David Benavidez vs. Demetrius Andrade L.A. news conference

David Benavidez and Demetrius Andrade on Tuesday in Los Angeles took part in the final news conference before their 168-pound pay-per-view fight Saturday at Michelob Ultra Arena in Las Vegas.

Benavidez (27-0, 23 KOs) could face Canelo Alvarez next if he’s victorious.

“I’ve been training for 3½ months and I put everything into this training camp,” the former two-time beltholder said. “I know what’s in front of me. I know he’s a great fighter but I’m going to strike when I see the openings. I’m going to try to knock him out.

“I’m going to give the fans what they want to see. They want to see a war, so let’s go to war.”

The fight is also huge for Andrade (32-0, 19 KOs), a former two-division titleholder who could end up in the ring with Alvarez if he wins.

“It’s war time baby,” Andrade said. “It’s time to fight. David and I agreed to make this happen and now we’re here. At the end of the day, I have nowhere to go and he has nowhere to go.”

Benavidez’s older brother, Jose Benavidez Jr. (28-2-1, 19 KOs) will challenge middleweight titleholder Jermall Charlo (32-0, 22 KOs) in the co-feature.
