Benitez was hard to hit clean by anyone prior to Hamsho, although Hamsho was a bad pick for Benitez to fight. A natural big guy who swarmed. I get Juan Roldan would have been tough for Benitez also had he fought him. Benitez moved back down to 154 after that, had that injury to his ankle and just diminished. The Hilton knockout was brutal.
