New, 33 comments

A press conference promoting a super middleweight title unifier between champs Canelo Alvarez and Caleb Plant nearly turned into a full-fledged fight after Alvarez pushed Plant.

After recovering his balance, Plant calmly walked forward and then threw a left slap at Alvarez, who ducked and threw his own pair of strikes as security officials quickly intervened.

Alvarez’s strikes left a visible cut under Plant’s right eye, per a photo posted by Twitter user MacMally.

You can check out a video of the face-off above, courtesy of Showtime Boxing, which will air the pay-per-view event in the U.S.

Alvarez, a WBA, WBC, WBO and The Ring champ, hopes to add the IBF belt currently owned by Plant to his collection. The fight takes place Nov. 6 at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Paradise, Nevada.
