Although taken to the final bell in his first 10-round bout, Plant gained a clean sweep of the judges’ scorecards to earn a unanimous decision.

Plant floored De Angel in the fourth round with a left hook, highlighting a dominant performance in which the 168-pound prospect was never threatened.

The 24-year-old native of Ashland City, Tennessee, dictated the action from the outset, working largely behind his jab and using his footwork to continually frustrate De Angel, who was unable to find many openings.

Neither fighter was particularly aggressive or accurate, but Plant outlanded De Angel 120-57 in total punches according to CompuBox despite throwing 12 fewer blows (418-406).

The closest Plant came to any real danger was in the ninth round, when an accidental clash of heads left blood streaming from his forehead. Otherwise, he showed himself both the more powerful and more elusive boxer throughout the fight.
