Boxing News: Caleb Plant was left with a laceration on his face after exchanging punches with Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez during their first fight, which devolved into a vicious brawl.
When Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez and Caleb Plant’s first fight devolved into a violent brawl on Tuesday night, they threw fists.
When Canelo and Plant locked eyes, each hurling insults at each other, the situation was already tight.
The plant was forcibly shoved backwards by Canelo. The plant then launched the opening punch, after which Canelo retaliated with a shot of his own until security intervened and separated them.
The melee cut Plant underneath his right eye.
On November 6, Canelo and Plant will fight for the undisputed super-middleweight title in Las Vegas.
Canelo later remarked, “You may say whatever you want to me, but not to my mother.” “Anyone who speaks anything negative about my mother will be greeted with my wrath.” And he was the first to swing. I simply shoved him. I do what I do because he swung first. He went across the line.
“It’ll be over in eight rounds or less,” says the narrator. This guy is going to get knocked out. Easy.”
“We just had some typical back-and-forth banter up there and then whatever happened, happened,” Plant claimed, denying addressing Canelo’s family. But it’s none of my business. On November 6, I’m focused and committed.”
Canelo Alvarez of Mexico has the WBA, WBC, and WBO belts, and has already ended the undefeated streaks of British trio Callum Smith and Billy Joe Saunders since December.
America’s Plant is undefeated in 21 fights and has the IBF title, which is the only belt not held by Canelo.
Canelo is a four-weight world champion who is largely regarded as the world’s best fighter.
“You are not on my level,” Canelo had previously told Plant, “and you will see on November 6,” I assure you don’t want to argue right now.
“We came from nothing and put forth a lot of effort to get here.” Eddy was irritated by someone lying and slandering us. But it is what it is. All we have to do on November 6 is show everyone who we are.
“Caleb may be on par with Saunders and Smith, but he’s not on par with me.” I admire the fact that he isn’t here to give up. From everything we’ve seen so far, this is going to be a great fight.
“I know what I need to do, and I’m quite familiar with him.” He’s a good fighter, but I’m confident in my abilities. My background will give me an advantage in the fight. Caleb’s style is similar to Floyd Mayweather’s, Erislandy Lara’s, Austin Trout’s, and Saunders’.
“He’s insecure, which is why he came up with so many justifications for so many things. But that makes no difference to me. On November 6, I’m just going to try my best and win the fight.
“To be unchallenged is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for Mexico and everyone on my team. It’s fantastic for my career to be the unchallenged champion.”
Plant stated, ” “There’s only one thing I like more than proving people wrong: proving them right. That’s something I’ve done my entire life. People started talking about what I couldn’t accomplish and what I couldn’t do as soon as I walked onto the stage.
