Canelo Alvarez ready to defeat “insecure” Caleb Plant

Canelo Alvarez still insists that his November 6th opponent Caleb Plant is an “Insecure person” and that he’s got the skills to defeat him when they meet for the undisputed super middleweight championship.

WBA/WBC/WBO 168-lb champion Canelo (56-1-2, 38 KOs) isn’t going to waste time playing the role of an amateur psychologist in analyzing what he sees in Plant (21-0, 12 KO) as a person.

Canelo’s primary focus is beating him to take his IBF title to become the undisputed champion when they meet in a little over three weeks from now, on November 6th, at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The fight will be shown on Showtime PPV.

Canelo counting on his experience

Despite Canelo having had problems against the boxers Floyd Mayweather Jr, Erislandy Lara, and Austin Trout in the past, he’s not worried about Plant’s technical skills.

Canelo feels that he’s a different fighter from the one that fought and lost to Mayweather Jr. in 2013, and he’ll have no issues dealing with Plant’s skills.

“It means a lot because this fight is one of my best fights because very few fighters become undisputed champion. So for me, it’s very important for my history,” said Canelo Alvarez to ESPN.

“He’s an insecure person. You can see with his body language that he’s an insecure person. I’m not worried about that. I’m worried about the fighter.

“He’s a good boxer, he’s got a good jab, but I have the skills and the experience to beat him,” said Canelo.

Alvarez has the advantage to defeat Plant, but that remains to be seen. Not too long ago, Canelo had problems with a past his prime Sergey Kovalev in 2019 and was getting outboxed by him until scoring a late 11th round knockout.

It’s scary to imagine what the 2013 version of Kovalev had been able to do against Canelo, and it might have been a step too far for the Mexican star.

Alvarez ready for Plant’s “complicated” style

“He’s a good boxer; he moves a lot. Everybody thinks that he’s complicated for me, a fighter that moves a lot in the ring, but I have a lot of experience. I fight with every style. I’m ready,” said Canelo when asked what problems Plant presents for him.

Boxing fans believe Plant’s style will be a “complicated” one for Canelo because the Mexican star still struggles against boxers, even now.

Canelo says he’s improved dramatically since his loss to Mayweather; we haven’t seen him face enough quality boxers for him to show that. He arguably lost to Gennadiy Golovkin in 2017 and was given a controversial win over the Kazakh fighter in their rematch in 2018.

Canelo’s fighters since then were either too old or lacked the boxing skills to trouble him the way Mayweather, GGG, and Erislandy Lara did years ago.

In Canelo’s last fight against former WBO super middleweight champion Billy Joe Saunders last May, he was getting outboxed by the British fighter.

Saunders was having much success until he faded in the seventh round and dropped his hands.  What would have happened if Saunders didn’t gas out?

“I think he passed the line with the bad words that he says,” said Canelo in alluding to Plant calling him a “mother f***” during their Los Angeles press conference last September.

“For us, the Mexican people, that word means a lot. Yeah, I take my risks. So if something is coming, okay. I take my risks,” said Canelo when told that he’s used the same “mother f*****” insult in the past himself.

Given how much Canelo detests the insult  Plant said to him, it’s disturbing that he’s it himself from time to time. If it’s such a bad word, why use it?

  1. Albert you sound like a jealous or bias individual speaking on Canelo’s career if the man would have been white or black would u have the same views.

    • Here we go with the race card . Our you woke ? Facts is facts canelo is a great fighter but when matched with someone with boxing skills he had trouble and ggg was robbed in that one fight and Sergei was robbed the first go round and mayweather beat him Billy joe got his faced smashed and canelo a cheater steroids come on man he’s a gosh dang cheater white black yellow facts

  2. Plant doesn’t hit hard. Can he take a punch to the ribs. Can he go 8 rounds thats the quest ? For defeat

  3. I’m rooting for canelo I think he is a very good fighter but as far as him pushing Caleb plant the way he did was uncalled for he is a pound-for-pound king and he needs to show a little bit of more class in my opinion

  4. Well I like canelo. Not as much if he’s dopeing to get an edge. That’s not cool, and maybe he is ensecure. I think plant can win if he can with stand the first 7 rounds if he does he can win a close fight, but I’m hoping the drug test is done right before the fight and another right after. That way everybody gets a clean fight. I think canelo wins by ko if he gets to plant early. I agree he lost to triple g. And he was doing
    Really lost respect for canelo.

  5. Outboxed and then he luckily wins all the time in the end of the fight. Your article is a bit biased. These boxers are elite athletes but he makes them look average to you I guess. They earned their spot in the sport. You’re saying that canelo magically won or knocked them out after struggling so much every fight? Give credit where is due.

  6. Anything can happen . No man iis unbeatable. You guys talk about Canelo like if he’s unbeatable. If plant don’t fade and takes canelo deep and outboxes him that’s were he could win this fight. If canelo works Plants body then takes him deep, then goes on top, he will win. Camelot at this point is the proven champ, I’m rooting for the underdog but my fears tell me that Canelo will tire out Plant.

  7. I’m wondering where you’re going to hide after commenting all this when Plant get his as$ beat badly.

  8. Andrade is middleweight.. not super middle weight!! And BJS did not have any success against canelo .. 3 or 4 punches is not successful .. just stfu. Benavidez is a good fighter but not a great fighter.. neither is Plant or Dirrell .. no super middleweight of middleweight is at canelos level. Just accept the truth you dumb ass.

  9. Canelo was the insecure one. Hilariously making a big thing out of MF remark and he does the same thing. Tainted!

    • Canello Yellow. Canello is a cherry picking biotch who lost to Floyd, Lara, GGG and arguably to Trout. He won’t fight Andrade or Charlo. I wonder why🤔. As for Plant, don’t underestimate this kid. I personally know him and what he has gone thru in his life. I introduced him to Andrade before his pro career started. That launched his quest for greatness. Now both boys are undefeated world champs.

  10. We all know who the insecure one is and it’s cherry pick Queen No Cojones DuckNelo..If No Cojones DuckNelo was so secure in his skills without the assistance of tainted meat he would have already fought and not COWARDLY DUCKED UNDEFEATED American Champs like Boogeyman Andrade for UNDISPUTED MIDDLEWEIGHT KING and Bad Ass Benividez when he had the belt at 168 instead of disgustingly HORRIBLE sparring partner/Uber driver Yelderbum SMDH..So what we are all going to witness in this next fight is No Cojones DuckNelo cherry picking all go wrong as he gets schooled and out classed by lesser version of Boogeyman Champ Andrade (No Disrepect) in Caleb Sweet Hands Plant !!!
