Caleb Plant takes aim at Canelo Alvarez and trainer Eddy Reynoso, says whole team are intentional cheaters

Plant didn’t mince words about how he feels about his Team Canelo’s integrity.

Wil Esco is an assistant editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2014.

As the boxing world continues to comment on the latest controversy surrounding Oscar Valdez — who tested positive for a banned substance leading into his title defense — fighters all over are sharing their thoughts.

Valdez is notably trained by former Trainer of the Year Eddy Reynoso as part of Team Canelo, who obviously have their own history of testing positive for banned substances on top of other accusations of foul play. And with another instance of banned a failed drug test from the camp just popping up, lightweight titleholder Devin Haney took aim at Reynoso’s credentials considering what’s transpired.

With that tweet serving as a preface, Caleb Plant would piggyback on Haney’s comments to go on a lengthy social media rant against Canelo and his trainer, outright accusing the entire team of being habitual cheaters in the sport.

“Na, (Eddy Reynoso) and Canelo deserve BITCH of the year!” Plant wrote. “All of them are suspect. Everything out of that camp is intentional. They have the knowledge and experience to know better and the resources to have the best of the best in whatever they want but (tacos) or (beef) or some (tea) is the reason.”

That wasn’t all Plant had to say about Canelo and his team, making sure to completely eviscerate the group with a barrage of strongly-worded tweets indicting their character and integrity.

Plant’s rapid-fire verbal assault on Team Canelo sure caught the admiration of at least some of boxing twitter.

Surely this will only fuel the fire for upcoming undisputed 168-pound title unification between Canelo and Plant, as Canelo will now have to make a point to defend his honor in response to this public shaming.
