Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez Vs Caleb Plant: Our Pick

When it comes to betting on this fight, we believe that it will be a closer bout than what the odds are suggesting. The odds would have you believe that Plant stands no chance, but he is a very good boxer with a power jab, especially when he is given some room to work. With his jab, he aims to draw an attack from his rival, following it up with a quick counter that puts his opponent on the seat of his pants. He also has very good defensive skills, which is obviously a huge plus.

If Canelo stays alert and does not give Plant the space that he likes to work in, he should have the advantage. There are not many fighters in the boxing world that can stand in the pocket and dodge most punches while he attacks his opponent's body and searches for the knockout blow.

Prediction: Canelo to win by knockout.

Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez Vs Caleb Plant: Best Bet

One thing that a fighter needs to have in order to live with Canelo and Plant has plenty of stamina. In fact, he has only gassed out once in his career and even that was in the tenth round. Many are predicting that this fight will be over quickly, but we do not think that this will be the case due to Plant's stamina.

Best bet: Over 8.5 rounds in the fight.
