The event will be produced and distributed live by Showtime PPV.

For a complete list of theater locations and prices, visit the Fathom Events website (theaters and participants are subject to change). The event will be broadcast to nearly 200 select movie theaters across the country through Fathom's Digital Broadcast Network.
 
"I'm expecting one of the toughest fights of my career on July 12," said Canelo Alvarez. "So knowing that I'll have my fans cheering me on, not just in the arena but in movie theaters throughout the country, has me even more motivated to beat Erislandy Lara and give the fans a fight to remember."

"This is the fight that the fans and I demanded and now they will get to see it on a grand scale," said Lara. "There is no better situation in boxing then to see two hungry fighters willing to put everything on the line for the honor and glory of their fans. I'll be sending a strong message to the world come July 12th, that you can count on!"
 
Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico's Canelo Alvarez (43-1-1, 31 KOs) is one of the most compelling figures in the fight game today. A former world champion and still just 23-years-old, Canelo has captivated fans around the world with his exciting fighting style and charisma in and out of the ring. A professional since 2005, Canelo won the WBC Junior Middleweight Title in 2011 and successfully defended it five times before unifying the championship with a 2013 victory over Austin Trout. A mega-fight with Mayweather followed five months later. Although he lost a hard-fought decision to the pound-for-pound king last September, Canelo got back on track in March with a 10th round-technical knockout win over Alfredo Angulo.
 
Slick southpaw Erislandy "The American Dream" Lara (19-1-2, 12 KOs) graduated from the renowned Cuban amateur boxing program and migrated to the United States to pursue a professional boxing career. As a young contender on the rise, Lara suffered a controversial decision loss to Paul Williams in 2011. Since then, he has done his best to take it out of the judges' hands by knocking out Ronald Hearns and Angulo, with the latter victory earning him the WBA Junior Middleweight World Championship. In his most recent bout, Lara won a 12-round unanimous decision over Trout on Dec. 7, 2013, and now the 31-year-old, who makes his home in Houston, will attempt to give Canelo a boxing lesson on July 12.
 
"Fight fans will not want to miss this epic bout between Canelo Alvarez and Erislandy Lara," said John Rubey, CEO of Fathom Events. "Seeing this event on the big screen will be as close as you can get to a ring-side experience!"
