Over the past few days, many fighters and boxing personalities commented on the Plant vs Alvarez brawl. Recently, Manny Pacquiao’s ex-coach, Justin Fortune, also shared his views on the same. In fact, he warned ‘Sweethands’ about the Mexican fighting star.

Speaking to Es News, he said, “If you can’t hurt Canelo, he’ll walk straight through you, and destroy you,”

Canelo, in general, never gets involved with his opponent outside the ring and always looks to settle his score inside the ring. But this was one of the few moments when he got violent prior to entering the ring.

The p4p king is firm in his pursuit to become the undisputed super-middleweight king. And Caleb Plant is his final test at this weight class. The 31-year-old holds all the belts at the 168-pound weight class, whereas Plant has the IBF belt under his wing.

Therefore, Alvarez will look to dethrone ‘Sweethands’ from his spot and cement his place in the history books.
