Victories by Caleb Plant, Frank Sanchez and Emmanuel Rodriguez

Anthony Dirrell is defeated by Caleb Plant in the ninth round. American Caleb Plant defeated his fellow countryman Anthony Dirrell in an International Boxing Federation (IBF) super middleweight eliminator in the evening’s less-than-stellar fight Wilder vs. Helenius.

Plant’s record improved to (22-1, 13 KOs), and Dirrell’s rose to (34-3, 25 KOs).

Negron dropped to (24-1, 14 KOs), while Sanchez dropped to (25-4, 20 KOs).

When Rodrguez was cut in the ninth round due to a head-on collision, the Puerto Rican’s corner stated that he was unable to continue, and the fight was decided by scores, with Rodrguez winning 100-90, 99-91, and 99-93.
