Canelo Alvarez and Caleb Plant will be trading punches again, only this time it won’t be at a press conference.

The boxers finally face off in the ring Saturday at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas with plenty at stake: a four-belt super middleweight unification.

Alvarez, 31, has thrived at the 168-pound division with victories over Callum Smith, Avni Yildirim and Billy Joe Saunders earning him the WBA, WBO and WBC championship belts. Plant, 29, owns the IBF title – and, as a result, a chance to derail Alvarez’s unification plans.

Plant, who initiated the scuffle with Alvarez at a press conference in Beverly Hills on Sept. 21, is 21-0 with only 12 knockouts. But he has shown power, particularly in winning the IBF super middleweight title in 2019 from Jose Uzcategui. In that fight, Plant scored two knockdowns and survived a late rally by Uzcategui in his unanimous decision victory.

Alvarez, (56-1-2, 38 KOs) has expressed respect for Plant’s boxing skills, but not Plant’s power. He suggests it’ll only be a matter of time before he dispatches Plant with his own, unquestioned knockout power. Alvarez has won seven straight fights, dating back to his draw against Gennady Golovkin in 2017.
