Canelo Alvarez is not going to be preventing his WBC necessary David Benavidez in September because the ‘Mexican Monster’ as his promoter Sampson Lewkowicz had hoped.
The famous person Canelo needs the Dmitry Bivol rematch in September. Alvarez and his promoter Eddie Hearn have repeatedly stated they need a rematch with Bivol (21-0, 11 KOs) subsequent, which is why it’s unusual that Benavidez’s administration made a proposal.
Benavidez’s promoter Lewkowicz informed BOXEO DE COLOMBIA they’ll be preventing David Morrell Jr subsequent. What’s unclear is whether or not Benavidez and his workforce have been ever critically desirous about preventing Canelo subsequent.
It had already been reported that Benavidez signed a three-fight take care of PBC months in the past to combat these three fighters on this order:
1. Caleb Plant – carried out
2. David Morrell Jr
3. Jermall Charlo
David Morrell Jr (9-0, 8 KOs) can be a troublesome combat for Benavidez, and it could possibly be much more problematic than a match in opposition to Canelo would have been.
Morrell has regarded spectacular these days, stopping Yamaguchi Falcão in a primary spherical knockout final April and knocking out Aidos Yerbossynuly within the twelfth spherical final November.
This is perhaps the mistaken type for Benavidez, who regarded unhealthy within the first half of his latest combat in opposition to former IBF tremendous middleweight champion Plant final March. Plant appeared to win 5 of the primary six rounds earlier than gassing out within the second half and dropping a twelve spherical determination.
Morrell has boxing much like Plant if not higher, however much more energy and glorious stamina. This could possibly be a mistake on Benavidez’s administration’s half to match him in opposition to Morrell as a result of he’s obtained the abilities to reap the benefits of his plodding, face-first type of preventing to gentle him up and both knock him out or pound out a choice.
It’ll be attention-grabbing to see if the Benavidez-Morrell combat occurs subsequent as a result of the ‘Mexican Monster’ may get chilly toes as soon as he acknowledges what he’s up in opposition to on this combat.
Benavidez has loads to lose if he’s overwhelmed by the 25-year-old Morrell in October. If Benavidez will get overwhelmed, he can completely neglect about ever getting the chance to combat Canelo as a result of the famous person will use this as an excuse to proceed to disregard him.
As skinny & emaciated as Benavidez regarded for his combat in opposition to Plant final March, it’s time that he strikes as much as 175 as a result of he’s clearly outgrown the 168-lb division at this level in his profession.
Draining himself to remain at 168 in hopes of getting an enormous payday in opposition to Canelo could possibly be fruitless for Benavidez as a result of it’s not taking place, and it places him liable to getting overwhelmed by extra gifted fighters like Morrell, who’s a pure 168-pounder.
