Super middleweight David Benavidez extended his unbeaten record to 21-0-(18), at the AT and T Stadium in Arlington, Texas on Saturday, scoring a second round tko win over J’Leon Love, 24-3-1-(13).

 

The heavy handed Benavidez wobbled Love with a left hook in the opening round and kept up the pressure in the second session by driving Love back and continuing to rain in combinations until the referee, Laurence Cole had seen enough and stepped in to stop the bout after 1.14 of round two.

 

Speaking after the fight Benavidez said: “It’s a dream come true to fight on this stage in front of these fans. These fans give me the motivation to get up every day and go the extra mile.”

 

Benavidez added: “I expected to knock him out, but when I hit him with the first good shot, I knew he wasn’t going to last,”.

 

Love protested the stoppage afterwards stating: “He was getting his shots off, but I don’t think I was taking too much punishment. I wasn’t out of the game completely but he did catch me with a couple good shots.”

 

Benavidez will now target WBC Super Middleweight Champion Anthony Dirrell, who was ringside.
