Canelo Alvarez and IBF super-middleweight champion Caleb ‘Sweethands’ Plant have reportedly agreed to a deal for November for the undisputed 168-lb championship on FOX Sports PPV. This will be a dual promotion between Premier Boxing Champions [PBC] and Canelo Promotions
IBF super-middleweight champion Caleb Plant (21-0, 12 KOs) believes he’s on the verge of writing his name into the history books of boxing forever on November 6th by beating WBA/WBC/WBO champion Canelo Alvarez to become the first undisputed champ at 168, whatever happens in the remainder of Plant’s career after his fight with Canelo (56-1-2, 38 KOs) on November 6th, he’ll always have his name in the history books as the first fighter to unify the 168-lb division.
The Tennesse native Plant is the underdog in this fight, and he’s going to have to put in a special performance for him to defeat the superstar Canelo to take his three titles on the night.
For Plant, 28, a shot at winning, he’s going to have to fight hard for the full 12 rounds instead of just 6. Caleb tends to run out of gas at the midpoint in his fights, and he’s easy to hit after that.
In Plant’s only fight of distinction during his nine-year professional career against Jose Uzcategui, he was marked up in a hurry in the second half of the contest after he gassed out in their fight in 2019.
Caleb ‘Sweethands’ Plant says he’s ready to beat Canelo Alvarez in consecutive fights if he wants a rematch after he beats him on November 6th in their undisputed 168-lb championship in Las Vegas.
IBF super-middleweight champion Plant (21-0, 12 KOs) is confident that he’s going to relieve Canelo (56-1-2, 38 KOs) of his WBA, WBC & WBO titles in their fight on FOX Sports PPV, and then it’ll be up to him if he wants to fight a rematch or not.
Plant says if Canelo chooses not to fight him a second time, he’s going to move on and defeat former two-time WBC super middleweight champion David Benavidez, and then Jermall Charlo.
Wins over those big three – Benavidez, Canelo, and Charlo – will cement Plant as one of the best fighters of this generation.
