Canelo Alvarez is all set to enter the boxing ring for the third and most probably the last time in 2021. He will take on Caleb Plant, in the biggest and perhaps the most important fight of his career. This bout is important because it has all the super-middleweight titles on the line.

That said, the winner will not only become the undisputed champ, but he’ll be the first man in history to achieve the feat in this weight class.

As fight week is on, the media spotlight is on both boxers even more. Recently, the p4p giant, Canelo, was involved in a chat with FightHype. In the clip, he sported a busted lip and damaged nose.

This video caught everyone’s attention in no time as it was a closeup and Alvarez’s scars were clearly evident.

The Mexican boxing stalwart is known to push the boundaries in his workouts. As a result, he might have succumbed to a few injuries during his grilling training and sparring sessions.

As Canelo knows the value that this fight holds in his career, he doesn’t wish to leave any stones unturned in his training and preparations for the same. Even if the stakes were not this high, his beef with Alvarez would have motivated him to go that extra mile to be able to trounce ‘Sweethands’ in the ring.

Will this be an easy fight for Canelo Alvarez?

‘Sweethands’ Plant holds the underdog status in this fight. However, his ability to walk down opponents with his stern boxing game has the potential to trouble Canelo. Citing that, this fight won’t be an easy one for the unified super-middleweight champ.

Both Alvarez and Plant have the hunger to get a mammoth win on fight night. However, it will all come down to who displays the better skills and who has the better composure in the ring on November 6 in Las Vegas.
