Daily Bread Mailbag: Canelo-Golovkin 3, David Benavidez, Chocolatito, Charlo – BoxingScene.com

By | June 20, 2022

The Daily Bread Mailbag returns with Stephen “Breadman” Edwards tackling topics equivalent to Canelo Alvarez vs. Gennadiy Golovkin trilogy, David Benavidez and the present win over David Lemieux, Jesse Rodriguez, Roman ‘Chocolatito’ Gonzalez, Jermell Charlo and additional.
Because you may need actually been inside the reverse nook of a Benavidez battle, can you inform us some points he does that almost all don’t discuss or some points which could be underrated about his skillset? Clearly the frequent fan sees the stress and amount and the variety of punches, nevertheless I am crazy to say his capability to cut off the ring locations further psychological stress than bodily stress? It merely seems as if every opponent of his has to work lots further extra sturdy or on the very least they think about they should or they actually really feel like they’re going to get overwhelmed. There are conditions his opponents hearth off from the flawed range and end up getting countered with two or three shot mixtures. I could also be off proper right here nevertheless I actually really feel like Benavidez numerous cases is creating an illusion for his opponents and his main goal is to easily put them in prone positions after which he can get his footage off. I’m very curious to see him in in opposition to a proficient boxer with measurement. Is Morrell that man or is he just too unproven and untested at this degree? He undoubtedly has the beginner pedigree. Moreover, no matter Canelo having all 4 belts at 168 and now combating GGG, I imagine he has to see Benavidez eventually to essentially resolve who’s the simplest at that weight. Benavidez not at all misplaced his belts inside the ring and that points in terms of lineal or determining the simplest inside the weight class IMO. How do you see that battle going?
One different issue, Bam Rodriguez does not get talked about virtually ample as certainly one of many potential P4P kings nevertheless he is about to go Cuadras/SSR in once more to once more fights at a weight class he had not at all fought at. He’s solely 22 years outdated! I like that his group trusts his abilities and are going for it now. The place does it state in boxing {{that a}} fighter has to attend until the age of 25 or 26 to battle the best guys? Hearns was 22 years outdated being a major 2 P4P fighter when he went up in opposition to SRL. Floyd was 23 years outdated when he beat Corrales in arguably the simplest effectivity of his occupation. That is the explanation I chuckle when people say Boots is simply not ready for Spence/Crawford. He is better than ready and every these guys perceive it!
Take care.
Bread’s Response: Bam Rodriguez is the TRUTH!
It’s a ridiculous concept that fighters must attend until their mid 20s with a goal to be champion. Boots is ready to downside for a title correct now, just like Errol Spence was ready in 2015 nevertheless didn’t get Kell Brook until 2017. 
David Benavidez has an off beat jab. It’s very onerous to deal with. I title it a PUT jab. He type of locations it in your forehead in an off beat rhythm. He’s not acknowledged for having a superb jab however it certainly’s onerous to deal with. The other issue about Benavidez is, he has no concern of getting hit. Correct now that’s good issue and points may hold that method. Who’s conscious of. ….Nevertheless usually eventually in a fighter’s occupation they actually really feel one factor and they also aren’t as Cavalier as far as incoming punches. Benavidez closes the realm very easy on account of he’s so cosy getting hit. It doesn’t bother him one bit. He has fast fingers nevertheless he’s fluid. It isn’t a rigid velocity that causes fighters to burn out. It’s a clear velocity that he can protect all of it by means of. Benavidez is a gifted youngster. 
The fighter that will beat him the fighter who can land clear footage inside the midst of his speedy hearth mixtures and picture it or not, tie him up afterwards. It is going to moreover help in case you possibly can harm him ample to make him respect what’s coming once more. At this degree he doesn’t respect one thing that’s coming once more. Most guys can’t go shot for shot and punch for punch with him. Nevertheless in case you possibly can break up his punches after which frustrate him when he tries to get it once more you’ll beat him. Easier talked about than accomplished by one of the simplest ways.
I imagine Benavidez vs Canelo generally is a barn burner. A tremendous movement battle. Battle of the 12 months form of can’t miss battle. Title me crazy nevertheless the large question for me is can Canelo harm Benavidez on account of Canelo is simply not going to utilize his legs and switch him throughout the ring. So he has to have the flexibility to wreck him. I imagine Canelo is a terrific puncher to the highest and physique and he’ll need it vs Benavidez. If he can’t harm David I don’t assume he can maintain with Benavidez ample to win. As crazy as that sounds I imagine the kid is simply too busy for Canelo and as soon as extra if Canelo can’t harm him he’s not going to outbox a person that tall combating down hill on account of Canelo doesn’t leg discipline type of converse. He bins collectively together with his fingers further so than his ft. The question comes all the best way right down to that one issue for me….If Canelo tried to take care of up with Benavidez’s work price he would drown. That may be a notably taxing battle as far as fatigue for Canelo. 
With sturdy rumors circulating that Tank Davis is leaving Mayweather Promotions, do you assume that he now lose a name to Romero? Why does a fighter of Davis’s standing depart a company who seems to have accomplished correct by him? I don’t have inside information however it certainly seems as if he was their favorite fighter. How do you see the battle this weekend collaborating in out outdoor of politics?
Bread’s Response: I have no idea why Davis is leaving Mayweather Promotions or if he’s really leaving. I don’t like to speculate on someone’s non-public state of affairs….With out speculation I am going to converse on the problems I’ve seen. 
Mayweather Promotions did a superb job with him. He’s an precise star. I’ve on a regular basis talked about that he’s a cross between Zab Judah and Mike Tyson. They’ve really tapped into town east coast areas doing large fights in Brooklyn, Atlanta and Baltimore. Then they tapped into the Mexican market doing large fights on the West Coast vs Santa Cruz, Cruz and Barrios.Davis has had some sturdy opponents nevertheless he hasn’t wanted to take any 50/50 fights or “up in opposition to it” form of fights. Perception me I do know when a person is up in opposition to it and he’s not at all been up in opposition to it. He’s solely had one battle as a result of the underdog and in his complete occupation that was in opposition to Jose Pedraza and other people odds have been practically 50/50. Other than that he’s on a regular basis been an unlimited favorite and that means one factor. 
On Tanks’ behalf he’s on a regular basis delivered and that counts. If he didn’t win the fights that he’s gained he wouldn’t be on this place. He’s delivered every time, usually by spectacular ko. Contracts expire for a goal. No one is entitled to be with an entity perpetually and vice versa. 
I merely hope if its true he’s making the suitable alternative and hopefully he doesn’t have anyone in his ear that has ulterior motives. Usually cases in boxing you may need people that create factors for the fighters then when these factors come up, the oldsters that created them can’t restore them. He’s nonetheless a youthful man with a protracted method to go in his occupation and in boxing the suitable enterprise strikes could also be merely as important as the suitable strikes contained within the ring. 
I like Davis to win this battle on account of usually in fights with two large punchers the upper technical fighter wins. GGG vs Lemuiex. McClellan vs Jackson. Hagler vs Mugabi. I moreover don’t know if Romero can take a punch. I’ve not at all seen him hit by an unlimited shot. Nevertheless I imagine Romero is dwell and proper right here is why. 
Tank Davis seems mad. Davis has the mannequin to battle mad on account of he’s an offensive killer nevertheless when you’re mad you make errors in case you don’t score the early ko. You moreover need your 2nd wind sooner on account of being upset makes your blood stream out of whack.
I’ve moreover seen unorthodox heavy handed fighters like Rollie give larger technical fighters hell. Sakio Bika gave Andre Ward and Joe Calzaghe hell. Marcos Maidana gave Floyd Mayweather hell. Ricardo Mayorga is the reason why Vernon Forest is simply not inside the HOF. In all of those fights the awkward fighter wasn’t harm. If Tank can’t harm Rollie he’s going to have trouble. He has to have the flexibility to wreck him. 
I moreover see Rollie and his coach engaged on a LEFT HOOK to the highest and physique. If Tank fights overly aggressive the left hook is the shot they don’t see. See Nonito Donaire vs Vic Darchynian. Southpaws moreover lead with their liver, so the physique hook is on degree. 
As I form I protect pondering that I haven’t seen Rollie hit with an unlimited shot. He seems easy to hit nevertheless his reflexes must be good on account of he doesn’t get beat on. He doesn’t take numerous punishment. 
I can’t select in opposition to Davis at this degree. I imagine he’s one the 10-12 most interesting fighters on this planet. Nevertheless I imagine Romero will give an excellent account of himself if he doesn’t get clipped early.
Canelo vs GGG 3 was launched and I actually really feel choose it is “no bueno” for GGG. He labored onerous in that Murata battle and if Murata didn’t let him off the hook (partly because of the damage inflicted by GGG), then GGG might have been accomplished. On the same time, I imagine you talked about a while once more, all of Canelo’s fights will probably be tougher. He is not going to be combating downhill. It ought to actually really feel further even or uphill now. This can be beat case state of affairs for Golovkin. He may have an invigorated spirit going into this battle. The judges CAN (type of) get it correct.
Whereas I imagine that Canelo stopping him is like 60% seemingly, I moreover uncover myself questioning what GGG can do otherwise to find a fashion. My question for you: What was “usable” for GGG after watching the Bivol battle? What can GGG just about embody in his preparation and execution for this rubber match? I imagine he should lean on that jab better than ever and poke poke poke and know when to step once more. I imagine he desires to watch that lull between his 1st and second wind. That’s the place the KO happens. He is not going to get one timed. He’ll get eroded slowly and I wager it begins spherical spherical 4. It’s type of like this poem: “Crumbling is simply not an immediate’s Act” by Emily Dickenson, Crumbling is simply not an immediate’s Act, A fundamental pause, Dilapidation’s processes, Are organized Decays. ‘Tis first a Cobweb on the Soul, A Cuticle of Mud, A Borer inside the Axis, An Elemental Rust —Injury is formal — Devil’s work, Consecutive and sluggish —Fail straight away, no man did. Slipping — is Crash’s regulation. I imagine this captures GGG’s decline since Kell Brook till now, however moreover, his sluggish toppling which might occur inside the rubber match. People might say that’s good timing for GGG, nevertheless I actually assume this battle is good timing for Canelo.
I’m inquisitive about your concepts now that it is official (possibly you might have ruminated further deeply now {{that a}} date is about).
Sincerely, Jay
Bread’s Response: Superior poem! I posted this comment as a consequence of it.
I imagine GGG loses the trilogy battle nevertheless I imagine his coronary coronary heart, willpower and chin can NOT be underestimated. He’s a SAVAGE canine that does not stop trying to win. As a result of his kos and seemingly invincible sturdiness most of the people underestimates his coronary coronary heart. I don’t. He’s that dude. I seen that they are already inside the VADA program. That’s good info and it benefits GGG. Which suggests they’re going to check out for 4 months going into this battle……
I imagine Jonathan Banks is an outstanding coach and he has to find out 2 points. 1. Is how can GGG land better than a jab vs Canelo. For some goal GGG’s totally different large footage don’t really come off vs Canelo, notably to the physique 2. How can GGG not get so fatigued. I don’t think about he lacks conditioning. I’ve seen him apply. It’s one factor else. Within the occasion that they decide it out GGG can win. Nevertheless my man is 40. The great HOF has aged cleanly and gracefully. I don’t depend on him to win this battle nevertheless I hope I’m flawed!
Hey Mr. Bread, hope you and yours are doing correctly.
I was watching the battle between chocolatito and El Rey, that was an excellent beat down IMO not a battle. Nevertheless would you say chocolatito has one of many essential underrated safety in boxing, am not saying he’s sweet pea, nevertheless his safety is weirdly sturdy. Every in just a few of his earlier fights and inside the El Rey battle, lots of the punches have been landing on his gloves, on his shoulder, those who touched his face have been largely deflected or the sting was taken off from his glove or shoulder. You check out the punch stat of his opponents and it seems as in the event that they actually landed a lot nevertheless watching the battle intently, they weren’t clear shot. I assume my question is, do you assume his safety is underrated? Is there someone before now you’ll draw similarities from?
Do you assume his safety is uncared for on account of he throws a lot and sometimes his opponent (esp El rey) throws a flurry that appears as if it landed because the group screams just a bit? This dude is an offense machine and has been able to weaponize his offense the place he does delicate points in between his footage to deal with some defensive integrity, he has one hand on his opponent and one hand once more at home to protect him, he take delicate steps to maneuver out of certain punches, sometimes he is too shut contained in the place you’ll’t do lots, little head actions at important cases to dodge punches, his capability to time and throw in between his opponents punches and momentarily halting their offense,  as soon as extra nothing really slick.  Nevertheless one different part of his safety which can be uncared for which I’ve seen in majority of his battle is his capability to discourage his opponents from throwing once more, I seen El Ray’s punch output dwindle,  El Gallo ( which I assumed he gained the rematch btw) slowly declined his punch output and was worn out IMO, Comparable with Yafai, Srisskaet was most certainly the one dude that did not break down as lots and his punches have been onerous. All that to say this, I imagine this must be counted in his safety and this help hearth up his offense. I moreover assume his physique punching is a big part of this and his opponent spend further time defending their physique than throwing and eventually try and survive punches from far and wide. Who would you favor to see him battle subsequent? Do you assume she must be avoided Ssriskaet?
MM (Prime for Prime): If all have been in comparable weight class, Chocolatito vs Ceaser Chavez, Chocolatito vs Donaire, Chocolatito Vs Shakur (am curious the best way you assume he should technique a slick man like this).
Thanks, Have an excellent one.
Bread’s Response: I was merely requested about good defensive fighters who’re moreover good offensive fighters and I forgot my man. Choc has some D. He catches, slips and rolls. He’s clear and calm. His stance is simply not textual content material e-book on account of his head is over his entrance knee however it certainly works for him. His D is within the similar ball park as Duran’s and Chavez’s nevertheless I imagine theirs is barely larger. Choc is among the many prime 10 fighters of the ultimate 2 a few years. He’s an ATG smaller weight fighter.
Good night time Bread I hope this finds you good.
I was interested by your suggestions on Jermell beginning to attain numerous stoppage wins inside the prime of his occupation, after not scoring many when he was arising. I have no idea if this will impact Jermell, nevertheless discovering KO vitality will not be on a regular basis a optimistic issue for a boxer. I’ll offer you 3 examples of fellows who’ve been VERY good boxers, found that that they had KO vitality & thereafter went ‘power-crazed’ & neglected the skills that purchased them the place they’ve been. Lloyd Honeyghan was a ravishing boxer. I can understand why he went out ‘all weapons blazing’ in opposition to a person with the skills of Don Curry.  He knew nonetheless professional he was Curry was larger, so he wanted to flip it proper right into a battle, nevertheless he not at all was able to return to his boxing method in his fights after that. Edwin Rosario was the person that had each factor, safety, footwork, jab, along with a vicious RH. After he beat Livingstone Bramble he appeared to show into the person that launched RH vitality & merely neglected all the alternative points. Prince Naseem Hamed gained the European championship at 18 & his vastly expert opponent couldn’t lay a glove on him. He was super-human that battle. Naz beloved sparring & he didn’t ideas hitting baggage nevertheless he on a regular basis hated working. As quickly as he found he had KO vitality, that was that, he merely wouldn’t do stamina teaching, figuring he might on a regular basis get the alternative man out early.
In distinction, I really admire Tommy Hearns. He had inhuman one-punch vitality, which he demonstrated over as soon as extra, nevertheless he not at all stopped engaged on his talents. Due to this fact why, with a broken hand, he might outbox Wilfredo Benitez, most likely the best boxers of all time, to retain his title.
Bread’s Response: I agree with you. Nevertheless Jermell actually seems to be like for his kos. He merely has a clutch gene the place he nonetheless finds them. He’s a singular case nevertheless in case you watch his earlier fights vs John Jackson and Tony Harrison he actually appeared for kos and acquired them. In Jermell’s battle vs Brian Castano was the primary time the place he actually boxed his method to a ko.
Sup Bread,
I’ve noticed that sometimes you level out that amount punching stress combating is the hardest mannequin to beat till the boxer is in his prime and totally different cases I’ve seen you say that an defensive outfighter with good legs and expertise to punch on the fly might be essentially the most troublesome to beat. If it is a should to decide on certainly one of many two, which one will it  be (considering we’re talking about fighters at their apex), a amount punching stress fighter who can punch on the fly like Pryor and Armstrong or an outfighter who can punch on the fly like Mayweather and Whitaker?
Bread’s Response: I apologize if my suggestions are difficult. Let me clarify.
An elite diploma amount puncher who has an iron chin could also be very highly effective to beat of their primes on account of you’ll’t discourage them. It’s possible you’ll’t outwork them. They normally throw too many punches. Among the many most interesting wins in historic previous come from elite diploma amount punchers. Rarely do you see them of their absolute prime get cleanly outboxed. Typically it is a should to stop them to beat them.
Aaron Pryor stopped Alexis Arguello from being boxing’s first 4 division champion. 
Henry Armstrong defeated Barney Ross in a battle that principally decided who was the world’s most interesting fighter. 
Roberto Duran defeated an undefeated favorite on Ray Leonard in what was the simplest win of the 80s.
Joe Frazier defeated an undefeated Muhammad Ali in what was the simplest win of the 70s.
Julio Cesar Chavez defeated Edwin Rosario in what may have been the simplest effectivity of the 80s. 
Armstrong, Pryor, Frazier, Duran and Chavez are all elite diploma amount punchers who’ve been able to take the punches of their opponents. Nevertheless the caveat that comes with the mannequin is it’s onerous to deal with because of the kind and depth it’s important to make use of it. They burn out sooner. So it’s the hardest mannequin to be good at moreover because of the extent of conditioning you need and the best way temporary the peak usually is.
The defensive outfighter who punches on the fly could be very onerous to beat. Most fighters can’t punch on the fly. They should stop and punch then switch as soon as extra. The outfighter’s mannequin final greater than the amount puncher. No one needs to deal with an elite stick and mover. 
Your question is tough because of the Rock , Paper, Scissors of boxing. You forgot I on a regular basis add this. The out fighter and mover has trouble with the amount fighter. Ali “outfighter” vs Frazier “stress fighter” is an outstanding occasion. Frazier gave Ali much more trouble than he gave Foreman “puncher”. Because of the stress has a tricky time dealing with the monstrous puncher. He walks into his wheel residence. Duran “Pressure fighter” vs Hearns “puncher” is one different occasion as is Frazier vs Foreman.
Willie Pep “out fighter” had matches with Sandy Saddler “stress fighter” on account of Saddler is an elite diploma stress fighter. As Pep is transferring, Saddler is transferring with him and punching on the same time. Nevertheless large punchers like Sonny Liston don’t give Ali as lots trouble. 
Danny Lopez “Puncher” didn’t give Sal Sanchez “out fighter” any trouble. So the out fighter can usually beat the puncher. The place as a result of the puncher can usually beat the stress fighter. The place as a result of the stress fighter can usually beat the boxer. Due to this fact you may need Rock, Paper, Scissors of boxing.
Sup Bread,
I needed to the touch upon the David Benavidez v David Lemieux battle this earlier weekend. First I am going to state the plain that Benavidez is a beast. What surprised me was how even when he had a bonus he was on a regular basis defensively  accountable and proceed to do the jab and parry on account of Lemieux was dwell until the highest.
Every reader proper right here understands on a main diploma what the job does for fighter nevertheless can you make clear as a coach each factor the jab does that as followers we’d not understand  It is on a regular basis regarded as an vital punch in boxing nevertheless what are the nuances of the jab? David Lemieux wins the award for me for largest coronary coronary heart. He was getting clobbered nevertheless not at all stop trying even  when he was harm badly. Enormous ups to you and Kyrone Davis for performing considerably larger vs Benavidez. On reflection, his stock goes up notably with the temporary uncover. Who do you assume ultimately will face Benavidez amongst the champions in and spherical his division. No one will probably be rushing in the direction of him after this bout and he sounds grounded and guaranteed and most importantly hungry.
Take care,
Aaron from Cleveland
Bread’s Response: A jab is the closest issue to the opponent. So subsequently it’s usually the perfect to land. It scores the perfect elements. It items up the alternative punches. It breaks up the rhythm of your opponents. And because it doesn’t take most vitality to throw. It’s a punch which may be thrown when a fighter is fatigued. Benavidez seems to be bettering and his jab is underrated. He has a superb jab. It seems as if David Morrell is chasing a battle with Benavidez. There could also be on a regular basis someone who’s eager to battle you. Benavidez now has a person who’s chasing him. Let’s study within the occasion that they battle. I don’t pretty however understand how good Morrell is, nevertheless I can inform he’s terribly gifted.
Whats up, Breadman.
Quick question: Who do you personally take into consideration to be the “Mount Rushmore” of 147 ponds? Thanks. Bread’s Response: Sugar Ray Robinson, Sugar Ray Leonard, Henry Armstrong and Tommy Hearns. Hearns is up for debate inside the 4th spot on account of he didn’t have a protracted reign and solely had 3 title defenses. There are a lot of fighters who’ve a declare to that spot. Emille Griffith, Mickey Walker, Felix Trinidad, Floyd Mayweather, Manny Pacquiao, Jose Napoles, Oscar De La hoya and Baby Gavilan. Nevertheless I merely actually really feel like nose to nose Hearns is the toughest out on his most interesting night time time.
