Video: Canelo Alvarez destroys Caleb Plant with 11th-round knockout
Canelo Alvarez beat Caleb Plant in their fight at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on Saturday night in Las Vegas, Nev. via 11th-round knockout, and he really delivered the pain.
Canelo dropped Plant twice in the 11th. First, he knocked down Plant with a big left hook and powerful right uppercut combination. Plant put his gloves on the canvas to regain his balance following the punishment he took. He beat the 10-count and told referee Russell Mora that he wanted to continue.
As soon as the action restarted, Alvarez attacked immediately and peppered the wobbly-legged Plant. Plant could barely defend himself after the restart. Mora let the fight continue longer than it probably should have. He finally called it off 1:05 into the 11th round after Plant hit the canvas for a second time.
