The fighters didn't go easy on each other as they wanted to gain the most learning experience from the sparring session.

QUOTES: "It's truly an honor to spar with a World Champion like Shawn (Porter), he has a lot of experience, fast and very disciplined. When my Dad (Trainer Jose Benavidez Sr.) told me they wanted to spar, I got excited to get some Championship sparring done for this camp."  - David Benavidez

"You know, I really wanted to feel his power, feel the pressure. I know his Dad was telling him to tap me, but I was like, don't tap me! Hit me! We went hard and look he's 22 years old! I learned a lot from a 22 year old today. David is a beast!" - Shawn Porter

"Now we both will be WAR READY for September 28th! Iron sharpens Iron but we aren't done sharpening!" - Shawn Porter
