  • Kim Loe

Canelo Alvarez explodes on the water bag as he warms up for his undisputed title match up with Caleb Plant.

With less than two months to go before what promises to be a mouthwatering super middleweight matchup, Canelo is well into training for his fight against American, Plant.

With all the belts on the line, the winner is set to break the records and become the undisputed super middleweight champ, taking the WBA, WBC, IBF, and WBO titles.

In the latest training footage from the Canelo camp, the Mexican can be seen in devastating form, unleashing some monster blows on the water bag.

Canelo is widely regarded as the current pound-for-pound champion.

With the exception of his 2013 loss to Floyd Mayweather, he has often breezed through fights, winning championships at four different weight classes, from light middleweight to light heavyweight.

In his last outing, he beat boisterous Brit Billy Joe Saunders in convincing fashion, leaving Mr Superb with a broken eye socket.

Now holding three of the championship belts, Canelo needs Plant's IBF title to complete the set and go one further than the legendary Joe Calzaghe.

Earlier in the year, the Alvarez V Plant matchup was initially set for September 18th but then swiftly put on hold after contractual disputes between the camps.

Canelo threatened to switch weights and face Russian Dmitry Bivol at light heavyweight before the Plant camp agreed on the November 6th bout.

The bookmakers and many experts are making Canelo the clear favourite for the Las Vegas showdown.

The latest training footage released by his coach Eddy Reynoso has done nothing to change those opinions.

Plant will have his work cut out, but the unbeaten southpaw does go in with a height and reach advantage and will be looking to spring a surprise victory.
