The head of the Matchroom Boxing promotion company Eddie Hearn said when negotiations will begin on organizing a unification bout in the middle weight between WBO, WBA and WBC world champion Saul Alvarez of Mexico and IBF title holder American Caleb Plant.
“It’s an expensive fight, but the absolute championship is at stake. Caleb has to make a lot of money in this fight. This week we are starting negotiations and will be in contact with the Plant team. I must provide the best conditions for Saul Alvarez, and Plant representatives must do everything so that their ward is also satisfied. I think for both fighters, this is the only fight that makes sense, ”said Hearn.
Recall that Saul Alvarez fought his last fight on May 8 and defeated Briton Billy Joe Saunders ahead of schedule. As for Plant, he faced Caleb Troyes on January 30th and won by unanimous decision.
