Canelo, Plant trade blows in explosive faceoff

Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez and Caleb Plant came to blows when their first face-off descended into a wild brawl on Tuesday night.

Canelo aggressively shoved Plant backwards. Plant then threw the first punch and Canelo responded by throwing a shot of his own until they were separated by security.

Plant was cut underneath his right eye by the melee.

Canelo and Plant will decide the undisputed super-middleweight championship on November 6 in Las Vegas.

“You can say whatever to me, but not to my mom,” Canelo said afterwards. “I’m going to fight anyone who says something about my mom. And he swung first. I just pushed him. He swung first, and I do what I do. He crossed the line.

“It will be over in eight rounds or less. I’m going to knock out this guy. Easy.”

Plant denied mentioning Canelo’s family and said: “We just had some normal back-and-forth banter up there and then whatever happened, happened. It’s none of my concern though. I’m focused and locked in on November 6.”

Mexico’s Canelo holds the WBA, WBC and WBO belts, while America’s Plant holds the IBF title, the only remaining belt outside of Canelo’s grasp, and is unbeaten in 21 fights.
