Sebastian Fundora says David Benavidez “The King of 168”

Via Sean Jones: Sebastian ‘The Towering Inferno’ Fundora said he considers David Benavidez already “the king of 168”, even without conquering undisputed super-middleweight champion Canelo Alvarez.

Canelo’s unwillingness to take on Benavidez (26-0.23 KOs) automatically makes him King of the 168-lb tier by default.

When you have a four belt champion lacking the confidence to fight a cub like Benavidez, it automatically makes him #1 in the weight division.

It would have been great if Canelo was willing to fall to the sword and fight the young king Benavidez so that he could take the baton from his hand before his career took off like Gennadiy Golovkin, but that seems like it will not happen. Canelo has no interest in fighting Benavidez, and he found a convenient excuse not to face him.

“We’ll see about that. It’s 50-50 for me,” Sebastian Fundora told ESNEWS about David Benavidez vs IBF, WBC & WBO light heavyweight champion Artur Beterbiev. “David is very responsive. I think he is the king of 168. Just give him a chance. Give him a chance, and he’ll win it allFundora said.

“I’d have a problem with the boxing organizations if they let Benavidez go there with GGG,” said Roy Jones Jr. Porter Way Podcast. “First of all, you’ve got a lion cub that throws almost 100 punches per round.

“You had a hard time surviving against a guy who threw 55 & 60 each round. Are you going to put him in with a guy? [Benavidez] which is 100 throws per round? It was someone older than him, taller than him, and that Canelo didn’t even want to fight.

“You have to talk to him about it. There’s a lot going on with boxing,” Jones said when asked why Canelo didn’t want to fight Benavidez. “There are so many different ways to say no.

“You fought the greatest Mexican boxer of all time, you fought his son, and now you have another Mexican. [Benavidez] over there that you don’t want to fight?

“You have all the other people you fight with, and you’re saying you don’t want to fight another Mexican. Are you kidding me? You don’t want to take that gamble to see who is the best.

“He is [Canelo] Jones said.
