Canelo Alvarez knew he was going to beat Caleb Plant and boxed with 'undisputed' written on gloves BEFORE winning belts | The Sun

SUPER-CONFIDENT Canelo Alvarez had "undisputed" written on his gloves on the night of his super-middleweight coronation in 2021.

The Mexican star boasted of undisputed credentials before the job was even done as he knocked out Caleb Plant in 11 rounds.

It saw him add the missing IBF from his WBC, WBA and WBO belt collection and made him just one of six men to ever win all four titles.

Canelo was so confident of achieving the feat, not only did he have undisputed printed on his gloves, he also had a ready-made jacket.

Alvarez, who has won belts in four divisions, scored two knockdowns with a round to go before the ref waved off the fight.

Plant, 30, was beaten for the first time in 22 fights, and transported to a local hospital in Las Vegas for precautionary checks.

But he later broke his silence after defeat and vowed to bounce back better than ever.

Plant posted: "I’ve bent most the world to my will and done it with nothing but passion and skill.

"I’ll be back. I showed I belong on the top level and I’ll be champion of the world again.

"I’ve never been scared to go big or go out on my shield. Thank you to all the fans and all my supporters."

Canelo admitted before the fight he had never felt such animosity towards an opponent, but later paid his respect to Plant.

He said: "He wanted to continue. I told him there is no shame. Of course I came out on top.

"Caleb is a good fighter. He was a difficult opponent with a lot of ability and I do respect him."

Back in March, Plant was beaten again by David Benavidez for the WBC interim super middleweight title.

Alvarez will face off against Brit John Ryder in the early hours of Sunday morning in his homeland.
