Benavidez retains WBC crown


Feb 19, 2018-

David Benavidez outclassed Ronald Gavril to easily retain his WBC super-middleweight crown with a unanimous points victory on Saturday. The 21-year-old champion from Phoenix dominated Romania’s Gavril to claim a deserved win at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas. Benavidez had beaten Gavril, 31, last September by a split decision to claim the vacant crown in one of the best fights of 2017. Benavidez improved to 20-0 with 17 knockouts after the win. (AFP)
