As the Alvarez vs Plant matchup has already sent shock waves in the fight world, many fans and fighters have given their prediction and analysis for this fight.

Recently, the internet sensation, Ryan Garcia, gave his prediction for this clash. Speaking to ESNEWS, he said, “I feel like Canelo’s gonna knock him out. Again, no disrespect to Caleb. I respect all fighters but, Canelo’s just a way better fighter. I watched Caleb Plant fight, he’s good, just not as good as Canelo.”

Ever since Canelo moved to the 168-pound roster, he had his vision set on bagging all the titles on the line. In a pursuit to become the undisputed king of the super-middleweights, Alvarez has battered every opponent he’s faced in this division.

In fact, in his last fight, Saul Alvarez took on the toughest test in the super-middleweight division. He went toe-to-toe against Billy Joe Saunders and annihilated ‘Superb’ in a sensational fashion, thus claiming a win via RTD in round 8.

Now, with a string of wins in this division, he is all charged up to give his best against the IBF champ, Caleb Plant.

Is Caleb Plant an easy opponent to crack for Canelo Alvarez?

‘Sweethands’ is an undefeated talent in the stacked super-middleweight division. Until now, he’s proven his mettle to one and all by beating some stern opponents. However, he’s never faced someone as elite as Canelo.

On the flip side, the Mexican boxer has gone on against the toughest of opponents. Hence, on paper, anyone would back Alvarez to claim the win.

But predicting anything at this stage is too early, as Caleb Plant will not be an easy opponent or a pushover. That said, it’ll be interesting to see how this fight between the two plays out.

Do you agree with Garcia’s comments?
