When it comes to the super-middleweight division (168 lbs.) Saul Canelo Alvarez became undisputed champion last weekend.
Boxing’s biggest star and pound for pound number one stopped Caleb Plant in Las Vegas to do so.
Many believe only David Benavidez (24-0-21 KO) is the final challenge left at that weight class for him.
Not long ago he was (now aged still only 24) boxing’s youngest world champion so he will only get better as time goes on.
Otherwise Alvarez will just have to go up to light-heavyweight permanently.
Some even astonishingly suggesting a move to heavyweight. That will not happen of course.
Benavidez fights tonight in Arizona and knows a big win is needed with the eyes of the world on him.
Here’s why many think he should be Canelo Alvarez’ next fight:
