The American boxer believes that he did not show his full strength in the fight with the Ukrainian.

“I’m glad for this moment. About a month ago I tore the rope in my hand. My hand was injured and I also have a wound near my eye. Still, I said, ‘Screw it, I will fight. .’ I can’t cancel this match.

We still won every round against the big ex-champion. I am happy with this success and happy that I am moving forward. I will continue to dominate this light heavyweight division,” Boxing Scene quoted Benavidez as saying.

We remind you that Alexander Gvozdyk lost to David Benavidez by unanimous decision.
