In a highly anticipated showdown, two undefeated champions, David Benavidez and Demetrius Andrade, are scheduled to face off on Saturday, November 25 at the Michelob ULTRA Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. This bout is set to be a thrilling battle between a former two-time super middleweight champion and a former two-division world champion, and it will be available for fans to watch live on Showtime PPV.

The lead-up to this 12-round battle has been filled with excitement and anticipation. At a press conference hosted at The Conga Room at L.A. Live, both Benavidez and Andrade shared their thoughts and came face to face, giving a glimpse of what fans can expect in this epic showdown.

David Benavidez, based in Las Vegas and holding a record of 27-0 with 23 knockout victories, is a former two-time WBC super middleweight champion. He is coming off a unanimous decision win against Caleb Plant in March, successfully defending his interim WBC 168-pound belt. Benavidez acknowledges the significance of this fight, stating, “This is definitely the biggest fight of my career.”

He commends Demetrius Andrade as a great fighter and expresses his eagerness to face the best in the weight class. “Andrade is one of the best in this weight class,” he added. “I know this isn’t going to be an easy fight, but it’s going to bring out the best in me. I’m a monster for a reason.”

Benavidez also expressed his focus on this fight, saying, “I’m not worried about Canelo Alvarez. I’m worried about Demetrius Andrade. I definitely believe the winner of this fight is the best super middleweight in the world.”

Demetrius Andrade, with an unblemished record of 32-0 and 19 knockouts, made a successful return to the ring in January with a unanimous decision victory over Demond Nicholson after over a year of inactivity. The former two-division world champion from Providence, Rhode Island, is excited about the opportunity presented by this fight. “This is a great opportunity for myself and for David Benavidez to put on a show,” Andrade said. “May the best man win.”

Both fighters are well aware of the significance of this bout, with Andrade describing it as the “Super Bowl of the 168-pound division.” He believes it’s the biggest fight that can be made and emphasizes the clash of styles that will make it a memorable showdown.

Demetrius Andrade also aims to make a statement by conquering the super middleweight division and potentially becoming a three-division world champion. He stresses the importance of this fight in comparison to others, stating, “This is bigger than Canelo. This is way bigger than that. We can’t just sit back and wait for him. David Benavidez vs. Demetrius Andrade is the biggest fight.”

With both fighters highly motivated and focused on victory, this bout promises to be a remarkable event in the world of boxing.
