By Dan Ambrose: Errol Spence Jr states he believes Canelo Alvarez keep away from light heavyweights Artur Beterbiev and Dmitry Bivol due to the fact that his concentrate on tossing power shots doesn’t deal with them. Canelo doesn’t strike hard enough to trouble them.
Spence states Canelo (59-2-2, 39 KOs) need to fight David Benavidez due to the fact that he feels that would be a great fight. Benavidez (27-0, 23 KOs) would stand in front of Canelo and exist to be struck.
Unfortunately, Canelo has actually currently chosen that he wishes to fight a rematch with Bivol (21-0, 11 KOs) next on September 16th, and he won’t listen to anybody attempting to convince him not to enter that instructions.
Spence states he’d have an interest in battling Canelo however just after he deals with Terence Crawford. That’s the match-up that Errol desires next due to the fact that it’s the one the boxing world has actually been waiting on for the last 6 years.
As Stephen Espinoza of Showtime states, if the Spence-Crawford fight doesn’t take place now, it most likely never ever will.
“I like it. He [Canelo] did alright from what I seen. I saw the highlights, however I didn’t see the fight,” stated Errol Spence to ESNEWS about Canelo Alvarez’s fight last weekend against John Ryder and whether he’d like to face him.
“I absolutely like it, however today, my focus isn’t on Canelo at all. Benavidez would be a great a** fight due to the fact that they’re going to be right there with each other. Canelo is most likely more slicker, however that would be a great fight.
“I believe he ought to keep away from Bivol. Stay far from Beterbiev too,” stated Spence about whether Canelo need to fight light heavyweight world champs Dmitry Bivol & Artur Beterbiev.
“Go back to 168 and manage your service, however I seem like 175 is pressing it. He [Canelo] tosses a great deal of power punches. I don’t believe his power impacts them at 175 like it would at the lower weights.
“There’s a great deal of faces [of boxing]. Whoever has a fight showing up, they’re the face. If Canelo has a fight showing up, he’s the face. If Terence has a fight showing up, he’s the face. When I fight, I’m the face. Whoever has a fight showing up, they’re the face,” stated Spence.
