Saul Alvarez Preview – Canelo puts it all on the line

This will be the first fight for Alvarez since defeating Britain’s Billy Joe Saunders in Texas earlier this summer.

He retained his WBA and WBC titles in that fight.

But just as importantly Canelo took the WBO title from Saunders and now has the final one in sight.

That will be Plant’s IBF crown.

In the boxing betting outright for this fight, Alvarez is the strong 1/12 odds-on favourite* (odds recorded 18:46 GMT on 5th November 2021).

The Mexican is now on an astonishing 58-1 career record with the one defeat happening against Floyd Mayweather Jr back in 2013.

Our betting prediction:
Alvarez to win in Round 7-12

* (odds recorded 18:46 GMT on 5th November 2021)


After dominating the middleweight division, Alvarez moved up to the super middleweight successfully in December 2020.

That was when he took the WBA title from Britain’s Callum Smith and also earned the vacant WBC super-middleweight title.

Saul Alvarez has successfully defended those titles twice now.

There has been one knockout delivered by Canelo in his last five fights.

But he forced retirement on Avni Yildirim and Billy Joe Saunders in his last two.

Canelo has only gone the distance once in his last five fights (against Saunders).

So the prediction for boxing betting would have to be a stoppage by Alvarez at 8/15* (odds recorded 18:46 GMT on 5th November 2021).


Caleb Plant Preview – Can undefeated Plant shake up the division?

It has been 21 fights and 21 wins for American Caleb Plant and he is on the up and up in boxing.

His big career breakthrough moment came in 2019 when he took the IBF super-middleweight title by a unanimous decision.

He has since defended that title three times, two of those successes coming by a knock out.

But this on the weekend will be the biggest test of Plant’s career.

He has not faced anyone that is anywhere near the quality of Canelo.

In boxing betting, Plant is a big 7/1 underdog* (odds recorded 18:46 GMT on 5th November 2021).

He is going to have a lot on his plate in Las Vegas, to be fair.

Caleb Plant is quick on his feet and he is going to need all of that energy to get some early footing in the bout.

He has to keep Canelo at a distance. There is no way that Plant has the power that his opponent has.

But Plant is quicker, has quicker hands than Alvarez has.

Will that be enough to create openings against arguably the best pound for pound fighter that there is in the world?

Under 9.5 Total Rounds is at a quote of 4/5* (odds recorded 18:46 GMT on 5th November 2021).

Alvarez by KO TKO or DISQ for boxing betting is at 8/15* (odds recorded 18:46 GMT on 5th November 2021).
