Alvarez vs. Ortiz on Showtime PPV from MGM Grand, Las Vegas - "Knockout Kings" PPV
Golden Boy announced in a media conference call Tuesday afternoon that Saul "Canelo" Alvarez will meet Victor Ortiz on his scheduled September 15th date. The Canelo vs. Ortiz fight will be for Canelo's WBC 154 lbs title and will be available on Showtime Pay-Per-View, taking place from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, NV. The event is titled "Knockout Kings", in response to the recent judging controversies plaguing the sport.
The idea is to host an event where the judges aren't even required, and for the fighters, there's a special bonus - a $100,000 check which will go to the "Knockout King" of the evening.
