'Sweethands' Prepared to Defend Title

Undefeated IBF Super Middleweight World Champion Caleb "Sweethands" Plant and undefeated contender Mike Lee, made their grand arrival at Las Vegas' MGM Grand on Tuesday, July 16.

The two fighters are scheduled in the FOX PBC Fight Night main event Saturday night, July 20, preceding the pay-per-view showdown between Senator Manny "PacMan" Pacquiao and unbeaten WBA Welterweight World Champion Keith "One Time" Thurman.

The bout, set for the MGM Grand Garden Arena, will be Plant's first defense of his title.

"He can train as hard as he wants, he's going to need more than that. He can do all the talking he needs but chins don't have muscles. He's either going to wave the flag or I'm going to wave it for him," Plant said of Lee to fans that greeted them at the MGM Grand.

Televised coverage begins at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT with rising unbeaten heavyweight sensation Efe Ajagba squaring off against undefeated 2016 Turkish Olympian Ali Eren Demirezen.
