Caleb PlantUndefeated middleweight prospect Caleb “Sweet Hands” Plant (10-0, 8 KOs) returns to the ring in an eight-round bout as part of a stacked undercard on Saturday, October 31 from NRG Arena in Houston.

The October 31 event is headlined by Premier Boxing Champions (PBC) on NBCSN featuring undefeated rising star Jermell “Iron Man” Charlo (26-0, 11 KOs) out of Houston taking on former world champion Joachim Alcine (35-7-2, 21 KOs). Televised coverage begins at 11 p.m. ET/8 p.m. PT with power-punching prospect Tony Harrison (21-1, 18 KOs) taking on Cecil McCalla (20-2, 7 KOs).

Tickets for the live event, which is promoted by Leija*Battah Promotions, are priced at $163, $109, $49 and $22, plus applicable fees.

Undefeated with all but two victories coming by knockout, the 23-year-old Plant returns to the ring fresh off of a victory in September over Jamar Freeman. The Ashland, Tennessee-born fighter will be fighting in Texas for the first time as a pro, looking to display the knockout power that has helped him accumulate his undefeated record. A victory on October 31 would make him 6-0 in a busy 2015.

The Houston-flavor continues with Uzbekistan-born Bahodir Mamadjonov (17-2, 11 KOs), who fights out of Houston, in an eight-round super lightweight bout, 22-year-old Christon Edwards (4-0, 3 KOs) in a four-round super welterweight bout.

Further action features 30-year-old Levan Ghvamichava (15-1-1, 12 KOs) of Poti, Georgia in an eight-round lightweight showdown against Honolulu’s Cameron Kreal (8-7-2, 1 KO), 25-year-old Jonathan Morales of Channel View, Texas against Patrick Simea (1-3) from Houston in a four-round super middleweight contest and the pro debuts of Allison Edwards of Spring, Texas and California’s Kathryn Talley as they compete in a four-round lightweight contest.

Rounding out the night of fights is 21-year-old Marshall Sanchez (1-0) of Humble, Texas in a four-round flyweight bout against Elio Ruiz (1-6) of Austin, Texas, Lucia Osegueda (5-1) of Baytown, Texas facing Dallas-native Jasmine Clarkson (2-4) in a four-round lightweight bout and 26-year-old David Limerick Jr. (4-0, 2 KOs) of Katy, Texas squaring-off against Guatemala’s Rolando Rivas (3-2-1, 2 KOs) in a four-round welterweight bout.
