Alvarez has been the star of the division since the time he chose to remain in the 168 lbs weight class. New off a triumph over Avni Yildirim, the Mexican will take on Billy Joe Saunders next. Be that as it may, double cross boss Benavidez is having none of it.
The previous top dog addressed Premier Boxing Champions live on Instagram, a video which FightHype.com has since transferred on YouTube. About Alvarez, the undefeated star said, “I don’t know man, he never makes reference to my name. He referenced, he discusses every other person aside from me, you know?”
This remark from Benavidez showed his genuine interpretation of the P4P hotshot. The two have a concise history, with Benavidez needing the battle for some time. Also, this competition developed when the WBC added the super-middleweight belt to Canelo Alvarez’s battle against Callum Smith.
Therefore, Alvarez presently holds the belt Benavidez lost. Thusly, there is a competition fermenting between the two fighters. Notwithstanding this, we may not will see them battle this year as Alvarez has plans to turn into the undisputed boss, and Benavidez doesn’t have a belt.
David Benavidez claims he will battle anybody in the division
The undefeated American didn’t stop at blaming Canelo for dodging. He brought up that he will battle anybody to demonstrate his value. Benavidez additionally shut down gossipy tidbits about his edginess to get a major battle.
He said, “But a few group need to say I’m frantic for the battle, I’m not frantic for the battle. I’m not frantic for no cash. I’m frantic to show the world I am the best.” Benavidez at that point named Edgar Berlanga, Jermall Charlo, Caleb Plant, and Canelo on his hit-list.
This remark showed that Benavidez needs to demonstrate his value in the division. He emphasized this by saying, “I simply need to show the world I’m the awesome. I simply need the chance to show the world I’m the best.” If Benavidez makes the battle against Caleb Plant straightaway and wins, he may get a shot at Alvarez later in the year.
