Saul Alvarez makes history very calmly and methodically. He is confidently stepping up to the title of the most titled Mexican fighter of all time. He will not be the best. And not because of the quality of boxing, but because a boxer of this type will never be perceived as a Mexican.
On the line at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas will not only be Alvarez’s collection of WBA, WBC and WBO hardware that back up his claim to be the best of the 168-pounders, but also his current standings as both the sport’s pay-per-view bell cow and its top pound-for-pound fighter.
“There have been some guys who lost before the bell even rang against Canelo,”
said Plant during a virtual press conference in late October. “I think that’s why he’s so irritated with me. Some guys just come in and are there to hand over their belt, get their check and leave.
Perhaps Caleb is even more complicated than Saunders. First of all, because of psychological stability. It is psychologically impossible to break a plant at all. The main weapon of the American – movement and jab. With his front hand, he works no less skillfully than Canelo, so there will be no time to rest in the ring.
