David Benavidez will face David Lemieux on Saturday, May 21 at the Gila River Arena in Glendale, Arizona. Here, you will find when, where, and how to watch the Benavidez vs Lemieux fight along with fight cards and predictions.

Benavidez, who had a perfect record of 25-0 with 22 knockouts, had the green belt taken away from him twice: the first time, in 2018, for a failed cocaine test; the second time, in 2020, for failing to make weight for a championship defense against Roamer Alexis Angulo.

Benavidez is still winless and is widely considered to be one of the roughest and most exciting fighters in his weight class, despite the fact that he has a number of weaknesses.

The 33-year-old Lemieux held the IBF version of the 160-pound championship. He was set to face Tureano Johnson on the Canelo-Rocky Fielding card a few months after his victory over Gary O’Sullivan.

Lemieux has a record of 43-4 with 36 knockouts in his professional career. On the other hand, for a number of years, it had been common knowledge that Lemieux’s transition to middleweight was a difficult one.

Benavidez vs. Lemieux Prediction:

Benavidez is going to keep moving forward, but he is going to cut those combinations shorter and take a step back, which will close the window of opportunity for the shorter guy to connect with anything of significance.

Furthermore, Benavidez will vary up his approach with left and right hooks to the body as well as uppercuts to the head, as he has done well in prior fights. Because of this, Lemieux will eventually get too exhausted to continue and the referee will have to step in. Prediction: David Benavidez will win the fight.
