This weekend, in a Showtime PPV event from Las Vegas, two former champions in the sport's most thrilling division will square off. There will be plenty of animosity between the combatants on the main card.

In a crucial 168-pound contest on Saturday inside the MGM Grand Garden Arena, David Benavidez (26-0, 23 KOs) and Caleb Plant (22-1, 13 KOs) will square off after years of teasing one another in interviews and on social media.

On Saturday, March 25, at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, on Showtime pay-per-view, Bernard Hopkins predicts Caleb Plant will beat WBC interim super middleweight champion David "The Mexican Monster" Benavides.

Fighthype quoted Bernard Hopkins as giving Plant the edge.

"I think he wins it more on what he has to prove. His skills speak for themselves. He's got it in experience." Plant and his trainer Stephen' Breadman' Edwards, are expected to have a solid game plan to take advantage of Benavidez's overaggressiveness and lull him into traps in the same way they did with Anthony Dirrell. "I think that's how he rolls with the aggressiveness and the chip on his shoulders type of mentality," said Hopkins when asked if Benavidez is too emotional at the recent press conference with Plant.
"I don't read into it too much when the guy is with that type [of action]. Yeah, it's a little mouthy with some fighters. I just think that's the way he gets himself pumped. I think without it, he would be basically ordinary. "I think that's part of his makeup to be a dangerous guy to fight, and one of the most sought out fighters in the professional business. So, I think that all comes into who he is," said Hopkins about Benavidez.

This will be an exciting fight for the fans, leading to a mandatory challenge for all the belts that Canelo currently holds. If Caleb Plant wins, we already know the result of a unification fight.
