These two do not like each other one bit and the Mexican icon drew blood a little early, planting one on his opponent's face at their press conference after reacting badly to something the American said. Plant swung and missed, and was left with a cut below his right eye. Considering the damage that Canelo inflicted on Billy Joe Saunders in May, that was just a hint at what's to come.

The Mexican fractured Saunders' eye socket, forcing the British star to retire in the eighth, and if Plant manages to get under his skin again this could get very tasty indeed.

As well as being two years younger than Canelo, the American has considerable height and reach advantages, which could go some way to balancing the scales.  

History is going to be made either way today, so follow our guide below to watch a Canelo vs Plant live stream online from anywhere.

Who is Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez? 

Saul Alvarez, better known by his nickname 'Canelo' (meaning 'cinnamon') is widely considered the best pound-for-pound boxer in the world.

The 31-year-old Mexican has been at the very top of the sport for a decade, winning 56 of his 59 professional fights and capturing world titles across four weight divisions: Light-Middleweight, Middleweight, Light-Heavyweight and Super-Middleweight.

Billy Joe Saunders, Callum Smith, Gennady Golovkin, Amir Khan and Miguel Cotto are just some of the stars that have fallen to Canelo, the single blemish on his CV being a majority decision defeat to Floyd Mayweather in 2013.

Who is Caleb 'Sweethands' Plant?

Caleb Plant is the undefeated IBF Super-Middleweight champion of the world. 

The 29-year-old American took the belt from José Uzcátegui in 2019 and has successfully defended it three times, knocking out Mike Lee in three rounds and Vincent Feigenbutz in 10, before going the distance with Caleb Truax.

Plant has won all 21 of his professional bouts, 12 of those by knockout, but Canelo represents a huge step up.
