Pacquiao Vs. Mosley Results: Jose Benavidez Jr. Beats James Hope In Five Rounds

Jose Benavidez Jr. (10-0, 9 KO) took on James Hope (6-7-1, 4 KO) on the Showtime Extreme Red Carpet coverage of the Manny Pacquiao vs. "Sugar" Shane Mosley undercard. In his live coverage of the event at Bad Left Hook, Scott Christ called Benavidez his number one prospect in boxing.

Benavidez came out looking to make it a quick night, throwing hard straight right hands, but Hope was ready to make it a fight and still managed to land a few right hands and jabs of his own to earn Benavidez's respect. In the second round Hope managed to bloody the nose of Benavidez but began to showboat and Benavidez started to open up with big shots to the head and body. As Benavidez turned it up he repeatedly hurt Hope and had him on the verge of going out. Round three saw more of the same as Hope was barely hanging on while Benavidez crushed him with power shots.

It became a rinse and repeat fight as Benavidez drove power shots into Hope and completely controlled the action until round 5 as Hope was taking big shots and not doing anything offensively and the referee was forced to jump in and stop the fight.
