Brooklyn, N.Y. – The suspense of where this mega fight will take place is killing me as well as fight fans from all over the world. It’s drawing out like a great movie, on the verge of reaching its climatic scene during the first quarter of the movie. Similar to losing a favorite/star character in a surprising moment boxing fans are eagerly awaiting the decision as to where the middleweight mega fight between Saul “Canelo” Alvarez vs Gennady “GGG” Golovkin will take place.

As fight fans await the confirmed location both fighters are preparing to go on a huge promotional tour that has the possibility of spanning not only the United States but also stops in London, Tokyo, Dubai, and so on.

When you envision a fight of this magnitude finally taking place there’s no doubt that you’ll want to attend not only the media and promotional tour but the actual fight itself. The goosebumps are raised; the blood and adrenaline is pumping; each day you can feel electricity is in the air.

The question still remains: who will be victorious on fight night? Betting odds have the reigning, defending WBA (Super), WBC, IBF, and IBO middleweight champion Golovkin (37-0, 33 KOs) as the favorite going into the fight and one can deny those odds, unless you’re Alvaraez (49-1-1, 34 KOs).

With only one blemish on his record (a loss against the great and now retired Floyd Mayweather (49-0, 26 KOs) will Alvarez be able to keep the Kazak warrior at bay and utilize all the boxing skill and knowledge that he has ascertained throughout his career or will Golovkin hunt him down and dominate the fight as he has done countless times over against several of his opponents.

A fight, for the Ring and lineal middleweight titles, soon awaits the world. Wherever the fight takes place it will surely be a sold-out event featuring tons of celebrities and athletes from all sports. Whether in a stadium or arena, the roof will be blown off the building come fight night.

Early reports from the President of Golden Boy Promotions Eric Gomez suggest that there are several venues of where this expected action-packed fight can take place at:

  • AT&T Stadium in Arlington, TX (home of America’s team the Dallas Cowboys)
  • T-Mobile Arena, Las Vegas, NV
  • Dodger Stadium, Los Angeles, CA
  • Madison Square Garden, New York, N.Y. (the MECCA of all sports entertainment)
