T-Mobile Arena wants to host Canelo vs. Golovkin III
T-Mobile Arena wants to host Canelo vs. Golovkin III. It is not an exaggerating wish since Canelo and GGG had their final two fights in the T-Mobile Arena.
The third fight between Mexico’s Saul Canelo Alvarez and Kazakhstan’s Gennady Golovkin is scheduled on September 17 in Las Vegas’ T-Mobile Arena.
The third bout will take place at T-Mobile Arena, according to various ESPN sources.
The first two fights between Canelo and GGG took place in the T-Mobile Arena. Folks would not be surprised if the third matches to the latter.
Boxers Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin have the ability to fight anywhere in the world. Given their enmity for one another and the fact that they’ve already fought two epic battles, it’s a fascinating thought.
Canelo’s most recent fight, a loss against Bivol, was also happening at the T-Mobile Arena. Canelo Alvarez will defend his title for the sixth time. Daniel Jacobs, Julio Cesar Chavez Jr., and Amir Khan have all fought at this venue.
Canelo vs. Khan was the first fight in the venue, which opened in 2016. It was immediately followed by UFC 200: Tate vs. Nunes. The Las Vegas stadium has since held boxing, UFC, and professional wrestling events.
Canelo and GGG made $27.05 million in their first fight of 2017, putting them in third position at the box office.
The rematch grossed $24.47 million in 2018, ranking fourth.
Before Canelo and Golovkin broke the record, only two Floyd Mayweather fights had produced more money: $72.1 million and $55.4 million.
The greatest money was there by the fight between Mayweather Jr. and Pacquiao at the MGM Grand Garden Arena. The Dallas Cowboys’ AT&T Stadium and the Las Vegas Raiders’ Allegiant Stadium have both indicated interest in hosting the game.
If the third encounter at T-Mobile arena, Canelo could be making his sixth visit to that special venue. He has four victories, one tie, and one defeat (to GGG).
After four years, Canelo and Golovkin will square off again.
Ticket sales for the first bout were the third highest in boxing history. Ticket sales for the fight alone totaled $27,059,850. The pay-per-view numbers for the bout were also excellent, with over 1.3 million people apparently watching.
The second battle grossed the same amount as the first. With a total of $23,473,500, it was the fourth most profitable boxing match in the state’s history. Pay-per-view sales for the first fight fell to 1.1 million when the price was raised. The $84.95 Canelo vs. Golovkin II ticket was a real treat.
Canelo Alvarez’s fight with Dmitry Bivol, on the other hand, is said to have sold fewer than 300,000 copies. However, Hearn believes the genuine value was closer to 600,000 pounds. The event’s broadcaster, DAZN, has yet to provide official pay-per-view stats.
The third fight between Canelo and Golovkin will definitely excite spectators worldwide. This is Canelo’s final chance to defend his undisputed middleweight title as well as his four global belts. Canelo recently lost a fight, and Golovkin’s career is coming to an end.
