Canelo Álvarez defeated Caleb Plant and is the monarch of the super middlemen

Saúl “Canelo” Álvarez became the first undisputed four-belt super middleweight champion in history, knocking out Caleb Plant in the eleventh round on Saturday.

Álvarez (57-1-2 with 39 knockouts) knocked down his opponent twice in that penultimate chapter, to strip him of the IBF scepter, which he added to his collection of WBC, WBA and WBO championships, thanks to an excellent tactical performance and a powerful hit, which took the American fighter from undefeated, at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

The Mexican star, considered by many to be the best pound-for-pound fighter today, became the sixth fighter to hold four titles simultaneously. He joined Josh Tailor of the super lightweight as the only undisputed champion currently reigning in his category. (AP)
