Starting in 2013, David Benavidez has operated in the super-middleweight as well as the light-heavyweight divisions. However, after stepping into the ring with Ronald Gavril in 2017, he found a fixed home as he won his first-ever WBC championship at super-middleweight.

Since 2013, he has fought 24 times, has beaten all 24, remains undefeated to date, and has also won and defended belts. Some even believe Benavidez might be the only one who could possibly take Canelo Alvarez‘s undisputed throne away from him.

Today, he is 24-0 as a professional boxer and is looking to fight more to regain what he lost earlier – his super-middleweight throne.
