David Benavidez Fully Certain He Knocks Out Oleksandr Gvozdyk

On June 15, two-time 168 pound champion David “The Monster” Benavidez (28-0, 24 KO’s) will be all but skipping to his next assignment. In that bout, Benavidez will face the challenge of Oleksandr “The Nail” Gvozdyk (20-1, 16 KO’s) in his light heavyweight debut.

Even more exciting, their clash under the hot lights of the MGM Grand will hold the vacant WBC interim 175-pound title up for grabs. His duel with The Nail will stand as the co-main event to Abdul “Tank” Wahid (Gervonta Davis) versus Frank Martin in what is sure to be a star studded pay-per-view event.

“I’ve been training for the best Oleksandr Gvozdyk there possible can be. So I know with me training like that, I will be 100% and I will be ready for anything that comes my way. And I am definitely looking to make a splash. It’s a very big card, me and Gervonta Davis fighting together – I feel like this is going to be the biggest card of the year! This is definitely a treat for the fans and I am just excited about being a part of this event.”


Another reason that Benavidez is licking his chops to slide through the ropes on fight night is due to his confidence. This is for good reason. His mauling, ravenous style has chewed up and stopped 24 of his 28 professional opponents. And as a nifty bi-product of his high octane style, Benavidez has managed to endear himself to a very action-hungry fanbase.

Keeping in tune with this same energy, The Monster foresees another “sensational” knockout victory in this next encounter.

“I’m definitely going to knock out Oleksandr Gvozdyk, I feel great at this weight!”


Despite how positively Benavidez feels about himself, he still has to glove up and prove it come June 6. So, let’s see what the verdict for Benavidez is after he and Gvozdyk submit to a trial by combat. If he proves to be the goods, this will stand as one of his best and probably the most high-profile prizefights of his career.
