Eddie Hearn has actually determined David Benavidez, Demetrius Andrade & David Morrell as the 3 fighters with the very best opportunities of beating indisputable incredibly middleweight champ Canelo Alvarez in the department.
If Morrell gets the Canelo fight before either Benavidez or Andrade, there would definitely be extreme envy in between the fighters who have actually been campaigning for a shot against the super star for several years.
These leading risks to Canelo at 168 consist of David Benavidez, Demetrius Andrade, and David Morrell.
Of the 3, Hearn thinks that the unbeaten WBA ‘routine’ 168-lb champ Morrell might be the most difficult for Canelo due to the risk-reward not deserving it.
Canelo would certainly deal with a considerable difficulty in any of these 3 fighters, however he has actually handled to prevent dealing with Benavidez & Andrade up until now.
Despite his WBA ‘routine’ title, Morrell stays an unnoticeable male in the 168-lb department, hardly ever pointed out and barely existing, as he is thought about a danger to Benavidez, Andrade, and Canelo.
However, Benavidez just recently did not wish to fight Morrell, thinking that it was not a considerable fight, in spite of acknowledging Morrell’s skill.
Hearn raises the concern of who might beat Canelo and hypothesizes whether Morrell might be overvalued, however thinks that we will not really understand till he deals with among the leading fighters at 168.
As Canelo, Andrade & Benavidez are not excited to deal with Morrell, Hearn recommends that Edgar Berlanga or Diego Pacheco might fight Morrell for his WBA secondary 168-lb belt.
