Canelo Alvarez vs. Caleb Plant officially announced at Showtime PPV – Boxing Sports

Canelo Alvarez vs. Caleb Plant will be officially launched on November 6th in showtime pay-per-view, with Premier Boxing Champions leading the promotion.

Both men are chasing historic and undisputed world titles in the most anticipated battle of the year.”

Alvarez (56-1-2, 38 KO) defends WBC, WBA, and WBO super middleweight titles against plants (21-0, 12 KO) who have IBF titles. This means that this will be a true indisputable title battle at £ 168.

“After all, this is what I want to do in my career and make history,” Canelo said. “These things make history, such as being the first to become a unified champion at 168 pounds. It could be one of the few who holds this prestigious honor in any weight class. That makes me very happy. This will be a big achievement for my country. I want to be remembered as one of the best athletes in sports history. “

“The world will witness the first undisputed super middleweight champion in boxing history,” Plant said. “If you raise my hand with a win, the world will know that I’m the new face of boxing. Everyone needs to order pay-per-view now and prepare popcorn. From now on, the best ever I’m trying to show off a historic performance as one of the performances. This guy is in trouble. “

Canelo-Plant handles most of the larger PBC pay-per-view events in recent years, so most people expected it to land in FOX pay-per-view, but there’s also talk about the relationship between PBC and FOX. .. It may be nearing the end. FOX has the option to update with PBC later this year, and it is not yet known how the network will proceed with that decision.
