WBA and WBC champion Mexican boxer Saul Canelo Alvarez and WBO champion British Billy Joe Saunders compete on Saturday to reshape the super middleweight title in front of as many as 70,000 spectators. They fight the pandemic at Arlington Stadium . Texas.
Since the pandemic began, this will be a record number of spectators in a sporting event. According to the promoter Eddie Hearn, there will also be a boxing match audience record in the covered boxing ring in the United States. In 1978, Leon Spinks defeated the legendary Mohamed Ali at the Superdome in New Orleans in front of 63,352 people.
He will be boxing at the huge AT&T Stadium where the Dallas Cowboys NFL team is located, and the atmosphere there is even hotter due to Mexico’s national holiday Cinco de Mayo.
The legend Floyd Mayweather gave the Mexican 55 victories, 2 draws and 1 loss in 2013, while the Englishman Sanders was undefeated in 30 professional battles.
