    Why won't he fight anyone good? He might have the 3 weakest title defenses back to back in super middleweight history.

    So, another thread about how Canelo makes diva demands and then the other guy is blamed? Gotcha.

    Two things can be true at once; Canelo can make a host of diva demands AND Caleb Plant can have a weak-ass resume, even in a crappy division like the Super-middleweights. However in this case it is looking like it was Al Haymon's fault.

    Plant sucks. He's good but not champion material. I'm not surprised he won't fight anybody.

    He's a profoundly unlikable fake and raging douche nozzle.

    I wouldn’t say Shefat Isufu, Marcelo Coceres and Martin Murray were any better than Uzcategui, Caleb Truax, Mike Lee and Feigenbutz. Even Njilkam and John Ryder.

    Let’s just call it what it is Callum Smith, Billy Joe and Caleb Plant all played it safe once they knew what Canelo’s intentions were. The only two guys that were ranked at 168 in the RING TOP 10 at the time of the fights were Uzcategui and Caleb Truax. Same thing the MWs are doing by playing it safe and calling out Canelo.

    I don't get all the Caleb Plant hate tbh. Yeah he's had some easy fights and is yet to make a huge step up but it's like that with most hype fighters. He's done well against who he's fought, there's no excusing that. The Charlo's were quite similar, imo.

    Ridiculous.

    This is like the 4th or 5th opponent that has complained about Clenelo. Clenelo's next opponent is getting a 3 week training camp.

    Pacquiao announced the Spence and Thurman fights 3 months out.

    :lol:

    This right here. I really, really dislike Plant. It's crazy, because stylistically I should like him. He really grinds my gears and I wanna see him lose sooner rather than later.

    Right you mean the Pacquiao that had Cotto drop down to 145 and wouldn’t fight Shane Mosley before the Floyd fight unless he dropped down to 144? Held up the biggest fight in Boxing history because he didn’t want to do blood testing.
