Benavidez’s persistent aggressiveness was clear from the start. Andrade swirled and changed levels to avoid Benavidez, but the strain caught up with him. By the third round, David Benavidez had found opportunities for heavy punches. The fourth round saw heavy combos up to a powerful right hand that knocked Andrade down.

Benavidez maintained his pursuit, chasing Andrade with powerful uppercuts. Multi-punch combinations weakened Andrade’s defense, and by the sixth round, Benavidez’s power had overcome him. In the sixth, Benavidez launched an aggressive bombardment in a show of dominance. Multiple uppercuts and right punches knocked Andrade to the ground. Andrade’s camp smartly stopped the fight before the seventh round, securing Benavidez’s victory.

Benavidez’s victory adds another exceptional chapter to his perfect record and raises reservations regarding a future meeting with Canelo Alvarez, the undisputed champion. Benavidez, who had a 28-0 record and 24 knockouts, lost no time in calling out Canelo in his post-fight statements.
