Canelo vs. Benavidez Trainer Casts Doubt on Mega-Clash"

Canelo Alvarez’s trainer, Eddy Reynoso, has cast doubt on the possibility of the highly anticipated showdown between Canelo and David Benavidez. The fighters seem to be heading in different directions, with Benavidez set to move up to the light heavyweight division for a bout against Oleksandr Gvozyk. However, Canelo’s camp questions whether this mega-clash will ever come to fruition.

Benavidez’s decision to venture into the 175-pound division raises concerns about his ability to return to the super middleweight class after the upcoming fight with Gvozyk. Although his trainer, Jose Sr., expresses intentions to return to 168 pounds, the practicality of making this move successfully remains uncertain.

Trainer Reynoso acknowledges the potential challenges, stating, “The fight with Benavidez may take a while or maybe never happen.” The key, according to Reynoso, lies in Benavidez’s performance and accomplishments. Winning against Gvozyk may not be sufficient to generate interest in a Canelo matchup; Benavidez must set his sights higher, targeting notable light heavyweight champions such as Artur Beterbiev and Dmitry Bivol.

Drawing a parallel to historic fights that faced delays but eventually materialized, Reynoso cites Mayweather vs. Pacquiao as an example. Despite the passage of time, the long-anticipated bout between Mayweather and Pacquiao eventually took place in 2015. Reynoso remains hopeful that conditions align for Canelo vs. Benavidez, emphasizing that among fighters, there is no fear, and negotiations play a crucial role.

As the boxing world watches the developments in both fighters’ careers, the prospect of Canelo and Benavidez sharing the ring remains uncertain but not impossible.
