Caleb Plant looks for another title shot as he calls out the WBC middleweight champion Jermall Charlo. He is fresh off a loss to the Mexican pound-for-pound king Canelo Alvarez. Plant lost his IBF super-middleweight title to Canelo and looks to go back to winning ways and have another belt wrapped around his waist.

The quickest way to do that is to challenge other champions. Since the super-middleweight division already has an ‘undisputed’ king, who Plant may not get to face soon, he looks to fight in another division. Jermall Charlo is the WBC’s middleweight champion and has also called out Canelo Alvarez.

If Caleb Plant can set up a fight against Jermall Charlo, the winner of the bout might set themselves up for a fight against Canelo. Plant took to his Twitter to call out Jermall Charlo. “You’ve been indirect @FutureOfBoxing so I’ll be straight forward. We can figure it out by the end of the year. UR EZ WORK.” Plant said.

Jermall Charlo does not have any opponents to fight at the moment and the champion is looking for a mega-fight in 2022. Charlo has already shown his interest in fighting either Canelo Alvarez or Gennady Golovkin. Although Caleb Plant is nowhere near Canelo or Triple G, a fight in the US will still draw crowds and sell well on PPV.

Caleb Plant gets into a war of words with Rocky Fielding

Keen to get into the ring again, Caleb Plant took shots at the former WBA super-middleweight champion Rocky Fielding. The only thing the Brit and the American have in common, other than that, both were champions at once. Interestingly, Plant and Fielding had lost their belts to Canelo Alvarez.
