Davis (16-2-1) has stepped in for Jose Uzcategui, who was withdrawn after failing a drugs test. The 27-year-old caught the eye by holding two-time super-middleweight champ Anthony Dirrell to a split decision draw in his first ever fight at 168 pounds in February, before a slightly hairy unanimous decision victory over Martez McGregor in September.
He's certainly not afraid to come out swinging, but Benavidez (24-0) represents a major step in quality. The 24-year-old is The Ring magazine's top-ranked boxer at 168 pounds, and he'll want to put on a show in front of his home crowd, and with his brother Jose on the undercard. There's also the small matter of a potential shot at Canelo.
There's plenty at stake, so follow our guide below to watch a Benavidez vs Davis live stream online from anywhere.
