Published 10/20/2021, 9:42 AM EDT


IBF super-middleweight champion Caleb Plant has been in 21 professional fights and has won all of them so far. However, none of those bouts were anywhere close to his upcoming scrap against the P4P King Canelo Alvarez. On November 6, ‘Sweethands’ will come across the toughest test of his career in his most lucrative bout.

Caleb Plant said, “I think the biggest reason that they should purchase the pay-per-view for any fight fan or just sports fan, in general, is not only are you witnessing probably the biggest fight of the year. But you are witnessing history when you buy this fight.”

“You know, there’s never been an undisputed super middleweight in the history of our sport. And come November 6, one is going to be crowned. So when you are tuning in, you are witnessing boxing history.”

After vanquishing Callum Smith in December and Billy Joe Saunders in May, Canelo Alvarez has put his hands on the WBA, WBC, and WBO world super-middleweight titles. He is just short of Caleb Plant’s IBF belt to grab all four straps at 168. Meanwhile, Plant also has an undefeated record to defend. This turns the nearing fight into a must-win situation for both men.
