WATCH: Rob Tebbutt tips David Benavidez to score a late stoppage against Caleb Plant

Our resident Boxing expert takes a look at two big fights playing out in the United States this weekend, including Benavidez v Plant, and highlights where the betting value can be found in each of them.

David Benavidez (2/7) v Caleb Plant (5/2)

Kicking off with a huge fight stateside, as David Benavidez and Caleb Plant tussle for the WBC 'interim' super-middleweight title, in a fight that everybody is looking forward to.

David Benavidez, 'The Mexican Monster', loves to come forward and let his hands go - he is physically very strong and is a really good combination puncher.

Caleb Plant on the other hand is so slick, he likes to fight on the outside, shows superb movement and possesses a really good jab, and I really think this is going to be a cracker.

I expect it to go into the second half of the fight - beyond six rounds - but like many, many other David Benavidez fights, I feel he will get yet another late stoppage.

He will grind Caleb Plant right down in my opinion, so my play for this fight is for David Benavidez to win by 'KO, TKO or Disqualification', between 'Rounds 7-12', which you can get at 7/5.

Or if Caleb Plant, with that tricky, awkward and crafty style of his can last the distance then, given the volume of punches that David Benavidez will throw, there could be value in the Mexican to win the fight 'by Decision' at 4/1.

Remember, Caleb Plant has only ever been beaten by Canelo Alvarez late on in their fight, so if you fancy him to score a judges' decision, then he is available at 5/1 to do so.

Jose Carlos Ramirez (1/10) v Richard Commey (11/2)

Over in Fresno, California, in the early hours of Sunday morning, it's the return of the former unified super-lightweight champion Jose Carlos Ramirez, as he takes on former lightweight champion Richard Commey.

We all know what Jose Ramirez is going to do - he is going to come forward, let his hands go, be very busy and punch in huge volume, and really pressurise an opponent who is 36-years-old now.

He has had a long, hard career, he is coming to the tail-end of his career now, and he is naturally the smaller man, so how do I see the fight playing out?

Well, I really like the look of Jose Ramirez winning this one by stoppage - you can get him at 11/5 to win inside the distance, or if you are looking for that additional value, then the California-native is 15/4 to win between 'Rounds 7-12'.
