Benavidez was born in Phoenix, Arizona 26 years ago and is of Mexican descent, so he is also known as the ‘Mexican Monster’. While he chases confirmation of a date for his long-awaited fight against Canelo Alvarez, this weekend he will put his WBC super middleweight interim title on the line against a dangerous “Boo Boo” Andrade.
The “Red Flag” has been twice world super middleweight champion, but Andrade also boasts two titles in two divisions, so there is great anticipation of the stellar fight that will take place at the Michelob ULTRA Arena at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.
Both boxers come in with undefeated winning records. Benavidez is obliged to show off now that the WBC has confirmed him as the official challenger of Saul Alvarez and there is nothing left to do but to give a convincing showing of his power in the ring.
For his part, Andrade is looking to add another title to his collection and prove that he can be one of the names to watch in the 168-pound division.
“Andrade is a very skilled fighter, but I’m bigger, stronger and a better boxer,” Benavidez said at the announcement. “I know the kind of fight the fans are expecting, so I’m working every day to be able to get in the ring on November 25 and go for the knockout. I’m coming to show everyone why I’m ‘The Monster’ at 168 pounds.”
