IBF 168 pound champion Caleb Plant is going into the fight of his life against the biggest fighter in the planet Canelo Alvarez and despite the differences in status, nobody is in a position to tell him what he can or cannot do at this stage of his career.

Plant will definitely be entering the fight against Alvarez (56-1-2,38KOs) as an underdog, a status that won’t be changing no matter what Plant does ahead of their Undisputed super middleweight title fight. The fight will be aired on Nov. 6th on Showtime Pay-Per-View from the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas.

“I know that people don’t believe me when I tell them I’m winning on November 6,” Plant insisted during a media conference to promote the event. “All those people who tell me that I can’t do something, you live believable lives and you do believable things.

“I promised myself that I was going to run this all the way to the top, with no problem crashing and burning along the way. I set out to live an unbelievable life and accomplish unbelievable things. Those people who doubt me are the very reason that I’m here.”

Plant (21-0, 12KOs) will try defending his IBF super middleweight title for the fourth time against Alvarez since winning the title from Jose Uzcategui. Alvarez holds the WBC, WBO and WBA Super Middleweight titles and Plant will be looking to be the first 168 pound undisputed champion.

Plant has had victories over Mike Lee, Vincent Feigenbutz and former IBF titlist Caleb Truax but those were competitive and he was expected to dominate and overwhelm those fighters to stand a chance against a global star like Canelo Alvarez.

Alvarez has been very dominant in almost every division he has competed and has lost just ones throughout his pro career with 59 fights under his belt. Since losing to Floyd Mayweather in 2013, Canelo Alvarez has gone on to win titles in four divisions and will look to set a record as the first champion to unify a division in the space of one year.

Canelo Alvarez has done his bit and deserves all the credit for his accomplishments but Plant also want people to see that he also has a chance to upset the highly favoured Mexican to become the new undisputed champion in the 168 pound division.

“Miguel Cotto’s brother can make you do the chicken dance but I can’t?” Plant questioned, pointing to Jose Miguel Cotto rocking Alvarez in the opening round of their May 2010 clash, which Alvarez won by ninth-round knockout. “Okay. Mark my words, on November 6 you will hear the words, ‘And the new undisputed super middleweight champion.’ You will also hear the words, ‘and still undefeated.’”

Canelo and Plant got involved in a brawl in their Press Conference earlier this month and with the Mexican opening up a cut on Plant’s cheek. The bad blood has been grown since then and both Alvarez and Plant will look to settle their scores on November 6th.

Other professionals and stablemate Keith Thurman have this believe that Plant will find it difficult taking Canelo Alvarez’s power and should try his best to avoid getting caught, a notion that is also not accepted by the IBF titlist. In-fact Plant actually fancies his chances against Canelo and doesn’t see the result going otherwise.

[…] Plant has been able to ignite Se bad blood in Alvarez, who now takes the fight personal. Their differences was evident in their press conference and the build up definitely promises action mutually guaranteed by them both as the fight heads to fight night. […]
