The September 16 fight between Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin is officially sold out at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, according to a press release sent out today.
“The boxing public fully understands that this is the biggest fight in many years, and everyone at T-Mobile Arena on September 16 is going to experience a once-in-a-lifetime thrill of watching the two biggest stars in the sport go toe-to-toe,” Oscar De La Hoya said.
De La Hoya added, “As we want as many people as possible in Las Vegas for Mexican Independence Day Weekend to experience this battle for the ages, we will soon announce venues showing the fight on closed circuit. And, of course, the best sports network in the business, HBO will present ‘Supremacy: Canelo vs. Golovkin’ on its pay-per-view platform.”
K2 Promotions’ Tom Loeffler echoed De La Hoya’s thoughts.
“We are grateful for the response from the fans and excited to announce all the tickets being sold out,” said Loeffler, who promotes Golovkin. “When you put two of the best boxers in the sport and two of the best ticket sellers together, this is the result you get. GGG has now sold out arenas in New York, Los Angeles, Monaco, and London. Now we can add Las Vegas to his resume. It’s the biggest fan and media response we have ever seen and this event should be as exciting in the ring on fight night as it has been for the build up leading to the fight.”
