Canelo-GGG Rematch Near Sell-Out
With a little over a month until their highly anticipated rematch, tickets for IBO, WBA, WBC middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin and Mexican superstar Saul “Canelo” Alvarez is close to being sold out.
“The truth is that ticket sales are going very well, we have a little more than 2,000 tickets, just the promotional stage is coming so we hope to have the tickets sold out by the end of this month or the beginning of next month. We have a lot of things to compete with….. the World Cup just ended, we have the NFL, Major League Baseball, other events,” said Golden Boy Promotions President, Eric Gomez to ESPN Deportes.
“A month away is when you start pushing everything, you start with the strongest promotion, and we have already sold more than 17,500 tickets. We can certainly say that it will be a great entry for September 15 in the ‘ Super Bowl ‘of boxing.”
The first card would reach a gate over $27 million dollars with 17,318 tickets sold at the T-Mobile arena, which sold more tickets but a lesser gate than the $72 million made when Floyd Mayweather faced off against Manny Pacquiao.
