Uzcategui: After I KO Thompson - I Want Caleb Plant Rematch

Former IBF super middleweight world champion Jose Uzcategui will open up Showtime's tripleheader on Staurday night.

Uzcategui will collide with Mayweather Promotions' boxer Lionell Thompson at the State Farm Arena in Atlanta as part of a Premier Boxing Champions event.

The card is headline by former two-time champion Gervonta “Tank” Davis, and former unified champion Yuriorkis Gamboa, who battle for the vacant WBA lightweight title. And also on the card, WBA "regular" light heavyweight champion Jean Pascal will make a defense against two-division champion Badou Jack.

Uzcategui lost his IBF title to current champion Caleb Plant in January. Uzcategui went down twice in the fight and lost a twelve round unanimous decision.

He wants to get his hands on Plant in the rematch. Plant will make a homecoming defense in February, against German top contender Vincent Feigenbutz.

“I’m grateful to be back in this position and I promise the crowd won’t be disappointed. I’m going to be around for a long time and I’m going to get my world title back," Uzcategui said.
“I don’t talk much, but since he says I only have power, we’ll see on Saturday. Don’t talk today and then run around the ring.
“After I knock out Lionell Thompson, we’ll see what Caleb Plant has to say after that. I hope he will stand and fight. The only reason Plant is champion is because I messed up.
“When I’m at my best, I’m the best super middleweight on the planet. Everyone will see on Saturday.”

[QUOTE=budfr;20285876]Uzcategui felt sorry for Plant. In a rematch, Uzca would win. Plant is also afraid of Benavidez....[/QUOTE] Felt sorry for exactly what? Lol. Uzcategui vs Benavidez would be a lot of fun.

Uzcategui felt sorry for Plant. In a rematch, Uzca would win. Plant is also afraid of Benavidez....

The sweetest 3 fight parlay I could think of is watching Uzcategui, Pascal and Gamboa bring it all in on a maywether promotion card. Not all that farfetched..

[QUOTE=M Bison;20283033]Why is Plant not being lined up for one of the many high ranking Brits in the division?[/QUOTE] Plant is fighting the highest ranked contender for his IBF belt. I don't see too many Brits in those rankings.

Why is Plant not being lined up for one of the many high ranking Brits in the division?
