The pair do have a history of tension. Prior to Plant fighting David Benavidez, ‘Sweethands’ did express an interest in fighting the WBC middleweight champion.
Charlo was seen as an alternative if a rematch with Canelo Alvarez could not get made. But rather than that happening, Plant took on the ‘Mexican Monster’ as he came out second best.
With that being said, in the video Plant can be seen slapping Charlo. Thereafter, security intervened to break things up. Plant was then escorted out of the building, while Charlo went the other way.
Prior to that happening, Plant could be heard saying the following: “Don’t you ever grab me by my motherf****in’ face again like that, boy.”
