  • Comments Thread For: David Benavidez To Face Ronald Ellis In Showtime Main Event March 13



    Plant or bust next since he's not in the Canelo sweepstakes apparently.

    At this point every fight Benavidez and Plant make that isnt against each other is going to leave a sour taste in our mouth. We want the Plant vs Benavidez fight but what can this man do? Plant is on his own path to not lose the Canelo payday so Benavidez just gotta keep grinding to the top.

      I mean Benavidez's team wasn't too keen on wanting the fight last year themselves. Now everyone is holding out for the Canelo fight. I hope they don't wait for that and just make this fight and then the winner can fight Canelo.

      Benavidez is also a big boy and will be at 175 in no time so get this fight done before it's too late.

        Why is everyone babying Benavidez? His problems are all self inflicted. If Tank tested positive for cocaine or lost his title (again) on the scales he would be crucified without mercy on NSB.

          I hear ya and + 168 isnt a very strong division so it makes teh Plant vs Benavidez fight stick out alot more imo.

          I dont think people are babying him, everyone knows he messed up and all his issues are self-inflicted but that dosent change the fact that Plant vs Benavidez is still the best fight to be made at 168 and I think thats that bottom line for most boxing fans myself included.

          Sure he failed for cocaine a few years ago, who cares... we still want to see Plant vs Benavidez
          Sure he missed weight and lost his belt, who cares... we still want to see Plant vs Benavidez

          Truax was forced to call his last fight off because he wasn't going to make weight, but Caleb Plant is still fighting him? So theres no difference between him and Benavidez other than Benavidez is a real threat and Truax is not.

            The thing is the division MAY be strong, but we don't know since the top guys for the most part are so unproven. People had Callum Smith as the best SMW for beating........an older George Groves. Benavidez's best win is what? Plant has what exactly on his resume?

            Only way to find out how good these guys are is if they start fighting each other.

                Yeah the division has alot of "cleaning" to do if you will, they must all fight each other and see who comes out on top in the end.

                The thing is this is the fight game so there must always be a Top Fighter in the division no matter how unaccomplished he is and there must be his best perceived threat at any particular moment to keep the division alive and in this case its Plant vs Benavidez.

                Without the allure of Plant vs Benavidez that division is all but dead, it caught a break because Canelo came into it but Canelo is after an accolade (the Belts) and the belts don't necessarily mean you fought the best, it just means you fought whoever was holding that belt, or got a vacant etc.

                So in a division where everyone still has more to prove the Plant vs Benavidez fight is the Marquee stand out fight atm.

                    Well lets just hope if he does he gets on parole or work furlough and can still make the fight.
