by Adam Baskin: David Benavidez confirmed last night that a fight between him and former two-weight world champion Demetrius Andrade is being negotiated in November.
If it slips out, Benavidez (27-0, 23 KOs) believes a victory over the unbeaten and highly ranked Andrade (32-0, 19 KOs) will help solidify his position in the tournament. World Championship bout against Super Middleweight Champion Canelo Alvarez
It’s hard to predict whether Canelo will be more likely to fight Benaivdez than he is. because he has no opponent to fight And he doesn’t need that match to continue adding to this estimate. $200 million Net income.
Canelo could end up with a fortune of half a billion by the time he retires, as long as Canelo has a strategy of who to face. Can fight until he’s 40+ and ends up with a fortune worth over $500 million.
Benavidez = weight bully
You can understand why Canelo wasn’t in a rush to fight light heavyweight Benavidez. Because that guy should punch at 175, not 168.
If you see his tired appearance weighing on his last 3 bouts in the super middleweight division. It was clear that he should fight at 175, or maybe even a cruiserweight.
It’s killing Benavidez to make the next 168 and that’s why he looks like a zombie from ‘Night of the living dead,’ Put the weight on your latest fight with Caleb Plant.
Benavidez is bigger than light heavyweight champions Artur Beterbiev and Dmitry Bivol, and that tells you he’s fighting outside his weight limits.
Is Benavidez afraid of Morrell Jr?
“I think it’s not ripe yet. To be honest, I think it’s a really good fight. Pay Per View Worthy Especially,” David Benavidez told Fighthype about his clash with WBA super-middleweight champion David Morrell Jr. ‘regular’.
“He is a great fighter. And I’m a great fighter too. Let’s give the fans a great fight,” Benavidez said of Morrell.
Fighting Morrell wouldn’t happen if Benavidez planned to move up to 175 anytime soon, because he couldn’t expect the Cuban fighter to add weight to fight him.
If Benavidez doesn’t want to fight Morrell for obvious reasons. should speak loudly because boxers can already see what is what
They watched Morrell call Benavidez. saying they would take off his shoes if he walked down the streets of Cuba. It was clear that Benavidez did not want to be involved in the fight with Morrell.
“I was so excited. I was like, ‘Man, you’re fighting mate 154’, but I guess Canelo did whatever he wanted. And nobody said anything about that,” Benavidez said of Canelo Alvarez, who picked Jermell Charlo to fight from the junior middleweight division. instead focusing on one of the top contenders at 168, such as Benavidez or Morrell Jr.
“I got an order. [with the WBC at super middleweight] in the past three years And they didn’t talk about it. So I don’t know what it is. My plan is to keep winning and eventually he will have to face me,” Benavidez said of the undisputed 168-pound champion Canelo.
“I think the skill sets match. But I just think Canelo is more used to that weight and more used to boxing. I have no doubt that Charlo will hit Canelo hard, he’s a great fighter. But I feel like Canelo has the advantage, he’s heavier, more comfortable, but it’s going to be a great fight.
“Probably three fights,” Benavidez said when asked how quickly he could get to 175. “I just want these fights to happen. I have worked throughout my career towards inclusion. to fight for the belt It’s almost over, so I can’t go until that fight,” Benavidez said.
