The Four-Minute Feature Will Air on Tonight’s ShoBox Telecast Headlined by Brandun Lee Squaring Off Against Samuel Teah
SHOWTIME Sports released a video feature that takes viewers inside the minds of undefeated two-time super middleweight world champion David Benavidez and dangerous veteran Ronald Ellis as they prepare for their main event showdown this Saturday night, March 13 live on SHOWTIME at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT from Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn., in a Premier Boxing Champions Event.
“I won in impressive fashion. I stopped a person that nobody had ever stopped before, but at the end of the day I was still walking away without my title,” says the 24-year-old Benavidez of his last fight against Alexis Angulo in which he lost his WBC Super Middleweight World Title on the scale. “It seems like the only person that can beat me is myself.”
“Every fight, I’m an underdog,” says Ellis, who calls this fight the biggest of his career. “People that got no expectations for me in this fight, just tune and in they’re going to see that I’ve been working my whole life for this. He’s a man just like I am and I’ve got to shut everybody up. Underdogs turn into legends.”
Saturday’s main event is a 12-round WBC Super Middleweight Title Eliminator that will set the winner up for a world title opportunity. The SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING® telecast also features two under-25 lightweight rising stars Isaac Cruz and Matías Romero in a 12-round WBA Lightweight Title Eliminator. A 10-round super welterweight affair between Terrell Gausha and Jamontay Clark will open the telecast on SHOWTIME.
The four-minute video feature will air on tonight’s ShoBox: The New Generation® telecast (9 p.m. ET/PT) headlined by fast-rising prospect Brandun Lee looking to extend his knockout streak to 13 against the toughest test of his career, Samuel Teah.
