Don’t get too personal

Backing his demeanor, Canelo’s team later even emphasized how he is not one to engage in trash talk and especially throw hands at a press conference. Although, the Spanish speaker explained his infuriation as he inferred Plant’s “motherf****r” as a shot at his mother. However, Plant later clarified the alleged misunderstanding, explaining how he would never take shots at his or anyone’s mother.

In a recent Instagram post, Caleb Plant wore a t-shirt that read “undisputed motherf****r“. He even added a video compilation of all those times Canelo himself said the word “motherf****r” in both English and Spanish. He captioned the post, See you motherf*****s NOV6TH.”

Can Caleb Plant get past Canelo Alvarez?

Stepping into this fight, Caleb Plant is the taller fighter (6 feet 1 inch) with a longer reach (74 inches). In comparison, Canelo Alvarez is 5 feet 8 inches tall with a 70.5 inches arm reach.

Judging by Caleb Plant’s last professional bout against Caleb Truax in January 2021, he will try to capitalize and double down on his natural physical advantages.

On the other hand, Canelo Alvarez is coming off a win over Billy J. Saunders in May. Even in his last fight, the Mexican champ faced a taller opponent with a longer reach.

Against Saunders, he was able to close the distance with skillful combinations and world-class movement. He landed two straight jabs while using his full guard to block shots. These jabs would then allow him to land sharp body shots and overhand rights from inside the pocket.

Over the years, Canelo Alvarez has faced many fighters with similar advantages and approaches. However, this will indubitably be Caleb Plant’s toughest challenge to date. Given the caliber of the two, it is safe to say, the winner of this 12-round fight will definitely go down in the history books.
