(Boxing) Gennady Golovkin-Canelo Alvarez Fight Booked For T-Mobile Arena In Las Vegas

The long anticipated fight between Gennady Golovkin-Canelo Alvarez, now has a venue. The T- Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, scheduled to hold on the 16th of September.

The fight which was announced after the split decision victory of Canelo Alvarez over Julio Cesar Chavez Jr back in May 6th in front of a sellout record crowd of 20,501 at T-Mobile Arena was given a date (16th Sept)  but no venue.
Announced by the CEO of Golden Boy Promotions, Oscar De La Hoya on Sports Center, this big even will hold at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on the 16th of September.

"Everybody wanted this fight, and I nailed it down," said De La Hoya, who predicted that Canelo will knock out GGG. "Everybody who wants to go to Vegas, have a great time. Watch a great fight with Triple G and Canelo. I mean it's going to be a train wreck, let me tell you."
"I did receive a crazy amount of money -- the offers were just amazing [including] from Madison Square Garden. I was contemplating it," De La Hoya said. "Obviously, my good friend Jerry Jones wanted this fight. I talked to my great friend Magic Johnson, who wanted to stage the fight at Dodger Stadium, but ultimately the entertainment factor [was key]. People want to go to parties after the fight. You want to stage the pre-fight parties, the weigh-in."

"I have repeatedly said that I fear no man, and I am now going to prove it by stepping into the ring against GGG. When the final bell rings, everyone will know that this is indeed the Canelo era, and that I am the best fighter in all of boxing."
