    Default David Benavidez looks like the goods.

    I actually had to catch myself during the Gavril beat up as hype has a way of overtaking reality. But I was very impressed with his improvement. He looked fluid, composed and displayed great ring awareness. Now I get he had the luxury of facing a hard nail he had already fought over 12 but I think this kid is here to stay. Only hope he stays at 168 and resist adding weight that he's already carried.

    Love to see him with another defense or two and then mix in with fellow champs.

    There are some decent fights at 168 for him. Ramirez is the best option at the moment and I think he is beatable. Ramirez is pretty good but seems to be missing something that makes him really good. Then he has the winner of the 168 tournament.

    He seems so seasoned for a guy with a minimal amateur background. Has a great engine, and has shown a willingness to improve. He does need to tighten his defense but I like what I see.

    He has been on my "To watch" list since last year. Top tier talent. Needs a bit more power, but he still is exciting to watch.

    Hard to believe just 15 ama bouts. He has some gaps to work on over 24 rnds with Gavril, got clipped on the ropes a couple times and when Gavril opened rounds shooting a hard constant jab Benavides closed down a bit and started reacting second. But that varied arsenal, talk about gears on an uppercut, and matter of fact poise and confidence stood out. He's definitely a kid who knows he belongs in the room. For all the talk of Eubanks Jr off a loss on the same day I'd pick Benavidez to take that one.

    His father is a very underrated trainer, his brother is also a former undefeated champ. I think he beats Ramirez.

    Hearing it was coke rather than PEDs.

    Oi vey not smart. Has to fall under recreational drug regardless of how dumb and self destructive it is for him. But if it's on the banned substances list then dirty is dirty in their eyes I suppose. Makes you wonder how much the promotional yo-yo and fight fall outs have been mashed in with personal habits and partying it up. He may not be suspended but for a kid just realizing the 'big time' and fame he needs to get his head right. It is the WBC so you never really know what they'll do. Didn't Cuadras test 'dirty' for alcohol and Sulieman talked about saving his life and helping him with personal rehab etc etc . It was like a sympathy suspension the way he sold it. "Alcohol"..mm hmm.
