A significant fight at super middleweight goes down on Saturday night?
One of the best super middleweights in the world looks to put himself in position for a possible 2021 clash with Canelo Alvarez when Caleb Plant looks to defend his IBF title for the third time against former 168-pound titlist Caleb Truax on Saturday from the Shrine Exposition Center in Los Angeles, Calif.
After winning the IBF belt from José Uzcátegui in January 2019, also in Los Angeles, Plant scored back-to-back stoppages over Mike Lee and Vincent Feigenbutz, respectively. There had been talks of Plant facing Alvarez last year before the coronavirus pandemic halted the idea. Now a win over Truax could see him land boxing’s “golden ticket”.
Standing in Plant’s way is the former IBF super middleweight titleholder. Truax captured the strap from James DeGale in December 2017. In his next time out, Truax lost the title in a rematch with DeGale in April 2018. Since then, Truax hasn’t been too active due to injuries, going 2-0, one no-contest. Truax last fought in January 2020, beating David Basajjamivule by majority decision.
If Plant looks impressive, a crack at Alvarez is inevitable. Can he focus on the task at hand? Or will Truax crash the party?
