This past July, Donelei Benedetto,
3-0-1 (0), scored something of an
upset when he won a close but
unanimous decision, 77-75 x 3, over
the more experienced Dustin Long.
Now Long, 6-4-2 (4) and the reigning
Tennessee state champion, will get a
chance to redeem himself, when they
rematch on November 12 at Happy
Valley High School in Elizabethon,
And the stakes have been raised, as
this time the vacant World Boxing
Federation (WBF) North America
Cruiserweight title will be on the
Long acquired notoriety in 2019 when
he knocked out Marsellos Wilder in
Las Vegas, on the undecard of
Wilder´s older brother Deontay´s WBC
World Heavyweight title defense
against Luis Ortiz.
Benedetto has not boxed on a big
stage like that, but will be
confident that he can win again.
