‘F*** you’ – Canelo involved in furious confrontation with Demetrius Andrade who wants fight after Billy Joe Saunders win but it looks like Caleb Plant is next

Demetrius Andrade was involved in a furious war of words with Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez after his crushing victory against Billy Joe Saunders on Saturday night.

More than 73,000 people were in attendance for the highly-anticipated fight, which began with Saunders exploding out of the blocks with a ton of energy, but failing to land a scoring shot.

After Saunders’s early burst, Alvarez took control of the ring to trap the Englishman in the corner and sneak in multiple shots to the body.

The momentum briefly switched in the fifth round when Saunders stunned the Mexican with a strong left hook.

However, Alvarez quickly regained his composure, outworking his opponent until he landed a flurry of head punches in the eighth round which opened up a cut below Saunders’s right eye – causing his corner to call the fight.

Following the TKO victory, Alvarez now holds hold three of the four belts in the 168lb division, but current WBO middleweight champion Andrade clearly wants a piece of the action.

Interrupting the questions, Andrade started clapping and said: “So when can we get something going on? Let’s make it happen. What’s up, Canelo? Congratulations today though, good job baby, good job. I’m a big fan… but what’s up though? When can we make it happen? What you think?”

Canelo was in no mood for Andrade to try and steal his thunder, retorting in perfect English: “I know [you’re a fan]. Man, you fight with nobody. You are a champion but you fight with nobody. You won the belt with nobody.”

Andrade hit back: “A lot of people haven’t fought nobody. What you mean, bro? Rocky Fielding [who Canelo beat in 2018] – who did he fight?”

Things began to escalate at this point, with Andrade’s father and trainer Paul also shouting at Canelo: “You avoid him at 154, you avoid him at 160, now you’re going to avoid him at 168.”

Security demanded the two men leave, while promoter Eddie Hearn – who also promotes Andrade – pleaded with them to stop, before Alvarez shouted: “Get the f*** out of here, man. Please, get the f*** out of here. It’s my night.”

Andrade’s father then exploded and was immediately escorted out, yelling: “Don’t you say to him to get out here. F*** you. Go ahead, come. Come. Be a b****. F*** you.”

Andrade himself also flung insults at Alvarez, saying: “Don’t swear at me. Don’t talk to my dad like that. I’ll f*** you up. I just asked you a simple question. What you gonna do? You tough? Watch your mouth bro. I congratulated you bro, watch your mouth.”

Canelo immediately returned fire, saying: “Hey, get the f*** out of here because I’m gonna f*** you up right now motherf*****. Hey, get the f*** out of here.

“Hey, you are a horrible fighter man. You never won against a good fighter. You are a horrible fighter. Horrible fighter. Just pay day, pay day, you want pay day, I know that.”

Andrade is coming off the back of a win against Brit Liam Williams last month, but Canelo has already announced his plans to go for the undisputed world super-middleweight title and challenge Caleb Plant next.

The IBF champion retained his title with a convincing win against Caleb Truax at the start of the year, with the Mexican pound-for-pound star now honing in on the American.

“That’s my plan, to go for the belt,” Canelo told DAZN when asked if he wanted Plant next following victory in Texas.

“I’m coming my friend.”

Beating Plant would see him become the 168-pound division’s first-ever undisputed champion, be it in the three- or four-belt era, but the pound-for-pound king, though, is not averse to fighting Jermall Charlo either – and neither is the middleweight.

“I’ll lose my title and got to 168 to make the happen now,” he wrote on a deleted Instagram story. “Boxing needs to see this.”
