David Benavidez stops Kyrone Davis in seven

Kyrone Davis tried his best against David Benavidez, but his merciful trainer eventually saved him from himself Saturday night.

Stephen “Breadman” Edwards, Davis’ head trainer, threw in the towel early in the seventh round to prevent Davis from taking more of a beating against the bigger, stronger, better Benavidez at Footprint Center in Phoenix.

Benavidez battered Davis, who is not a natural super middleweight, to his head and body for much of Showtime’s main event, until referee Wes Melton halted the action 48 seconds into the seventh round.

The 24-year-old Benavidez (25-0, 22 KOs) fared much better against a big underdog than his older brother and kept himself in position to fight Mexican superstar Canelo Alvarez early in May.
