Jose Benavidez Sr on Andrade vs Benavidez
In a recent interview with MillCity Boxing, Jose Benavidez spoke about David Benavidez's next fight and shared his thoughts on Demetrius Andrade as a boxer. "Everything is done.
It's ready to go. Pretty soon, it's going to be announced, maybe this week or next week when the date," Benavidez Sr said, as quoted by boxing247.com. "I like Boo Boo. He's a great fighter, a slick fighter, and undefeated for a reason, the fight is done.
We signed before him. I've been trying to get this fight for a long time, and all because Canelo says he's a terrible fighter, a horrible fighter. I don't think he's a horrible fighter. He's a dangerous fighter. That's why he didn't want to fight him.
I heard that the Charlos don't want to fight him, and I heard that all these people don't want to fight him. We want to fight him. We want to make that fight happen. We should do good numbers. Maybe the same [as Benavidez vs. Caleb Plant].
Benavidez Sr on when the fight could happen: "It's going to be the first or second week of December. It's done, it's ready. They're just trying to figure out the date. We're ready to go. It's ready to go. Boo Boo, if you sign, good.
I haven't heard anything. I was hoping he would take the fight. If he says he signed, we're ready to go.
