By Allan Fox: Caleb Plant has purchased the Davidbenavidez. com website for what many believe to be trolling purposes to anger/irritate his opponent David Benavidez ahead of their March 25th fight on Showtime PPV at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

It’s questionable whether Plant purchasing a website bearing Benavidez’s name will have a lasting impact and alter the way the fight plays out on March 25th.

Obviously,  the former IBF 168-lb champion ‘Sweethands’ Plant needs this win more than anything because he wants the rematch with Ccanelo, which will give him another massive mega-million payday, but he’s going up against the boogeyman of the super middleweight division in Benavidez (26-0, 23 KOs).

Caleb Plant needs this win BADLY

Plant will turn 31 in July, and he’s not a young 31. He’s aging and going up against a more youthful, stronger, faster, and tougher 26-year-old Benavidez on March 25th. It’s fair to say that if Plant loses this fight, it closes the door to his dreams of getting a rematch with Canelo.

It would take too long for Plant to build his way back to get in position for a rematch with Canelo, and he doesn’t have enough years left to get to that point.

“If I was going to cherry pick and make money, I would have gone with Uzcategui and then Caleb Plant, but I said, ‘No, I’m going with Caleb Plant,'” said David Benavidez to Showtime Sports.

“At the gym, he and my brother got into it, and he sucker punched my brother, and that’s just what made it happen,” said Benavidez on what led to his issues with Plant.

“He’s had a lot of stuff to say about me, and I don’t like what he has to say about me, and I don’t like the type of person he is, and I’m going to make him pay on March 25th.

Benavidez to push for a knockout

“I’m going to push for the early knockout. This is pay-per-view, and you have to. I want to be a PPV star, and those types of early knockouts make for pay-per-view stars.

“You see, Gervonta Davis, he’s an animal and knocks everybody out, and I respect him a lot. That’s the type of fighter I want to be.

“If you go back and watch that fight. Why did Canelo have problems in the first couple of rounds? Because he’s short, his arms are short,” said Benavidez on why Canelo Alvarez struggled against Plant in their fight in 2021.

“I’m taller than Caleb, and my arms are longer than Caleb. When you saw Anthony Dirrell at the beginning of the fight, he had a little more success than Canelo did at the beginning of the fight [against Plant] because he’s taller, he’s bigger.

“I’m taller, I’m bigger, I’m stronger, and I’m faster, and I punch from every angle. So on March 25th, I’m coming.

“It’s extremely important,” said Benavidez when asked how important his fight with Plant is. “Besides Canelo, this is the most important fight for this division. It’s going to bring a lot of lights to the super middleweight division.

“I feel there’s a lot of fire here. There are a lot of great fights to be made, and I’m excited to bring the super middleweight division back to boxing. This is the era of David Benavidez, and in the next 15 years, all you guys are going to talk about is David Benavidez.”

Plant’s spying won’t help

“I’m not looking at his stuff. Why is he looking at my stuff?” said Benavidez about his belief that Plant is spying on his training camp.

“No, that’s not a problem,” said Benavidez when asked if he was overtraining for Plant. “You need to know when to give a body rest, and you need to know when to put it on.

“I’ve been boxing for 23 years, my whole life. I’ve been a professional for ten years. So I know my body, and I know when to give it rest and when to push it. Overtraining it’s not going to be an issue at all.

“Big lights aren’t going to scare me,” said Benavidez about him and Plant fighting in front of an expected large crowd on March 25th at the MGM Grand Garden in Las Vegas. “If anything, it’s going to motivate me and make me do my job.”
