Most Likely Outcome: Based on the odds, the most likely outcome seems to be a Benavidez victory, possibly by decision or late-round TKO/KO.
Least Likely Outcome: An early round victory for Andrade, especially a TKO/KO in rounds 1 to 3, is seen as highly improbable.
David Benavidez vs Demetrius Andrade Prediction
In his most recent fight on March 25th, David Benavidez (27-0, 23KOs) stepped into the spotlight as a PPV headliner, engaging in a heated twelve-round battle against Caleb Plant, a fellow former super middleweight titlist.
Hailing from Phoenix and now residing in Washington state, the 26-year-old defended his interim WBC super middleweight title in that bout, a title that will once again be up for grabs in his upcoming appearance. Notably, Benavidez stands as one of the three mandatory challengers vying for a shot at the undisputed super middleweight championship.
Andrade (32-0, 19KOs) is set to face his first former titlist in a remarkable 15-year career, a noteworthy fact considering his past as a two-division titleholder.
Hailing from Providence, this skilled southpaw, who represented the U.S. in the 2008 Beijing Olympics, boasts a flawless record of 9-0 in title fights across the junior middleweight and middleweight divisions. It’s worth noting, however, that none of these victories came against a boxer who had previously held a major title of their own.
Andrade is coming off a UD win over journeyman Demond Nicholson. 14 months prior to that Andrade stormed Irish boxer Jason Quigley to win by TKO in the 2nd round. Andrade’s inactivity at times and resume of boxers he’s fought, have given him the wildcard and underdog status entering this bout.
Andrade’s biggest test to date from my perspective was the Liam Willams fight, both fighters showed true grit and at moments the fight was going in Willams’s favor. That being said, Andrade proved he does belong among the best of the division.
I expect to see Andrade’s calculated wildness really test the wits of Benevarze. “Boo Boo” has one of the most awkward fighting styles and he’ll need to show something different against Benavidez’s walk-you-down approach. Andrade should look to use his jab efficiently and keep moving to his best ability here.
Benavidez as always will bring pressure to this fight. One of his trademark moves is catching his opponents while they’re on the move, this is something he should be able to use effectively against Andrade.
Benavidez has never had to deal with the wild types of shots Andrade throws. What will be a real test, is if Andrade connects with a right that Benavidez doesn’t see coming to see how he reacts. I can see both fighters willing to trade in the center, but once Andrade gets a taste of Benavidez’s power this could change the tempo of the fight.
Currently, the prevailing sentiment is that the most compelling option for both men is to go head-to-head in the ring. The victor in this showdown stands to stake a formidable claim as the leading contender to challenge Canelo Alvarez in the near future for the coveted undisputed super middleweight championship.
Supporters of Benavidez’s prospects against Andrade hold firm in their belief that Benavidez’s sheer size, formidable power, and relentless punch output will prove overwhelming for Andrade. Notably, Andrade embarked on his professional journey in the junior middleweight division and only recently transitioned to the super middleweight category.
Conversely, those favoring Andrade’s chances are convinced that his exceptional skills, formidable power, and tactical ring acumen set him apart from any of Benavidez’s previous adversaries.
Benavidez’s stamina will keep the pressure going for 12-rounds, and being the naturally bigger man will work to his advantage.
Pick: David Benavidez

Ideally, the winner here takes on Canelo next. Which could set up a huge Cinco de Mayo fight between Canelo and Benevadez, now that’s the fight to make!
