On January 13, unbeaten 168-pound contender Caleb “Sweethands” Plant will battle IBF super middleweight champion Jose Uzcategui in the main event of Premier Boxing Champions on FS1 and FOX Deportes, from the Microsoft Theatre at L.A. Live in Los Angeles.

Plant (17-0, 10 KOs), originally from Nashville, Tennessee but now living and training out of Las Vegas, Nevada, will put his boxing skills on display vs. Uzcategui (28-2, 23 KO’s), one of the biggest punchers in the division.

“This training camp has been great,” Plant said recently as he addressed the media. “We took everything to the next level as I do every camp. We stepped up everything for this camp, the sparring partners, the strength and conditioning, all of the training is on another level. I’ll be at my best come fight night and I can’t wait.”

Uzcategui has been on a great run himself and is looking for a first successful defense of his title, yet Plant is far from worried.

“Everyone says Jose Uzcategui is the boogeyman, but after January 13th, I don’t want no excuses,” said Plant. “He is a top fighter in the division, but I will take that spot after I take his title from him. All I can tell him is be ready.”
