Caleb Plant Considers the Light Heavyweight Division to be His Limit!


It’s been four months since Caleb “Sweethands” Plant (20-1, 12KOs) was stopped in eleven rounds, surrendering his unbeaten record and IBF 168-pound title against Canelo Alvarez (57-1-2, 39KOs). While he was unsuccessful in his attempt to become the undisputed 168-pound champion, he’s seemingly put that loss behind him.

As it currently stands, despite the speculation of a fight with two-time WBC 168-pound champion Anthony Dirrell being on the agenda next for Plant, nothing has been set in stone. However, that hasn’t stopped the former champion from doing interviews ahead of his expected return to the ring in the summer.

Sweethands sat down with ThaBoxingVoice to discuss a wide variety of things. Having had success in one division already, Plant was asked about a possible move up in weight. He had the following to say:

“I might be capped at 75 pounds (light heavyweight), but I have no problem making weight at 68 pounds (super middleweight).”

It’s clear that Plant’s preference is to continue campaigning at super middleweight, and how could you blame him? He’s only one fight removed from losing his title. On top of that, there are still plenty of significant fights for him to have in the weight class. However, when the time comes to move up in weight, don’t expect it to be any higher than the light heavyweight division.
