Canelo Alvarez leaves Caleb Plant covered in BLOOD after furious scrap at spectacular pre-fight press conference

CANELO ALVAREZ gave Caleb Plant a taste for what is in store on November 6 by landing a HUGE right-hand on his upcoming opponent at a promotional event.

On Monday the pair announced they have agreed a deal to fight in Las Vegas at the beginning of November.

And the first press event to publicise the event descended into chaos on Tuesday afternoon.

It began when Canelo pushed Plant backwards, with the 29-year-old then throwing a punch at Canelo.

Canelo, 31, showed lightning-quick reactions to dodge the left hook and then lit up Plant with an excellent combination before security stepped in.

An excellent right hand from Canelo shows what is in store for the 21-0 Plant, who was left bleeding as a result of the Mexican's fury.

The Tenessee fighter suffered a big gash under his right eye, and is a serious injury which has the potential to postpone the fight, according to ESPN reporter Mike Coppinger.

Naturally, fans are already going wild on social media in reaction to the brawl.


One fan commenting on Plant said: "Serves him right for trying to hit Canelo with a cheap shot. Elite head movement and counter from Canelo too."

Another added: "Who threw the first punch? Once you do that you can’t really complain, nevertheless absolutely insane scenes I hope the fight still goes on."

A third said: "Welp see y’all in January 2022."

Errol Spence jr. also weighed in, saying: "Damn can’t get countered like that."

Plant is not the first to test Canelo's patience during a press conference.

After defeating Billy Joe Saunders in May Canelo's post-fight presser was disrupted by middleweight rival Demetrius Andrade.

Canelo belittled Andrade for becoming a champion without defeating any big names, before telling the American to "Get the f**k out of here".
