In an eventful turn of events at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, tensions flared beyond the official weigh-in of boxing giants Errol Spence and Terence Crawford, who are set to face off for the unified welterweight crown.

Amid the excitement surrounding the much-anticipated fight, other egos also came into play, adding fuel to the fire beneath the boxing ring. Caleb Plant and Jermall Charlo, not directly involved in the Spence-Crawford showdown, engaged in a heated exchange of words that electrified the atmosphere.

The situation escalated when Plant, also known as 'Sweet Hands,' delivered a resounding slap to Charlo, a moment captured on video and now circulating widely. The reason behind Plant's sudden aggression remains unclear, leaving spectators and onlookers puzzled.

Witnesses claim that after the altercation, Plant yelled at Charlo, warning him not to provoke him again. The intensity of the confrontation left many wondering what sparked the animosity between the two fighters.

Adding further intrigue to the mix, it was revealed that Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez, the renowned Mexican boxer, is set to face Jermell Charlo, the twin brother of the slapped boxer, on September 30 in Las Vegas.

Some speculate that this upcoming bout could serve as a precursor to a potential rematch between Plant and Charlo, as the latter seeks to avenge his brother's perceived inevitable defeat against Canelo.

With emotions running high in the boxing world, fans eagerly await the outcome of both the Spence-Crawford showdown and the future confrontations involving Plant and Charlo, hoping for thrilling matches that will live up to the hype of being the best in 2023.
