By Ryan Burton has been advised that the recently announced showdown between David Benavidez and Ronald Gavril, who will fight for the vacant WBC super middleweight title, will take place in Las Vegas on September 8th and will headline a PBC on Bounce TV card.

Benavidez (18-0) was originally scheduled to face Callum Smith for the title that was vacated by Badou Jack when Jack decided to move up to the light heavyweight division earlier this year.

Smith dropped out of the fight and joined the World Boxing Super Series super middleweight tournament instead, and faces Erik Skoglund in the first round next month.
