Benavidez vs. Lemieux Fight Preview

Benavidez (25-0, 22 KO) has proven repeatedly that he is one of boxing’s brightest talents but his own missteps have set him back from bigger things in the past. He has twice lost the WBC super middleweight championship, once after testing positive for cocaine and once for missing weight. Had Benavidez not been stripped for missing weight, he’d almost certainly have already met Alvarez in the ring on the Mexican superstar’s quest to unify all four world titles at 168 pounds.

The matchup between Benavidez and Lemieux on paper is lopsided. Benavidez comes in with a three-inch height advantage and a 13-inch reach advantage. Not to mention, he is eight years younger and undefeated in 25 fights.

Fights aren’t won or fought on paper, which gives Lemieux the chance to pull off the upset in Benavidez’s backyard. Entering the fight, Benavidez (-1800) is the betting favorite with Lemieux (+900) as the underdog.

The other two fights on the card feature Yoelvis Gomez (5-0-0) taking on Jorge Cota (30-5-0) and Luis Reynaldo Nunez (16-0-0) challenged by Jonathan Fierro (13-0-0).

The juxtaposition of Gomez, a 24-year-old undefeated young fighter and Cota, the 34-year-old veteran will be interesting to see play out. Cota has a slight physical advantage being one inch taller and having a two-and-a-half-inch reach advantage.

Lemieux (43-4, 36 KO) was a monster puncher at middleweight, scoring a knockout of notably durable Gabriel Rosado in 2014 before winning the IBF middleweight world title with a decision over Hassan N’Dam N’Jikam that saw N’Jikam hit the canvas four times.
