After splitting from the Golden Boy Promotions, Alvarez has been a free agent, working on a fight-to-fight basis with Matchroom Kingpin Eddie Hearn.

However, the possible deal with FOX can finally bring an official network for the unified super middleweight champion. Eddie Hearn recently connected with DAZN Boxing to address several scenarios, including Canelo Alvarez’s next fight.

There, he mentioned the scheduled FOX deal, which might begin with a 168 lbs unification fight between Canelo Alvarez and Caleb Plant.

The 3-fight deal can also come down to one fight, depending on several factors. However, the Mexican star is most likely to face  IBF champion Caleb Plant next. The bout can rightly go down by the end of this year.

After grabbing the WBO title from Billy Joe Saunders in May, Canelo Alvarez has reportedly hit the gym. So, we can expect him to enter the ring this year and leap towards his goal of attaining all four 168 lbs belts.

Following his resurgence in December as a super middleweight boxer, Alvarez has already accomplished the WBA, WBO, WBC, and Ring championships.

According to Caleb Plant’s social media post, he has been in the gym for a long time. That said, the undefeated IBF champion seems ready for the biggest test in his pro boxing career so far.

While it would also be an exceptional payday for ‘Sweet Hands’, Caleb Plant will primarily look to add some respect to his name. Do you think Caleb Plant will stand a chance against Canelo Alvarez?
