Former featherweight champion (up to 57.2 kg), American Shakur Stevenson highly appreciated the chances of the IBF middleweight title holder (up to 76.2 kg), compatriot Caleb Plant (20-0-0, 12 KO) in a fight against the leader of the rating «pound -for-pound “, Mexican Saul Alvarez (53-1-2, 36 KO).
Recall that the teams of fighters tried to arrange a meeting in December, but did not succeed.
“Caleb Plant is a damn good boxer. People just don’t understand how good he is, ” Stevenson summed up. – Canelo is one of my favorite fighters, but this is a 50/50 match.
Caleb has a lot of good things in his arsenal that don’t get noticed. And we don’t know if Canelo can handle it, just like we can’t say that Plant can handle him. It’s a good fight anyway. “
