Uzcategui vs Plant HIGHLIGHTS: January 13, 2019 - PBC on FS1
On January 13, 2019, Caleb Plant became the IBF Super Middleweight World Champion, defeating Jose Uzcategui in the main event of the first Premier Boxing Champions on FS1 and FOX Deportes event of 2019, which took place at the Microsoft Theater at L.A. Live in Los Angeles.
Plant dominated the whole fight as he maintained a fast and aggressive pace from the opening bell as fans cheered him on.
Plant started out strong with consistent and accurate exchanges, setting the pace early on for the night. Uzcategui utilized the second round to establish his powerful right hand but an unfazed Plant quickly took over the round and sent Uzcatgeui to the canvas for the third time of his career.
Shortly into the third round, Uzcategui suffered from a minor cut under his left eye but he fought through it and defended his recovery. Plant suffered a similar cut, but under his left eye causing a distracting stream of blood but it wasn’t a match for the focused challenger.
Despite entertaining exchanges in the later rounds, Plant soared above the plan of Uzcategui and maintained. Although Uzcategui used the championship rounds in attempt to shine one last time, Plant’s ring generalship, power and skill ultimately assisted with his uncompromising victory.
Plant becomes the IBF Super Middleweight World Champion and protects his unblemished record of 18-0, 10KO’s.
