Watched the last 3 and it's still pretty much a shut out, with Briscoe typically giving plenty to every round just not quite enough to nick them.
Until the 7th, when he actually is winning it and really piles it on but again it once again just isn't enough. Right at the end they're both swinging and Bennie turns right onto a right hook.
Briscoe is always rated as a good win, despite having lots of losses on his slate.
Anytime I've seen him he always pushes his opponent, always gives the opponent hell and nobody stops Benny Briscoe, not Monzon, not Griffith, not Hagler and not Valdez on the two other occasions he tries.
But he not only stops him here, when Bennie gets up he really isn't fit to continue , he can barely hold his head up, which says a lot about that right hook.
Valdez was a fighter who Monzon supposedly ducked for a few years and it's no surprise, he's a quality fighter and clearly a dangerous fighter. This fight saw him lift the vacant WBC which forced the fight and he went on to give Monzon everything he could handle over 2 bouts before he retired.
