The plant must be reserved

“Dude, I’ve been at the level that Caleb Plant is fighting Pacquiao, Marquez. It just needs to be booked, it should be picked up, ”Tim Bradley told Fighthype.

“He shouldn’t be showing nervous energy. I understand he’s stepping up the fight, but stay relaxed, honestly. I saw that Canelo is super ripped, he looks fat.

“Plant, he looks like he’s in great shape too, but it’s going to be scary before he gets in the ring. He certainly has a lot on his mind, but he needs to control his emotions by being calm.

This is the greatest advice I can give him. I was a nervous wreck when fighting a Manny Pacquiao icon. As soon as Plant enters the locker room, leaves his hotel room, it’s gone.

“I think he’ll feel it as soon as he puts on those wraps and starts to prepare. It will be like riding a bike for him once he’s in the locker room. Stay relaxed, mate. This is the biggest advice I have for him.

He’s going to have to do it, there’s no doubt about it, ”Bradley said when asked if there would be a point in the fight where Plant will have to stand up and strike with Canelo Alvarez.

“I would say Canelo Alvarez is a very deceptive fighter. It puts pressure on you, it can also fight the back foot. He’ll let you punch and use the high guard to cheat a lot of guys. It is deception.

“He’s going to keep his hands up and make the guys knock, then he’ll look for openings. He’s fantastic at that. He’s one of the best. It will slide and find counters as well. His feints are also the coldest, ”Bradley said.

Caleb can’t be in no man’s land

“The position that worries me about Plant is almost like an involuntary move,” Bradley said. “I would do it sometimes during my fights. It’s just a habit.

“He kind of gets into no mans land where he leans to his right that way and uses the up-jab. What this does is it doesn’t allow you to use another punch.

“You’re in a bad position here, your legs are wide apart and you bend and jab. There is no power over it. You shoot a jab and it’s a bad position, especially against a left hook artist like Canelo Alvarez as he can find a left hook here [body] and find a left hook here [head].

“He can find a left uppercut here and a right hand over it, especially when you’re falling low trying to defend. André [Ward] Sometimes leaned into this position as well, and he was hit with a right hand from Kovalev while doing that, too. So you have to understand this at the same time.

“It’s just a position that you feel safe in, honestly. That’s how I felt when I was doing it, and I worry about that in this fight when Plant starts to feel that pressure, ”Bradley said.

Bradley chooses Canelo by knockout

“And I say this because Plant’s hardest fight has been [Jose] Uzcategui, ”Bradley said when reminded that he picked Canelo by knockout. “There is really nothing to compete against. It’s a completely different level.

“It’s almost like outer space. It’s the pinnacle of boxing. It’s [Plant] fighting arguably the # 1 fighter in the world, ”Bradley said of Plant. “So it’s a different atmosphere. It’s hard to breathe at this level.

“He didn’t fight anyone, even near this level. Uzcategui, I get it, he’s a big puncher and can box a bit, but he’s not Canelo Alvarez and that’s the thing.

“People say, ‘Why are you just going to choose it’ [Canelo] by KO? ‘ He took down GGG, get that, Canelo Alvarez. He took down the old big bad who can box. He can box, GGG can box, ”Bradley said of Canelo.

“Heavy jab, move, but he pushed forward. It’s the thing, ”Bradley said of Canelo.

“If he can take GGG down, do you think he’s going to have a hard time cutting the ring, grabbing Plant as he moves, throwing those body shots where he’s going, setting him up here,” to put it in there and force it to Plant to make mistakes, ”Bradley said.

Canelo will make adjustments in the second half

“Freaking him out just with his mere presence,” Bradley said of what Canelo can do to Plant.

“Fakes, feigning out of position.” Plant has a ton of skills but lacks Canelo’s experience. He doesn’t have that threshold that Canelo has, that battle threshold.

“Canelo is busy. This is the fourth fight in 11 to 12 months. It’s going to be sharper than a knife, sharp like a laser.

“Plante, how many fights has he had in the past two years?” Thank you, that’s what I’m saying, ”Bradley said when told Plant had only fought once in 2021.

“This is not a push in your favor. It’s a little hard for me to believe that he’s going to get mad when he hasn’t done enough homework and hasn’t been pushed.

“How the hell are you going to be ready for this test when you’re not studying, when you haven’t been pushed?” That’s my opinion.

“I think it will be interesting at first because Plant has the size and scope. Canelo will have to adapt to the speed as he has fast hands. He throws quick combinations and he will move and have some success.

“He’s going to transform Canelo, especially when he’s in high guard. He will be able to spin Canelo, but as soon as Canelo makes that adjustment in the second half, once Plant starts to slow down a bit.

These mistakes he makes become more apparent and that’s when you’re going to see Canelo Alvarez really level up and dig in and try to get him out of there, ”Bradley said.
