The two-time champion took things up a notch by stating the plan is to give Sweethands a beating he will not forget. So, fans should not be surprised to hear Benavidez emphasize why a knockout is important during an interview with Stephen A. Smith on ESPN First Take.

“Personally, for me, I would not be satisfied in myself, in my performance, if I don’t get a knockout. This is just how deep this beef goes between me and this guy. I really want to make him pay for everything he said about me, and I definitely want to make him remember me for the rest of his life.”

This fight has fireworks written all over it. Both fighters will carry into the ring a high level of contempt for one another. Fans can catch all the action live on Showtime PPV in Las Vegas at the MGM Grand.
