Report: Canelo Alvarez vs. Caleb Plant Set For November

Canelo Alvarez and Caleb Plant have finally agreed to terms on an undisputed super-middleweight title unification bout.

ESPN's Mike Coppinger was first to report the news that after the pairing's initial September 18 matchup fell through, they've now gone back and agreed to a new November 6 date. The deal between PBC and Canelo is only for this fight, but according to Coppinger's report, there are hopes that the Mexican boxing superstar would hang around Al Haymon's company to pursue fights with other fighters in the PBC stable like David Benavidez and current WBC middleweight champion Jermall Charlo.
