By Sean Jones: Sebastian
The Towering Inferno Fundora says he perspectives David Benavidez as already the “king of 168,” even with out conquering undisputed top notch middleweight champion Canelo Alvarez.
The truth that Canelo has proven no willingness to combat Benavidez (26-0, 23 KOs) type of routinely makes him the King of the 168-lb department through default.
When you`ve were given a four-belt champion that lacks the self assurance to combat a younger lion like Benavidez, it routinely makes him the number one man withinside the weight class.
It could be high-quality if Canelo will inclined to fall on his sword and combat the younger king Benavidez in order that he can take the baton from him earlier than his profession is going stomach up like Gennadiy Golovkin, however that doesn
t appear to be its going to happen. Canelo isn
t inquisitive about combating Benavidez, and hes already discovered a handy excuse now no longer to stand him
ll see approximately that one. Thats a 50-50 for me,” stated Sebastian Fundora to ESNEWS approximately David Benavidez in opposition to IBF, WBC & WBO mild heavyweight champion Artur Beterbiev. “David is sharp. I suppose he
s the king of 168. Just supply him the chance. Give him the chance, and hell win it all,” stated Fundora.
“I could have a hassle with the boxing companies in the event that they allowed Benavidez to move in there with GGG,” stated Roy Jones Jr at the Porter Way Podcast. “First of all, you`ve were given a younger lion throwing rattling close to one hundred punches according to round.
“You had a difficult time surviving in opposition to a man this is throwing 55 & 60 according to round. Are you going to position him in with a man [Benavidez] this is throwing one hundred according to round? That is larger than him, taller than him, and that Canelo doesn`t even need to combat.
“You were given to speak to him approximately that. There
s loads of factors incorrect with boxing,” stated Jones whilst requested why Canelo doesnt need to combat Benavidez. “There`s lots of distinct methods to mention no.
“You fought the best Mexican boxer of all time, you fought his son, and now you
ve were given every other Mexican [Benavidez] over there which you dont need to combat?
“You have a majority of these different human beings you combat, and you
re pronouncing you dont need to combat every other Mexican. Are you kidding me? You don`t need to take that gamble to look who’s the best.
s [Canelo] were given to be surrounded through threats, otherwise he aint going to do it,” stated Jones.
