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.

Alvarez is the current WBA, WBC, WBO, and The Ring super middleweight champion sporting a 56-1-2 overall record as a pro. He's coming off of an eighth-round stoppage victory over Billy Joe Saunders on May 8 after the British boxer suffered a fractured right orbital bone during the fight. Plant on the other hand is the reigning IBF super-middleweight champion and the Ashland City, Tennessee native is currently undefeated as a pro at 21-0. His last outing was a unanimous decision victory against Caleb Truax on January 30.
