Caleb Plant Wants a Fight with Jermall Charlo in 2024

One-time IBF super middleweight champion Caleb “Sweethands” Plant (22-2, 13KO) wants to finish something WBC middleweight champion Jermall “Hit Man” Charlo (32-0, 22KO) started outside the ring, inside it. The former champion has put a target on the back of Hit Man and wants the fight to happen next year.

When fighters have a history, it always adds a little more spice to the story. In this case, it was the slap heard throughout the boxing community as Sweethands laid hands on Charlo. The video of the incident went viral, and Plant later revealed the WBC champion’s behavior in front of his wife was the reason for knocking the taste out his mouth.


Sweethands spoke with Million Dollaz Worth Of Game and explained why that is a fight that needs to happen.

“I’m looking to fight Charlo next. That’s the fight that I want, and I know he’s been out for a minute. If he wants to get a tune-up, that’s perfectly fine with me, but by next year, we should be fighting.”

“You know we had a disagreement recently that had to get figured out. But, that would be a big fight for the fans. I know a lot of people want to see it, and that’s what I want next.”

Charlo has been M.I.A. from boxing since 2021, and has vowed to return by the end of the year. Plant is coming off a second defeat at the hands of two-time WBC champion David Benavidez on March 25. This is a very intriguing fight that has the right ingredients to make it worthy of wanting to see come to fruition.
