A Clash of Titans: Benavidez vs Plant at MGM Grand Garden Arena

David Benavidez and Caleb Plant have made it no secret that they don’t like each other before their Interim WBC super middleweight title fight.

While Benavidez has been relatively low-key before the biggest fight of his career, Plant has been fighting everyone on social media. Renowned trainer Buddy McGirt believes that controlling the bad blood is essential, and one should not go into the fight trying to knock out the opponent.

Plant has to be careful to avoid getting too emotionally involved while battling it out online with Benavidez’s father and trainer, Jose.

Meanwhile, Benavidez is seemingly keeping his focus on the task at hand. The fight may finally see him fulfill his potential and become a star. A victory by Benavidez on Saturday would put him in the Canelo sweepstakes, but first, he must face Plant, who is arguably the toughest test of Benavidez’s career.

And so, it all comes down to Saturday night at the MGM Grand Garden Arena. A fight that has been brewing for years, a grudge match fueled by bad blood and animosity.

For Benavidez, it’s the chance to prove himself as the best in the division, to silence the doubters and secure his place in the sport’s biggest fights.

For Plant, it’s an opportunity to bounce back from his loss to Alvarez, to prove that he still belongs among the elite and can handle the power and pressure of a fighter like Benavidez.

It’s a fight that promises fireworks, with two of the sport’s most exciting fighters going toe-to-toe in the ring.

Whether it’s Benavidez’s power or Plant’s technical skills that prevail, one thing is for sure – this is a fight that fans won’t want to miss.
