Canelo Alvarez vs. Caleb Plant odds are on the board, as this four-belt unification fight is set for November 6 in Las Vegas.

The 29-year-old Plant has yet to suffer a defeat in his pro boxing career, but he opened as a massive underdog against the legendary Canelo in what will crown the first undisputed super middleweight champion of the four-belt era.

Here are the latest Canelo vs. Plant odds for the November 6 fight.

Canelo vs Plant odds analysis

Saul "Canelo" Alvarez enters this fight as the No. 1 ranked pound-for-pound fighter in the world and is fresh off an impressive performance against Billy Joe Saunders in May, where he landed 52.7 percent of his power shots and forced Saunders to retire before the ninth round after breaking his orbital bone. 

Alvarez has been fighting professionally since he was 15 years old and has won world titles in four different weight classes. In 58 career bouts, Alvarez has only been defeated once, a decision loss to Floyd Mayweather in 2013. Since then, he has reeled off 14 wins and a draw. 

Canelo has big wins over Gennady Golovkin, Miguel Cotto, and Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. on his resume, and is no stranger to lopsided odds. The Mexican was a -700 favorite against Saunders and closed as a whopping -5,000 favorite against Avni Yildrim earlier this year before forcing the challenger to quit on the stool after the third round. 

Alvarez might give up five inches of height and four inches of reach to Plant but he has faced far stiffer competition than his undefeated opponent. The 30-year-old Plant has successfully defended his IBF super-middleweight title three times but was a huge favorite against each overmatched foe.

Plant was a -1,450 favorite against Mike Lee in his first defense in 2019, -3,333 chalk against Vincent Feigenbutz last year, and installed at -4,000 against a past-his-prime Caleb Truax in January.
