After the two were separated, Showtime’s Brian Custer asked Canelo Alvarez and Caleb Plant why they decided to lay hands on each other. Both men, to no surprise, had different reasons.
“Because he’s a bitch,” Plant said of Alvarez (via BoxingScene). “First off, all we was doing was staring at each other. He had something to say, I had something to say. He’s gonna beat me, I’m gonna beat him. And then, you know, he did what he did. So, you have to ask him that question.”
Alvarez was quick to respond to Plant where the Mexican says the American said stuff about his mom which he won’t allow.
“He can say whatever he wants to say to me, but not to my mom,” Alvarez said about Plant. “Because I’m gonna [knock] out everybody who say something to my mom. You know, and he swing first. I just push him, but he swing first. Then just, I do what I do.”
