Canelo Alvarez will take up the ring space one more time this year. He will fight under the big lights on November 6, and this will perhaps be one of his biggest fights of all time. This is because the p4p star will lock horns with Caleb Plant for the undisputed super-middleweight championship.

Canelo said, “Let me rub your new tattoo and take the pain away.”

Witty banter is a part of Canelo‘s training camp, but the ultimate aim of these training camps is to make a boxer better physically and mentally. Also, since Alvarez is on the brink of entering the ring for an exuberant encounter, he himself would look to be in the ideal physical and mental state.

Canelo is a true bigwig of the sport and he has the backing of millions of fans for all his fights. That said, the Mexican star would not want to disappoint them.
