Osseo native and University of Minnesota alum Caleb Truax gets another shot at a world championship boxing belt when he fights Caleb Plant on Saturday.

At 37-years-old, Truax is most recently coming off a majority decision win over David Basajjamivule a full year ago, while Plant, 28, beat Vincent Feigenbutz last February.

FOX will produce a national broadcast Saturday night featuring the Plant-Truax fight.

We caught up with Truax at his training gym in Spring Lake Park before he departed on Wednesday for the fight’s location in Los Angeles.
