David Benavidez wants a big fight with Canelo Alvarez, and he decided to fight the slick boxing Demetrius Andrade who is one of the most avoided fighters to stay busy. Andrade reminded me of Ronald “Winky Wright “ who was equally avoided since he was a slick boxer that no one really wanted to tangle with. He eventually fought Shane Mosley who just finished beating Oscar De La Hoya twice and looking for a big fight with Felix Trinidad. Wright upset Mosley and Andrade was hoping to do the same to Benavidez 콜린스 사전 다운로드.
For Benavidez, this fight was designed to show case his skills and force a bigger fight with Alvarez. He needed a big name on his resume. Benavidez is coming off a victory over Caleb Plant and he won his last seven of his past ten victories by stoppage and Andrade was his steppingstone to Alvarez 다운로드.
The first round saw Andrade boxing and moving as Benavidez couldn’t find his prey to overwhelm him and in the second round Andrade even prove to be aggressor as he unleashed his own ten punch combination and after three rounds I had Andrade up three rounds to zero 다운로드. He out landed Benavidez 32 punches to 21 punches. It looked like it might be competitive, but the fourth round changed all that.
Starting in the fourth round, Benavidez took over the fight. Benavidez turned the table and dominated the last three rounds as he landed 96 punches to Andrade 36. Andrade opponents in past fights landed an average 5.4 punches per round but Benavidez landed 20 punches per round in this fight with most of those punches landing in the fourth, fifth and sixth round 다운로드.
Benavidez started to control the fight in the fourth round and at the end of the round, a right hand sent Andrade down before the bell rang ended the round 다운로드.
Over the next two rounds, it was just Benavidez who simply dominated the fight as Andrade weakened and no longer capable of hurting Benavidez who kept pouring it on. The fight was stopped after the sixth round as it became apparent to Andrade’s corner this fight was over.
Next fight that Benavidez wants is Alvarez and that will be a great fight, two sluggers against one another but Benavidez is the bigger and younger fighter.
