How to watch Canelo Álvarez vs Caleb Plant boxing live in Australia
Canelo Álvarez's quest to unify the world's 4 super-middleweight belts could be realised when he fights Caleb Plant in Las Vegas.
Ring master Saúl "Canelo" Álvarez will use all of his noted nous gained across 56 pro fights when he meets nemesis Caleb Plant in Las Vegas. The pair will fight to decide just who is the undisputed super-middleweight king of boxing.
Already considered one of his sport's very best, Alvarez has not lost a fight in 8 years and needs only to defeat his mouthy American opponent to secure all 4 of boxing's super-middleweight belts.
Plant has earned the "mouthy" title through his constant taunts of his Mexican opponent and Álvarez's mother, who Plant has insulted in both press conferences leading up to the fight. That earned him a punch in the face for his trouble at the first press event, cutting him in the process.

Who will win Canelo vs Plant?
It's almost impossible to not tip the Mexican master Álvarez. He has not lost since a points defeat to all-time great Floyd Mayweather in 2013, putting together masterful performance after masterful performance since then.
He has plenty of fuel to fire him to victory this time, too. Álvarez is used to being shown respect by his opponents and Plant's taunts have left him obviously displeased and with a point to prove.
Plant is unbeaten in 22 fights and, of course, a world champion in his own right. But can he match Álvarez's guile and avoid the champion's punching power? It's hard to see, to be honest.
Álvarez dominates his fights, landing blow after blow after blow, basically knocking the spirit out of the opponent. He'll try to do the same against Plant but may not get the fight on his terms as easily as he usually does. Still, we think he'll be too good. Álvarez for us.
