Post Fight: CALEB PLANT
“It went exactly how I planned it would go. Absolutely. I’ve been telling you all week it wasn’t going to go 12 rounds and I stuck to my word and I tried to do that. I hope you guys had a good time.
“I tip my hat to Mike (Lee) because it takes a true champion to step between these ropes. But it’s ‘And Still’ just like I predicted.
“I think I have a high boxing IQ and I do this at a really high level. So it was just about making adjustments. He’s a big, strong guy and he just came in here to give it his all.
“Oh yeah, we can definitely unify (against Anthony Dirrell vs. David Benavidez winner). I ain’t hard to get a hold of. I ain’t hard to make a fight with. Come see me. You know my advisor.”
