Undefeated super middleweight prospect, Caleb Plant, will seek to continue his run of good form when he faces Thomas Awimbono over 10 rounds in the main event of Premier Boxing Champions from the Legacy Arena at the BJCC in Birmingham, Alabama, on Saturday, February 25th.
Plant feels that an impressive win against Awimbono will take him another step closer to world title contention.
“Fighting on FS1 once again is a tremendous blessing to my career,” Plant said. “The exposure I’ll get will be incredible. The goal is to win and win impressively. The time is now to show the world who Caleb Plant is. I’m here to entertain the masses.”
“Awimbono is a big puncher who has been in the ring with some top-level fighters. He’s never been knocked out, so I know he’s tough as nails. This will be his second fight of 2017, so I’m expecting him to be in shape and ready to fight. This will be a nice step up fight and one I see myself winning.”
“My career is progressing the way I envisioned it. Right now, I’m currently rated #11 in the IBF and with a few more wins, I’ll be ready to challenge for a world title. First, I must get past Awimbono. He is my main focus at the moment. But I’m thrilled to be moving up the rankings.”
