Eddie Reinoso, coach of WBA Super and WBC super middleweight champion Eddie Reinoso, said his ward could fight this year with WBO title holder Billy Joe Saunders and IBF champion Caleb Plant.
“We are independent and can now negotiate with whoever we want. We have great plans for the future. We plan to fight our mandatory challenger in February and then fight again in May and September. Perhaps in the future we will look at Saunders and then Planta, our goal is to become Mexico’s first undisputed world middleweight champion.
We want to combine all the titles and fight the best fighters in the second middle division. Golovkin is in middleweight and our goal is to fight in second middleweight. Benavides is a good fighter, but the only problem with him is his lack of a belt. He has achieved a lot in his career, but Saul is determined to conquer all the belts. Plus we don’t know if Benavides will stay at 168 pounds. We have no goal to fight him now, “Eddie Reinoso told The Ring.
