Coming into this fight, Caleb Plant is the heavy underdog and per usual, fans are looking at Canelo Alvarez to do what he does best -be the best.

As the two champions are now looking to leave it all on the line for the super-middleweight throne, here’s a detailed breakdown of nearly  everything you need to know about this mega-168 lbs clash-

Canelo vs. Plant Preview

Growing up in Guadalajara in Mexico, Canelo Alvarez has spent half his life perfecting the art. Today, he has the money, the cars, the estates and all things nice, but when he steps into Eddy Reynoso’s gym in San Diego, all he sees in the mirror by the ropes is that same hungry 15-year-old with big dreams to make a dent in the sport.

Much like every other fight he’s stepped into, he is once again confident in his abilities and truly believes that he will become boxing’s sixth-ever undisputed champion. He also sees Plant as a good fighter but does not see anything truly special in him.

Leading up to this mega super-middleweight clash, the Tennessee native, Caleb Plant, has made it clear that he is not banking on anyone to believe in him. At the recent action-packed press conference, the Tennessee native said –

I don’t need you guys to believe in me when I say what I say. Matter of fact, I want you to keep doing what you’re doing and keep not believing in me because you’re the very reason that I’m here.

You remember what you said Jose Uzcategui was going do to me? You said he was going to dog walk me. And what happened? He got his a** dog walked and he got set on his a** twice,” said Caleb Plant.
