Canelo explains why he's not taking the fight with Benavides

Saul Alvarez, the absolute super middleweight champion of the world, explained why he won't give in to public pressure and agree to a bout with undefeated David Benavides.

"The truth of the matter is that I have always fought the ones they said I supposedly don't want to fight. I'm in a position that I deserve and I can do whatever I want to do. I'm not going to go along with anyone. People like that are never satisfied with anything. I will do what I want," - quotes Alvarez Los Angeles Times.

Recall, on May 4, Canelo will fight with his compatriot Jaime Munguia.
