Caleb Plant hints at imminent Canelo rematch

Former IBF super middleweight champion Caleb 'Sweethands' Plant has dropped strong hints that talks are progressing for a much-anticipated rematch with Canelo Alvarez. Plant's rising star power in the boxing world makes him a compelling choice for Canelo's next bout, which is speculated to take place in either May or September of the upcoming year.

The November showdown between Plant and Canelo was an adrenaline-pumping spectacle that ended with Canelo knocking out Plant in the eleventh round. This win allowed Canelo to clinch the undisputed title. The clash between the two brought immense attention and produced significant pay-per-view sales, marking it as Canelo's most lucrative fight since his iconic duels with Gennadiy Golovkin.

Given the commercial and sporting success of their initial contest, a rematch would likely be a blockbuster event. Plant, fully aware of this, believes it would be a strategic move on his part to get back in the ring soon, preferably against an opponent ranked in the top 15. This would not only allow him a chance to bounce back from his recent losses but would also serve as a statement win that could solidify his position for a more lucrative rematch against Canelo.

At present, Plant holds an impressive record of 22 wins and 2 losses, including 13 knockouts. He is currently ranked fourth by the World Boxing Council. Plant's most recent match was a closely-fought encounter against David Benavidez this past March. Though he ultimately lost by a unanimous decision, the contest was tight.

In a recent interview with I AM ATHLETE, Plant revealed his desire to face off against Jermall Charlo, saying, "That's what I'd like. I've let my management know what I want, and that's what I want. I'm saying it here live." This matchup could serve as a compelling prelude to a rematch with Canelo, keeping fans engaged.

Plant also took a moment to discuss how Canelo's fighting technique has evolved over time. Without getting into specific details, he said,

Canelo's style has changed over the years, but I don't want to get into that. I'm pretty close to having a rematch. It's never good to correct your enemies. I'm going to let him do his thing, and I'm sure we'll meet up soon.
