Canelo vs Plant: Date and time
On Saturday, November 6, a 12-round super-middleweight title battle will actually happen.
The MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada, is hosting the event.
Because it is being hosted in America, fans in the United Kingdom should expect the main event to begin about 5 a.m. on Sunday morning.
Canelo’s WBA (Super), WBC, WBO, and The Ring super middleweight belts will be on the line, while Plant’s IBF super middleweight title will be on the line.
The UK TV rights are yet to be confirmed, although it will air on FOX PPV in the United States.
What occurred during the press conference between Canelo and Plant?
As their first press conference devolved into violence, Canelo left Plant with a gash on his face.
The two met face to face on the platform before the start of the media event in Beverly Hills and exchanged words.
This carried on for approximately 20 seconds when Plant allegedly muttered something that enraged Canelo.
The Mexican shoved the American, but no security was there to interfere for whatever reason.
Plant retaliated by approaching Canelo and swinging at him, but the pound-for-pound king was ready and dodged beneath.
Before they were eventually separated, Canelo struck back with a counter left and a right hand.
After the fight, it was clear that Canelo’s blow had cut Plant’s right eye.
The battle is expected to draw a large number of boxing fans, and tickets are already on sale. Ticket sales for fight nights at the MGM Grand Garden Arena can be made directly through the MGM Grand Garden Arena website.
Naturally, not everyone will be able to attend the event and see the fight, but that is alright since boxing fans will be able to watch the bout through live stream.
