Golden Boy Promotions, Fathom Events and O'Reilly Auto Parts will present a match-up between two of boxing's biggest stars with Canelo Alvarez vs. Amir Khan, broadcast live from Las Vegas' new T-Mobile Arena on Cinco De Mayo weekend.

Canelo's WBC world title will be at stake, at a catch-weight of 155-pounds. At the WBC's 30-day weight check, Canelo came in at 163.8-pounds. Khan's 30 day weight was not available at the moment.

Additionally, three exciting fights have been confirmed leading up to the Canelo vs. Khan mega-fight. In the co-main event of the evening, Canada's biggest boxing star and former IBF Middleweight World Champion David Lemieux (34-3, 31 KOs) will be looking to make an impression and use his power against the swift contender from Passaic, New Jersey, Glen "Jersey Boy" Tapia (23-2, 15 KOs) in a scheduled 10-round middleweight fight.

Opening up the televised undercard, Patrick Teixeira (26-0, 22 KOs) will face Curtis Stevens (27-5, 20 KOs) in a ten-round career-defining middleweight bout.
 
At the age of 25, Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico's Canelo Alvarez (46-1-1, 32 KOs), the current WBC, Ring Magazine and Lineal Middleweight World Champion, has conquered the boxing world, captivating fans both at home and around the globe with his action-packed fighting style, charisma and willingness to take on the toughest challenges. The 2015 Fighter of the Year candidate's road to stardom began in 2011 with a win over Matthew "Magic" Hatton for the vacant WBC Super Welterweight World title. On November 21, 2015, Canelo defeated future Hall-of-Famer Miguel Cotto for the WBC, RING Magazine and Lineal Middleweight Championship in front of a packed arena at the Mandalay Events Center in Las Vegas and more than 900,000 homes across the country. The unanimous decision victory cemented Canelo's status as boxing's biggest draw and among the best pound-for-pound fighters in the world.
