Canelo Alvarez On Caleb Plant skirmish: “He’s Gonna Pay November 6th, I Have Something Special For Him”

By: Hans Themistode All of sudden, Canelo Alvarez is in a giving mood. After meeting Caleb Plant for the first time face to face before their November 6th, showdown, the Mexican star was enraged with what took place yesterday afternoon. Once the two stars sized each other up on the press conference stage, Alvarez shoved his man, claiming the IBF titlist said a few disparaging words about his mother. From there, Plant stepped up to Alvarez and connected with an open-handed slap. In an act of retaliation, Alvarez immediately let off two shots of his own, one of which caused a cut underneath the right eye of Plant. With tension between the pair at an all-time high, Alvarez continued to get animated as Plant accused Alvarez, his head trainer Eddy Reynoso, and their entire camp - of being drug cheats. Once those accusations were lobbied in the direction of the unified super middleweight titlist, he jumped out of his seat and attempted to get in the face of Plant once again. As the two were separated, Alvarez grabbed the microphone and revealed that come the night of their fight, he’ll have a heartfelt gift waiting for Plant. “He’s gonna pay November 6th,” said Alvarez during the press conference. “When somebody bothers me with a lot of shit, they know. I have something special for him.” Currently, oddsmakers are expecting Alvarez to walk away with the victory. The pound for pound star and multiple division titlist has faced considerably tougher competition throughout the course of his career. Since picking up world titles at both the middleweight and light heavyweight divisions, Alvarez has placed his flag in the 168-pound weight class. In December of 2020, Alvarez nabbed the WBA, WBC, and Ring Magazine titles during his one-sided victory over Callum Smith. Alvarez would then follow that up with back-to-back stoppage wins against Avni Yildirim and Billy Joe Saunders, the latter resulting in the WBO title being wrapped around his waist. As for Plant, while he holds an undefeated record through 21 professional fights, his resume is mostly viewed as unimpressive. Since picking the IBF super-middleweight title against Jose Uzcategui in 2019, Plant has gone on to defeat an unheralded bunch in Mike Lee, Vincent Feigenbutz, and Caleb Truax. But while most, including Alvarez, aren't expecting Plant to reach the final bell, the IBF belt holder simply can't wait until he makes the entire world eat their words. “The only thing better than proving people right, is proving people wrong,” said Plant. “Make sure you tune in.” The post Canelo Alvarez On Caleb Plant skirmish: “He’s Gonna Pay November 6th, I Have Something Special For Him” appeared first on BoxingInsider.com.

Shawn Porter: “More Than Errol Spence Jr., Keith Thurman, Terence Crawford Is The Most Versatile Fighter In The World”

By: Hans Themistode Shawn Porter’s career has been built upon facing the best fighters in the world. As a young prospect, Porter added the scalps of former champions Paulie Malignaggi and Devon Alexander, the latter resulting in Porter’s first world title reign. The Akron, Ohio native has continued to test himself throughout the years and as a result, he realizes that he’s faced just about everyone in the welterweight division. Porter’s impetuous nature has now led him to a November 20th, showdown against pound for pound star, and current WBO welterweight titlist, Terence Crawford. Having shared the ring against the likes of Danny Garcia, Keith Thurman, and most recently, Errol Spence Jr., Porter is convinced that Crawford’s skill and stature stand above all else. “It is,” said Porter when asked if Crawford is the most difficult fight of his career during an interview with FightHype.com. “Because more than Errol Spence Jr., more than Keith Thurman, Terence Crawford is the most versatile fighter in the world.” The versatility that Porter alludes to, has been on full display throughout Crawford’s career. In 2014, after being outboxed early on during his showdown against Yuriokis Gamboa, Crawford opted to move away from his orthodox stance and instead, fought Gamboa during the second half of their contest as a southpaw. The change in fighting style proved to be a good call as Crawford went on to pick up the ninth-round stoppage victory. In Crawford’s 2019 matchup against Egidijus Kavaliauskas, the multiple division titlist was troubled during the early stages by his Lithuanian counterpart. Crawford then opted to move away from his traditional boxing approach and proceeded to bully Kavaliauskas, knocking him all across the ring until he registered yet another, ninth-round TKO victory. As Crawford continued to show his multifaceted skills, Porter has taken notice. With the pair now set to swap fists in just over two months at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, Porter is making sure that his normal top-notch training camp, is taken to a whole other level. “The preparation is going to be bar none, better than anyone else that I’ve ever prepared for.” As Porter continues to put his body through the most grueling training camp that he’s ever endured, he's steadfast in his belief that it's a necessary evil in order to pick up the win. In the end, the former two-division champion believes that by the time his showdown against Crawford comes to an end, all who tuned in and ordered the pay-per-view or paid their hard-earned money to attend the fight, will give them a standing ovation for an unbelievable night of boxing. “You’ll see it all, skill vs. skill, talent vs. talent, heart vs. heart. This is one for the ages.” The post Shawn Porter: “More Than Errol Spence Jr., Keith Thurman, Terence Crawford Is The Most Versatile Fighter In The World” appeared first on BoxingInsider.com.
