Phoenix boxing phenom Jose Benavidez Jr.'s next fight, originally scheduled for this Friday at Wildhorse Pass Casino, has been canceled due to an injury, delaying the 19-year-old light welterweight's quest to go to 15-0 on his career.


Benavidez has been fighting with a bad hand for some time, and it turns out he needed surgery on his right hand recently. The entire card has been scrapped.


The fight has been off for some time, apparently. The Arizona Republic's Odeen Domingo has more details and commentary here. Too bad. Boxing is punching and bum hands don't allow you to do that. Here's hoping Benavidez heals well and is back in the ring again soon.
