Floyd Mayweather manager names the fight for Canelo Alvarez that he thinks is bigger than a Terence Crawford bout
Canelo Alvarez continues to be linked to some of the biggest names in boxing, but his next move is still unconfirmed.
Last year, the Mexican fighter, a world champion at 168lbs, enjoyed a solid 2023 as he picked up wins against John Ryder and Jermell Charlo to keep his number one position.
With the new year up and running, Canelo’s targets for 2024 appear to be the likes of Terence Crawford, Jaime Munguia, and David Benavidez, but who will he face?
Leonard Ellerbe, an influential figure in the career of Floyd Mayweather, believes that Benavidez is a much bigger fight than Crawford despite the Nebraskan being top of the pound for pound list.
“It has nothing to do with whether or not somebody deserves the fight or whether they should fight — we’re just talking about the business,” said Ellerbe when speaking to FightHype.
“The Benavidez vs Canelo fight and Crawford vs Canelo, it’s no comparison. The Benavidez fight is bigger. It’s a much bigger fight.”
