Canelo Alvarez vs Caleb Plant fight start time: live stream, PPV prices, how to watch, Showtime Boxing
The best pound-for-pound boxer on the planet returns to the ring on Saturday night, with Saul “Canelo” Alvarez looking to add another achievement to his already incredible resume. Alvarez will face Caleb Plant in a four-belt super middleweight unification fight. The action takes place from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas and is broadcast live on Showtime pay-per-view.
Alvarez has torn the 168-pound division apart – all in the past 12 months. The Mexican superstar has had three massive wins since December 2020 against Callum Smith by decision, Avni Yilidirim by easy save in February and Billy Joe Saunders in May. If successful on Saturday, Alvarez discussed reverting back to 175 pounds to challenge the champions there as well. Plant, meanwhile, has only fought once in the past 12 months when he won a decisive victory over Caleb Truax in January.

There is also more intrigue on the undercard on Saturday night. Elvis Rodriguez, a 25-year-old prospect from the Dominican Republic, secures a spotlight spot as he looks to bounce back from the first loss of his career. Prior to the loss to Kenneth Sims Jr. in May, Rodriguez had a solid 11-0 record with 10 knockouts. Now he gets a tough client in Romero, from Mexico, who has an unbeaten 14-0 record with nine knockouts. Additionally, former super middleweight champion Anthony Dirrell kicks off the PPV when he faces off against Marcos Hernandez.
