David Benavidez wins interim WBC title with TKO of David Lemieux – Boxing News


GLENDALE – David Benavidez returned to his hometown and took care of business quickly, the two time former super middleweight champion flooring top contender David Lemieux twice in the first two rounds to capture the interim WBC world super middleweight championship Saturday night on Showtime from Gila River Arena .

Benavidez, now based out of Seattle, is still beloved in greater Phoenix, where he was born and raised, and the 25-year-old star gave his fans the show they wanted to see. He wobbled Lemieux, a former middleweight champion himself, with a left hook in the first round. Then he unleased a flurry of punches with Lemieux ducking for cover, saved only by the end of the first round bell.

In the second round, Benavidez sent Lemieux through the ropes with another left, and the crowd roared, having already risen to its feet anticipating an exciting finish. Lemieux’s corner called for a fight stoppage that came at 1 minute, 31 seconds of the third round.

“What really makes me happy and motivates me a lot is I can bring 10,000 people into this stadium and they all came to see me,” Benavidez said. “They are all left excited and happy. I’m able to give the fans the fights they want to see and the action that they want to see. ”
