Fast rising super middleweight contender Caleb Plant faces the experienced Rogelio Medina this Satuday night in an IBF title eliminator bout at 168 pounds. The bout goes down at the Don Hasking Convention Center in El Paso, Texas and is the co-feature on the PBC’s FOX broadcast behind Devon Alexander vs Victor Ortiz. For Plant, a win here will keep the career trajectory on the rise.
Rogelio Medina stands in his way. Medina is a rugged veteran who has been in there with the likes of David Benavidez, Badou Jack and James DeGale so he is not intimidated by what Plant brings to the table. Plant is looking to get by Medina before he goes gunning for Benavidez, the current WBC world champion at 168 pounds.
In this latest TBC interview with our cameraman Marcelino Castillo, Plant talks about his upcoming bout with “Porky” Medina. Plant has stayed undefeated and is now 16-0 as he heads into Saturday’s fight. A world title shot is close and coud potentially come before the end of the year.
