Prediction,

I think Benavidez wins this, I would not surprised if he stopped Dirrell, I don't think he will, but I think he will be dominant, and Dirrell will take a beating.

Dirrell is being written off, he is old, he was not impressive in his last fight, but he is a lot more experienced than Benavidez, as an amateur and professional, been in against the better fighters, and I don't think Benavidez has fought anyone as good as Dirrell. Dirrell hits hard, Benavidez's chin is questionable, so if Dirrell lands clean, it will be interesting to see how he takes it, and there is hype around Benavidez, he is only 22, if he makes a mistake, gets careless, Dirrell can counter him.

Although Dirrell's experience might be a factor, so might his age, he's 34, Benavidez is 22, so not at his strongest, but he is very big for the weight, and he is not too raw, has been 12 rounds twice, his opposition has not been bad.

I think the output of Benavidez will be too much for Dirrell, the pace he will set, Dirrell can't fight at for 12 rounds, and I think Benavidez can find the target, because although Dirrell has good foot movement, good basic guard, he doesn't move his head, can be static on the ropes, and he is open to body shots, Benavidez is a good body puncher, so he can take advantage of that.

I think Dirrell will move a lot in the early rounds, Benavidez will struggle to pin him down, Dirrell will land the 1,2, change direction, but if Benavidez stalks him, keeps the pressure on, he will close the range as the fight goes on, because Dirrell's movement will slow down.

I think Benavidez will take over the fight in the second half, as Dirrell's output drops, and he slows down, and that stage, Benavidez can cut off the ring and walk him down, and that's when Benavidez can go on the attack and land in high volume, to head and body. If Benavidez can hurt Dirrell with one shot in particular, or Dirrell stops moving completely, Benavidez can stop him, the corner is the worst place to be for Dirrell, against a strong, heavy handed fighter who punches in variety.

I don't think Benavidez will stop Dirrell because I think Dirrell will show more heart in this fight than he has in the past, he has a good chin as well, Dirrell. I don't think Benavidez will find that one shot, and although Dirrell's legs will slow down a lot in the second half, I don't think he will stand still on the ropes for long.

I think this will be a fight with two halves, the first half will be close, Benavidez will dominate the second half, and he will win a UD.

I honestly can't see Dirrell hearing the final bell. Benavidez is a monster. Dirrell is a good boxer but he likes a fight too much for his own good imo. Dirrell may win the first few rounds but it's just a matter of time before Benavidez draws him into a matcho shoot out. I don't think Dirrell has the discipline to outbox Benavidez for 12 rounds. Yildirim is not world class in my opinion and Dirrell made him look much better than he is. He gave Dirrell lots of problems because of how he approached the fight.

I think Dirrell is a declining fighter, reminds me a bit of James Degale in that respect. The fight he had with Eubank is a similar proposition. The difference is Benavidez is better than Eubank and I think he puts Dirrell away.

Benavidez by late rounds. Dirrell is a very good fighter....but Benavidez has the tools to overpower him

I was impressed by Benavidez, wasn't defensively bad for a fighter who was the aggressor almost throughout and was never hurt. Benavidez got caught clean at times, he was made to miss, was countered, but he didn't get frustrated, just kept applying pressure, wasn't being that smart, but he was making Dirrell work, he took Dirrell's power, and as the rounds went on, Dirrell slowed down more, Benavidez got closer, and whenever Dirrell was static on the ropes, Benavidez could tee off on him. I think the stoppage was the right call, Dirrell started to take punishment in round 8, and the cut was bad.

Dirrell is a 2 time world champion, had a good career, but he should retire now, he didn't get beaten up to bad in this fight, but he always seems to get cut in fights, which is a major problem, he has nothing to prove. I think Benavidez is very good, has a lot of potential, the Plant fight might be too soon for him, but that's a great fight, unification, battle of the unbeatens.
