Robert García believes that Canelo Álvarez will fight with David Benavídez and Gvozdyk is the key – La Opinion

Robert García, famous Mexican trainer, believes that Saúl ‘Canelo’ Álvarez will fight with David Benavídez in September and Oleksandr Gvozdyk – the Mexican Monster’s next rival – It will be the key to deciding whether the man from Guadalajara will face him once and for all or not.

In an interview with Izquierdazo, García explained that Gvozdyk is managed by Eddy Reynoso and canelo Álvarez’s sparring partner for some yearsso his experience in the ring with Benavídez could help him know if they have a chance to beat him.

“It is something that surprised us (the fight with Munguía) for the reason that Canelo had been saying for a long time that he did not want to fight with Mexicans and since Munguía is obviously Mexican, so obviously it gives me hope, I think that at To do that he already has the plan to fight with Benavídez. Another thing that I noticed a little in favor of if we are going to fight, is that Benavídez’s next fight is against Gvozdyk, who is a sparring partner of Canelo and if I’m not mistaken, it is directed and promoted by Eddy Reynoso. So all that gives me an indication that now we are going to see Canelo’s fight against Benavídez for September,” he said.

“I think the most important thing is Benavídez’s next rival, he is a boy who has been Canelo’s sparring partner for the last two or three years if I’m not mistaken and his career is managed by Reynoso, so it can be the first part for Let’s hope that this fight is going to happen. Because if they are going to work together, bringing the rival to Benavídez will even help him for some advice (…) or he can tell him ‘don’t take the risk, that bastard is a monster, don’t even take the risk of fighting with him’. I think it’s a sign that they are thinking about doing that fight in the future, I think that way. And the way things are going, he is already going to fight with a Mexican and now Benavídez is fighting with Canelo’s sparring partner and a fighter led by Eddy Reynoso, I think it will happen,” he added.

It should be noted that for more than two years David Benavídez has sought to attract the attention of the four-division Mexican champion, but 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 not enforced the regulations to order the fight either.

Mauricio Sulaimán, 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 would 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 will be Canelo Álvarez’s rival on May 4, so that fight is far from happening.

For his part, David Benavídez, interim WBC super middleweight champion, defeated Demetrius Andrade by technical knockout in the sixth round and will now move up to 175 pounds. The Mexican Monster He has a record of 28 wins, 24 of them on the fast track and no setbacks cas a professional.
