Boxing’s main event this weekend will see Jose Uzcategui and Caleb Plant battle it out for the IBF world super-middleweight title.
And Uzcategui is determined to prove he belongs in the spotlight when he puts his belt on the line for the first time at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.
“I am looking forward to getting in the ring and showing all my talent and put on notice all the champions in this division,” the Venezuelan-born fighter said.
“I want to be the best and I am willing to face the best.
“It should a great fight with Plant, I will take the fight to him and I hope that will be willing to engage and give the ans a spectacular fight.”
Plant, 26, has been dreaming of a world title fight for some time now and is eager to grasp the opportunity.
“This has been a lifelong dream of mine to be fighting for a world title, and now that time has finally come,” he said.
“Any time that a pro fights for his first world title, it’s something that they’ve always dreamed of.
“This is something that I’ve always wanted. I’m excited to be here and be a part of this great night.”
