Caleb Plant On Press Conference Altercation: You’ll Never Hear Me Talk About Someone’s Mother

Videos of Canelo Alvarez and Caleb Plant getting physical at their pre-fight press conference flooded social media and headlines in an instant.

Initial reports alerted fans that Plant had a “big gash” under his right eye and it was bleeding “profusely,” ESPN’s Mike Coppinger tweeted. The cut was a result of a series of events: Alvarez shoved Plant, Plant stumbled, Plant attempted to hit Alvarez and, lastly, Alvarez immediately dodged it and countered with a sharp right hand, sending Plant’s sunglasses flying and security swooping in.

Coppinger said the altercation started because Plant called Alvarez a cheater, but later on, it was reported that Plant talked about Alvarez’s mother, causing him to initiate the first move.

But Plant rebutted and said he would “never” talk about someone’s mother.

Plant’s mother, Beth, was shot and killed by a police officer. Reports say the 51-year-olld was being transported to a hospital for a health condition, and she pulled out a knife and tried to injure the first responders and deputy.

She was shot before arriving at the hospital and was pronounced dead due to her injuries.

While it’s unclear why the incident happened, fans are revved up to see the showdown on November 6 for Alvarez’s WBC, WBO and WBA super middleweight titles and Plant’s IBF super middleweight strap.
