T-Mobile Arena is all set for the biggest boxing event between Canelo and Golovkin on September 17, 2022.
Gennadiy golovkin vs Canelo Alvarez 3 was announced in May as they would be battling it out for the super middleweight title. At the time, however, no venue was announced. This is no longer true.
Tuesday saw the announcement that Alvarez vs. Golovkin would be held in Las Vegas’ T-Mobile Arena. The general public can purchase tickets on Monday, June 27, at 1 p.m. ET/10:30 PT/6:45 GMT at AXS.com.
GGG III vs. Canelo will be broadcast live on DAZN TV in the USA and Canada, as well as around the globe on DAZN (except Mexico, Latin America and Kazakhstan).
Alvarez will be returning to the site of their epic fights in September 2017. The September 2017 fight ended in a draw. It was unanimously agreed that Golovkin had done enough to win the victory. Alvarez won the rematch by majority decision one year later.
After defeating Caleb Plant at 168 pounds in November, Alvarez moved up to light-heavyweight to try to beat Dmitry Bivol (WBA super) twice. Bivol had other ideas and won by unanimous decision Alvarez’s first loss in more than eight years.
Golovkin, who was traveling to Japan in April, beat Ryoto Mura by ninth-round TKO. This win added the WBA (superior) middleweight title to Golovkin’s IBF belt. GGG now has the chance to revenge two fights he felt should’ve gone his way.
T-Mobile Arena will host Canelo vs Golovkin Third Fight
They have unfinished business that they want to resolve between them in front of another group of 20,000.
After losing to Dmitry Bivol in May, Canelo now has something to prove. As Canelo won the first round, the crowd gasped in relief.
Now it’s up to the Mexican star to put an end to his three-fight saga, which he has been waging with his most important career rival.
From the opening bell in Nevada, fireworks will explode.
