Caleb Plant OR on Anthony Dirrell, unworthy ceremony, burial, grave, video, highlights, reactions | Biden News


Former middleweight champion Caleb Plant delivered the goal kick of the year, and was booed by the referee for his joy.

The 30-year-old Plant (22-1, 13 KOs), in the first fight since losing the IBF title to Canelo Alvarez last November, took down Anthony Dirrell (34-3-2, 25 KOs) after a bad blood-filled lead to the competition.

A ninth round KO saw the 38-year-old two-time WBC champion on the mat with referee Harvey Dock immediately waving him off.

But when Plant celebrated so much he imitated a grave and poured dirt on his opponent, the referee ran to hold him.

“No, don’t do that. Don’t do that,” said one commenter.

Another replied: “Caleb is disappointed by history but you don’t like that.”

The bad blood continued after the war with another type of bad skin being involved.

“I’m sure you all heard how he (Dirrell) hated me and how he said he would never let a white man beat him,” Plant said.

“Let me tell you something – hope doesn’t win a fight, talent wins a fight.”

He added: “I was in full control the whole time.

“My coach kept telling me to be patient and listen to the game plan and that’s what we did. And then it was a blessing, baby!”

Plant called out WBC middleweight champion Jermell Charlo who was sitting at ringside and considered moving up in weight class.
