The main event fight of Canelo vs Plant should start tonight around 9 p.m. PT on Saturday, November 6. (That's midnight ET and 4 a.m. GMT on Sun Nov. 7 in U.K.). Before the main event, though, the main card gets underway at 9 p.m. ET / 6 p.m. PT on Saturday. That's 1 a.m. GMT Sunday.
The Canelo vs Plant live stream goes live shortly, and it should be historic. Yes, that word gets thrown around a lot but there's few other ways to describe the main event coming up later tonight. The fight, emanating from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, will unify all the super middleweight gold in boxing.
Saul "Canelo" (that's Spanish for 'cinnamon') Alvarez is bringing the majority of the titles to the fight. So, for that one IBF title that Plant is putting up, Canelo is wagering his WBA, WBC, WBO and Ring Magazine championships. And with all that title gold on his person, Canelo is the huge favorite (odds below).
Most recently, Canelo snapped Billy Joe Saunders' WBO belt into his collection back in May, taking that title in front of a Texas-sized crowd in Arlington at the AT&T Stadium. He won between the eighth and ninth rounds, as the match was waved off when Saunders' right eye had swollen shut, while his chances of retaining that title closed along with those eyelids.
This path of triumphs positions Canelo as the Thanos of the super middleweight world, collecting one after the other. We've never had an undisputed super middleweight champion before, and this weekend we're gonna get one.
But what does Caleb Plant offer that Saunders, Callum Smith, Avni Yilidirim and Sergey Kovalev could not? That's a good question. The undefeated Plant has said he's going to win, and comes to this match with a record of 21-0-0, with 12 wins by KO.

Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez cheat sheet
16 years in the pro fighting world have given Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez a record of 56-1-2, with 38 KOs. The WBA, WBO, WBC and Ring Magazine super middleweight champion didn't walk away from his defeat of Billy Joe Saunders with much to prove.
Except we all knew that Canelo's drive to be the king of kings in the weight class would bring him to Caleb Plant. Their press conference this past week was much more relaxed than their first meeting earlier this year.
Caleb 'Sweethands' Plant cheat sheet
As recently as October, Plant was ranked as the second-best active super middleweight in the world by the Transnational Boxing Rankings Board, and he comes to this match having lived a life with some serious sadness.
His wife died in a hospital after being shot by police, and his daughter Alia passed away at 19 months old after suffering a respiratory infection.
Undefeated in in-ring action, Plant is the underdog this weekend.
