Caleb Plant has a very philosophical argument over the subject of money. The 30-year-old shared it on social media on Saturday. Mingling the concept of money with life, the Tennessee native put forth his opinion. Though ‘SweetHands’ does it often, it’s very unusual. Because prizefighters are not known for giving deep thoughts to things. They are known for aggression and making their way out in a bold manner. But Plant is different. Unlike his boxing community, he tries to come up with logical stands.

This is the reason when the world is part of the rat race and is blindly chasing money, he tries to come up with his school of thought. He wrote on Twitter, “The goal was never to get money, It was to KEEP IT. Any other way is working backwards. What good is hustling your whole life to something better. Just to end up right back where you started.”

When fans came across this, they shared their opinion on it.

A fan admired Plant for his reasonable take and wrote, “I’m starting to realize why a lot of boxers hate you. They’re all brawn no brain. You piss them off when you say logical s**t like this. The shit that makes them feel stupid. Boxers: “You’re a p***y” Plant: “We’ve all made that walk. We’ve all seen them lights. Ain’t no pu****s at this level.”

Plant shared these thoughts when he is closing toward probably one of the biggest fights of his career.
