The drama is finally over and Boxer Canelo Alvarez has knocked out Caleb Plant to take away the super-middleweight championship.
The two boxers put in some masterclass jabs even though it was clearly they were having much respect for each other during the entire fight.
Canelo was clearly the better side chasing his opponent to the far corners and that paid off in the 11th round when he put Caleb’s back on the floor.
The Mexican’s win means he now adds IBF belt to the WBA, WBC and WBO championships.
He sent a special thank you message to those supporting him from day one upto this level.
“I want to thank everybody here tonight,” Álvarez says in Spanish through a translator. “It hasn’t been easy to get to this point. But with in your support, my family, my team we’ve gotten really far. This is for everybody, especially from Mexico, it’s another one for our team. We did it tonight.”
