Beverly Hills — Boxing press conferences usually don’t require a cutman.
Again, Canelo Alvarez and Caleb Plant usually do not punch for free.
The pair had a regular showdown on Tuesday in the Beverly Hilton’s roasting courtyard, overture to the super middleweight promotion at the MGM Grand on November 6th.
This was considered a bit more dramatic than usual, as Plant needed Canelo on social media long before signing the paperwork.
Plant first got on the microphone and began talking directly to Alvarez with an adjective involving his mother. When the plant actually looked down at Alvarez and did it again Pound for Pound King gave to the plant I crossed the stage with both hands.
The plant returned quietly and fired a jab at Canelo, but it missed. Canelo then reacted from side to side, knocking off the shades of the plant and opening the skin near the right eye.
Canelo has a score of 10-9, and the Showtime pay-per-view promoter, which features Canelo for the first time, has a score of 10.
But the context seemed really awkward. The plant chased Alvarez in a way that most others didn’t dare to do.
“To him, most fighters feel they’re already losing,” Plant said. “My goal was to go in the opposite direction, without overcompensation. I was going to let him know that I was going to win. He called Boo-Boo Andrade with the same word and the same name. I was there, but suddenly I did, and I talked about his mom.
“I don’t care what he brings to the ring. The difference is that I’m a better fighter. Today? He seemed angry with me. I don’t know, Lloyd is him. I think I was approaching. ”
The plant called Alvarez a “drug cheat” on his face. This is a previously nerve-wracking suspicion. Canelo was suspended for six months before the second battle with Gennady Golovkin in 2018. He tested positive for clenbuterol due to Mexican beef. It’s not an anomalous source of pollution, Canelo was negative on the test, revived and returned to defeat Golovkin by decision.
Some believed that the statute of limitations had expired, but before Valdes defeated Robson Conseikao on September 10, the plant took control of Oscar Valdes’s phentermine-positive test. Edelinoso trains Canelo and Valdes.
Canelo had an icy relationship with Golovkin and wasn’t amused by the pose of his recent victim, Billy Joe Saunders. But this is a new frontier of hatred.
“This is the most personal battle I have ever experienced,” Canelo said. “Everyone talks (trash), that’s what it is. I’ve seen what he puts on Twitter, but today it wasn’t.”
Canelo predicts he will win the undefeated plant within eight rounds, saying it is not one of his more difficult battles. However, Plant was comfortable at £ 168 and even fought £ 178 at some amateur events. At 6 feet-1, he is 5 inches taller than Canelo and has a reach 4 inches longer.
Factory in 2019 Joseus Kategi decided at Microsoft Theater And I won the IBF Championship. This will be his fourth defense of the only 168-pound belt that Canelo does not yet own.
At the age of 29, Plant has a variety of grudges of £ 168. He grew up near Nashville and talks about the “lack of boxing community” around him. His dad Eddie trained him, then Justin Gunbar, and they had to buy and open their own gym.
The plant was the top seed in a boxing tournament, but Eddie said he went to the committee in advance and asked if Caleb could finally be seeded. The plant feels it is his own one-stop metaphor.
His mother, Beth, was shot and killed by Nashville police officers after claiming to have pulled a knife. His daughter Aria died of a brain abnormality at the age of 20 months in 2015, but Aria’s mother Carman Briscolly had the opportunity to make it to Aria in 2019 by a doctor at the New York Post. Plant said he was absent from the boxing tournament when he said no.
“I’ve experienced something much bigger than boxing, like chewing and spitting him out,” Plant said. “Am I supposed to come here and behave like crossed fingers? And hope they’ll be successful on the night of the fight? If you feel something in your heart, You should say it out loud. If you keep the inner warrior silent, then the inner warrior will disappear. ”
There are also outside warriors. Given the tickets and pay-per-view that Plant and Canelo probably sold on Tuesday, he probably took it for the team.
Canelo and Caleb Plant are already hot.
Dodge that Canelo 👀
