Do you think Ellis is underrated or Benavidez is overrated?

Jarod Killian's picture

Both. I think all Benavidez has going for him is punching power and size. I'm really not impressed with his abilities and he seems to telegraph his punches which will be trouble in the future. He's not the most disciplined fighter out there either he's already been caught using coke a couple of times. Anyways, I view Benavidez as the weakest link maybe along with Munguia of the current crop of Mexican-American prospects. Obviously, Ryan Garcia is at the top followed by Vergil Ortiz. Benavidez really only has 1 notable name to his resume Dirrell. Other than that he struggled against Gharial and fair play to him he won but it was close enough to warrant a rematch for him to silence any doubts which is already bad especially against the Gharials of the world. IF that would've been against Plant then that's a whole other story.

Ellis is a bit underrated I would say. He's gotten a couple of draws and his one loss was a questionable one against Ware. He was clearly losing against Korobov but let's be real Benavidez is no Korobov at least not in the boxing skills department. Benavidez is more of your typical using size/intimidation and impose on you.

Champion97's picture

I disagree that's all he's got going for him, he's a great offensive fighter, puts combinations together very well, can fight on the inside, can fight at mid range. What do you mean by telegraph his punches? I know about telegraphing a shot from the opponent as it comes at you, but how does a fighter telegraph his own punches? True, he missed the weight against Angulo as well, his discipline is questionable, I don't know if I agree Garcia is obviously at the top, not saying he isn't the best of those prospects, very good win over Campbell, but I wouldn't say definitely. Campbell is likely a better win than Dirrell, but what other notable wins does Garcia have? He was a kid in the first Gavril fight, that was a tough learning fight, but look at the rematch, that was a very one sided fight, he improved a lot from the first fight. I wasn't impressed by Benavidez against Dirrell, his defence was poor, had a weak guard, wasn't moving his head, and he wasn't cutting off the ring, but he was so much bigger than Dirrell, and was so much offensively better, that he still had the momentum for most of the fight, Dirrell couldn't faze him, even when he put him on the ropes and let his hands go. I didn't see Benavidez against Angulo, but he did well to be as dominant as he was against a decent fighter.

Benavidez likely isn't technically as good as Korobov, but I don't see Ellis giving Benavidez a tough fight, I think Benavidez has a lot of offensive skill as well as strength and power.

Jarod Killian's picture

I could see Ellis getting clipped coming in sometime during the fifth round.

Champion97's picture

Prediction.

I don't think Ellis will give Benavidez problems, he beat Korobov, but he was behind, it was an injury that wasn't caused by a punch, I don't think he's on Benavidez's level based on his other fights.

I think Benavidez will push Ellis onto the back foot in the early rounds, will dictate the pace, I think Ellis has the faster hands, he'll throw when Benavidez holds his feet, but he won't be able to hurt Benavidez or faze him, Benavidez will establish his jab at long range, but he won't need to cut off the ring that well to be able to attack Ellis on the ropes, and when he's started to let his hands go, he'll have all the momentum, Ellis won't be able to get his respect or be hard to get to, Benavidez will chip away, and stop him in the mid rounds.

Benavidez crushed Ellis over time, and he is a good boxer, but I think some overrate him. His offense is genuinely great, and he has a nice combo of size/handspeed. However, with the way he wades in to get in range, I think he is eventually going to find a Berchelt-Valdez type fight where he gets made to pay for his defensive flaws. I think he might be able to make it a fun fight for a while but overtime Canelo would pick him apart with counters.

TheUndefeated's picture

Agreed. Yes his offense is certainly impressive. But I think the big question for me is how will he react when someone like Canelo hits him? In many of his fights, including the Ellis fight, he ends up walking forward with seeming impunity because of his confidence no one can hurt him. Has he faced a skilled, big-puncher yet? I think there is a very good chance Canelo folds him in half with body shots and it might not take very long.

Champion97's picture

Good performance from Benavidez, he cut off the ring much better than against Dirrell, his pressure was consistent, he was making Ellis drain his legs, he didn't throw too many shots, wasn't in a rush to stop Ellis, but he broke him down. Benavidez isn't defensively good, and that will cost him sooner or later, I don't know how much defensive work he does in sparring, he has the potential to be harder to hit than we see against an opponent who can't hurt him, and he's offensively brilliant. Benavidez's jab is decent based on some of his other fights, but Ellis out jabbed him, which surprised me. Ellis deserves credit for his heart and athleticism, he did very well to get through the 8th round, he took a lot clean shots, was always under pressure, Benavidez had more and more ring generalship as the fight went on, but Ellis kept throwing back, was there to win.
