Odds provided by Bovada.
Benavidez is the heavy favorite in this bout, and he should be as a two-time super middleweight champion. Ellis feels disrespected as a fighter and he’s hungry to get a win on Saturday night. However, Benavidez is too skilled and well-rounded for Ellis to handle at the end of the day. His speed and power are unmatched and he’s undefeated for a reason. Benavidez takes the W in this one.
