David Benavidez vs Kyrone Davis: Age, height, weight

24-year-old Benavidez and 27-year-old Davis don’t have major differences in their physical status. They share almost similar features, with Benavidez relishing a slight advantage. Benavidez is 6’0 ½ “tall with a 74 ½ “reach.

In response, Davis stands at 5’10 ½ “with a reach of 73”. While the fight will take place in the super middleweight category. Both men will be allowed to weigh in between 160 lbs-168 lbs. So, it will be physically a 50-50 fight. But winning a showdown of such massive caliber will require much more than that.

Records and Knockouts

Benavidez’s unbeaten run has seen him go through the light heavyweight division and then the super middleweight division, with a WBC title win. He holds an active record of 37-0 in which he has scored 30 KOs. He is undoubtedly one of the most ferocious super middleweight boxers of the present. Box Rec cites him to have a 4/5 star rating.

 

But his opponent Kyrone Davis is 16-2-1 with just 6 KOs to his name. Two of his losses have come against Junior Castillo in 2016 and Patrick Day in 2o18. He clearly doesn’t compare with Benavidez’s undefeated run. But when it comes to landing an upset, we can see ‘Shut It Down’ Davis stealing the spotlight.

His net worth isn’t disclosed by any credible source. However, looking at his record, it’s assumable that he is not very far from becoming a millionaire.
