Benitez in top shape would have boxed circles around Starling.

Benitez easy UD.

I think this is a great fight an not an easy win for Benitez. Starling was one of the hardest fighters to hit clean and I thought he was more aggressive than Benitez.

I think Benitez wins this one, but it's not as one sided as many think.

This one is hard.

Two counter punchers here. Neither guy was comfortable taking the lead here so this would be a situation with alot of probing and posing, each guy waiting for the other to make a mistake. Benitez has a height and reach advantage. And IMO his hands were faster. Starling was also one of the greatest all time posers in the game, too often sitting back to admire what he just did.


Not alot of clean shots land here. But Benitez does more work and he's more accurate, in taking a UD in an ugly, boring fight.


Yeah thats pretty much how I'd see it too.

Starling would crack me up with some of the things he did-like that high leg, kick stomp move. What the hell was that all about?
