Alvarez downs Plant to make super middleweight history

Saul Canelo Alvarez made history on Saturday, knocking out Caleb Plant in the 11th round to become the first undisputed world super middleweight champion by unifying all four major belts. 

Alvarez, 31, added the IBF belt to his WBC, WBA and WBO straps in a winner-takes-all showdown to join an exclusive club. He knocked Plant down twice in the 11th the first time with a left hook followed up by a right uppercut. 

Plant got up but was wobbly and still in a fog as Alvarez chased him around the ring. Alvarez pummelled Plant with rights and lefts to drop him for good at 1:05 of the round. The Mexican seized the WBA and WBC titles by defeating Callum Smith in December 2020, defended them successfully by overpowering Avni Yildirim in February and then clobbered Billy Joe Saunders six months ago to grab the WBO belt.
