    Is Plant pretty much the fastest fighter in boxing?

    His speed is unbelievable compared to the other guys in his weight class. The way he throws combos for a SMW is something you just dont see.

    Incredible speed.

    Obviously p4p lol

    But yea Russell still may be faster p4p. But he throws mostly arm alligator shots. Plant throws full arsenal combos.

    To me he doesn't even have enough speed to fight the way he fights. He tries very hard to look flashy and slick and it doesn't look instinctive at all.

    He's very quick handed and will give anyone a hard time. I'd like to see him under real pressure from a fighter to see how good he really is though.

    Benavidez is fast



    Benavidez would've smoked Feigenbutzhoffer in 3 rounds max.

    When Plant signs his name on the dotted line it will be an act of summoning the devil and you can take that to the bank

    The more of Plant I watch inside the ring the more I like.

    I know I'll get **** for this but his display against Lee reminded me a bit of Mayweather actually.

    I think out of this newest era of champions hes becoming my favorite and Im hoping he can slowly take over the division.

    168 seems to me at least to be heating up, with a nice variety of solid fighters and I look forward to seeing how the dust settles.

    plant is the best 168 but mike Lee isnt exactly championship caliber. That dude is a flat out no talent clown who literally fought all blown up fighters or bums and was thrown to the wolves. Dude had financial backing but zero skill or talent.

    plant will smoke benevidez. plant is a serious and disciplined fighter. Benevidez is a partier.
