Undefeated Super Middleweight Caleb “Sweet Hands” Plant (15-0, 10 KOs) is not biting his tongue when it comes to calling out fighters in and around his division.
In a recent Instagram post, Plant went off and called out tons of fighters that are affiliated with Al Haymon.
Plant mentioned everyone from James DeGale to Anthony Dirrell–and what’s more interesting is that Plant states that Dominic Wade and Immanuwel Aleem have turned down fights with him.
Check out the transcript below:
@calebplant: “I don’t take naps. Me and the money way to attached to go and do that.” Anybody from 160-168 can get embarrassed yes that means the winner of @david_benavidez_300 and @porkymedina yes that’s means @ronaldgavril who turned me down. Yes that means @loco_manolo who turned me down. Yes that means @iamdominicwade who turned me down. Yes @anthonydirrell or @andredirrell or @jamesdegale1 or @jcchavezjr or anybody in the divisions who feel like they poppin even if you didn’t get thought of enough to get tagged. I AM STILLLL TALKING TO YOU SO FEEL FREE TO TAKE OFFENSE. No we not buddies, we not friends. Don’t smile in my face when you see me out and don’t ask what’s up. Stop tellin AL that you wanna wait, stop tellin brad and them you wanna wait 6months or 5 fights down the road. So if there’s any confusion for any of y’all, Ive cleared it on my end. So go tell ya ppls you seen this 👀 go let ya homie know I posted it and I meant it. Go ahead and tell them “you just gonna let him do that….?” Go ahead and call my bluff. Go ahead and ask me if I meant it when you see me out. I’ve never turned down anything they’ve come to me with. #freesmoke
Plant, who won a 10-round unanimous decision in his last outing against Thomas Awimbono on February 25 in Birmingham, Alabama, is obviously looking for a step-up fight against a notable name.
Out of all of the fighters that Plant called out, who would you like to see him face next?
