Plant will move into the Alvarez fight as an underdog. However, he has a massive opportunity in hand to pull off one of the biggest upsets in modern-day boxing. Until now, ‘Sweethands’ retained his undefeated stint in the perfect manner. However, it holds no value, as Alvarez is no stranger to ending undefeated streaks.

Regardless of that, Plant is fully focused on his training regimes. As the Tennessee native certainly knows he might not get an opportunity like this in the future, he wants to make the most out of this appearance.

On top of that, Plant and Alvarez engaged in a brawl a few days back. This eventually fueled ‘Sweethands’ to do even better in his workouts to give the p4p star a rugged outing on November 6.
