The fight between Canelo Álvarez and Caleb Plant continues to cause fury and expectations for the confrontation of the November 6 grow. This time it was Mike tyson who joined to speak and chose his favorite.
In his Hotboxing podcast, the legendary boxer tipped the balance for the Mexican and noted: “Caleb Plant is not going to last 12 rounds.” At that time, one of his guests questioned his opinion and stated: “Plant will teach him boxing.” Even so, Tyson did not modify his vision and went even more thoroughly by analyzing the performance of each one in which he stressed: “I’ve seen them both and Canelo is going to dismember Plant, he’s going to execute him, he’s in the shit, Álvarez is going to kill him (…) When Canelo turns on ‘his button’ nobody stops him “
The cross between Saúl Álvarez and his 29-year-old American rival has generated a lot of controversy in recent days and both heated up the fight with chicanes and worn. Even in the face of the presentation of the fight there were pineapples and insults. It was there that Plant said he would be the new champion and, to Canelo’s laugh, he threw: “Keep laughing, you son of a bitch, because you’re going to find out pretty soon.”. But that was only the start.

At the moment in which both fighters were face to face, Plant said something to him that was not heard and Canelo answered with a shove. The Yankee went to look for him, a couple of pineapples flew and Caleb ended up with his right eyelid cut: there was an uppercut that blew his glasses off and he left with blood on his face.
Some time later, Álvarez used his social networks to justify his anger and together with the video of the tense moment, he wrote: “Don’t talk about my mother.” Instantly, Caleb replied with a strong message: “My mother was killed by the police two years ago. Why would I talk about someone else’s mother? (…) They will never hear me say anything about someone’s mother, wife or children.”

As the days went by, the controversy continued and Canelo also continued to raise the tone of the controversy and questioned the humility of his rival. It is that Plant was talking about his origins seeking to show a humble profile and in his social networks he sought to differentiate himself from the Mexican saying: “No way do you believe that shit … The truth is that he is angry because he has someone in front of him who is not afraid of him and is not here just to collect a check and his ego cannot handle it.”
