Uzcategui Hopes For Rematch Against Plant
It would be short reign for Jose Uzcategui as IBF super middleweight champion, as Caleb Plant would control their 12-round showdown on Sunday night.
With the judges scoring it 116-110 twice and 115-111, coupled with two knockdowns by Plant, it was a rough night for the former champion.
“I did feel that I had the advantage heading into the fight,” said Uzcategui after the fight. “I went down because I was off balance, but I wasn’t hurt. He started to get tired around the sixth round, which was the plan. Caleb knew how to clench and hold. He was smart. He knew how to stay away from the punches.
“I expected more movement and more boxing out of him,” continued Uzcategui.
“I would love the rematch. I think everyone saw a great fight tonight. I gave him the chance at the title and I would hope he would give me the chance to win it back.”
