Alvarez, a Mexican boxer, holds WBC, WBA and WBO belts and, if he wins in November, he’ll be adding the IBF strap. Aside from his championships, the boxer has gone viral on social media thanks to his unremarkable defensive strategies.
He was supposed to return to Las Vegas in September, but talks dragged.
Plant, meanwhile, is coming ff a points decision in January against Caleb Truax, who previously outpointed James DeGale for the IBF title.
