Match-day expectations ‘odds’

Tom disclosed that “Canelo Alvarez has proven to be one of the best boxers in the sport today and he is seeking to become the first ever undisputed super middleweight champion”.
However, “Caleb Plant, who is a skilled technician in the ring and extremely confident in his abilities [craft], wants to make history and not to become a footnote”, Tom revealed.
Both men, Tom anticipates, will bring into the ring, wealth of experience and a flaming determination to stage a world class boxing match for the boxing world.
According to Ryan Garcia, a lightweight boxer, he predicts “Canelo knocks out Plant around round 8, ‘cold’”.
Also, Prathamesh Singh Chauhan, a boxing author at EssentiallySports disclosed that, “Canelo edges over ‘Sweethands’ in every boxing department.
