Ronald Gavril confident he can take title away from WBC super middleweight champion David Benavidez in their rematch on February 17th. The Romanian native scored a final round knockdown, as well as winning 116-111 on one scorecard but it still wasn’t enough to earn the vacant green strap.
This time around, Gavril has plans on a different outcome when they face off at Mandalay Bay.
“I can’t wait to get into the ring again and take that belt,” said Gavril.
“I learned his game plan quickly during the first fight, I blocked it well then, and I plan to do the same again.”
He continued: “He has fast hands and power, I won’t take that from him, but I am prepared for whatever plan he comes in the ring with.”
“I know I have what it takes to win this time. Preparing for this fight the second time around has been different, training has been more intense, and my team is preparing me to take him out once and for all. I can’t let him win.”
“Some people said I won back in September and were surprised by my performance. I thought it was close, and I thought the knockdown gave me the advantage to win.”
“All I can do is be ready. I don’t think either of us will upset the fans on fight night.”
“I want to thank Floyd Mayweather and Leonard for another opportunity against Benavidez. He’s a great fighter and tough competitor and this will certainly be a great fight,” added Gavril.
