Caleb Plant He looked quick with the left jab during his preparation for the four belt unification fight against Saúl “Canelo” Álvarez.
In a video posted by Fight Hub TV the American champion is seen working with his coach with the mitts with short combinations of two or even three strokes.
During the two minutes that the video lasted, he is rarely seen Plant go forward. Most of the work he did was walking the ring or going backwards.

It will be on November 6 when the American unifies all the belts of the super middle division against the Jalisco boxer.
