Floyd Mayweather proposes that Terence Crawford and David Benavídez face each other after Canelo’s refusal – La Opinion

Boxing legend Floyd Mayweather Jr. proposed that Terence Crawford and David Benavídez face each other after Saúl ‘Canelo’ Álvarez’s refusal to fight them for the undisputed super middleweight championship.

In an interview with Fight Hype, Mayweather He doesn’t know if the weight difference will be much. for Crawford, but he believes that it makes sense for him to face Benavídez because at the end of the day he would be moving up to 168 pounds.

“He’s super, super skilled, a very talented fighter (Crawford). And he was thinking that if he is willing to go up to 168 to fight Canelo, and if Benavídez can’t fight Canelo, then let Benavídez and Crawford fight between them. I think that If they are both chasing the same fighter and they can’t get that fight, then let them fight each other.“, said.

I don’t know if it’s much of a weight difference, but I raise this possibility. because Benavidez is trying to fight Canelo, and I know Crawford has also been trying to fight Canelo. “Both of them have tried a lot to get that fight with Canelo and they have not succeeded,” he added.

For more than two years, David Benavídez has sought in every way possible 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 World Boxing Council (WBC) has also not enforced the regulations to order the fight, so the body is expected to force the fight in September.

Instead, after defeating Errol Spence Jr., Terence Crawford He expressed his desire to go up three categories to face the Mexican for his undisputed super middleweight title.. Although some experts in the sport predict that Bud will be at a disadvantage and will not be able to defeat the man from Guadalajara, others believe that size will not be a problem because the American has the necessary skills to beat Canelo Álvarez on his own turf, but the Mexican made it clear that he will not fight with him.

For now, the Mexican Monster will move up to 175 pounds to fight for the WBC interim title against Oleksandr Gvozdyk in June, while Bud Crawford has no opponents or date for his next fight, so The idea of ​​Floyd Mayweather doesn’t make much sense right now.
