Canelo Alvarez and Caleb Plant kicked off the press tour for their November fight, and things got off to a rough start as a fight broke out.
Alvarez and Plant got off on the wrong foot.
When Alvarez and Plant met each other on stage at The Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, CA, punches flew.

The two came together after being introduced by announcer Jimmy Lennon Jr. The press conference had barely even started, and Plant took a shot at Alvarez after the two had jawed at each other for about a minute.
Alvarez evaded Plant’s punch and countered before the two were broken up. It was a wild scene for a press conference, and Plant got the worst of the action. They are set to fight on Showtime pay-per-view on Nov. 6, with the winner taking all of the super middleweight titles.
Photos circulating on social media show Plant with a sizeable cut under his right eye. If he needs stitches, it could delay the fight. Stay tuned for the growing saga between
