Boxing Odds: Bettors Backing Celeb Truax To Upset Caleb Plant
This Saturday we see Caleb Plant face Caleb Truax, with Plant looking to cement his status as one of the world's best hopes.
On Saturday we see two Caleb's fighting for Caleb Plant's IBF Super Middleweight title. The 28-year old has only 20 fights on his record, all victories with 12 KO's.
The American has really come to the fore over the past two years since winning the title against Jose Uzcategui. Plant hasn't fought in nearly 12 months, having last been seen in an impressive title defense against Vincent Feigenbutz. He's a heavy favorite to win this weekend at the Shrine Exposition Center, at -3000 to face Caleb Truax.
Truax has been on the scene for some time and the 33-year old has a 31-4 record, briefly winning the belt he's fighting for on Saturday night, in December 2017 against Britain's James DeGale. That reign didn't last long with DeGale reclaiming his belt four months later in the rematch. At +1800 the books don't believe the Minnesota native will win on Saturday.
