If the fight between Saúl “Canelo” Álvarez and Caleb Plant has generated great expectations in the world of boxing, after their first face-to-face they have grown even more because the atmosphere heated up during their first press conference held in Los Angeles, California.
The sunny afternoon brought the two fighters together in front of the press during their first promotional activity before their fight on November 6th, in Las Vegas. Álvarez owns the World Boxing Association (WBA) Super Middleweight Super Championship, in addition to the WBO and WBC belts, while Plant arrived with his IBF belt.
As soon as they entered, they went face-to-face to pose for the cameras and an argument triggered an inconvenience that ended in blows, and although they were separated by security, the fight had already happened.
Both spoke to those present and promised to get the victory after their fight in Sin City. Some strong words were exchanged between the fighters and their teams in a rivalry that grows more and more every day and shows the desire that both have to fight and keep all the belts.
Alvarez added that Plant is not on his level and that he will beat him before the eighth round to confirm himself as the best pound for pound boxer today. For his part, the American was also aggressive and highlighted his undefeated record, which he says he will keep after the night of November 6th.
There are about six weeks left for this great fight and both will continue to work and attend promotional events. Canelo has a record of 56 wins, 1 loss, 2 draws, and 38 KOs. Plant, for his part, has 21 wins, no losses, and 12 KOs.
