Jose Benavides, father and coach of two-time world middleweight champion David Benavides, said they have no problem waiting for Saul Alvarez, who holds the WBC and WBA titles at 168-pounds.
“We know that Canelo has certain commitments: fights with Billy Saunders and Caleb Plant, as well as a possible trilogy with Triple G. So we have time to continue to gain experience and learn, although we would be ready, if we suddenly had a chance to go against him in the ring, “- said Benavides Sr.
“Canelo is a teacher, the best pound-for-pound boxer in our eyes, he has tremendous talent and is a great counter-puncher. However, we have seen several flaws in his technique, one of which is a jab, he has certain problems. with distance work, so we focus on the jab a lot, his planned fights will give us time to adjust certain things.
We keep learning. David is getting stronger, he is now 24 years old. I think the fight with Canelo that the fans are asking for won’t happen right now, but we hope it will happen in about three or four fights. He was once given the opportunity by Floyd Mayweather, and now Canelo will do it for us. “
