Canelo-Trout: 15,000 Tickets Sold, Huge Crowd Expected

By Miguel Rivera

According to Ramiro Gonzalez, public relations director for Golden Boy Promotions, there have already been 15,000 tickets sold in two days for the junior middleweight unification between Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (41-0-1, 30KOs) and Austin Trout (26-0, 14KOs), taking place on April 20th at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas.

"In two days 15,000 tickets were sold including the most expensive seats at ringside, so we expect 35 to 40 thousand spectators at the Alamodome for the fight with Trout," Gonzalez said.

Back in 1993, a record attendance of over 58,000 came to Julio Cesar Chavez take on Pernell Whitaker for the WBC welterweight crown. 

"Now Canelo can write his own story and he will definitely have a large mass of fans on April 20 against Trout, in a fight where Saul puts his unbeaten record on and should prove to be the next world figure in boxing," Gonzalez explained. "Saul is a charismatic fighter, a box office hit and he will confirm [his worth] with Austin Trout in a real test."
