The previous record belonged to Muhammad Ali and Leon Spinks. Now in America, a new audience record has been set by Saul Alvarez and Billy Joe Saunders – 73,126 spectators. The world record is still held by Anthony Joshua and who welcomed around 78,000 fans at the Cardiff stadium.
Either way, the gala with the superweight fighters was very exciting, with Eddie Hearn achieving another success and still leaving the boxing stables behind. Without a doubt, Matchroom Boxing brings together the best boxers and organizes the best and biggest events. Behind the promoter’s success is his ability to negotiate. In recent years, he has contracted the largest duels for Joshua, Alvarez, Golovkin, Okoli, Lomachenka and Usyk.
As for the victorious Mexican, he will strive to bring about his fight against Caleb Plant and win the IBF title. Thus, the Mexican will lead to unification and clear another weight category. Without deceiving himself, ‘Canelo’ is an unbelievable boxer, and the only risk he would have taken if he agreed to further light heavyweight matches.
