Many think it’s written in the stars, but Canelo’s bid to become the first boxer to unify the Super-Middleweight division is no foregone conclusion with undefeated IBF world champion Caleb Plant standing in his way. These two do not like each other one bit, so read on as we explain how to watch a Canelo vs Plant live stream and catch all the boxing action online from anywhere in the world.
The Mexican icon drew blood a little early, planting one on his opponent’s face at their press conference after reacting badly to something the American said.
Plant swung and missed, and was left with a cut below his right eye. Considering the damage that Canelo inflicted on Billy Joe Saunders in May, that was just a hint at what’s to come.
The Mexican fractured Saunders’ eye socket, forcing the British star to retire in the eighth, and if Plant manages to get under his skin again this could get very tasty indeed.
As well as being two years younger than Canelo, the American has considerable height and reach advantages, which could go some way to balancing the scales.
History is going to be made either way this weekend, so follow our guide below to watch a Canelo vs Plant live stream online from anywhere.

How to watch Canelo vs Plant from outside your country
We’ve already rounded up ways to watch the boxing in various countries around the world. But if you’re abroad this weekend and your home coverage is geo-blocked, then the only alternative that we know is to use a VPN to dial in to a country where the fight is being shown.
The software is generally ideal for this as it allows you to change your IP address and appear to be in a completely different location – and all through a safe, encrypted connection. Here’s how to get started.
Use a VPN to live stream Canelo vs Plant from anywhere
Remember, there are loads of benefits to using a VPN beyond just helping you regain access to streaming services and content from abroad. One of the biggest is security: by using encrypted tunnels, streaming VPNs give you a robust first-line of defense against cybercriminals and government snooping. This makes everyday tasks like online shopping and banking much safer, and many people choose to use one for that reason alone.
Who is Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez?
Saul Alvarez, better known by his nickname ‘Canelo’ (meaning ‘cinnamon’) is widely considered the best pound-for-pound boxer in the world.
The 31-year-old Mexican has been at the very top of the sport for a decade, winning 56 of his 59 professional fights and capturing world titles across four weight divisions: Light-Middleweight, Middleweight, Light-Heavyweight and Super-Middleweight.
Billy Joe Saunders, Callum Smith, Gennady Golovkin, Amir Khan and Miguel Cotto are just some of the stars that have fallen to Canelo, the single blemish on his CV being a majority decision defeat to Floyd Mayweather in 2013.
Who is Caleb ‘Sweethands’ Plant?
Caleb Plant is the undefeated IBF Super-Middleweight champion of the world.
The 29-year-old American took the belt from José Uzcátegui in 2019 and has successfully defended it three times, knocking out Mike Lee in three rounds and Vincent Feigenbutz in 10, before going the distance with Caleb Truax.
Plant has won all 21 of his professional bouts, 12 of those by knockout, but Canelo represents a huge step up.
