Undefeated super middleweight contender Caleb “Sweethands” Plant has been busy training inside of City Boxing Club in Las Vegas ahead of his schedule January 13th showdown vs. IBF champion Jose Uzcategui, who he faces inside of the Microsoft Theatre at L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California.

Plant vs. Uzcategui is a classic matchup of a boxer vs. a puncher. Plant (17-0, 10 KO’s) is originally from Nashville, Tennessee and now calls Vegas his home. Working out with trainer Justin Gamber, he shed light into this training camp. The fight takes place in Las Vegas –  Vegas is the casino capital of U.S.A, but other city’s such as New Jersey offer it’s residents a big night of gambling, learn more here.

“This training camp has been great,” said Plant. “We took everything to the next level as I do every camp. We stepped up everything for this camp, the sparring partners, the strength and conditioning, all of the training is on another level. I’ll be at my best come fight night and I can’t wait.”

Plant has never shied away from calling out the champions in the division, including Uzcategui.

“Everyone says Jose Uzcategui is the boogeyman, but after January 13th, I don’t want no excuses,” Plant said. “He is a top fighter in the division, but I will take that spot after I take his title from him. All I can tell him is be ready.”

Plant has overcame a lot of obstacles in his life, including losing his daughter at a young age. He knows that this fight has been a long time coming.

“This has been a lifelong dream of mine to be fighting for a world title and now that time has finally come,” said Plant. “I’ll be fighting for my daughter Alia, may she rest in peace. The trials and tribulations I’ve gone through to get to this point have been overwhelming at times, but they’ve only made me stronger. I’ve worked hard for this defining moment in my boxing career and I’m going to rise to the occasion, and everyone will hear the words…And The New!”

Plant is affiliated with Premier Boxing Champions, as it was recently revealed that the company has output deals with both SHOWTIME and FOX. Plant’s fight vs. Uzcategui will be featured on on FS1 and Fox Deportes, and he appreciates the crossover covering that is coming from FOX as playoff season approaches in the NFL.

“It’s going to be a big weekend for sports with the NFC playoffs going down on FOX, but the night is going to be capped off with a great world championship fight,” said Plant. “You have two warriors who will be putting everything on the line for super middleweight supremacy. Fans of all sports who will be watching are going to see a man in myself who is hungry and dangerous. I will be crowned champion!”

The super middleweight division is one of the hottest in boxing, as further evidenced by last weekend’s display from Canelo Alvarez, who stopped Rocky Fielding in three rounds to claim a version of the WBA super middleweight title. And for Plant, that means this fight is not only for a title, but could help towards defining his legacy in the sport.
