Canelo vs. Plant
Super middleweight supremacy will be on the line when Canelo Alvarez fights Caleb Plant on Nov. 6.
Alvarez, the WBC, WBO, and WBA champion, announced on Twitter that the fight had been finalized:

The Alvarez-Plant showdown will take place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, according to a report from The Ring. It marks Alvarez's first fight in Las Vegas since Nov. 2019. Undercard bouts have yet to be announced.
In Plant, the IBF super middleweight champion, Alvarez certainly has a worthy opponent. Plant is 21-0 with 12 knockouts; he most recently beat Caleb Truax in January via unanimous decision and enters the showdown with Alvarez extremely confident.
“I mean, I’m willing and ready to take it wherever it has to go to get my hand raised. But don’t be surprised if it’s easier than y’all think," Plant said.
Alvarez, a Mexican sports legend, has a record of 51 wins, one loss and two draws. His only defeat came at the hands of Floyd Mayweather, who recently fought Logan Paul in an exhibition in Miami. He most recently beat Billy Joe Saunders at AT&T Stadium in May.
