Canelo Alvarez made huge statements a couple of days back when he engaged in a huge brawl with Caleb Plant. The pair are set to take each other on November 6, and in a buildup to the fight, they were involved in a press conference. Here both Plant and Alvarez took wild verbal digs at each other and fans enjoyed their trash talks extensively.

But the matter escalated when the duo came face to face and the p4p king pushed Plant. Later, ‘Sweethands’ tried reverting with a left hook, but Alvarez dodged the same and landed a slap instead.

Recently, Eddie Hearn opened up to iFL TV on this entire incident and gave an honest opinion.

He said, “Canelo’s not the kind of guy that’s gonna start swinging punches, but if you push buttons and you disrespect him, he don’t give a f***. This guy is a serious fighter. Whether it’s on the street or in the ring, simple rules – don’t f*** with Canelo Alvarez.” (h/t Michael Benson)

Right from casual boxing lovers to hardcore enthusiasts, everyone was stunned to see the oppressive persona of Canelo Alvarez. The latter doesn’t really engage in trash talks or scuffles with his opponents prior to the fight, as he believes in answering his rivals inside the boxing ring.

However, he lost his cool somehow and later everyone saw what happened. Citing that, the Matchroom boss in his above interview warned about the same.

Will this brawl get the best out of Canelo Alvarez on November 6?

Canelo definitely seemed fired up in the press conference. He now shares a huge rift with the IBF champ, and this might help him put a performance of his life on November 6.
