‘I stand by my words’ – David Benavidez asks HE Turki Alalshikh to help make Canelo Alvarez fight and offers to donate entire purse if he loses [Video]

David Benavidez has now made a public request to His Excellency Turki Alalshikh to help make the Canelo Alvarez fight.

HE Alalshikh is the chairman of Saudi Arabia’s General Entertainment Authority and has been key to agreeing deals for several recent major boxing events by staging them in Riyadh.

This began with Tyson Fury vs Francis Ngannou in October.

Next came a stacked card featuring both Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder in December – the pair had finally signed to meet this month, only for Wilder to suffer a shock defeat to Joseph Parker which scuppered the fight.

As a result, AJ instead boxed Ngannou himself on March 8.

And it doesn’t stop there, with Fury vs Oleksandr Usyk for the undisputed heavyweight world titles already signed for May 18.

Plus Dmitry Bivol vs Artur Beterbiev for the undisputed light-heavyweight world titles is being planned for June 1, alongside the return of Wilder.
