Tempers are reaching fever pitch for Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez ahead of his fight with Caleb Plant for the undisputed super middleweight championship in Las Vegas on November 6.

Showtime's All Access revealed what was said between the two world champions before their heated press conference which also saw the pair come to blows.

Speaking at an open workout, Canelo admitted this rivalry with Plant is different to any other he's been a part of.

“It’s new for me to have this much bad blood with an opponent," Canelo said.

"It’s very different from normal and it’s definitely the most animosity I’ve had with an opponent heading into a big fight."

The Mexican also gave his prediction for the upcoming fight at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

"I’m sticking with my prediction of a knockout before round eight."

"The first couple of rounds will be difficult, but as the fight progresses, I am going to be able to get him out of there."
