David Benavidez Considering Cruiserweight – Is He Overlooking Caleb Plant?
The ‘Mexican Monster’ David Benavidez has not dismissed the possibility of competing in the Cruiserweight division in the future.
But before he can even think about that, he has something much closer to home to take care of: Caleb Plant.
The latter is looking to separate himself from the knockout defeat he experienced against Canelo Alvarez in the fall of 2021.
But come March 25th, 2023, Benavidez will make an attempt to end his longstanding feud with Plant in Las Vegas, Nevada.
This fight is undoubtedly important for the 26-year-old Mexican. He has his sights set on a match against the undisputed super middleweight champion Canelo Alvarez.
Moreover, Benavidez (26-0, 23 KOs) is quietly making plans to conquer the light-heavyweight division.
“So right now, I definitely want to go up to 175. I know I can win the belt at 175,” Benavidez via Fight Hub TV.
Apart from his plan to conquer Plant, before getting two world titles in the 168 and 175-pound weight classes, Benavidez does not think his career will end with just being a two-division world champion.
In view of his huge body, Benavidez is confident that, at some point, he will test his capabilities at an even heavier weight.
“I think it’s definitely very possible but right now, my sights are on 68. I want to be unified world champion at 68, go up to 75 and I think it definitely could be a possibility, cruiserweight.”
