Benavidez: I got a chance at Canelo

David Benavidez commented on the victory over Caleb Plant, and noted that he deserved the fight with Canelo Alvarez.

Immediately after his unanimous decision victory over Caleb Plant, David Benavidez appeared at the post-fight press conference to discuss the fight and why he felt he deserved a bigger opponent. According to him, when his fight with Plant was over, so was their disagreement, and now he wants to focus on Canelo Alvarez.

“Let's just get back to the fight, man. I want to prove myself. Canelo has shown himself, but I feel like he should give me that opportunity too. And that doesn't mean I'm asking for something. This is what I deserve, especially after this fight," he said.

Earlier Mike Tyson explained why he called David Benavidez a "Mexican monster".
