IBF super-middleweight champion Caleb Plant is just days away from his third title defense. This Saturday night the American is set to face Caleb Truax in Los Angeles, with his belt being put on the line.
Plant, 28, is recognized as one of the top names in the super-middleweight division. A place, where Saul Alvarez has been spending time lately. Still, “Hunter” wasn’t able to secure a fight with the Mexican superstar, but according to him, he’s not chasing anybody.
“I’ll be here for a long time,” he told Boxing Scene.
“I’m not chasing nobody. I’m the champion. I’m the world champion. I’m the big dog at 168 pounds.
“So I’m not going to see anybody, they’ve got to come see me.”
Plant’s last fight was in February 2020 when he TKO’d Vincent Feigenbutz. Now if he manages to get another big-time victory, his chances of facing Canelo or Billy Joe Saunders will get even bigger.
“I can honestly say this is one of my best camps,” Plant added.
“I’ve had great sparring. I haven’t had any restrictions as far as COVID-19 goes when it comes to sparring partners or strength and conditioning or being in the gym. So I’ve been really focused on what I need to do and I’m just ready to go in there and handle business.”
