The bad blood between Caleb Plant and David Benavidez comes to a head this afternoon when the two meet in a Showtime pay-per-view main event.

The winner will leave with not only bragging rights, but with the interim WBC super middleweight championship currently held by Benavidez, and a spot as mandatory challenger to undisputed champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez.

Plant and Benavidez have had a heated rivalry for years but have not been able to find their way into the same ring.

Meanwhile, Benavidez has captured multiple world championships while going undefeated and Plant also held a world title before losing to Alvarez, his lone career loss.

The supporting bouts will start at 2pm with the main event around 4pm
