Canelo Alvarez v. Caleb Plant Live Results And Highlights

A fight with plenty of tension will look to answer a simple question: who is the king of the super-middleweights? Will Canelo Alvarez continue his legendary run or will Caleb Plant produce what some would call a true upset within the sport of boxing?

Inside the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Canelo will put his WBA, WBC, WBO, and The Ring Super-Middleweight Titles on the line against Plant, who will be defending the IBF Super-Middleweight Championship.

Making his debut in 2005, Canelo is considered one of the best boxers competing today. A WBC and WBA Light-Middleweight Champion, Canelo beat a who’s who of fighters in the early 2010s: Shane Mosley, Josesito Lopez, and Austin Lopez to name a few. A young Canelo would then face Floyd Mayweather in 2013 and would lose via majority decision. Since then, Canelo has gone 14-0-1 and has collected gold in the middleweight, light-heavyweight, and super-middleweight divisions. Notable fighters he has beaten during this run include Miguel Cotto, Amir Khan, Liam Smith, Gennadiy Golovkin, Sergey Kovalev, Callum Smith, and Billy Joe Saunders,

After taking over the middleweight division, Canelo beat Kovalev for light-heavyweight gold. He would then go on a three-fight run that included dominant wins over Callum Smith, Avni Yildirim, and Saunders. Canelo beat Smith for the WBA and WBC Super-Middleweight Titles, and in his last fight against Saunders won via retirement for the WBO Super-Middleweight Title.

Plant made his debut in 2014. The 29-year-old beat Jose Uzcategui in 2019 for the IBF Super-Middleweight Title. He has defended the belt three times, his last bout a unanimous decision win over Caleb Truax in January. Requesting a fight against some of the top fighters in the sport, Plant has been waiting to face Canelo for a while.

The first time the two interacted with one another resulted in a brawl. Both argued and Canelo ended up landing several shots, one of which gave Plant a cut right below his eye. It is unknown how the injury, healed or not, will play a factor in the fight.
