Former two-time world champion David Benavidez (24-0, 21 KOs) kept his perfect ring record intact with an 11th-round technical knockout victory against veteran Ronald Ellis (18-2-2, 12 KOs) in their WBC Super Middleweight Title Eliminator main event on Saturday night’s SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING telecast from Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn., in a Premier Boxing Champions event. Benavidez pretty much had his way as he teed off Ellis.The Referee finally waved off the fight at 2:03 of the eleventh.

In the co-main event, Isaac Cruz (21-1-1, 15 KOs) of Mexico City earned a unanimous decision victory over Argentina’s Matias Romero (24-1, 8 KOs) in a 12-round WBA Lightweight Title Eliminator. It marked the first time that the 22-year-old Cruz went 12 rounds in his professional career. The judges’ scorecards read 114-113, 115-112 and 118-109
