David Benavidez Career
David Benavidez is a rising star in professional boxing, known for his powerful punches and relentless fighting style. He was born in Phoenix, Arizona, in 1996 and grew up in a boxing family.

David turned pro in 2013 at the age of 16 and quickly made a name for himself with his impressive performances in the ring.

In 2017, at the age of just 20, he became the youngest super middleweight champion in boxing history, winning the WBC title with a unanimous decision victory over Ronald Gavril.
