Canelo Alvarez ENJOYED breaking Billy Joe Saunders’ eye socket and is desperate to inflict pain on Caleb Plant

CANELO is on another brutal revenge mission to batter Caleb Plant the same way he crushed Billy Joe Saunders – and he is going to enjoy it.

Last May, after brave Brit Saunders taunted the Mexican over his doping ban between his Gennady Golovkin bouts, the superstar shattered his eye socket and pounded him into submission.

Tonight, the WBC, WBA and WBO super-middleweight king tries to become the undisputed boss by grabbing Plant’s IBF title and the blood is bad after a press conference scuffle.

And Canelo, 31, says his 29-year-old American rival is in for the same terrifying treatment as Saunders.

When asked if he is in the same punishing mindset, he said: “Yeah, I’m going to enjoy it a lot, just watch.”

And when pressed on if he took pleasure in inflicting Saunders’ first professional loss and perhaps retiring him, the ruthless assassin said: “So much, so much. I enjoyed it so much, he deserved it.”

The biggest draw in boxing is a Las Vegas showman and enjoys most of his success in Sin City, where the Plant clash is happening.

But the malicious mastermind reckons he fancies a UK trip to thrill our dedicated fight fans soon and his English speaking has come on bundles too.


He teased: “I would love to fight in the UK for sure. We will see in the future, but I would love to do that.

“I make a lot of mistakes speaking English, but I don’t care because I try to do my best.

“I speak a lot of English with my friends in San Diego when I play golf, when I play cards so I practise a lot then so I’m more confident.

“I think that right now I don’t care if I make mistakes because that’s a good way to speak.

“I don’t care if I make a mistake as long as I learn from it and move forward because you are richer for it.”

The pound-for-pound icon is now a four-weight champion and a master on the golf course.

Unlike most mere mortals who need years to hone their skills on the greens and fairways, the flame-haired ace is already a sharpshooter and dreams of facing Tiger Woods.

“Everything I try, I do it 100 per cent and I’m good,” he revealed.

“You just need practice, practice and training.”

BT Sport Box Office will show Canelo v Plant exclusively live in the UK on Saturday 6th November.
