Former WBC super middleweight champion Anthony Dirrell says he’s ready to recover the green and gold crown that he lost in 2015 against Badou Jack.
However, the belt now has a young, ambitious and new owner in the lean youthful form of David Benavídez, from Arizona.
Benavidez was crowned champion on September 8, 2017 against Ronald Gavril, becoming the youngest super middleweight champion in history at the age of 20, 8 months and 19 days.
Confident and precocious he ‘s ready to defend his championship and clearly shows just why he’s the best in the world.
He concedes that Anthony is a tough rival, who after that setback has won his last five fights.
Likely this Spring Vs Autumn contest of two seasons will fall in September in New York.
The mandatory defense between the super featherweight champion of the World Boxing Council, Miguel Berchelt, and the mandatory challenger, Miguel Roman, could be held in the United States in October, said promoter Oswaldo Kuchle, of Promociones del Pueblo.
Oswaldo stated that El Paso, Texas, Los Angeles and Chicago, cities that congregate a large number of Mexican public, would be likely venues, trusting that the fight will be closed in the coming days, after negotiations with the company Zanfer, which lead the champion Berchelt.
“The negotiations are going very well with Zanfer, the fight must be closed soon, we are in communication with the American television, but what can be sure is that it will go through both Mexican television, Televisa and Tv Azteca, we need to close the television in U.S”.
“The fight we are planning is for the first weeks of October, we would not rule out the city of El Paso, Texas, Los Angeles, even Chicago,” said the Mexican promoter.
Carlos ‘Príncipe’ Cuadras will seek a chance and will give the first step towards his camping in the bantamweight division. He wants to fight in the mid-August against a rival of the first level; in a card that will be seen throughout Mexico on the Televisa Deportes screens.
Principe, who was undefeated world champion at 115 pounds, is getting ready to invade the bantamweight division; and for it he will be training at the Otomi Ceremonial Center, to more than 3200 meters above the level of the sea, to break with its characteristic style in the division that trusts to conquer at the latest next year.
Cuadras Quiroa, shares camp with former world champion Pedro Guevara and rookie sensation Karim ‘Traviesito’ Arce; and he assured that he will seek as soon as possible to become the world champion in the WBC bantamweight division, which is currently vacant.
“I am focused to be world champion once again, I miss that green and gold belt, I dream that I have it once more in my hands and I will do my best to get it back in. I feel I have the ability to get it and I know that if I work hard for nobody is going to prevent it, “Cuadras said.
The ‘Prince’ has a record of 36 wins, 27 of them by KO, 3 losses and one draw.
