Canelo’s head trainer Eddy Reynoso believes that the Four Division Champion will have to start pressuring IBF Champ Caleb Plant from the opening bell of their unification fight, which take place on November 6th.
Mexico’s Canelo Alvarez will be putting his WBC, WBA And WBO super middleweight titles on the line with hopes of ripping off the IBF World title from Champion Caleb Plant to become the first undisputed 168 pound champion.
Alvarez will be going into the ring for the fourth time in the space of a year, when he faces Plant in a ShowTime Pay-Per-View at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas.
“We’re very focused right now. It’s an emotional experience preparing for a fight of this magnitude. We’re anxious, but in a good way, as we head toward November 6,” Reynoso said.
“There’s no bad blood with Caleb in my mind. We’re just focused on making history. At the end of the day, we want to continue to build our name so that Mexicans around the world can galvanize around Canelo Alvarez.
Reynoso believes this is the biggest fight if Canelo Alvarez’s career and being the face of Mexican Boxing, will go a long way in making the World know that Mexican Boxing is No.1.
“The experience and heart that Canelo has are going to be the key to victory. We have to go out there and find Caleb Plant. He’s a good technical fighter, he has good legs and a good boxing IQ. We have to pressure him from the very start.
“Our focus is to make sure we show everyone that Mexican boxing is number one. If we’re able to get this victory and unify the division, we will really be making a big mark in the sport.
“This is the most important fight in Canelo’s career. As a prizefighter there is nothing bigger than unifying a division. That’s why we’re training so hard.”
Canelo and Plant were both involved in a brawl in their Pre Fight Press Conference and that ended with both fighters exchanging words and promising an action packed encounter on Nov. 6th. Canelo specifically promised Plant something special on that date.
