Canelo Alvarez vs Caleb Plant Title Fight Preview
The stage is set for history to be made inside the MGM Grand in Las Vegas this weekend. One of the biggest names in boxing, Alvarez, 31, has the opportunity to become the undisputed champion at 168 pounds. After entering boxing as a welterweight, Alvarez has not been afraid to move around the divisions. He’s fought at light heavyweight and super welterweight in addition to being a multi-weight champion at middleweight and now super middleweight. In his career he’s taken on Floyd Mayweather Jr., and taken down Miguel Cotto, Billy Joe Saunders, Callum Smith, Gennadiy Golovkin, and Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. across 16 years of work. Now Plant will join that list.
Despite being a couple of years younger than Alvarez, Plant’s professional debut came a number of years afterward. When Plant first stepped in the ring, Alvarez had already won and lost his super middleweight titles before starting his climb back to the top. Just five years after his first fight, Plant took down Jose Uzcategui at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California to take the IBF world super middleweight belt. He’s held onto the title ever since, with three successful defenses. His most recent defense was this past January against Caleb Truax.
Two fighters with knockout power, Plant will have both a five-inch height advantage and a four-inch reach advantage over Alvarez. Size isn’t everything, of course. Saturday we’ll see if Alvarez’s high profile, championship experience can win him unification in the division. Plant will surely do his part in the ring to be the one to leave with all of the hardware as well.
