Caleb Plant expressed his supremacy on social media, reflecting a portion of his hard-fought life in the past. He wrote, “You can’t break a poor boy’s chin”, which was a message for the P4P king Alvarez. Meanwhile, Canelo Alvarez has responded to it.

In a chat with Constntino, the three-belt unified super middleweight champion didn’t hesitate to slam his rival, as he claimed to have faced similar adversities in life.

Alvarez said, “I was poor too. I can break your chin. I also grew up not having anything, but I’m not going to tell everybody so they feel pity for me and make myself the victim.”

All this banter has now intensified the excitement for the matchup. Both men have had their verbal war, which can continue for the next few weeks. However, only an in-ring clash will settle the odds, citing a clearer picture of the most elite super middleweight in the division.

A division that had three world champions in December 2020, now only has two. Canelo Alvarez snatched the WBC and WBA titles from Callum Smith, before grabbing the WBO from Billy Joe Saunders in May. Now, IBF champion Caleb Plant stands in his way, as the Mexican dreams of becoming the first four-belt unified champion.

Undefeated as a professional, Plant could favour himself over Canelo Alvarez. But that isn’t how boxing works. Mexican star Alvarez has been beating undefeated champions for a long time and Caleb Plant’s resume may not terrorize him. Billy Joe Saunders had a much better resume than Plant, but couldn’t offer any threat to Alvarez in the ring, back in May.
