We’ve already seen some iconic boxing bouts this year, but the Alvarez vs Plant fight holds different importance altogether. This is because this fight comprises all the 168-pound titles on the line, and the winner will be the maiden undisputed super-middleweight champion of the world.

As a result, for a fight of this level, both the technicians are giving their all in the gym. Alvarez, the favorite in this fight, is leaving no stones unturned in his preparations. He’s had umpteen boxing bouts until now, but the p4p star is seeming in the shape of his life ahead of this high-class bout.

Recently, Little Giant Boxing shared training footage of the Mexican boxing star, wherein he looked amazing.

Canelo moved his attention completely to the super-middleweight landscape in 2020. He fought the likes of Callum, Smith, Avni Yildirim, and Billy Joe Saunders in his pursuit to bag all the titles on the line. He outclassed every opponent in style, and now, there’s only a single hurdle present in front of him.

Plant and Alvarez have a massive rivalry that began when the duo met at a press conference after their fight’s announcement. They even entered a brawl, and the security had to jump in to stop the matter from getting escalated.

Is Caleb Plant an easy opponent for Canelo Alvarez?

Plant will walk into this fight with an undefeated stint. Yet, he’ll have the underdog status because Canelo’s experience is paramount.

On top of that, the Mexican star is an elite oppressive-styled fighter, along with notable defensive abilities in his game.

That said, this fight might turn out to be a cakewalk for the unified super-middleweight champ. However, if Plant wants to leave the ring with a win, he will have to come up with something out of the box.
