Canelo, only king: knock out Plant and unify the super middle

Eddy Reynoso planted a crown on Canelo Álvarez so that he would be proclaimed sole king of the supermedia. It is what he least deserves, because what the Mexican has done is already history (he is the eleventh fighter to unify in the era of the four belts, first Latino). In December 2020 he did not have a division belt and now has all four titles after taking three undefeated and a mandatory defense out of the way. Caleb Plant was the last stop on his challenge. This Saturday he realized him and knocked him out in the eleventh round. “It took me a bit to decipher it,” he acknowledged on the ring. It was always thought that the American would be the fighter who would cost him the most. It was not so much trouble as monotony, Plant raised a fight that did not allow the Mexican to show off … until he connected a crochet and an uppercut that ended everything. He is the king. There is no discussion.

Canelo gave away the first minute and a half of the fight to see what Plant was bringing. The American got work, but without risking. He was moving too much. It was clear that Álvarez had to close the gap and began midway through the first round. Little by little he closed spaces, but the task was not easy. The IBF monarch moved a lot and fought the fight. With the jab he connected to the tapatío. An ugly fight, because in computation, After the first two rounds, Álvarez hit more, but it wasn’t flashy. The one in Tennessee made it ugly.

That factor, the constant rhythm cuts, they got Canelo a little crazy. “Don’t just knock him out,” Eddy Reynoso would say to him in the corner. He had four rounds left and he wanted him to be smart. TOlvarez lowered the revolutions one point and was walking towards a victory on the points. It was better, but it wasn’t showing off. Everything changed in the eleventh round. With a left crochet he managed to catch Plant, who when he fell received an uppercut. He fell to the ground and tried to follow, but was KO. Canelo went after him and the American couldn’t even escape. The referee stopped the actions in a very successful way. With two hands the new absolute king made forget all the above. “Now i need to rest“Canelo asked when talking about the future. Four fights in less than a year and against three undefeated champions he deserves it. He has swept the division and earned a vacation. He goes to them, making it clear that the only king is Santos Sául Álvarez Barragán.
