Without Canelo in the picture, this is David Benavidez’s plan, according to his manager

Sin Canelo en el panorama, este es el plan de David Benavidez, según su manejador

Without him Canelo in the near panorama, David benavidez will have to contest the interim super middleweight title of the World Boxing Council (WBC) before one of the first ten classified and the first offer will be for Jermall charlo, assured Sampson lewkowicz, promoter of David.

Saúl “Canelo” Álvarez was authorized by the WBC to contest, probably in May, the body’s cruiser championship held by Ilunga Makabu. For this reason, the super middleweight title of CMB, what’s wrong with it Saul, it will be out of circulation for a good part of the year.

Faced with that panorama, Sampson lewkowicz, promoter of Benavidez requested the body to open an interim championship, and that David be one of the fighters who dispute it. In that scenario, David lemieux would be the first candidate according to the ranking. Nevertheless, Sampson he seeks the greatest benefit for all and does not believe that the Canadian is the right one.

Lemieux, I think we are going to have problems with him, ”he said. Lewkowicz in an interview with LEFT PUNCH during the sessions of the WBC Convention. “He left Golden boy because he believed it was worth millions. Unfortunately, it is not pay-per-view. And if not, the money will be very little and I do not think I will accept ”.

Thus, they will search among the top ten classified for the right rival and Charlo could be a great option. Even to fight on a date as significant for Mexicans as the weekend of May 5.

“Be careful that it is not May”, considered the promoter. “Because if Charlo he accepts the fight, it is the first one to be offered, it will be on May 5, if he accepts the fight ”.

In case it is not Charlo they will be looking to make the interim 168-pound title fight in March or April. This, after Red flag take a vacation after your fight the week before.

“March or April can be,” he added. Sampson. “He just fought and is on vacation. Let’s go one by one, because you have the right Benavidez to be according to what they are going to pay. Benavidez you must win what you always win. If it is with Charlo there will be the possibility of it being PPV and it will be fruitful for everyone ”.

They can’t force Canelo to fight Benavidez

The moment that lives Canelo in the boxing world, ranks him as the best pound for pound and he chooses where and with whom to fight. So think Sampson lewkowicz, who recognized that the Canelo you are not required to fight with David Benavidez, but he has faith that it will happen next year.

“It is definitely true, but we cannot force a great champion to fight him with his immediate mandate,” he said. Lewkowicz. “He has the right to choose at this time because of his status, but I am sure that in 2022 it will happen.”

He didn’t think Canelo was for the cruiserweight title

Sampson lewkowicz assures that at no time did he think that Canelo asked to go for the cruise scepter that he has Ilunga Makabu. He adds that there were never talks with Eddy reynoso, handler of Canelo, to talk about the possible fight between Canelo and David Benavidez.

Eddy makes extravagant decisions that have paid off ”, he considered Sampson. “But it is a very dangerous fight, the day of the fight there will be a 15-20 pound difference.”

Made reference to Manny pacquiao, which from the smallest weights reached the super welterweight. Nevertheless, Lewkowicz made it clear that in heavier divisions, such as what he does Canelo with his walk in various divisions, he is different and dangerous.

Manny It started down but when we talk about heavyweights Ilunga Makabu it’s going to be over 210 pounds, “he warned Sampson. “And I calculate that Canelo it does not reach 195, if you want to fight on a cruise ship, to be historic you must do 200 ”.

Lewkowicz I would not agree that the fight between Canelo and Makabu It is done with an agreed weight. If an agreement is reached on the agreed weight, he warned that the criticism for the Mexican will be many and he will lose more than he can gain.

“The catchweight is something that Mexicans are not going to forgive and they are going to lose more than they are going to win, I think,” he warned. Sampson. “If he is catchweight, he may be dehydrated (the rival) and he can beat him. If it is at 200 pounds, the correct weight of the cruiser, I see it difficult and very dangerous ”.

On the other hand, Sampson lewkowicz does not know why the Canelo He has failed in Mexico to earn all the respect of the fans, when he has shown ample quality and superiority in the ring.

“I see that here in Mexico it has been difficult for him to get respected as a great boxer,” he said. “For me he is number one at the moment, many compare him and make him the best in the history of Mexican boxing.”
