Tank – Martin and Benavidez – Gvozdyk – Weigh-in Results for PBC PPV

Gervonta ‘Tank’ Davis, the WBA ‘regular’ lightweight champion, tipped the scales at 133.4 lbs, with his challenger Frank Martin coming in at 134.4 pounds during their weigh-in prior to their headline fight set for this Saturday on PBC on Prime Video PPV.

In the co-main event, David Benavidez weighed 174.2 pounds, while former WBC champ Oleksandr Gvozdyk also weighed in at 174.2 pounds for their 12-round battle for the WBC interim 175-lb title. During the face-off, Gvozdyk appeared bigger and more muscular compared to Benavidez, who seemed to have some extra weight around his midsection.

It is unusual to witness Benavidez without a significant size advantage over his opponent, as he typically appears to be in a higher weight division. It will be interesting to see how Benavidez copes with facing someone his size, possessing greater power and more technical skills.

Many fans find the Benavidez-Gvozdyk fight more intriguing than the main event between Tank and Martin because it promises to be a competitive match-up. The event is scheduled to kick off at 8:00 p.m. ET/5:00 p.m. PT this Saturday, June 15th, at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

Regarding Benavidez’s sparring history with Gvozdyk, there is speculation that he may be underestimating his opponent due to their past encounters. The potential of overlooking Gvozdyk is a concern, as Benavidez’s progression in the sport and his ability to adapt to a different weight class are being closely observed.

In the world of boxing, changing weight classes can significantly impact a fighter’s performance and style in the ring. It will be interesting to see how Benavidez handles this transition and whether he can maintain his success in the new weight division.
