Benavidez doesn’t want Jake Paul: “I’ve been fighting for 10 years, give me a normal fight!”


Two-time world super middleweight champion (up to 76.2 kg) David “El Bandera Roja” Benavidez (26-0, 23 KOs) from the USA is losing patience in endless anticipation of fights against the top opposition in this division and will probably soon run away to light heavyweight weight (up to 79.4 kg). As his father-coach said earlier, there you can try to get meetings with champions Artur Beterbiev and Dmitry Bivol or Gilberto Ramirez.

“I’ve been a pro for 10 years and I want a fucking big fight! It’s just that I don’t earn much, I want some kind of cool fight, so that it’s 50/50, – Red Bandera loses patience. – I’m ready for any challenge. If this is a title fight, I want to earn that title. All these fights are 50/50 guaranteed. Give me a challenge! I want to prove to the world that I am the best.”

David says that he respects daredevil YouTuber Jake Paul (5-0, 4 KOs), but does not want to fight him now, even if they offer and promise a large fee.

“I don’t think that’s what I need right now,” Benavidez said.

He was already tired of repeating the names of the absolute champion in 76.2 kg Saul Alvarez, WBC champion in 72.6 kg Jermall Charlo and ex-champion Caleb Plant. But there were no battles with them, and there is no gap in this part yet.

In general, says David’s father, “this is the end of Canelo – the son will finish him in seven rounds.” And what? May be.
