The fight started off with positive signs for Plant as his jab troubled Canelo early on.

It didn’t take long for the Mexican to start closing the distance as he systematically cut the ring and hit Plant with hooks on the head and body.

Canelo finally made the breakthrough on round 11 by crushing Plant with a left hook that put him on wobbly legs, then knocked him down with a follow-up right uppercut.

The American got back to his feet, roughly, but fought for just a few more seconds before being knocked down again and finished with a series of right hands.

With this victory, Canelo was crowned the undisputed WBA, WBC, IBF and WBO super middleweight world champion.

But Canelo insisted, “Don’t be ashamed, you’re a great fighter.

“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 said, “Can I tell you something?” When I said ‘Fuck mother’, I never meant your mother.

“Because I don’t have a mother, my mother is dead.”

Canelo replied: “You have a very good and beautiful family.

“You are my family.”
