Undefeated IBF Super Middleweight World Champion Caleb “Sweethands” Plant Continues To Declare Intent To Become The First Undisputed World Super Middleweight Champion In Boxing History As He Approaches His Clash against 168-pound WBC / WBO / WBA Champion Canelo lvarez which takes place on Saturday, November 6 live on SHOWTIME PPV at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas at a Premier Boxing Champions event.
A world champion since January 2019, Plant has managed three title defenses since snatching the belt from Jose Uzcategui by unanimous decision. Much like he did in the Uzcategui fight, Plant seeks to reverse the script and mark another upheaval in the story path against Canelo.
Tickets for the live event are on sale now and can be purchased on AXS.com. The event is promoted by Canelo Promotions and TGB Promotions and sponsored by Hennessy and Value.
Here’s what Plant and his co-trainer Justin Gamber had to say about November 6 and beyond:
âI just stay relaxed and let the process unfold on its own. We have half the camp done and half the camp to do. I am ahead and my weight is good.
âI don’t think I need to be more motivated than I already am to fight for the undisputed super middleweight championship of the world. It’s a fight we both want to win. Maybe Canelo’s emotions overflowed at the press conference and I reacted. These things happen.
âI just stay focused, locked in and focused. We’re just planning to finish this camp the same way I started it, and it’s at a high level.
âI feel really good. Everything has been worked out. I feel like I have all the skills in the world and a great team around me. When the bell rings, I just can’t wait to show the world what I can do.
âI believe there are a handful of things I’m better than Canelo in the ring at. But the only way to find out is to log in on November 6. What I say now won’t matter, people aren’t going to believe me anyway. I’d rather show you than tell you.
âI’ve only had 21 fights as a professional, but a lot of those fights have been on the big stage. I have been fighting at a high level for a long time and have a lot of experience under my belt. All this will help me on the night of the fight.
âI know it’s the biggest fight I’ve had so far in my career, and that’s the goal, to keep moving forward. I want every fight to be bigger than the last. It is not something that I did not ask for. I want it and I feel like I’m prepared for it.
âBeing unchallenged will forever cement my name in the boxing history books. Thatâs why Iâm doing this. This is what I set out to accomplish when I first started boxing.
JUSTIN GAMBER, Plant co-trainer
âCaleb will be 110% ready on November 6th. Believe me when I say there isn’t a fighter on earth who doesn’t have weaknesses. Canelo is where he is because he has earned his place. He’s a great fighter, but he’s not a perfect fighter. He has weaknesses and we are going to exploit them.
âI know people overlook Caleb. It’s perfect for us. Caleb is like me because all of our lives when someone tells us we can’t do something, we like to prove them wrong. It pushes us even more.
âI was surprised by what happened at the press conference. If anything, it made it more personal. It has always been important to beat him, but now I have a little extra boost on my shoulder.
