The IBF wastes no time declaring Caleb Plant as the mandatroy shortly after naming Uzcategui as the new champion.
Since being named the new IBF super middleweight champion, Jose Uzcategui has been ordered to face the #2 ranked contender Caleb Plant. Plant (17-0, 10KOs) is coming off of a hard fought unanimous decision against tough veteran “Porky” Medina.
Assuming this fight gets finalized, this would be the first title defense for Uzcategui. This will also be the first title opportunity for Plant.
Both fighters posses solid skills and have the ability to become world class fighters. If both sides are able to come to terms, this could be an excellent fight between two young combatants.
