Canelo Alvarez BRAWLS with Caleb Plant at press conference and CUTS him with punch which could now leave undisputed fight in doubt


Canelo Alvarez and Caleb Plant got into a surprise brawl at their first press conference on Tuesday.

The pair met for the first time ahead of their undisputed WBA, WBC, IBF and WBO super-middleweight title fight on November 6, but things descended into chaos during the face-off.

Prior to the start of the media event, the pair came nose to nose on the stage and exchanged words.

This went on for about 20 seconds until Plant seemingly said something which seriously offended Canelo.

The Mexican shoved the American, but for some reason no security was close to intervene.

Plant responded by walking back up to Canelo and swinging for him, but boxing’s pound-for-pound king was prepared and ducked underneath.

Canelo fired straight back with a counter left and a right hand before they were finally pulled apart.

After the clash, it could be seen that Canelo’s counter left hand cut Plant under his right eye.

They proceeded with the press conference regardless, but it is currently unclear whether or not this injury will delay the fight.

The presser was expectedly heated following this clash with plenty of insults exchanged between the fighters.
