“One never knows, but I would give Benavídez as a favorite in that fight, because of its size, because of its volume. That fight would probably go to decision, but it would give Canelo a tough fight, but you never know, it could be the opposite,” he added.

It should be noted that for more than two years David Benavídez has sought in every possible way to attract the attention of the four-division Mexican champion, but he has never had a response. Although fans and many experts in the sport would like to see this great fight, Canelo Álvarez has not shown any real interest and the WBC has not enforced the regulations to order the fight either.

The president of the WBC had declared that the Guadalajara team and Benavídez’s team were in talks, but that they would not intervene until the month of March when the Mexican American will be mandatory and that they would let the promoters do their job. Shortly after it was announced that the Mexican Monster He will rise to 175 pounds to compete for the organization’s interim title against Oleksandr Gvozdyk and Jaime Munguía emerges as Canelo Álvarez’s favorite for May 4.
