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.

Whenever I cross paths with Sampson Lewkowicz, he is typically in good spirits.

I would have to call Lewkowicz, who was born in Uruguay and  now resides in Las Vegas, one of the busiest men in the sport due to his obligations stateside and abroad as a matchmaker, advisor, and promoter.
