Gvozdik spoke about the importance of the fight with Benavides

Famous Ukrainian welterweight Oleksandr Gvozdyk spoke about the upcoming fight with David Benavides

"About a week ago, my trainer Marco Contreras called me and says: "Look, there is such an option". I said, "Let's go!" The next day I signed the contract. At first, I went over it all in my head. I didn't come back to boxing to box with such level of opponents as I had in the last fight. I came back to box at the highest level. And now I'm being offered exactly that opportunity. I resumed my career with the goal of coming back and boxing for a title. Beterbiev has three titles at my weight and Bivol has another one. It's unrealistic to make a fight with them now. After all, they will box each other first, then most likely have a rematch. The Saudis say that then, perhaps, the winner will make a fight in the next weight category with Opetaia. I mean, I'm well aware that it's going to take a very long time and it's very hard to get them. And all of a sudden, I get an opportunity like this. First of all, to box on PPV. Secondly, for the belt. Third, automatically I become a mandatory challenger," - quotes the boxer vRINGe.

Recall, at stake in the fight between Gvozdyk and Benavides will stand the belt of the temporary world champion in the light-heavyweight division of the WBC.
