Comments

Masterful performance by the hugely underrated Benitez, who absolutely deserves to have his name mentioned in the same revered tones as Duran, Leonard, Hearns and Hagler.

Wilfred edged some rounds, dominated others, but was nearly always one step ahead of Roberto. His wonderful blend of natural reflexes and pinpoint counter punching was in full display, augmented by a greater degree of physical strength than previously seen. Despite a 6 year veteran of elite level world championship competition Benitez, at still only 23 years of age, was still physically maturing.
