Canelo Alvarez is lining up a huge 60,000 plus gathering to mark the opening of the all-new Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada. The Mexican pound for pound hero, who is massively affiliated with the state, is aiming to headline at the venue for September 2020. Currently under construction, the new purpose-built home for the Las Vegas Raiders NFL team, is due to open in August of next year.

Extreme weather conditions in Vegas mean the arena needs a roof. Something which suits hosting boxing events to a tee

Golden Boy Chairman Oscar De La Hoya has already put the feelers out on Canelo staging what would be one of the biggest boxing cards of all time. By Mexican Independence Day Weekend in twelve months, fans can expect the sport to begin a big presence at what will be a huge rival for the AT & T Stadium in Texas.

Ryan Garcia, the new generation of GBP superstars, is being earmarked to co-feature alongside Canelo. Both are set to fight on November 2nd as Canelo bids to win a fourth-weight world title against Sergey Kovalev on November 2nd.
