Alvarez’s fight fortunately did not clash with UFC 268’s headliner between welterweight champion Kamaru Usman and Colby Covington.

But it did start while Rose Namajunas, 29 was fighting Weili Zhang, 32.

And it appears UFC boss White – who started off in the boxing business – and his colleagues fancied checking in with Canelo.

The Mexican star, 31, later went on to knock out Plant, 29, in 11 rounds to add the IBF title to his collection which already boasted the WBC, WBA and WBO.

Later on, Usman, 34, beat Covington, 33, again in a rematch of their December 2019 classic, this time on points.

The welterweight king has called to fight Canelo recently, pitting together boxing and MMA’s most dominant champions.


But White, who viewed Alvarez’s brutal win over Plant, was quick to shut down the idea, but did welcome him into the octagon.

He said: “I watched the Canelo fight tonight. He don’t want to fight Canelo. He don’t want to fight Canelo.

“Come on, man. Let’s stop this s***. If Canelo wants to come over here, let’s do it. He don’t wanna box Canelo.”

White in 2017 allowed Conor McGregor, 33, to cross over to the ring to face Floyd Mayweather, 44, but the Irishman lost in round ten.

More recently, ex-UFC fighters Ben Askren, 37 and Tyron Woodley, 39, both lost to YouTuber Jake Paul, 24.
