David Benavidez vs Caleb Plant Prediction & Best Bet

While Plant is a talented boxer, he's going up against an undefeated opponent who's been dropping the opposition left and right. Five of Benavidez's last six victories have come by KO/TKO — including each of the last three. It only took him three rounds to knock out the hard-hitting David Lemieux to capture the interim super middleweight title in his last fight.

It's also important to remember that Plant has been finished before. He suffered an 11th-round TKO loss to Canelo Alvarez back in November 2021, losing the IBF super middleweight title in the process. Though he bounced back with a KO win over Anthony Dirrell five months ago, Benavidez won't go down as easily.

Considering how the moneyline doesn't provide the most value, I recommend backing Benavidez to win by KO/TKO at -145. After all, 23 of his 26 career wins have come by knockout while Plant has shown that he's susceptible to being sent to the mat.

It might take a few rounds before it happens, but I fully expect Benavidez to finish yet another challenger.

Bet: David Benavidez by KO/TKO (-145)
