including fees, and are on sale now. To purchase tickets click HERE.
 
The younger brother of undefeated Jose Benavidez, David has racked up a perfect 15 wins in 15 starts at just 19-years-old. Fighting out of Phoenix, Benavidez picked up four victories via stoppage in 2015 and kicked off his 2016 with a knockout of Kevin Cobbs in January. He scored a second round knockout of Phillip Jackson Benson in April and followed that up by stopping previously unbeaten Francy Ntetu in the seventh round in June.
 
Representing Marlboro, New Jersey, Douglin was a 2008 National Golden Gloves champion at middleweight who won his first 12 fights after turning pro in 2009. The 28-year-old has battled top fighters Jermell Charlo and George Groves, in addition to owning victories over previously unbeaten Steve Martinez and veteran Charles Whitaker. He looks for his third straight victory after stopping Marcus Upshaw in the eighth round of his last bout.
 
At just 24-years old, Lunahas already put together an impressive 20 professional wins since turning pro in 2010. Fighting out of Bellflower, California, he defeated former world champion Cristobal Cruz over eight rounds in June and knocked out Sergio Lopez in August to close his 2015. He began his 2016 campaign by stopping veteran Alan Herrera in the eighth round of their January showdown.
 
Fighting out of Dublin, Ormond is undefeated in his seven starts in the U.S. including his last three outings, which all came in Massachusetts. The former European lightweight champion owns victories over Derry Mathews, previously unbeaten Adam Dingsdale and most recently tough contender Marcos Jimenez.
