Leading up to this clash for the undisputed super-middleweight status, the p4p king and the IBF titlist have developed quite a bit of bad blood. Right from the negotiations stage, the two have not seen eye-to-eye on almost anything.

While both fighters have made their case for why they want the titles more than the other, Canelo Alvarez‘s new training video suggests he is dead set on winning the throne.

In this new clip shared by EsNews, the Mexican champion can be seen flashing insane hand-speed. This kind of speed and motion shown in this video resembles and comes close to Ryan Garcia’s videos in which he shows off his own speed on social media.

Do you think Caleb Plant will be equipped with the right set of tools to counter such speed and in-ring agility?

Canelo Alvarez vs Caleb Plant: The bad blood

After a series of mix-ups in negotiations, the Mexican champion is now all set to fight Caleb Plant. In three weeks, the two champions will clash for the undisputed super-middleweight champion status at the MGM Grand, LV Nevada.

These 12 rounds are extremely critical for both fighters. This four-belt unification bout between the two champions will establish the first undisputed champ at 168 lbs.

In nearly a month’s time, both champions will head into battle to secure the undisputed champion tag. This is the base reason why there is so much tension between both corners.

However, this whole rivalry kicked off initially because of disagreements and adjustments during the negotiations.

However, this is not just a rivalry anymore. It has escalated to a whole new level at the recent press conference. Caleb Plant called the Mexican champ a “motherf****r” during the face-off. That did not sit well with Canelo, who inferred it as a shot at his own mother.

Alvarez initiated a brawl during the press conference by pushing his opponent. This led to Caleb Plant launching a left hook at him, and within a split second, Canelo landed a two-punch combination that even caused a slight cut under Plant’s eye.

Given the magnitude of the fight and the caliber of the two, it is safe to say, the winner of this 12-round fight will definitely go down in the history books.
