This past Saturday at the NRG Arena in Houston, Texas, middleweight prospect, Caleb “Sweet-Hands” Plant (11-0, 8 KOs), remained undefeated, winning by way of a unanimous decision against his toughest opponent to date in Tyrone Brunson (22-6, 21 KOs).
In the early rounds, Plant used an educated jab to offset the power punches that Brunson was trying to land.  As the fight went on, Caleb continued to apply pressure with the jab and started to land his overhand right.  Brunson, who was backing up most of the fight, had no answer to the technical boxing skills that Plant was displaying.  Caleb showed elusive defense throughout the fight when Brunson, who had a reach advantage, tried to land his combinations. Plant, who dominated in punches landed, won by an impressive unanimous decision.  Scorecards read 79-73 twice and 78-74.
With the victory, Plant is on the fast track to becoming a household name in the middleweight division.  As 2015 approaches the end, Caleb feels he’s right on pace to accomplish his goal of becoming a world champion.
“Everything is going as planned and I felt I showed a lot of maturity against Brunson,” said Tennessee native Caleb Plant. “Every fight is getting me ready for the next level.  As I step up in competition, I see myself going the distance more often.  It’s a good thing because you never want to rely on your power to win fights.  Although most of my wins have come by knockout, I’m more confident in my ability to box my way to a victory if I have to.  With another year or so under my belt, I’ll feel I’ll be ready to challenge anyone in the middleweight division.”
