David Benavidez vs Caleb Plant – Prediction Video
By Geoffrey Ciani: Who will win the upcoming super middleweight showdown between former 168 pound titlists David Benavidez and Caleb Plant?
The fight is taking place on March 25th, at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, in a bout that will be televised in the US on Showtime PPV.
Plant won the IBF belt in January 2019, and he defended that belt three times, until suffering his only career loss against Canelo Alvarez in November of 21. Benavidez first won the WBC belt in September 2017, made 1 title defense, and then was stripped by the IBF because of a positive cocaine test. Benavidez reclaimed that title in September 2019 when he beat Anthony Dirrell, but Benavidez was subsequently stripped of the title again when he failed to make weight in his very next fight.
Each of them fought only once in 2022. In May, Benavidez made quick work of David Lemiuex scoring a 3rd round stoppage win. And then in September, Plant rebounded well following the Canelo loss, and he knocked out the aforementioned Anthony Dirrell in devastating fashion.
This one is a very intriguing clash of contrasting styles, and it could potentially reveal a lot about the current state of super middleweight. Even though Plant already lost against Canelo, a win over Benavidez could perhaps pave the way to a potential rematch against the Mexican superstar. And should Benavidez emerge victorious, interest in a showdown between him and Canelo would almost certainly amplify a great deal.
