Ravenous Benavidez on a “Hotdog” mission to recover WBC title
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 the undefeated Mexican former world champion, David ” Red Flag ”Benavidez (21-0, 18 knockouts).
Dirrell comes from conquering 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.
“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,” pledged “Red Flag.”
