Many of us go this route

I went the other way. Lol

Looking like the Rock in Central Intelligence


MaveInfinite

fucking hell.


gorillawarfareman

Benavidez has that former fat kid strength. It’s real folks.


MaveInfinite

former fat kid anger, chip on his shoulder. As a fat kid who never lost the weight..trust me..it's real.


fadeddreams555

Kind of sad that there were higher expectations for his brother before the gunshot incident.


coder0704

considering his performance against crawford was post gunshot incident, I'd say he had a ton of potential.


TheFlyingWriter

I think it was 14 weeks after gun shot resulting in a severed femoral artery. Arguably Bud’s toughest fight. Unfortunate, Jr is a beast.


RRR04_

Mad transformation


lamarcuswallace

The quality of Elie's videos still hasn't improved after all these years. lol. You would think he try to invest with better quality than to record with a fucking smartphone. smh


reddit_boxing

He's probably the most watched boxing channel in all of YouTube with low quality videos. I too would keep all the profit instead of unnecessary investment


NikolaJung

I like it 🤷🏻‍♂️ makes it seem less.. idk how to explain it… staged? Like it’s just more authentic


Foreveramateur

YouTube boxing journalism is laughably dogshit. It's just waiting for somebody with good equipment and isn't a charisma blackhole to come in and make it big


IGetTheCash

There is definitely an opportunity just waiting for ANYONE with some basic social skills and decent equipment to get plenty of money.


A1_PunisherPipkins

Baddest man for beating a past it Lemeiux?


bdgg2000

That’s what I thought too. I love Lemieux but he’s on the back 9 of his career and he has no business at 168. I knew he was getting demolished. He should retire.


Tea_master_666

Lemieux was a small 160 pounder, had no business at 168. Not everybody is a phenom like Canelo is.


bdgg2000

I agree. I hated to see him take punishment like that. Lemieux was always an exciting fighter with a ton of heart. Hope he retires.


MaveInfinite

even Canelo had a limit. I legit thought dude was gonna face Usyk next.


Tea_master_666

Nah man. I've been watching boxing for very long time. There are limits to human body. Canelo was gassing at middleweight, and he was not necessarily the strongest puncher. His biggest assets are the defence and his chin. That's not enough to be competitive at LHW. Joe Smith or Beterbiyev actually might crack Canelo's chin.


MaveInfinite

Maybe..but I hate that the narrative is “Canelo was always trash” and severely under estimating Bivol. There is a reason Canelo has all those belts. Beterbeiv is just as good as Bivol. Joe Smith, not really, IMO. Canelo should have enough skill to beat Smith.


Tea_master_666

Canelo is a generational talent. No doubt about it. But Canelo is not the only one. He is super hyped now, but somebody will come along the way again, and we will talk about that person. That's how boxing works.


MaveInfinite

I was just thinking about this conspiracy theory today but...maybe the plan was for Canelo to lose to Bivol, beat GGG, and then beat Bivol all to generate hype. Why? Because I saw no promotion AT ALL for Canelo v Bivol. I honestly didnt even know it was going down till the last minute. I saw no promotion for it whatsover. just a little conspiracy theory..


Tea_master_666

Nah man. They really underestimated Bivol. They thought they can walk him down. DAZN thought Canelo's name will sell the fight, and instead pumped the resources promoting Taylor-Serrano fight.


MaveInfinite

cant believe HBO died for DAZN to walk. that being said, give it up to the ladies. They put on a clash.


MaveInfinite

everyone knew he was getting demolished. he still has heart tho..I say he should go back down and maybe had some good matches with more up and comers. Or retire.


warm_baller

His resume isn’t great but he’s clearly very skilled based off the eye test. You can spot talent like that


MaveInfinite

there are so many up and comers in boxing, it's crazy.


thenotoriouscucuy

I mean that’s who he has to fight because everyone else is duckin


FwampFwamp88

Na, For being youngest 168 champ in history at 20 yrs old. Sparring GGG and Pavlik when he was 15 years old. knocking out 23 of 26 opponents and now being the most avoided fighter since GGG.


A1_PunisherPipkins

How tf is sparring triple G and Pavlik a factor 😂


FwampFwamp88

You don’t just spar GGG at 15. This dude. Really is a dog. He wouldn’t just lay down and give his belts to Canelo like those other scrubs did. And yes, know he lost his belts on the scale and cocaine. But you know everyone in 168 is terrified of him.


fatch0deBoi34

Bro I sparred Bobby Lashley when he was doing mma multiple times as a 140lb 18 year old lol.. It’s sparring, not fighting


MatterUpbeat8803

What was that like?


fatch0deBoi34

I mean he’s not the best fighter in mma history, but when you’re a trained 6’3 250ish lb fighter you can probably fuck up most people on the earth lol. He was super cool, barely put any power into it, but it still felt like tree trunks hitting my face. We had a smaller ring in this gym and there was basically no room to use footwork against a guy that big, so a lot of it was me just trying to pot shot with head movement as much as possible. It was pretty cool memory to have tbh. Sparred some other pro boxers in my boxing life, Mike Alvarado for instance, but Bobby Lashley always stands out because of the meme of it all lol


liftbikerun

I read that as "three trunks" and I was seriously wondering what kind of sparing you were doing......


fatch0deBoi34

We’d spar in the nude at that gym. In the sauna. Without headgear..


liftbikerun

Welp there came the third trunk


ClydeBeanFabian

Thats awesome!


A1_PunisherPipkins

Last I checked being the baddest man means you are the top p4p boxer... I think Benavidez will eventually be there but right now he is nowhere near top 10


samuelalvarezrazo

FwampFwamp88

Bro exactly. There are so many stories of GGG cracking dudes ribs during sparring. I should have said he’s the new boogeyman of boxing. Because rn he and Janibek are the dudes nobody wants to fight. Plant and charlo have been dead silent all weekend after running their mouths for years.


Major-Yellow-812

He’s definitely not avoided. Just Charlo doesn’t want to fight him.


Hendrixlove86

Lmao God you sound young and dumb, Benavidez sure looks good fighting little fighters.


FwampFwamp88

I know my boxing. Yes, this was a bit of a shitpost, but Benavidez will dominate 168 and 175 divisions for years to come. Remember this post.


Melansjf1

David? Is that you?


coder0704

And people wonder why lost his title on the scales, old habits die hard 😂


Feeling-Pipe-7461

Usyk was on the same stuff Michael Jackson was?


TysonsSmokingPartner

Nah he started to feel I guess


boXXpert

Pacquiao knows real talent. He let this boy share the gym with him.


Fuck_Jannies165

Benavidez let *Pacquiao* share the gym with him /s


boXXpert

That fat David boy was the boss! Happy to see him soaring high.


Bobo_Balde2

Freddie was training his brother


No_Exchange_7818

I can’t believe it either because he’s not.


gdata

Just see it from this perspective: people gave Bivol craps because they said he was beating nobodies until a couple weeks ago. We could say the same about Benavidez at this point. He might be good, but let's see if he could beat bigger names and then call him the baddest man in boxing.


fadeddreams555

Only difference is Bivol has nearly 300 fights as an amateur, has fought since he was 5, and was just a bad style for Canelo. I believe Benavidez has learned on the go and through sparring. That said, his grit and size at 168lb is a major factor.


MaveInfinite

end of the day, Bivol was just too big. Same reason GGG ducked SoG.


[deleted]

Craig Richards, Jean Pascal and Joe smith jr are very solid opponents and are more skilled than any of Benavidez competition so far!!!! I’m not sure Benavidez beats Craig Richard or Joe smith, real 50/50 fights and Pascal is 55/45 for Bena at this point, Bivol beats all the cans Benavidez has beat no doubt…. Dirrel, Lemuiex, and Jean Love are pretty mediocre opposition


Bobo_Balde2

Fans are fickle,


TysonsSmokingPartner

Doesn’t look like he’s Canelo. I thought the guy was a ginger mexican.


[deleted]

Puberty


TysonsSmokingPartner

Oh my bad. Totally forgot.


C42if0rniaGrown

Lmao


sscfc91

This explains the pear body shape he currently has


Bobo_Balde2

Bet he was bullied a lot and it put a massive chip on his shoulder.


diegunu

Probably ate that massive chip


diegunu

Probably ate that massive chip


donks4stonks

The biggest chip bappa


[deleted]

Oh wow Beterbiev looks really different. Puberty eh? He even changes ethnicity?!


Fuck_Jannies165

I like how this joke has been made 10 different times in this thread but each one has a different fighter


TysonsSmokingPartner

He even managed to lose nearly all of his body fat, managed to grow a beard and forgot he spoke perfect English. Puberty hits different.


Bobo_Balde2

The guy who Callum Johnson had out on his feet?


[deleted]

The guy who beat Callum Johnson


SmokyMcpot527

Baddest man In boxing 🤣


[deleted]

Who was the last fighter like Benavidez taht got this gassed up?🤔 I don’t understand how people give him credit for crushing bum after bum, let him fight Plant or Charlo so this boy can finally get some credit, yeha he has ok hands but he’s literally never been tested…it’s time to see him face some worthy opposition he passes the eye test, now let’s see what’s up foreal foreal enough with the midgets already.


StuckInTheJunga

He didn't


reddit_boxing

Idk what boxing you watch


Wavepops

Who said David is the baddest in boxing lol


cbzez

“baddest man” 🤣🤣🤣


Skip_BaylessGoat

He still has almost the exact same personality and Reactions.


thewizard579

Looks like Kenan from Kenan and Kel 😂


mynameisjeffhorn

Hasn't bear anyone. Behave


Gloved_Up

This isn't Jake Paul?


diegunu

So we're just gonna pretend like Charlie Z doesn't exist?


vHezoTheGoat

This isn’t Janibek


A1_PunisherPipkins

I hope Top rank promotes the fuck out of Janibek like HBO did GGG. He is so fun to watch


reddit_boxing

HBO promoting the shit out of GGG is the reason they went out of business


slickvik9

No


FwampFwamp88

I’m a huge Benavidez fan so this was just kinda a shitpost because of last night, and this videos trips me out. But Janibek might be new GGG. A very bad man. Him and David def the most avoided fighters atm.


Bobo_Balde2

New Matt Korobov


That_Sweet_Science

Damn. Talk about a glow up.


MaveInfinite

wait, that's janibek alimkhanuly?


Osbre

idk, davis looks the same


lord-of-war-1

Man.... more clickbait. That's not even Jake Paul!


Narcosavages
