Jerry Jones wants GGG Vs. Canelo super-fight at his AT & T stadium in Dallas this September

It’s the middleweight unification the entire world wants to see, including Dallas Cowboys owner, Jerry Jones. It’s Saul “Canelo” Alvarez Vs. Gennady “GGG” Golovkin, and for a few months now, we’ve all wanted to see who is the best 160-pounder on the planet. If the billionaire fight fan gets his way, we will find out this September at The A T& T stadium in Dallas.

Tom Loeffler, promoter of the fighter dubbed The most feared man in Boxing, spoke with TMZ Sports and he said that he too would love to see the mega-fight take place at the huge Dallas stadium.

“Jerry Jones has watched GGG’s last few fights and he expressed a big interest in having the fight in Dallas at his stadium,” Loeffler said. “GGG will fight anywhere, but he’s aware of Jerry Jones and the atmosphere in his stadium. You hear 70,000 people screaming – the huge video board – it’s an amazing venue. And GGG understand the popularity of The Cowboys, the influence they have in the U.S and around the world. I’d love to see it happen.”

According to the TMZ article, Loeffler says there are two other big venues in with a shout of hosting the super-fight: The MGM Grand in Las Vegas and Madison Square Garden in New York. Also, TMZ inform us that they are informed the working date for Golovkin-Alvarez is September 17th.

As we do know for a fact, Golovkin must first take care of his IBF mandatory, Dominic Wade on April 23rd, and Canelo has a big event of a fight with Britain’s Amir Khan to win on May 7th. Needless to say, if the unthinkable happened and either superstar fighter lost, their showdown would either fall apart completely or lose a good deal of its lustre.

Jones has played host to big fights before, most recently the dud that was Manny Pacquiao-Joshua Clottey. Fans the world over need not worry about Canelo Vs. GGG being anything but as great a fight as the awesome surroundings of the stadium that might well hold it.
