    Yeah in terms of the message Plant was getting across, which is a valid one and needs bringing up, the only way it sticks is if he wins. We're conditioned to ignore the handbags of press conferences and weigh ins. But if ever one was a perfect snapshot of what will happen on fight night this was it. Plant will be overpowered and carved up. Really hope I'm wrong.

    Plant gets battered and so does any point he was trying to make, Buried in an avalanche of how great Canelo is.

    Team Canelo is gobbling all this up. To the casual, it has transformed Plant into a legitimate opponent... maybe even a dangerous one at that. When Canelo sweeps the floor with him, it'll be seen as a great victory for Canelo, rather than the foregone conclusion it always was. Team Canelo can offer seminars in how to pump up a shitty opponent into a "threat."

    Caleb Plant 'confident' of causing an upset

    Caleb Plant is adopting a siege mentality ahead of the fourth defence of his IBF super-middleweight title against Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on November 6.

    Mexico's Canelo Alvarez is regarded as one of the greatest fighters of his generation, boasting a record of just two draws and one defeat from 59 fights, and is actually ranked two places above Plant by American outlet ESPN.

    However, while Plant knows the odds are heavily stacked against him, 'Sweethands' certainly doesn't lack confidence heading into the biggest fight of his career.

    "I know I’m gonna win this fight," Plant told 'The Last Stand' podcast.

    "I’m confident as I’ve ever been.

    "So like I said up there, I don't need you guys to believe it, I don't need you guys to support me or root for me, I've been doing it my whole life without people doing that.

    "When the bell rings, can't none of y'all get in there for me anyways, so I don't need y'all [sic] to believe it, the only person that needs to believe it is me."

    Indeed, Plant is trying to get under Canelo's skin by using every trick in the book.

    For the most part it appears to be working as security had to separate the pair after a heated altercation during a press conference in Los Angeles.

    "Just normal back and forth," he replied when asked what had prompted the Mexican to fly into a bitter rage.

    "I'm going to beat you up, no, I'm going to beat you up, no, I'm going to beat you, no m-----------, no m-----------', but I guess he didn't like that.

    "He got one on me, but I got one on him, his arm was bleeding because his arm hit my glasses right here, pushed my glasses to my face.

    "Just gave me like a little cut right here, I don't even need stitches or like no surgery or anything like that, it's just like a scratch, but I didn't want it up there trickling down, so I put a band-aid on it."

    Plant also ripped into Alvarez for testing positive for the banned substance clenbuterol in the past and branded him a drugs cheat.

    "Because there's no room for that in our sport," he explained.

    "He was saying, 'I think Caleb Plant's insecure', but isn't testing positive for banned substances insecure?

    "Taking banned substances, isn't that insecure? Because taking banned substances doesn't stem from confidence, that stems from fear.

    "Fear of not making weight, fear of your conditioning being this, or your power being this, it doesn't stem from what you think you can do, it stems from what you think you can't do.

    "That's what banned substances stem from, that's why you take them, and I'm a clean fighter.

    "I know that in my heart, and I've always been a clean fighter and I always will be a clean fighter, I'm not a cheater.

    "That's one thing my dad has instilled in me since I was a little kid, we do not cheat, and I'm not a cheater.

    "I feel like more people should speak up on it and I feel like I have the platform to do it so I'm gonna [sic] speak up on it and he got mad about it but if it's not true what's there to be mad about?"

    Let's get this foregone conclusion over with, so Canelo maybe has to face a real opponent next time.
