David Benavidez’s Betting Outlook vs Plant

Benavidez is a two-time WBC 168-pound championship holder and is undefeated overall as a professional pugilist. He had to forfeit gold on both occasions due to conduct outside of the ring (a failed drug test from cocaine and a weight miss).

The Plant versus Benavidez rivalry is one oriented to the two being at the highest level of this division, but there has been some bad blood brewing for a while.

Not only is the winner of this fight leaving the ring with a belt, but they could also potentially punch their ticket to fight lienal champion Canelo Alvarez down the line.

Benavidez has already accomplished so much and at 26 years of age, the sky’s the limit for his combative career.

Caleb Plant’s Betting Outlook vs Benavidez

Plant is the former IBF super middleweight champion and aims to add more hardware to his resume this weekend.

He rebounded from dropping his IBF crown by scoring one of the most notable knockouts of the year contenders of 2022 in his last outing. Plant only has a single blemish on his pro record to one of boxing pound for pound best

Both of these 168-pounders are highly experienced at this elite tier in the sport and both bring unique attributes to the table.

Benavidez’s overall stoppage rate is eighty-nine percent and while Plant’s overall finishing rate isn’t at that level, his recent performances have shown improved power in his strikes and finishing capability.

David Benavidez vs Caleb Plant Prediction

This prizefight is scheduled for twelve rounds but I do not see this one encroaching to that final bell.

I foresee value in pursuing prop bets on this clash not going the distance (-185), Benavidez winning via KO or TKO (-140), and Benavidez winning between rounds 7-9 (+350).

Pick: David Benavidez (-330)
