According to David, Golovkin allowed him to train near him for a long time, which allowed Benvidez to significantly improve his fighting qualities.

“After I worked with Kelly Pavlik, I came in and sparred with Golovkin. I had a hell of a sparring with Golovkin. I worked with him for four years, after which a monster settled inside me. It showed me how to handle that kind of power and how to be able to handle that kind of IQ.

I have great respect for Golovkin. He was the only one who gave me so much attention. He is like a mentor to me. Golovkin was like a friend to me. He helped me, let me train at his training camp. I am very grateful to him. It was the turning point that made me the Mexican monster that I am today,” said Benavidez.

Recall that on March 25 in Las Vegas, Benavidez will share the ring with Caleb Plant.
