Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez will decide Caleb Plant talks, says Eddie Hearn

The Mexican is aiming to become the undisputed super-middleweight champion.

Eddie Hearn believes that Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez will ultimately decide negotiations over his proposed fight with Caleb Plant.

Following the Mexican’s May victory over WBO super middleweight champion Billy Joe Saunders, leaving just Plant’s IBF belt in the way of Canelo becoming the division’s undisputed champion.

Hearn is maintaining his ad hoc working relationship with Alvarez for the proposed fight with Plant, and he outlined the plans.

“That’s the decision for Saul ultimately,” he said of the planned negotiations on the DAZN Boxing Show.

“What my job ultimately is, along with Saul ‘Canelo’ Alavres, is to make an offer to Caleb Plant, to make that fight a discussion. 

“It’s, 'Let’s have a discussion about the numbers that are in place for both fighters.' We will make an offer to Caleb Plant through the PBC to make that fight for September. I expect a reciprocal offer for Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez to do that fight on Fox.

“What I’m very concerned about at the moment is the run of pay-per-view fights that are up and coming.

“I believe that the way pay-per-view is going, the numbers are going to start getting affected by the saturation of pay-per-view in the marketplace. I’m very concerned about pay-per-view numbers in general. I’m saying, let’s look at the offers. Where Canelo Alvarez is comfortable is taking the fight, we will do it.

“That’s the fight we want, we hope Caleb feels the same, I think he does.”
