David Benavidez Warns Dirrell: I'll Show I'm The Best at 168!

On September 28 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California, the super middleweight champion of the World Boxing Council, Anthony “The Dog” Dirrell (33-1-1, 24 KOs), will face undefeated Mexican former world champion, David Benavidez (21-0, 18 knockouts).

Dirrell returns from reclaiming the super middleweight  title by defeating Turkish Avni Yildirim by a technical decision in Minnesota.

Anthony has lost only once since becoming a professional 14 years ago. Back then…David Benavidez was only 8 years old.

Benavidez now aged twenty two, says he will hand Dirrell his career second loss,  when they meet in September.

“This is a fight I really want to be in. Fans have been waiting to see me recover my title. Anthony Dirrell is a tough and complicated fighter, but this will bring out the very best in me," Benavidez said.

“I will go in there and recover what is mine. I`s so very motivated, very hungry, and I will  recover my crown.  Dirrell is a great fighter.  I used to see him when I was 12 years old. So I’ve been watching him for a long time. And I feel I have the youth plus the size to defeat him. I still feel hungry. I’m definitely going to show the fans that I am the best fighter in this division."

Dirrell is a good all around fighter but I think Benavidez will beat him and probably knock him out. I think Benavidez has very fast hands and good power and he throws a lot of punches per round. He has…
