LAS VEGAS — Canelo Alvarez and Caleb Plant have made it clear heading into Saturday's undisputed super-middleweight title fight they respect each but won't be hanging out with one another.
Before Alvarez and Plant settle their score in the ring to determine the first four-belt champion at 168 pounds, they tipped the scales to make the fight official. There wasn't much drama in that nature as Alvarez came in at the super-middleweight limit at 168 pounds while Plant was one pound lower at 167.
The big question coming into the weigh-in was whether they would face-off as they didn't at Wednesday press conference of the physical confrontation at the introductory presser back in September.
It did happen, kind of. Plant was awaiting Alvarez. The Mexican star made his way towards Plant but the head of the Nevada State Athletic Commission Bob Bennett grabbed Alvarez's left arm and attempted to pull him away. Despite that, Alvarez and Plant were close enough to hurl comments at one another with the crowd roaring for Canelo before more security came in.
"It’s time. He will feel something different," Alvarez said after the weigh-in. "Believe me.
"Like I said before, for every action, there’s a reaction."
Here is what happened at the Canelo vs. Plant weigh-in.
