Final Words

Benavidez and Plant have been trading insults for years, but now their feud has reached the mat in an epic super middleweight grudge match. Tune in on Showtime Saturday, March 25 to witness this must-see battle as the winner could potentially face Canelo Alvarez in a highly anticipated unification bout.

As expected, this match was closely contested from the start. But Benavidez began to close in and take control of the contest in the sixth round, landing several impressive shots including a left hook and body shot that signaled his potential threat.

He scored several more strikes in the seventh, including a short right counter that pushed Plant back and then an aggressive left hook that further set Plant back. All throughout this fight, Plant struggled to keep his balance and couldn't put any pressure on him; as such, Clark capitalized with all of his clinch work.

In the ninth round, Benavidez unleashed an intense eight-punch combo that saw him pummel Plant multiple times and send him sprawling onto the canvas. He then finished off with a fierce flurry that sent Plant back down on his heels and severely injured him.

Despite being hesitant in the early rounds, Plant eventually found his rhythm and used his jab to keep Benavidez honest, doing an impressive job of defending himself. In the eighth he threw some more shots before taking time in the ninth as he delivered more body blows to keep Benavidez off balance.

Referee Bayless made an unfavorable call, but Benavidez emerged victorious. Plant had been given more leniency earlier in the round and appeared to have benefitted from it; however, Benavidez capitalized on this with his powerful attack.

Benavidez has emerged as a formidable opponent, and his victory over Plant will give him the motivation to challenge Canelo next year. Despite all his talent, dominance, and devastating knockout wins, he still lacks that signature victory that would put him on everyone's radar in boxing.
