A CLASSIC puncher vs. boxer match-up awaits boxing fans on Saturday night (November 25) in Las Vegas.
Super-middleweights David Benavidez and Demetrius Andrade will face one another in a high stakes encounter at the Michelob Ultra Arena, with the winner becoming a leading contender to face 168lbs champion Canelo Alvarez in 2024.
Eight months ago, Benavidez delivered the biggest win of his career when defeating Caleb Plant, while Andrade, having moved through the weights from super-welterweight, is in need of a similar victory in a career that has so far lacked a defining win.
The marauding, power-punching and relentless Benavidez against the tricky, elusive, accurate southpaw Andrade This should be one to savour.
