With just three weeks left for the match, Caleb Plant, who was in a chat with Fight Hub TV, shed some light on his training regimes and more.

He said, “Camp has been good. Weight’s good, sparring’s been good, tracking my miles, everything is on point, and like you said, we’re halfway through the camp. And I’m just looking to finish the second half the way I started the first half.”

Plant was waiting for this undisputed fight ever since he beat Caleb Truax, who was his mandatory challenger. On the other hand, Canelo kept winning, thus making himself viable for one of the biggest fights in boxing history.

A few days back, Alvarez and Plant were involved in their pre-fight press conference. At the event, both the stalwarts entered a massive brawl and had to be separated by security. This incident only added to Plant and Alvarez’s rivalry.
