David Benavidez performed better in the match against Demetrius Andrade. He succeeded in defeating a tough opponent. David is full of praise for his opponent, who impressed him with his qualities “[I was able to stop him] because of the hard work and dedication I put in.

Everybody says I'm not this, I'm not that, I'm flat-footed, I have no defense. This guy probably applied one of the best defenses. He's really good offensively. He could barely even hit me, so I think that says a lot on its own," Benavidez said, as quoted by boxingscene.com!

David Benavidez and his goals

Benavidez had a special tactic for his opponent. At this moment, the most important thing for him is to have self-confidence. He is not afraid to face anyone in the ring. Then when you firmly believe in yourself, the results must come.

Of course, Benavidez also has the necessary qualities for big things. "I think the first shot I caught him with was when I dipped his left hand and came back with a right hand and that made a point, and I knew I had to keep putting the pressure on him because he wasn't going to keep taking those shots.

I just have to keep beating who they put in front of me. I'm the best. I'm going to be the best. I'm going to be a legend by the time I'm done, so whoever you keep putting in front of me, I'll keep knocking them down."- Benavidez continued.

His next goal is to face Canelo Alvarez. "I think I just solidified myself as a dominant force here. I just reminded everyone who the real champion at 168 is. Who wants to see me versus Canelo? I'm going to be super middleweight champion of the world, three-time world champion. Now just give me the fight that we all want to see. Who wants to see Benavidez versus Canelo?," Benavidez concluded.
