    This guy is so delusional and entitled and it baffles me how someone so trash can try to act so flamboyant because that’s all this is just an act, I can’t wait till canelo whips some humble pie into this fraud!

      I like Caleb Plant. He’s a cool dude like me. He’s got some skills too. He ain’t beating Canelo but it will be a fun fight

He is not a Jr middle who moved up to super middle. And contrary to what the casuals think, he does hit hard enough to keep anyone off him. This is an intersting matchup as Canelo is a counter puncher who likes for his opponents to come after him aggressively. He does not like to face pure boxers. The jab will be the key for the much larger and stronger plant
        Intersting matchup and I agree with the jab comment. Size does matter, the kid who just fought Floyd had enough weight behind his jab to keep Floyd from unleashing combos early in the fight (yes, part of that may have been Floyd trying to get him to gas out).

        Also, Goossen has been around long enough to know what to look for (very very important)... Can Caleb execute, time Canelo, can he survive Canelo's offence. Canelo added some interesting footwork in his last fight but, he still needs to consistently get inside Plant's reach without suddenly getting unplugged with a blind, lucky or well timed shot like Manny vs Marquez.

            Nice. Good read. Another intersting variable is how does Canelo deal with the footwork of plant and can Canelo muscle a much bigger potentially stronger man.

              Plant is what I would call an orthodox slick fighter, BJS is an ankward slick fighter, I do think Canelo will have definitely a much easier time trying to time Plant than he had trying to time BJS.

              Plant only got two things: a good jab, a good left hook.

              His left hook is gonna be innefective when Canelo starts pummeling that arm like he did with Callum's and when Plant realizes either two things, his left hook will land but make no damage or his left hook will be innefective because it won't land.

              I love Plant's jab, very accurate, long and consistent however I don't think it has enough pop to make Canelo's hesitant, Alvarez will probably walk forward blocking and parrying that jab and trying to time it so the moment Plant doubles it up or triples it Canelo will counter with either a left hook to body/head or right hook to the body, he can even get creative in there to try to counter with a stiff quick jab.

              Now, Plant is open to the overhand right as we've seen in the Truax fight, if Plant gets caught with that shot which I got no doubt he will, he will start walking back without knowing what to do.

              Guys, Mayweather was an elite fighter, he outboxed the **** out of you and he demanded respect but he did not inspire fear, Canelo is bringing fear on this guys because they know a counter can hurt them, GGG admited that he couldn't expose himself against Canelo because he knew what was coming back, Jacobs felt it, Kovalev felt it, Smith felt it, BJS felt it.

              There is always a chance Plant's beats Canelo, this is boxing, żDo I see it? Absolutely not, I can't be sure if it will be a stoppage thou, but one thing I'm 99% confident is that Canelo is gonna beat him without a doubt.
              Couldn't have broken it down and said it better myself so I won't. Agree 100%.
