David Benavidez cannot afford any more missteps in or out of the ring. The 26-year-old remains desperate to get another bona fide world-class title shot. He faces a fighter who also was a former world champion, but even this weight class is considerably congested. Super Middleweight Boxing Bets wonder how Benavidez will perform against Plant.
Benavidez believes he can take any fighter out, and his record bears that out. The super middleweight is undefeated in 26 fights and has 23 knockouts. The Arizona native’s ability to measure his power shots and unload is well-documented. It increases the American’s chances of scoring yet another knockout or stoppage. His only losses have been outside the ring, which is a little unusual.
This fight expects to see a ton of urgency from Benavidez. Once he shakes off some rust, the “El Bandera Roja” boxer looks to start unloading on Caleb Plant. A ten-month layoff seems like a lot, but for the young fighter, this allowed Benavidez to clear his head and understand how important this fight is. Now, there is no tomorrow if Benavidez loses this fight. Some will dispute that, but three strikes could mean he is out.
Does this division feel like a random drug test, or something crazy has to happen almost every time? That answer seems to be yes too often. David Benavidez is good for next Saturday night’s super middleweight boxing bets. After starting around -250 when the odds opened, the bout hovers around -350 for the orthodox fighter. Part of the hesitation with some books was the layoff for Benavidez, but part was that pesky weight issue.
Now, Caleb Plant can knock Benavidez out. The dilemma comes from seeing two former world champions slugging it out. For Benavidez, he wants this to become a knockdown, drag-out fight. The plant wants to be able to pick and choose its spots. While the undefeated fighter from Arizona can pick spots, he possesses the more lethal and consistent power shots.
Again, Benavidez is scared of Plant a little or of losing opportunities. There lies a clear escalation in training for this fight. Also, the pugilist is acting like he never has before. He thirsts to end this bout a good deal quicker than expected. So, that could be dangerous one way or the other. There is a possibility this could wind up being a shorter but brutal bout. Taking Benavidez in nine rounds or less is a reasonable bet.
Caleb Plant gets a chance to rise again next Saturday. This fight expects to see the Nashville, Tennessee native face a powerful fighter with pain on his mind. Can Plant weather the inevitable early storms expected to come his way? That will be vital next Saturday as the fighter known as “Sweethands” understands that time is not quite on his side. Plant, at almost 31, needs another big win to springboard to a world title chance.
With the Super Middleweight Boxing Bets, Plant hangs around a nice +200 to +230 underdog for next Saturday night. That number lengthened solidly from the +140 to +170 range earlier in February. So, the good news for Plant is he appears to have Benavidez’s attention. However, that could be bad news too. Can Plant take his best shots and deliver some power punches?
Both fighters possess a clear dislike toward one another. That makes for some good boxing most of the time. Occasionally, it causes some quick endings. Again, Plant needs to use his movement to set up his hooks and crosses. Those combinations and body shots might pave the way to a late knockout of David Benavidez next Saturday. Use the moneyline in a small wager here.
Super Middleweight boxing bets and props see excellent online boxing odds for this bout. Only a few props are what we would call leaps. David Benavidez is no Anthony Dirrell. The fun part with this fight is so few believe Plant can drop Benavidez. Anything is possible in a bout like this. When two fighters have this kind of feud, it often ends in a knockout or stoppage.
It allows us a bit of leeway. One can take a flier on Plant, stopping Benavidez anywhere from Rounds 7 to 10 at +5000. Then, we can do the same for Benavidez from Rounds 8 to 10 at +900. Again, think a few dollars on each round and not anything more.
Super Middleweight boxing bets say take David Benavidez by KO/stoppage next Saturday.
