Brandon Bennett talks about latest victory: “I gave him a boxing lesson”
CINCINNATI, Ohio (March 20, 2013) — In his quest towards a world championship, Cincinnati’s Brandon “Untouchable” Bennett picked up another victory Saturday, March 9, bringing him one step closer to the crown. Bennett faced off against Mario Hermosillo at The Hangar in Costa Mesa, Calif., in a six-round bout and dominated him to a unanimous decision victory.
The speedy southpaw of 25 years improved to 15-0 (7 KOs) with the win.
“Brandon did real well,” said Bennett’s trainer Mike Stafford. “Brandon boxed him real good and took his time, he went six rounds and got the unanimous decision.”
The fight was Bennett’s first in eight months, and before that fight last July he was coming off a 15 month layoff.
“He was better conditioned this fight,” Stafford said. “The kid (Hermosillo) was stronger, and he boxed him real good. But Brandon was able to stay away from him and pick his shots.”
With a plan for a more active year, Stafford sees good things to come for his pupil. Bennett is working his way down to 130 pounds, a weight more natural for him, and is looking to campaign at the super featherweight division.
Stafford sees a few more small steps left leading to a big prize. “We’re looking for the next fight maybe fighting an eight-rounder, then eventually for a little (regional) title in three or so more fights. Something that’s going to get him to a world title,” Stafford said.
Bennett is promoted by Cincinnati-based company R&R Promotions — who also promotes Adrien Broner, Rau’shee Warren, and Jamel Herring amongst other notable fighters.
