Caleb Plant and David Benavidez to clash in epic showdown

This weekend, we have a huge boxing event with David Benavidez and Caleb Plant set to scrap in a super middleweight bout. The pending fight marks a huge step up in competition for Benavidez and another shot at Canelo Alvarez for Plant. With big implications on the line and Benavidez and Plant being ranked number one and two by Ring Magazine, all eyes will be on Plant-Benavidez this weekend!

Caleb Plant: The Sweet Science

The opportunity to take David Benavidez’ “0” this weekend will be huge for Caleb Plant. Canelo Alvarez has said he’s tired of having fighters wait around and call him out. While Plant has walked the walk and captured a title of his own, he’s wasted no time getting back in the ring after losing his belt to Canelo.

Caleb Plant captured his title in 2019 when he defeated Jose Uzcategui for the IBF World Super Middleweight title. He then defended three times against Mike Lee, Vincent Figenbutz, and Caleb Traux. His shot at Canelo was for the undisputed title and he came up short, getting finished in round 11.

After Canelo, Plant fought Anthony Dirrell in a bad blood match. There he notched a career-highlight when he knocked out Dirrell with a hook to the body and then a hook up top in typical, Joe Frazier fashion.

Benavidez is a tough fight for anyone. With incredible power, Plant will want to use the sweet science of boxing to neutralize the power of Benavidez using his smooth hands and crafty footwork.

New Blood: David Benavidez

David Benavidez is the number one fighter at 168 according to Ring Magazine. At 26-0, Benavidez has 23 knockouts and each and every one is spectacular. He, too, fought Dirrell, and finished him in the 9th after handing out Dirrell a beating that caused his corner to throw in the towel.

Benavidez has been deep in fights and still managed to get the finish. Against Roamer Alexis Angulo, he finished his opponent in the 10th and wasn’t given the vacant belt due to missing weight. In 2021, he beat Ronald Ellis in the 11th round and Kyrone Davis in the 7th.

His last fight was in May of 2022 when he knocked out an over the hill David Lemieux in round 3. Lemieux had previously fought GGG for the undisputed title at 160. In his win over Lemieux, Benavidez won the WBC Interim World Super Middleweight title.

So don’t miss out as Showtime is putting on a great night of fights. In addition to Caleb Plant and David Benavidez’ epic showdown, we get to see Cody Crowley, Jesus Alejandro Ramos, and more on the card! Don’t miss out!
