Canelo Alvarez will be fighting british sensation Amir Khan for the WBC middleweight title fight on Saturday, 07 May 2016 in Las Vegas, USA. Its a massive fight and will be broadcasted live in the USA on HBO pay per view. The hype surrounding the fight is quite big and it might do pretty well on the PPV scale. Probably not as big as Canelo-Cotto which took place in 2015 but we can expect a full house and easily more than 500,000 ppv buys in USA.
Amir Khan has a big following in United Kingdom as well and the way this fight is getting publicity. Khan has loyal fanbase who obviosly want him to succeed while large number of UK fans want to see him get beat which makes him equally popular. Although in a surprising development BoxNation has outbid SkySports for the live rights in the UK. It will be a non-PPV fight in UK set to be broadcasted live on boxnation.
