From the ‘horse’s mouth’ Caleb Plant is ready for Canelo Alvarez now!
For a very hot second, IBF world super middleweight champion Caleb “Sweethands” Plant (20-0, 12 KO’s) looked to have hit the jackpot. Rumors said that he had a December fight date with boxing cash-cow WBA super world middleweight champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (53-1-2, 36 KO’s). However, nearly as quickly as the news broke, the potential prizefight flatlined due to promotional reasons. Yet, Plant was not willing to walk away without being heard.
In a recent session going live on his social media, Sweethands let it be known he is ready to fight. In his opinion, it did not matter if the fight took place immediately or somewhere in the first quarter of 2021. The slick boxing Tennessee native also made it clear that he was not the hold up to a showdown.
“But I’m ready, I don’t need no more time, no nothing. So fuck what you heard, fuck what they’re talking about. You are hearing from the horse’s mouth, I’m ready!”
“…I’m ready, end of the year, beginning of the year, don’t matter to me.”
At the present moment, it is highly unlikely that Plant will be Canelo’s next opponent, those are just the breaks. Nevertheless, he realizes he is bitterly close to securing that bout. So, Sweethands will attempt to make every play he can for an early year dust-up. Let us see how it plays out for him.
