From Dan Ambrose: David Benavidez Would Likely Be challenging WBC super middleweight champion Anthony Dirrell for his title in August or Even September, according to ESPN.
It was decided by the WBC on Monday for Dirrell to defend his WBC super middleweight belt against the 22-year-old Benavidez using the winner of the struggle facing compulsory challenger Avni Yildirim (21-2, 12 KOs) in their second defense of this belt. World Boxing Council president Mauricio Sulaiman held a news conference on Monday to talk about the organization’therefore resolution. Yildirim lost his last struggle to Dirrell by a10 round technical decision on February 23 in Minesota. The battle has been stopped due to Dirrell suffering a cut from head butt which he had suffered three rounds early in the day at the seventh. But, Yildirim was talking over the struggle during the right time of the stoppage, also now that there ’SA good chance he would have won if the struggle had gone the distance.
With the struggle being stopped after the 10th round, it went into the scorecards, also Dirrell got the ‘W’ by the scores 96-94, 96-94 Dirrell, and 98-92 for Yildirim. Ahmet Oener, the promoter for Yildirim, appealed to the WBC to have them order an immediate rematch against Dirrell. The WBC instead said Yildirim won’t even get an immediate rematch, but they can fight on the undercard of their Dirrell-Benavidez card and face the winner of the struggle. It’SA good bargain for Yildirim if heor even rsquo;s convinced they can beat Benavidez, who will probably be the favorite against Dirrell. If Yildirim doesn’t even enjoy the idea of potentially fighting Benavidez, they can turn down the struggle and proceed in another way. Yildirim will have to make an essential choice. If he turns the winner of the Dirrell vs. Benavidez struggle, he would be passing up a nice money back, along with his chances might perhaps not be any better in him beating some of those other champions at super middle weight.
“I watched Anthony Dirrell together with the WBC belt. They could ’t even predict himself champion before he fights me,” Benavidez reported. “That’s my belt. I’m definitely going to go get it. ”
Dirrell is going to have a hard time working with Benavidez’s size, power, youth and pressure kind of fighting. Benavidez fights the same manner as Jack, however he’s more of a puncher and a lot younger. If Dirrell’s stamina conditions that he revealed in battles against Yildirim and Denis Douglin resurface against Benavidez, he’therefore not only going to continue long . Dirrell will have to maintain sound condition, and ready for a true war from beginning to finish. Dirrell has got the hitting ability, speed and punch accuracy to possibly conquer Benavidez, however he’ll need to proceed after hum ancient if heor even rsquo;s to win this struggle. Dirrell arguably features a puncher’s no chance against Benavidez.
