Caleb Plant Urges Canelo To Show Sportsman Spirit
It is said that the biggest winners in sports are those who don’t accept defeat. If athletes don’t like to lose, their taste of victory becomes even sweeter.
However, in the case of Canelo Alvarez (57-2-2), Caleb Plant believes that sometimes the acceptance of defeat is a good thing.
On May 7, Canelo suffered only the second defeat of his career against Dmitry Bivol, which created shock waves throughout the sport. Plant gave some words of encouragement to the Mexican boxer through his social media account.
These words created a split within the fans on his social media. The Alvarez supporters reminded him how he was looking for the approval of his defeat to the 31-year-old last November.
The critics came attacking the American for the mental weakness he showed during his defeat to Alvarez.
“If you don’t face a defeat, you can never overcome challenges and get better,” Plant said.
“The truth is sour. It doesn’t mean if we like it or not, we have to face it. The sooner we accept it, the easier we can overcome it,” Plant concluded.
