    Alveroid keeps fighting soft British boxers. Let's see how he does against Beneveatez or Bivol. Even Charlo would be a decent fight

    The Ashland City, Tennessee native—who now fights out of Las Vegas—has made three successful title defenses, including a 12-round shutout over former titlist Caleb Plant this past January in Los Angeles.
    Jake, you did it again.

    How can people not see that Plant is better than Saunders and or Smith is beyond me! Now, I'm not saying Caleb will win, but...I definitely think he has a better chance.

This means you insist on getting fair pay (remember that Billy Ho only took $2 million to Canelo's $25 million), you pick the venue, you pick the ring size, you pick the gloves, you pick the promoter, make Canelo come on fox PPV. No revenue sharing with DAZN.

    Caleb needs to realize that he has Canelo's golden ticket so he has the negotiation power now.; Too many of these fighters give into Canelo's ridiculous demands just for a payday.
    and when the fight bombs on PPV Plant takes home 50$ dollars. the fight has to be on DAZN they are the only ones willing to overpay.

    Would you bet on Charlo to beat Benavidez?

    Would you bet on Andrade to beat BJS?

    Would you bet on Murata to beat Plant?

    Would you bet on GGG to beat Canelo?

    I'm just asking honestly

    Not to say that Melikuziev, Berlanga and Morrell are coming up quickly and Bivol might move down for that big payday.

    concerned with how brittle his hands are and his tendency to gas out in the late rounds
    May I ask how you think he has that "style" and "skills" to outbox Canelo?

    Very similar odds to the Smith and Saunders fights, I honestly don't see how Plant beats Canelo, I even think Smith had that punchers chance but I don't see that with Plant.

    I rate BJS as a much better boxer than Plant in all areas except the power one, Alvarez had his problems with BJS who I think outboxed him in some rounds but I defintiely saw progress in cutting off the ring, Alvarez has became a great fighter at cutting off the ring, BJS was a slick southpaw with much better feet than Plant.

    Caleb is a fighter who is more grounded to the canvas, less mobile, less slick upperbody than BJS and good power, not enought to bother Canelo's defense or chin.

    Will make my official breakdown when the fight gets announced but I do think Canelo stops Plant without much problem.

    No doubt, notice how BJS while it lasted put up a MUCH more competitive fight than Callum Smith, who was supposed to be the king of 168? BJS isn't even one of the best at 160, I had him ranked 5th after Canelo, GGG, Andrade and Charlo.
