David Benavidez and Jermall Charlo have a change
Via Dan Ambrose: David Benavidez and Jermall Charlo almost stuck to it Saturday night while attending the Errol Spence Jr. with. Yordenis Ugas at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
Benavidez (25-0, 22 KOs), the highly ranked undefeated 168-lb candidate (25-0.22 KOs) said that Charlo punched his father Jose Benavidez Sr in the face and hurled words at him.
David said he went and confronted Jermall, and he said he thought he was drunk for him”his babbling“And could not stand. Benavidez said he told Charlo he was going to “beat one of his.”
Benavidez wants to fight Charlo (32-0, 22 KOs), who currently holds the WBC middleweight belt. For them to fight, Charlo will need to increase his weight to 168.
We probably won’t see a fight between Charlo and Benavidez anytime soon as Canelo Alvarez is expected to face Jermall next year.
While he has a chance to land a big payday match against Canelo, it’s highly likely Charlo won’t want to take any part in fighting a killer like Benavidez.
David Benavidez said to Against TV Hub about him and Jermall Charlo sparring Saturday night at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
“He was trying to fuck my dad, so I pulled up. He did nothing. He just runs his mouth, that’s all he does,” Benavidez continued about Jermall.
It would be bad news if Charlo started throwing punches because there were a lot of people in the crowd who would probably join in.
“Like always, he tries to run his mouth but he never does anything. I told him I would smack one of his ** and f*** him with one** up. It’s the same trash talk back and forth.
“Honestly, he looked like he was drunk, to tell you the truth. Couldn’t even stand and was babble his words, say all this, say he will beat.
“Definitely it has to happen now,” Benavidez said when asked if a fight between him and Jermall would happen. I’m very happy, man. It was a good fight. Hopefully, we can make it here [AT&T Stadium].
“I can have all my people here. His people in Texas don’t like him. I feel like I have more fans than he does in Texas,” Benavidez said of Charlo. “Every time they appeared on screen, everyone booed him,” Benavidez said.
