Canelo Alvarez Wants Caleb Plant: ‘I’m Coming’

After taking care of WBO super middleweight champion Billy Joe Saunders in stopping him in the eighth round last Saturday night, WBA/WBC champ Canelo Alvarez is now targeting IBF belt-holder Caleb ‘Sweethands’ Plant for the undisputed championship in September.



Canelo (56-1-2, 38 KOs) captured his third title at 168 last Saturday with an injury stoppage of Saunders (30-1, 14 KOs) at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

Saunders had been making the same mistake all night by leaning forward, practically begging Canelo to hit him with uppercuts.

Despite eating repeated uppercuts, Saunders failed to make changes to how he was f*ghting and ultimately cost him dearly when Alvarez landed a right uppercut to his right eye in the eighth.

Saunders suffered an eye injury, which is believed to be a fractured orbital bone. Rather than come out for the ninth, Saunders wisely quit on his stool.

Canelo’s promoter Eddie Hearn is hoping that the 28-year-old ‘Sweethands’ Plant and his management at PBC aren’t difficult when negotiating that f*ght, as they would prefer this match to happen next.

Hearn says he’s open to having Canelo f*ght on DAZN or FOX, but obviously, he would much prefer it to be the latter.

FOX will need to make a bigger offer than DAZN if they want the f*ght to be on their network platform, as they’re going to have to come up with a lot of money to make that happen.

“That’s the plan,” Canelo told DAZN about his intentions on facing Plant next for the undisputed super middleweight championship in September. “That’s the plan to go for the [IBF] belt, and I’m coming, man. I’m coming, my friend,” said Canelo in sending a message to Caleb Plant.

There are bigger f*ghts out there that the U.S and worldwide boxing public would prefer that Canelo take next rather than face Plant, but he’s got tunnel vision right now.

Canelo wants to make history by becoming the undisputed 168-lb champion, even though Plant is a lackluster opponent.

It looked bad the way Plant turned down a f*ght with former two-time WBC 168-lb champion David Benavidez recently after his victory over 38-year-old Caleb Truax. Instead of taking the f*ght with Benavidez to make the match with Canelo a bigger affair, Plant turned it down, saying that his left hand was buried from the Truax match, and he wanted to rest it.



“It’s the only f*ght,” Eddie Hearn said to DAZN about Alvarez only wanting IBF belt-holder Plant next. “Hopefully, Caleb Plant feels the same way.”

“For Canelo, the Caleb Plant f*ght is obviously what we want to do,” said Eddie Hearn to Secondsout. “He [Canelo] want to be undisputed; he’s won all the belts in the [super midldeweight] division.

“There shouldn’t be any major issues making that f*ght, I hope not, because he [Canelo] can f*ght on any platform he wants. I’ll deal with Caleb Plant’s manager, and he works with Al Haymon.

They may turn around and say, ‘We have to do it on FOX,’ and if they put the money up, we can do that. But there’s going to be a lot of money on the table from DAZN for Caleb Plant as well.

“I’m relaxed; I just want to see that f*ght. Canelo has been on a fantastic run. He boxed Callum Smith, Yildirim, and Billy Joe Saunders. Now he’s going to box Caleb Plant. That’s going to be four f*ghts in nine months. That’s quite remarkable.

“I think in Vegas,” Hearn said when asked where the Canelo vs. Plant f*ght will likely take place. “One of the beauties about Canelo being a network-free agent is the absence of politics.

“The DAZN numbers tonight were absolutely off the charts, so they’re going to make a massive play for the [Canelo – Plant] f*ght. FOX will have to put up a lot of money for the f*ght if they want it as well.

“So Canelo is sitting there smiling, and that’s the beauty of being in his position. For me, I’ll go out and get the best deal for Canelo Alvarez. I’ll make sure he and Eddy are comfortable with the f*ght where it is,” said Hearn.

I hope the f*ght with Plant gets made if Plant gets past his next mandatory opponent.

Surprising to see Canelo wanting to f*ght defensive f*ghters back to back, but props to him for wanting to unify the belts and taking on anyone that's worth boxing him.

Don’t nobody Wanna see Canelo f*ght plant, plant ain’t beat a got damn soul out here. He ain’t even had a PPV f*ght yet. He gotta go up to 175 or down to 160. Yes Canelo is a beast but we can all agree he ain’t had a f*ght yet where it was 50/50 on who would win.

That he did. 2nd he won. He don’t even bring up GGG name any more. GGG ain’t the same because of his age but I’d pay to see Canelo f*ght GGG again before he f*ght plant. Plant is grade A trash

The f*ght with Plant will get done this was all planned out earlier this year and is why Caleb didn’t take any other f*ghts after Truax and has been training/running this whole time since lol.

Anybody saying Canelo should f*ght anyone other than Plant next isn't a true boxing fan. It's a historic match up at 168. No one has ever held the WBO, WBA, IBF, and WBC at Super Middleweight ever.

He don’t gotta do sh*t. He’s the P4P king. They gotta do something to deserve a f*ght

Charlo a bum scared to move up. Spence is 147 Id rather see him f*ght Bud. They could always f*ght each other if they really wanted to.

Plant has the belt Canelo needs to unify super middle weight for the first time, why would he care about a guy who’s champ at a lower weight class.... there’s like 4 other middleweights holding belts in Andrades weight class he needs to be calling out

Canelo stops plant. He doesn't have the power to keep Canelo honest and he simply can't outbox him for 12 rounds without slowing down

Plant already cleared out his mandatory. That was the purpose of the truax f*ght to make sure he wouldn't have a mandatory coming up soon

Plant is a beast,,, but the only way he is beating Canelo is by being extremely willing to bang, & then banging him out. As usual, that looks HIGHLY unlikely...

Canelo is tough as nails, you gotta really back him down and go forward all f*ght with him, nobody wants to do it

Plant is a better boxer then bjs to me he just needs a lil more seasoning before Canelo at least one f*ght with a better boxer...at this point I think his inexperience at this level will be why he loses...

Charlo would be a good f*ght...Charlo showed in the Derevyanchenko f*ght that he is a really good f*ghter not just a can Crusher at 160....i know Charlo wants to f*ght GGG but Golovkin doesn’t want that smoke....

Andrade needs to stop...he had trouble with that bum a*s whiteboy Canelo would sleep him

Plant next..then Benavidez. Stay on schedule. Forget the other bums at 160 unless they want to come up and f*ght Benavidez first.

There ain’t enough training in the world to help plant beat Canelo. He just ain’t good enough. Plant doesn’t make it past the 4th or 5th.
