There was a collective sigh of relief from the best super middleweights in the world when rampaging pressure fighter David Benavidez decided to move up for a light heavyweight matchup against former WBC champ Oleksandr Gvozdyk on June 15.

The 12-round bout takes place at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas and will air on Prime Video. It will serve as the co-main event ahead of the WBA lightweight championship fight between Gervonta Davis and Frank Martin.

Known as “The Mexican Monster”, Benavidez (28-0, 24 KOs) has been causing havoc at 168 pounds since turning professional in August 2013. However, despite having held the WBC title twice in this weight class, the 27-year-old from Phoenix, Arizona, has been unable to procure an undisputed title fight with division king Canelo Alvarez.

Gvozdyk (20-1, 16 KOs) is a classy boxer-puncher from Ukraine. The 37-year-old veteran took bronze at the London 2012 Olympics and was a member of the same team as boxing greats Oleksandr Usyk and Vasiliy Lomachenko. In 2018, he defeated Adonis Stevenson for the WBC title before losing a unification fight against Artur Beterbiev 10 months later. He was out of the ring for three years but has returned with three straight wins.

The Sporting News will provide a full report on Benavidez’s light heavyweight debut and results from the rest of the card.

Davis vs. Martin is available on Prime Video in the U.S. Prime Video is available for existing Prime customers and those new to the platform. Subscribers can choose from multiple membership plans with discounts available for students.

Prime also offers a free 30-day trial.
