As we near a Nov. 6 matchup between Canelo Alvarez and Caleb Plant, we have to go through all the press conferences to pique interest in the title fight. The two fighters got into an opened-handed scuffle, just as everyone expected.
Probably staged, but look at Canelo’s head movement…
The fact that Canelo moved his face in time 🤯🤯🤯

Unless these two met up and choreographed which hand he’s throwing and when, this footage is staggering. They’re professional boxers who’ve been taught how to defend their face since they were kids, but that type of raw skill is still impressive.
If this encounter foreshadows anything, it’s that Canelo is about to beat the brakes off this kid. Maybe don’t throw the left hand when it counts?
