Benavidez Has Hilarious Response To Canelo Asking For $150 Million To Fight Him

David Benavidez has hit back at Canelo Alvarez for demanding up to $200 million to fight him. 

Alvarez will face Jaime Munguia on May 4 as he defends his Undisputed Super Middleweight Belt. Canelo was criticized by several former fighters, including Mike Tyson and Paulie Malignaggi, for not fighting Benavidez. 

“You’re talking about the biggest duck in boxing history. This is in your same weight class, and you are the champion. Is Benavidez being ducked more blatantly than that? I think he is at this point,” Malignaggi said

The Mexican Monster has been the WBC Super Middleweight Interim Champion for over two years. Canelo responded, saying there was no offer to fight Benavidez, but he would fight if he received a considerable sum. 

“You know he he brings he bring nothing to the table for me; just he brings just 25 pounds more in the night the the fight…but if he if if some promoter, not him, because he’s nothing to offer me…but I one promoter who I work to they come and say I offer to I offer to you 150 to 200 million. I fight tomorrow…that’s the only that’s the only reason I fight with him,” Canelo said

Saudi Arabia is capable of providing those funds. Since Canelo is a free agent, the Kingdom could get involved. However, Alvarez has been accused of pricing himself out, with Benavidez calling out Canelo for his mixed comments.
