C.yearn Álvarez is looking for his next rival in case that the revenge with Dmitry Bivol does not materialize. Although the Mexican boxer has made something very clear “He did not fight with other Mexicans.”

That phrase has angered more than one and that is David Benavidez, who has thrown himself against Canelo many times, assuring that he is afraid of her.

But for the promoter of DAZN, Eddie Hearn, there’s a reason Canelo doesn’t want to face him or Zurdo Ramirez, and it is that they do not have fights of great renown. In the case of Benavidez, it is about the fact that a meeting with Caleb Plant could not be agreed.

If Benavidez wants to fight Canelo Alvarez, that’s the kind of fight he has to be in to make a statement.

I can’t believe we can’t get Benavidez-Plant. Benavidez-Plant is a really big fight. Plant comes from a great door, although against Canelo Avlarez. Great numbers, he’s a great fighter, he has a great narrative and Benavidez He’s a tremendous fighter, and that’s the kind of fight to do,” he told the DAZN Boxing Show.

Hearn was blunt with Benavidez and assured that if He wants to get into the ring with Canelo, he has to have his fight with Plant.

“If Benavidez wants to fight Canelo Álvarez, that’s the kind of fight you have to be in to make a statement, to make everyone’s jaws drop. Plant-Benavidez, the same camp, the same network, it should be a fact.”
