I am ~10% body fat and can bench 1.67 x bodyweight, and my chest isn't where I would like it to be.
Face facts, things are not as cut and dried as this especially where strength to size ratios are involved.
I don't know what your chest looks like, but at 25% body fat is isn't going to be pretty, and it will look a whole lot better at <15%.
As for strength loss, hell especially as a beginner there is absolutely no reason for your strength to decrease noticeably during a cut. Keep your protein intake at 1g/lb bodyweight, make clean food choices, and keep lifting heavy. If you bust your ass in the gym and stop worrying so much about the details you may actually gain strength, look a whole hell of a lot better, and be making progress instead of worrying about a 1.3xbodyweight bench or some other triviality.
