He also went on to apologise for the part he played in the pre-fight beef between the two men.

Canelo told Plant: “And I’m sorry for everything, but at the end of the day we are men, and we are human.

“I’m sorry for everything.”

Plant then apologised himself to Canelo after offending him in the build-up to the fight by calling the Mexican’s mother a ‘motherf*****’.

He said: “When I said ‘motherf*****’ I would never talk about your mother because I don’t have a mother. My mum died.”

And Canelo reassured him: “You have a really good and beautiful family. You are my family.”

Canelo offered the kind words to Plant after the American has previously suffered family heartbreak on more than one occasion.

The IBF champion has overcome the tragic death of baby daughter Alia, and later lost his mother Beth, who was shot dead by police.

Tensions however still flared between the pair in the run-up to the fight.
