ASHLAND CITY – On Wednesday, Nov. 27, Ashland City native and professional boxer Caleb Plant, along with help from his family and friends, gave out 100 free turkey to area residents. 

Plant said he felt blessed to give back to his hometown. He caught up with friends he had not seen in awhile, and he also provided an update for his next fight.

“We’ve got a few locations we’re looking at and a few different names, but nothing is set in stone,” Plant said. “We’re really going to start putting this together in the early months of 2020, but I’m pushing to bring it here. I’ve been pushing to get something here at Bridgestone (Arena) so people from this community and the surrounding ones can come out and support me.”

After Plant brought up Bridgestone, he was asked if there was any way he would lose a fight in his home state. 

“There’s no way I’m losing a fight, period,” Plant said. “I’m really doesn’t matter where I’m fighting at. Having it around here with my friends and family there would add a little extra motivation to get it done like I always have, though.”

Per Boxing News 24, Matt Lieberman reported that Plant is scheduled to face “mandatory challenger” Vincent Feigenbutz, who is 31-2, in his next fight. Feigenbutz has won 10 fights in a row and has 28 knockouts in his 31 wins.
