Benavidez commented one of the weak points of the Mexican: fatigue, He mentioned that when the Mexican realized how to fight back he was already very exhausted.

“What Canelo did was he kept trying to take him down and hit him with power punches. By the time he realized that he had to do something new, he was already exhausted. That’s the thing with him.”

The native of Arizona did not keep anything and also Point out one of your mistakes the thought that he can knock everyone out.

“He thinks he can knock everyone out and punch everyone in the arm, and their arm will fall off. That doesn’t happen with everyone. It can happen with one or two guys, but it doesn’t happen with all the others.”

David Benavidez knows that the Russian Dmitry Bivol exposed Canelo a lot in a big fight.

“Bivol also taught us a lot. He exposed Canelo a little bit more than people thought he might be exposed. It was a good fight. I am very happy for Bivol. He did exactly what he had to do and it shocked the whole world.”
