Jose Benavidez, father and coach of David benavidez, revealed the strategy they would use to fight against Saúl “Canelo” Álvarez, after hours of analyzing their contentions.
“” I study very carefully everything so that one day David benavidez can cope with CaneloHe is a very dangerous man. We have to do our homework and study its flaws in order to exploit them, ”he revealed in an interview with Fighthub. “Everyone fights incorrectly, they just think about going and moving without getting hit. We would use that jab to push him back. “
David, who was super middleweight champion for the CMB, has asked for months a match with Canelo or for a world title, after his belt was stripped for problems outside the ring after being arrested in possession of drugs.
Although he later regained the 168-pound championship, he did not make the weight in his contest against Roamer Alexis Angulo, so again it was withdrawn.
Now he comes from knocking out in March of this year Ronald ellis in the eleventh round and will rise again to the ring on August 28 against Jose Uzcategui.
“We will try to go like this to break the rhythm of his blows,” he said. “Canelo moves forward with his feet and needs room to land power shots, so Benavidez it will be there and it will go backwards. Many do not punish the body either and that is what we will do ”.
Future of Saul
Canelo Alvarez is in negotiations with the team of Caleb Plant, after they fell for a moment and then came back.
The intention of the boxer from Guadalajara is to become the unified champion of 168 pounds and, for this, he needs to defeat Plant, who is the monarch by the FIB, while the Mexican has those of the WBC, WBA Y OMB.
At the time, Saul talked about moving up to 175 pounds to face one of the champions in that division, so the option to fight against David benavidez something distant looms.
