HBO has the broadcasting rights to the fight in the United States, while BoxNation has been chosen as the UK broadcaster and is set to launch its pay-per-view platform with the mouthwatering showdown.

Ticket details for the fight will be revealed later this week, while news of the pay-per-view is to come in due course.

Also revealed at the presser, which featured both fighters, as well as their trainers, promoters and BoxNation CEO and chairman George Warren and Frank Warren among others, was that Billy Joe Saunders will defend his world title on the same night as part of a double-header.

Saunders will put his WBO world middleweight crown at stake at the Copper Box Arena in London against an opponent to be named in the hope that a victory will secure him a mega-money fight with the winner of ‘Canelo’ vs. ‘GGG’.
