“Struggle (David) Benavidez, give up ducking Benavidez, give up ducking (Jermall) Charlo.”

As Paul eludes to, each Benavidez and Charlo had been provided to Alvarez as a part of a two-fight deal made by Premier Boxing Champions Al Haymon. Benavidez, and Charlo for that matter, have urged the pound-for-pound star to face them contained in the ring. However, regardless of their fixed callouts and no matter Paul’s chastisement, Alvarez opted in opposition to going through both foe.

Though initially apoplectic by his choice, each Charlo and Benavidez have moved on.

Within the case of Benavidez, the previous two-time tremendous middleweight champion will sq. off in opposition to David Lemieux on Could twenty first, with the winner being awarded the WBC interim crown. As for Charlo, whereas he has said on quite a few events that he would eagerly and swiftly acquiesce to Alvarez’s weight calls for and face him at 168 kilos, for now, he’ll stay within the middleweight division the place he’ll try to defend his prized WBC title in opposition to Maciej Sulecki on June 18th.
