Former double-weight champion and now ESPN commentator, American Timothy Bradley spoke about the upcoming fight between the leader of the pound-for-pound rating, Mexican Saul Alvarez (53-1-2, 36 KO) and Turkish challenger Avni Yildirim (21 -2-0, 12 KO).
“In such a fight, Canelo simply has to look impressive and win by knockout. This will raise his credibility and satisfy the fans. This guy shouldn’t live to see round 6. Yes, he is an obligatory contender, but we all perfectly understand the situation with organizations.
The problem is that Canelo jumps on weights and conquers belts, but does not fight the best. Why couldn’t the WBC put Benavides in 1st place in the rankings? We also have Jermall Charlo, who would hardly have given up on this fight. Believe me, Yildirim will not do anything, this guy is a sack, ”Bradley said.
