Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez believes he will knock out Caleb Plant in 'less than eight rounds' - and then plans to conquer the rest of the world including Artur Beterbiev and Jermall Charlo before retiring.
Pound-for-pound king Canelo Alvarez will go to war with IBF super-middleweight champion 'Sweethands' Plant in Las Vegas for all five of the 168-pound belts.
Canelo set up his undisputed clash with Plant by destroying Billy Joe Saunders in eight brutal rounds in May.
That came just a few months after he annihilated Avni Yıldırım in Florida - and he reckons the result will be much the same just like his last two.
Speaking for the first time since their press conference ended in chaos, Alvarez told The Last Stand with Brian Custer: "I’m gonna knock out this guy in less than eight rounds.
"The first rounds is going to be difficult because of his style, but I know, I know how to break down that style. So maybe after five rounds I’m gonna do my things.”
Asked if he still plans to teach him a lesson in respect by breaking his jaw, he replied: "And I will, soon."
Both fighters had to be separated by security after winging punches at each other in their first press conference at The Beverley Hilton in Los Angeles ahead of their November showdown.
Canelo continued: “I just [took off my sunglasses for the face off] because I want to see the eyes good.
"But he don’t take his glasses off so, it doesn’t matter. But when I push him, you see when he’s coming I just see something, ‘he’s gonna throw something or do something’ so that’s why.
“The thing [that] bother me when he said ‘you m-----------’ - for us that means a lot. So for Mexicans it means a lot so that’s why for me he crossed the line and that’s why I push him.”
Canelo is motivated by his desire to become Mexico's first undisputed world super-middleweight champion when he defends his titles against Plant in Nevada on November 6.
“It means a lot for my legacy," he added.
"This fight is really important for us, for me, for Mexico, for the fans, for me team, because I’m going to be the first Mexican-American fighter to be undisputed champion.
"So for me it’s really important because at the end of the day I just want to make history.
We just have this goal, we just have this goal in a short time to unify these belts and after this we don’t know.
"We going to rest a little bit and then we’ll see. But I want to do the best fights out there. I just want to fight the fights that people want and make history, so that’s the only thing I want."News Now - Sport News
