Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez vs. Caleb Plant: Eddie Hearn wants to 'get things moving' for unification fight this week

1 min read

Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez is on the verge of agreeing a date ahead of an undisputed super-middleweight clash with IBF champion Caleb Plant. 

After defeating Billy Joe Saunders in emphatic style in Texas last month, where he added the WBO belt to his WBA, WBC, and The Ring titles, the four-weight champion has only had eyes cast towards the undefeated American.

And that fight now looks closer than ever, with Matchroom boss Eddie Hearn revealing that Canelo and trainer Eddie Reynoso are stepping up their fight preparations this week.

Speaking to the DAZN Boxing Show, Hearn said: "We've exchanged some numbers on our side and I see Canelo on Wednesday to go through everything with him.

"But nothing has changed from the process of getting an offer from DAZN, an offer from Fox, and then deciding what everybody feels is best for the fighters.

"There will be some discussions from both sides, that's the purpose of this week, to go through the financials and then get things moving.

"But after this week you're going to see Canelo and Eddie Reynoso getting ready for camp, heading back to San Diego and preparing.

"Nothing's changed, Caleb Plant is the one that everybody wants."
