Benavidez worries he’ll get old by the time he gets to Canelo


Ex-world middleweight champion David Benavidez (26-0, 23 KOs) is angry that he went through the WBC line all that was possible, but still did not get the coveted fight with the absolute of this division Canelo Alvarez (58- 2-2, 39 KOs). He says he’ll move up to light heavyweight next year if he doesn’t get Saul or at least Caleb Plant (21-1, 12 KOs).

“I don’t think it was a good fight. It was a real boredom – this is how David described the finale of the Canelo-Golovkin trilogy, and stated that everything would have been different with him in the place of GGG. “It would be a completely different fight. I am taller, stronger. Canelo’s only advantage against me is experience. But the guys that he fought in super middleweight, they are not strong, but some kind of trash.

According to Benavidez, the only really good champion that Saul beat at 76.2 kg was Callum Smith.

“If Canelo doesn’t respect your punch, it will be a problem for you. But I have 26 wins with 23 knockouts, and I definitely have the strength and speed to hold him back and be really effective against him, ”the American is convinced.

“I have been #1 in the WBC for four fights. I just want the chance that I was promised. They said, “Win this qualifier and you’ll fight Canelo.” I fought. Then they said, “Win an interim WBC title and you get Canelo. Damn, what’s the point of all these ratings?” Benavidez said.

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