Ellerbe is enthusiastic about Benavidez’s skills and is already looking ahead to potential matchups with top fighters in the division.

Despite some critics feeling that Benavidez is jumping the line by moving up to 175 and immediately challenging for the belts, Ellerbe is confident in his abilities. He believes that Benavidez’s hand speed and ferocious fighting style will make him a force to be reckoned with in the light heavyweight division.

Although Benavidez has faced some criticism for his opposition and fighting style, Ellerbe remains impressed by his performances. He acknowledges that Benavidez will face tougher challenges at 175 but is confident in his ability to succeed.

Ellerbe also teases a potential showdown between Benavidez and Canelo Alvarez, but acknowledges the financial barriers that may prevent the fight from happening anytime soon. Nonetheless, he remains optimistic about Benavidez’s future in the sport.

As for Gvozdyk, Ellerbe dismisses claims that he is past his prime, emphasizing that he is still a formidable opponent despite his age and time away from the sport. While acknowledging the challenges ahead, Ellerbe remains confident in Benavidez’s ability to rise to the occasion and make a name for himself in the light heavyweight division.
