Plant gets a cut during his press conference scuffle with Alvarez
Caleb Plant (21-0, 12 KOs) suffered a cut on the skin under his right eye during a fight at Tuesday's press conference before his fight with Saul Alvarez (56-1-2, 38 KOs). The opponents exchanged blows while posing for photographers face-to-face.
The Mexican claims he pushed the American away because he insulted his mother and previously called him a cheater. Plant threw out his hand first and Canelo was already punching back.
After one of Alvarez's punches, a dissection appeared on the American boxer's face. Plant claimed the injury was due to the sunglasses he was wearing at the press conference. The American says the injury does not change his training plans and he will begin sparring on Thursday.
The Alvarez vs Plant bout is scheduled for November 6 in Las Vegas. The winner will become the undisputed super middleweight champion.
