Canelo-Jacobs Gross $8.7 Million At Box Office
While the numbers fall short to some of his more recent performances, Canelo Alvarez once again proved to be a box office success against Daniel Jacobs.
Adding the IBF middleweight title to his impressive resume, Alvarez’ twelve round unanimous decision win on May 4th would see a live gate of $8.685.750 from 15,730 tickets sold at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The numbers from the Nevada State Athletic Commission show that 1,388 comp tickets were issued, for the event, falling short of the announced attendance of 20,203 on fight night.
Even though the numbers would just beat out his lowest main event gate of $7.4 million for his 2016 knockout of Amir Khan, it has taken the top spot for 2019, exceeding the previous best held by Manny Pacquiao and Adrien Broner with $6 million for their January 19th fight at the MGM Grand.
Per Boxing Scene, the Jacobs fight saw a 68% decline in gate receipts from his 2018 win over Gennady Golovkin, which saw $27 million made at the box office, third highest in Vegas history behind Mayweather-Pacquiao $72.2 million) and Mayweather-McGregor ($55.4 million).
