Canelo, boxing’s unanimous pound-for-pound king, holds the WBA, WBO, WBC and The Ring super middleweight titles.

The four-weight world champion will put all his belts on the line against unbeaten American fighter and IBF champion, Caleb ‘Sweethands’ Plant, as both men attempt to unify all four belts.

There is no love lost between the fighters, with the pair coming to blows during their first face-off at a press conference in Beverly Hills in September.

The flare up came after the fighters exchanged words and saw the Mexican shove Plant, before going on to cut the American on the face when the pair threw punches at each other on the stage.

Alvarez has swept through the super middleweight division since returning to 168lbs in 2020, recording victories against British fighters Callum Smith and Billy Joe Saunders, who were both previously unbeaten until facing the heavy-handed 31-year-old.

His opponent, Plant, has defended the IBF belt three times, recording two impressive TKOs and a unanimous points decision since claiming his title from former champion Jose Uzcategui in 2019.

The blockbuster pay-per-view event will be available to buy on BT Sport Box Office for £19.95 and will be preceded by a BT Sport Fight Night, live on BT Sport 1HD from 7.45pm.

Zach Parker, the WBO mandatory for the winner of Canelo vs Plant, will feature alongside Nathan Heaney and Lennox Clarke in the Birmingham event.

Both cards will ensure fight fans are treated to a full night of action featuring some of the world’s biggest stars alongside British boxing’s best up and coming talent.
