Canelo Alvarez and Caleb Plant are all set to lock horns on November 6, in the four-belt super-middleweight unification match. Alvarez currently holds the World Boxing Association (WBA), World Boxing Organization (WBO), and World Boxing Council (WBC) championship titles, having added the WBO title by defeating Billy Joe in a face-breaking bout in May.
Plant, on the other hand, holds the International Boxing Federation (IBF) title since winning against Jose Uzcategui in January 2019. He has made three successful title defences ever since he earned the title, whereas, Alvarez is on a 15 fight unbeaten streak, ever since losing to Floyd Mayweather in 2013.
The two fighters couldn’t wait for the title bout in November when they met for a press conference back in September. During the heated press conference, Alvarez hit Plant with a punch after things were said about his mother.
As per AP, after getting hit, Plant said, “We were just saying things, just the normal back-and-forth banter, and then he did what he did”. He also repeatedly called Alvarez a cheater for using banned substances. However, in reply to Plant, Alvarez said, “For me, it’s for history, for Mexico, for my team. I’m going to knock out this guy in less than eight rounds”.
