Since December last year, Canelo has been on a quest to unify all four 168lb titles. Starting off with a win against Callum Smith for the WBA and WBC titles, the Mexican then beat Billy Joe Saunders last May for the WBO strap. Now just the IBF title remains and it is currently around the waist of Caleb Plant.
While past Canelo opponents have often been respectful in his presence, Plant has torn up the script and traded blows with the 31-year-old at the first press conference between the two in September. There is a genuine anomosity between Canelo and Plant, and this should make for a thrilling contest under the bright Vegas lights.
