Apparently boxing was LIT last night — you had Andre Dirrell’s uncle throwing the craziest post-fight cheap shot ever on Showtime, while Premier Boxing Champions aired an action-packed brawl between David Benavidez and Rogelio Medina.
As you can see below, Benavidez, the 20-year-old they call “El Bandera Roja”, earned a shot at the vacant WBC Super Middleweight title after landing a million punches in a row to Medina’s skull for an eighth-round TKO:

You probably won’t be shocked to learn Benavidez has won 10 consecutive fights via KO after seeing that.
Taking a look at the other clips PBC uploaded on social, we’re not quite sure how Medina lasted eight rounds — dude was getting rocked all night:

It’s safe to say I made the wrong call spending the night with the Marlins and Dodgers.
