"Triple G" Vs. Canelo Alvarez Set For Las Vegas

Big Triple G Alvarez title fight to be in Las Vegas

Big Triple G Alvarez title fight to be in Las Vegas

Watch a great fight with Triple G (Golovkin) and Canelo.

Las Vegas and the T-Mobile Arena hosted Canelo's last bout in May, where he dominated Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. over 12 rounds. And let's not forget the Keith Thurman-Danny Garcia brawl on March 4, followed two weeks later by the Gennady Golovkin -Daniel Jacobs fight on March 18, which many thought Jacobs won. On June 24, former two-time world champion Kermit Cintron will take on former knockout king Tyrone Brunson at the 2300 Arena, and June 27, at the Sands Bethlehem Event Center, a welterweight rematch between Alex Martin and Miguel Cruz, who win the first fight on a controversial split-decision.

AT&T Stadium has had to be content with such off-Las Vegas matchups. De la Hoya did mention some of the other venues in consideration.

The T-Mobile Arena will mark the return to a happy stomping ground for Canelo Alvarez in particular - having scored one of the knockouts of 2016 at the venue against British fighter Amir Khan a year ago. The fight hasn't been listed on the T-Mobile Arena website, while TicketMaster allows you to set up alerts for when tickets are available.

"We had to wait for a long time", Loeffler said. Despite rumors that Golden Boy Promotions wanted to stage the fight in a stadium, and that places like Madison Square Garden, AT&T Stadium in Dallas, and Dodger Stadium in LA were all in play, De La Hoya made a decision to keep the fight in the boxing capital of the world.

The biggest difference is the addition of Durant, who left Oklahoma City in the offseason to sign with Golden State . San Antonio has faced an uphill battle with All-Star Kawhi Leonard out of the lineup with a sprained left ankle.

De La Hoya and his staff declined to reveal terms of the T-Mobile Arena deal, but MGM Resorts, boosted by the massive spending of heavy crowds and high-rolling gamblers on such a fight week, has a proud history of outbidding larger venues for super-fights.

"Obviously, there's a lot of little details" that helped Las Vegas, De La Hoya said. "Gennady's reward, and the fans' reward, will be battling in the biggest and best matchup in the sport of boxing". I talked to my great friend Magic Johnson, who wanted to stage the fight at Dodger Stadium, but ultimately the entertainment factor [was key].

"It's official! We're going back to Vegas!"

De La Hoya, who announced the fight during an appearance on ESPN, said the fight between two boxers who are all action and big punchers will help fans forget the 2015 bout between Mayweather and Pacquiao that didn't live up to expectations.
