Munguia calling out Benavidez

Don't see Munguia being up to the task. Supermiddle? Munguia was an oversized superwelter not all that long ago. One in a long line of hyped Mexicans who build an unbeaten receord to the point their sell-by date passes. Middleweight isn't all that deep. I'd give Munguia a decent shot to rise to the top there. He's due to face Derevyanchenko; this may be billed as supermiddle, but both belong at 160. Benavidez-Munguia would be an exercise in cashing in on a Mexico vs Mexican/American spectacle. Perhaps it'd serve to keep Benavidez busy while Canelo pursues Bivol and further build Benavidez's bonafides for a shot at all the marbles at 168.

No, he's definitely a big kid, he easily fights at 168. I can see him ending up at 175 easily. And he DID beat Liam Smith and Spike O'Sullivan.
