Plant vs Feigenbutz emanates from Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee. This bout is for the IBF super-middleweight world title. Caleb Plant is the defending champion and also will get the hometown advantage for this one.
Vincent Feigenbutz is looking to win his US boxing debut and rain on the parade of the reigning champion in his first pro fight at home. These top-level 168 lb fighters are looking to start off a strong 2020 campaign but only one can emerge victorious.
Plant vs Feigenbutz Odds
Odds taken Feb. 12th.
Plant’s last fight was a July 2019 TKO victory in the third round over the previously unbeaten Mike Lee. He notched his first successful title defense there and it will be interesting to see if this affects his confidence/galvanizes his performance further. Feigenbutz’s last fight saw him shut the lights out on previously unbeaten Cesar Nunez. This went down in August 2019 and saw Feigenbutz capture the GBU world title and IBO international title at super middleweight.
Plant Getting Back to His Roots
Feigenbutz is feeling slighted by some critics who put too much stock in his previous two losses which were via stoppage. He brings up those losses, which happened when he was 17 and 20 respectively, and he believes he is now a man. Finally settling into a period of athleticism/youthful exuberance combined with fight IQ/refined techniques.
Caleb Plant isn’t intimidated by the man dubbed by some “the KO King”. Past adversaries like Uzcategui and Lee had notable power but were not able to turn back the challenge of Plant. Plant had a streak of five straight unanimous decision wins before the highlight reel knockout in his last bout.

Feigenbutz is ranked #3 by the organization, is on a ten-fight win streak, and does have a lot working in his favor though. He’s also only 24 years old, has a 90 percent KO rate, and is riding a five-fight knockout streak. The title contender has collected a variety of international and intercontinental belts (WBO/IBF and IBO respectively) on his way up the 168 lb hierarchy. Still though, the resumes between the two just aren’t really comparable. Feigenbutz has picked up some respectable wins across Europe (mainly on the German circuit) but he has not experienced the kind of world title caliber tests that Plant has.
