Caleb Plant vs. Caleb Truax

12 rounds, for Plants IBF super middleweight title

Caleb Plant 20-0 with 12 knockouts has looked incredible in his last few fights and he has steadily been improving. When he fought Jose Uzcategui he went in as the underdog and put in the performance of his career. There are a few things about Plant that really stands out. First he has blazing hand speed and he gets his shots of very quickly. Second thing is that he looks incredibly accurate with his punches. That could have to do with some of the lower level guys that he has faced or he is just that good. The last thing that really stands out is that he looks more powerful than his record suggests. The power of course can look even greater due to his accuracy since he is able to land the shots where they hurt the most cleanly. The opponent he has on his hands is a real veteran, a true warrior in Caleb Truax (31-4-2). When people have counted out Truax before he has proven them wrong but he is getting up there in age at 37 years old. Caleb Plant seems like a very difficult guy to face if you are an aging Caleb Truax. Most likely Truax in his best days wouldn´t be enough to handle Plant´s talent. This older version of Traux might be badly outclassed.

Plant will land clean hard shots almost immediately in the fight as he won´t have any trouble finding the target on Truax but like we mentioned, Truax is as tough as nails and he won´t go down without a fight. We do see this fight going to the later stages of the fight. There is a chance that Truax lasts the distance because of his toughness. If he gets stopped we see it happening late in the bout. Our Pick is Over 7.5 Rounds for a price of -140 (1.72 decimal odds) and the other pick is Caleb Plant to win by Decision priced at +240 (3.40 decimal odds)
