In a wild, back-and-forth fight from the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nev., David Benavidez became boxing’s youngest world champion at 20 years of age with a split-decision victory over rugged contender Ronald Gavril from Romania.

It was a very fast-paced affair from the start, with Gavril’s accuracy allowing him to dictate the pace at times while Benavidez’s strength, size, and power allowed him to have success of his own. Gavril came on very strong in the middle of the fight, only to see Benavidez turn up the tempo in the championship rounds.

The night of Friday, July 19 will likely be stuck in Mickey Bey’s head for quite a while.

Facing off with the always-rugged John Molina Jr. inside of the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, Bey had boxed an excellent fight over the course of nine and a half rounds before a barrage of punches from Molina had him in trouble.

Despite still standing on his feet, referee Vic Drakulich would jump in to stop the fight with a little over a minute remaining, granting Molina with the improbable comeback victory while Bey was dealt his first defeat.

In the post-fight aftermath, a frustrated Bey expressed his displeasure with both Drakulich’s officiating throughout the contest as well as his opinion of what he felt was a premature stoppage.

Speaking with Bey’s trainer Floyd Mayweather Sr. after the match, he too expressed his frustration but was unsure whether or not Drakulich reacted too fast in granting Molina with the TKO victory.
