Canelo is champion for the WBA, WBO Y CMB super middleweight, while Plant is for the FIB, so now both boxers can become the absolute monarch of the category.

After that confrontation, Canelo With Eddie hearn began to negotiate with the team of Caleb which is promoted by Al haymon Y Premier Boxing Champion.
Although there is interest on the part of Plant and that surely there is no greater chance of a bag as big as against the Mexican, Haymon has sought to sign a long-term contract with Alvarez.
This would be the eighth time that Saul fight in the MGM Grand Garden of Las Vegas, after the last time was in November 2019 when he knocked out Sergey Kovalev, in the only fight of Canelo at 175 lbs.
Caleb Plant comes from beating Caleb Truax in January of this year by a forceful unanimous decision by triple card of 120-112.
