Now his promoter Eddie Hearn has confirmed the IBF version is next in his sights.

American Plant has that, with the 28-year-old undefeated in 21 fights.

Hearn has told the DAZNBoxing show that ‘talks will begin this week for Canelo vs Caleb Plant’.

And the 41-year-old promoter has named the new Allegiant Stadium in Vegas as a potential venue.

Canelo is likely to want to fight on Mexican Independence weekend, so that fight is possibly pencilled in for September 18.

Speaking after he delivered a brutal eighth-round uppercut to shatter Saunders’ dreams, Canelo said: “I have the best trainer, here’s Eddy, he tells me, I prepare, do this and I do it.

“The plan is to go for the other belt [Caleb Plant owns], I’m coming. I hope so.”

Canelo has not lost since a 2013 split decision defeat to the legend Floyd Mayweather.
