Plant vs Medina To Be Added To FOX card
3KingsBoxing.com has learned that Caleb Plant, 16-0 10 KO, will face Rogelio ‘Porky’ Medina, 38-8 32 KO, in an IBF super middleweight eliminator for the number #2 ranking slot, which is currently vacant.
Plant vs. Medina will be the co-feature bout to the Victor Ortiz vs Devon Alexander bout. The event is set to be televised by FOX and will take place at the Don Haskins Center in El Paso, Texas.
Plant won two lopsided decisions in 2017 with the last coming over Andrew Hernandez back in September. He is currently ranked number 6 by the IBF.
Medina sufdered his first stoppage loss since 2013, when David Benavidez put him away in the eighth round of a WBC eliminator last May in Texas. He bounced back in September, when he picked up a third round stoppage of Daniel Yocupicio.
The winner of this fight would be one step closer to getting a title shot. Caleb Truax is the current IBF champion after beating James DeGale last month that was 3KingsBoxing.com’s upset of the year.
