Benavidez has been out of the ring for a little over a year because of a suspension, but is eager to get back into the spotlight and he said "There are a lot of good fights that can be made this year, I’m very excited and I just have to do my part and hopefully I can face Direll, Plant, or even Callum Smith."
As for the layoff he said " I’m more dedicated now, I had everything taken away from me and that don’t feel good, so now were just going forward.
When asked about D’Leon Love, he said "He’s a good boxer, counter puncher, he’s been in the game and I’m ready for everything. We’re gonna take care of business. I’m looking to get a knockout, and my ultimate goal is to become the undisputed champion with all the belts.
The future is bright for Benavidez, who made history by becoming the youngest super middleweight in boxing when he defeated Ronald Gavril (19-3, 15 KO's) in 2017.
