Canelo Alvarez and Daniel Jacobs will meet in T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Saturday, May 4, with the WBC, WBA, and IBF middleweight titles all on the line. The fights will stream live on DAZN, but U.S. viewers will have another option, too, as Golden Boy has partnered again with Fathom Events to bring the event to movie theaters nationwide.
“We are proud to partner again with our friends at Golden Boy to bring this unification bout to cinemas nationwide,” said Ray Nutt, Fathom Events CEO. “Fight fans have loved watching Canelo on the big screen and we expect them to really enjoy this battle with Daniel Jacobs.”
Canelo-Jacobs promises to be one of the biggest fights of 2018, with three of the four titles at 160 pounds on the line. The undercard was also recently announced, and will feature David Lemieux vs John Ryder, plus a slew of other fights.
The movie theater experience will start at traditional “pay-per-view” time of 9 pm ET, so you won’t get the full card you do with DAZN, but it’ll also be on a giant screen, so there’s that.
