Mayweather Promotions CEO Leonard Ellerby is confident that current boxing superstar Saul Alvarez will not be able to defeat IBF middleweight title holder Caleb Plant, who is on the Mexican’s path to the undisputed title.
“He can’t beat Caleb because Caleb has all the tools he needs to win, trust me,” Ellerby said. “What you saw from Caleb Plant so far was just a quick glance.
Everyone is able to jump over their heads depending on the opponent they are fighting with. But when a fighter gets the opportunity to enter the big stage against a big name, then everything is decided by the styles.
In him [Планта] there is everything you need to beat Canelo, absolutely everything. People say he has no punch, but he can punch. He is a phenomenal boxer with amazing defensive skills and most importantly, he thinks in the ring. Many people always underestimate this kind of thing, but I think that this is one of his key advantages in the fight with Canelo. “
We will remind, earlier Ellerby told why he does not consider Alvarez the first number of the pound-for-pound rating.
