Despite Quick Turnaround
Caleb Plant is brimming with confidence as he prepares for his highly anticipated clash against David Benavidez on March 25th.
The pair will headline a Showtime pay-per-view event at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas for the Interim WBC World Super Middleweight Title
During a media workout held at his training camp near the Las Vegas strip on Tuesday, the 30-year-old former champion showcased his skills and conditioning ahead of the bout.
Plant’s last fight was in October, when he delivered a spectacular knockout victory over former champion Anthony Dirrell.

“Going into the Dirrell fight, that being a WBC title eliminator, I knew that would put me in line to fight for the interim belt and I knew winning the interim belt would put me in line to fight the WBC. Again, that is just a plan that my team had set in place, and we went with the plan,” Plant explained.
“Bread is somebody that I have talked to for quite a long time. There are a handful of people whose boxing opinion I really respect and trust. He has been one of them,” Plant told BoxingScene.com.
“Just bringing him in, he has great chemistry with my dad and great chemistry altogether with the team. We put in a lot of hard work last camp and then obviously took just a short break and we are getting back to it and building off of last camp. I am in a great spot and the best shape of my life and ready for March 25th.”
After suffering his first professional loss to Canelo Alvarez in November 2021, Plant remained out of the ring for 11 months. However, despite always staying in shape, Plant feels that his second training camp with coach Justin Edwards, coupled with his swift return to action, will result in another exceptional performance against David Benavidez.
Plant is confident that his extended training and dedication will pay off as he looks forward to facing Benavidez. He believes that the combination of his preparation and the quick turnaround will help him maintain his sharpness and deliver another world-class display in the ring.
“I would be training anyway so regardless, I would be training and working but it is true that it is nice to have a quick turnaround and get back in the ring and get back in front of people,” explained Plant.
