The high-voltage matchup has already seen several dramatic moments in the build-up. The champions traded blows in the face-off, which produced bloodshed from both sides. And it assures an interesting fight when both men will collide in the ring to crown the maiden undisputed 168 lbs champion.

Canelo Alvarez is fresh from two wins this year. After grabbing the WBC and WBA title from Callum Smith in December 2020, he defended the belts against Avni Yildirim in February. He followed it with a win against Billy Joe Saunders for the WBO strap in May. This sheer activeness rightly calls him to be in a superior position.

‘Sweethands’ will have to earn Alvarez’s respect. He cannot let the Mexican take control of the fight. If Plant gets to dominate the initial stage, he can look for a finish. But this fight can be very tricky and it’s hard to predict anything beforehand.
