David Benavidez record

Arizona-born Benavidez has an impressive unbeaten record as a pro boxer, compiling a 28-0 record with an impressive 24 of those victories coming inside the distance.

He made his pro debut at the tender age of 16, and during the early years of his career, he was a prolific winning machine, claiming notable victories over the likes of Rollin Williams and Ronald Gavril as he rose to prominence.

In the past four years, Benavidez has gone from strength to strength, seeing off Anthony Dirrell, Kyrone Davis and David Lemieux when he won the vacant WBC interim super middleweight title.

His last two appearances in the ring have seen him victorious over Caleb Plant in Vegas in March 2023 and then, most recently, when he defeated Demetrius Andrade last November.

Oleksandr Gvozdyk record

Ukrainian star Gvozdyk has won 20 of his 21 fights, with 16 of those 20 wins coming via knockout.

At 37, he is 10 years older than Benavidez and is the former WBC and lineal light-heavyweight champion, having held that crown between 2018 and 2019.

Before that, Gvozdyk represented Ukraine at the Olympics in London in 2012, winning a bronze medal, and as his career took off, he became a true force to be reckoned with when seeing off Nadjib Mohammedi for the WBC-NABF light-heavyweight title in April 2016.

Further impressive victories followed over Yunieski Gonzalez, Craig Baker and Adonis Stevenson, amongst others, over the course of the next couple of years before Gvozdyk suffered his only pro defeat so far, losing to Artur Beterbiev when he relinquished his WBC light-heavyweight title in October 2019.

He has since bounced back by beating Josue Obando, Ricards Bolotniks and Isaac Rodrigues in his three outings last year and looks in good shape for his big clash with Benavidez.
