David Benavidez: “Caleb Plant brought the ‘Mexican Monster’ out of me”

Former super middleweight champions David Benavidez and Caleb Plant will square off on Saturday on Showtime pay-per-view. Both fighters are hoping to secure a victory and advance to a bigger fight.

The former two-time WBC champion at 168 pounds, Benavidez (26-0, 23 KO), will try to maintain his unbeaten record, defend the WBC interim title he's carrying into the fight, and possibly force a bout with Canelo Alvarez if he can defeat Plant (22-1, 13 KO), who's only defeat came at the hands of Canelo in 2021.

“This is a dream come true. There’s a lot at stake in this fight. I’ve been wanting an opportunity like this for a long, long time. The time is right, right now. This is the best time to make this fight happen. I’m ready to give the fans what they want to see. I’m going for the knockout on Saturday.

“I have tremendous power. Everybody I hit gets hurt. I end up breaking them down little by little. This is the most focused I’ve ever been for a fight. But whatever he brings to the table, I’m going to be ready for it. I’m looking for that knockout and I’m going to get it.

“I just want to push myself. This is pay-per-view. I want to be in the limelight. I want to continue having pay-per-view fights and to do that, I have to push and get the knockout. This is the best I’ve ever felt mentally, physically and emotionally. I was already a monster before, but Caleb Plant brought the ‘Mexican Monster’ out of me.
