Jose Uzcategui now IBF super middleweight champion, Caleb Plant next
IBF super middleweight interim champion Jose Uzcategui will no longer have the interim title placed in front of his name as the 27-year-old power puncher is now the full-fledged world champion.
Uzcategui, who stopped Andre Dirrell in their rematch earlier this year is one of the most ferocious punchers in the division as a whole will now look to defend his belt in the near future. Uzcategui was awarded the full version of the world title after James DeGale announced earlier this week that he planned upon vacating.
So who is next?
Well, it is Caleb Plant, who won the #1 contender bout early this year against “Porky” Medina by way of a dominant decision.
Information on when the bout will be announced coming shortly.
