I think it would be a very good fight just for five or six rounds, then later Canelo would start to destroy Benavidez until knocking him out, “he explained Robert Garcia in interview for Fight Hub. “But the first four or five rounds I think would be great because Benavidez he’s fast and strong and he’s fearless so I think he’ll give him some really good rounds and that’s where the fans would be excited, the fans would see that Canelo is hit, cut, but I think eventually Canelo I would win ”.
